    Bike blue book says 1272 if a 2012.
    It has an excellent dual air Reba fork and SLX brakes would be the upgrade from Bluesky for 79 a wheel.
    Make sure it fits.

    I'm 6' 190 so I think the geometry would fit me. Thanks for the reply. I'll offer the blue book. I never knew they had blue book for bikes. That's very helpful.

    I offered $1,270 and he said the lowest he would go was $1,500. I can get a brand new Felt Nine 20 for $500 more than he's asking.

    You need to make an offer with your cash in your hand and that's all you bring in person after you ride it and carefully check it over. 1300 may be fair. Chain length, front rings and rear cogs for wear. Rust, scratches and rubs.
    You can't buy that dual air fork, the 2013 is a dumbed down solo air.
    If he has a problem you have to walk.
