    Raleigh XXIX SS pricing help

    Wondering what y'all think about a bike I'm going to check out on craigys.

    It's a like-new 2009 Raleigh XXIX SS, non-belt drive edition. Asking price is $750, albeit a few upgrades I think this price is too high. They have the upgrades listed with MSRP's.

    • Truvativ Holzfeller Stem (MSRP $59.99)
    • Crank Brothers Mallet M Pedals (MSRP $139.99)
    • San Marco Saddle (MSRP $39.99)
    • Locking Skewers (MSRP $29.99)
    • Oury Grips (MSRP $19.99)
    • Bottle cage (MSRP $4.99)

    Upgrade price comes to ~$300 and were all done about 2 years ago. I've seen other classified for '10/'11 geared models that go for around $600 with more upgrades than this.

    Does offering $450 seem unreasonable? I think the max I'd be willing to pay is $600 but am I getting ripped off at that point?

    I think $400ish is right on track, or even a little generous. His upgrades are $300, at full retail, and they're 2yrs old, so they're really only adding maybe $50-100 in value. And that's really only if they're parts you'd install anyway...
    More than that seems high, unless it's just a bike you're really into and pickings are very slim in your area. There's a 13' Kona Unit here in the classifieds now, that's only $650 shipped.
    Maybe call up some LBS's in your area and see if they have any used bikes in stock. Earlier this year I bought a new Surly 1x1 for $500, that a customer had paid the LBS $2000 to have built. He never picked it up after the build and told the shop to get rid of it, after sitting in their back room for 6mos. An extreme example, but there are deals out there...
    Framebones 29r belt drive, Surly 1x1mid-fat, Nashbar SS 29r half-fat, TommiSea Fatbike, FGFS/Loopwheel, Mini-velo/MTB :ihih:

    I'd think more around $300
