Is this a good deal?(2 posts)

Is this a good deal?scis

A friend of mine has been trying to get me to switch from mountain to road biking for several years. I am finally ready to buy a road bike, but will keep riding mountain as well. Anyway, he has a brand new 2001 Dura-Ace group and set of Mavic Helium wheels that he will sell me to build up a frameset. He is asking $1,000. That seems like a good price to me but I'd appreciate other views.

Thanks

Heliums are outdated. $1000 is OK but it's not a particularly good deal. You could expect to pay $800 for a DA group from www.abicibikes.com - best I've seen so far - and maybe $200 or so for a set of Heliums from lickton's.
