Does anyone have an idea what a reasonable price would be for used but nearly new 2001 model?

The 2002 models are already out, I don't think there are any major differences, but thta still means the price for a new 2001 should be around 2100-2200. Given this, if the bike was really in great shape I would think somewhere around 1800.

But, make sure that all of the original equipment (IE: Ksyrium's) are included with the bike ! I saw a couple classified's where the people were selling the bike, but swapping out the wheels. If it includes the wheels, and if the bike is in perfect shape (and most importantly if it FITS you !) it sounds like a good deal !

Good points. Actually the bike is at Costco, but I saw some posts here some time ago concerning someone who couldn't get CDale to warranty a frame on a bike from Costco. As a result, I decided to treat it in my mind as a used bike, although there would still be warranties on the wheels and running gear I suppose. Unfortunately, Costco wants $2,200 for it which, after the information you gave me, seems like too much.

Hopefully, the two they have (both in my size) will just sit there while others reach the same conclusion and they will reduce the price. Somehow, I don't think they will take my word on them being priced too high.

DCP, I see what your situation is. As I said before you should be able (if you hurry) to get the same bike for the same deal, if not less, from an authorized Cannondale dealer. My LBS has a lifetime service deal, plus they gave me discounts on everything else I wanted to buy (like a computer) and installed it for free. My LBS also spent almost two hours fitting me on the bike swapping out the stem and handlebar, you're not going to get that treatment at Costco. Plus, if there is any problem with the bike you know where to go. It's great to save money, but in the long run a couple of bucks could make a big difference in your overall satisfaction level.
I agree but 1800 is the high mark.Mabero

Cause you might be able to get a deal on 2001 models still laying around for around 2000 or a little lower.
