My nephew offered me his near new (1995, ridden 5 times) allez sport for $200. Is this a good price for a road bike, I own an older Iron Horse for occasional riding.

Do you know if this is a steel frame? 1995 was around the time that Specialized switched. Not that that necessarily matters. I had a 1994 Allez Sport (steel) and LOVED IT. It got stolen in 1996.

Next, does it have STI shifters? If so, $200 is a very good deal. My guess is that this is RSX or RX-100 components, decent mavic rims, and STI shifters. Anything under $300 is decent, and with low miles you'll get a lot of good use. IMHO, steel would be an even better perk, but that's another thread...
