|What would you pay for a Raleigh R600 from 2000 that is in good condition? (original retail ~$1,050 ) Or is there a basic formula you'd consider for used bikes, factoring in the number of years since its make?|

|... how is the bike equipped (components and wheels)?
While few would pay close to new retail on the average used bike, there are rare exceptions (rare or expensive frames/components and/or collectables)... but with respect to a formula... though it's arguable, there isn't any... more of what the market will bear (some might suggest up to 50% off the original retail for a 3 year old... but if the seller ain't motivated... and the buyer is...)
Be the bike.
