Good Deal or Great Deal ?(2 posts)

Good Deal or Great Deal ?biketalk

Wife has sudently become interested in riding a roadbike (since I got one this year and love riding it and since she came to watch the worlds in hamilton this past October). Being the off season I have a chance to pickup a 2003 Giant TCR 2 from my LBS (I bought my Guru there and know them very well) for here for around $1550 CDN ~ $1,150 US) and wondered if people think this is worth it? It is the regular spec'd bike with full 105 and cxp22 wheels.

Thanks in advance.
Seems pretty average to me, but check....bent_spoke

for yourself.

It looks like it sold new for about $1300, so saving $150 would be ok, but that's just over 11%. It's "close out" time & there was one person who picked one up for $1000us so you might be able to do better. I'd check around & ask to see if they can do better.
