I recently had my bike stolen and am very hesitant to spend the kind of money I did before on a new bike... I've been looking at getting a second hand bike (as they seem to lose 50% of value once ridden), and I'm hoping i will get a much better piece of kit for the cash. I'm very close to buying a bike listed locally, but would like some advice as i don't really know that much about them.... The bike i intend on buying is a 2008 Trek 6300, specs and pic shamelessly lifted from interweb below: Frame: Alpha Black Aluminium Fork: RockShox Dart 3 with 100mm travel Gears: Shimano Deore front and rear derailleurs Shifters: Shimano Deore 9 speed Crankset: Shimano M442 Octalink with 44/32/22 Tooth Chainrings Brakes: Avid Juicy 3 hydraulic discs with 185mm front and 160mm rear rotor Wheels: Bontrager Ranger rims built on Shimano M475 disc hubs Tyres: Bontrager Jones XR 26 × 2.2/2.25 Inch Handlebar: Bontrager Select with 25mm rise Stem: Bontrager Select Saddle: Bontrager Race Basic Seatpost: Bontrager Sport Pedals/Extras: Alloy platform pedals What should i be expecting to spend on one of these second hand? Should i even be looking at getting this?
