    Answer one : whatever soeone is prepared to pay for it.

    Answer two: its impossible to say as you have no detail of spec and condition. Doesn't say what groupset wheels etc it has - I would assume Shiman 2300 or similar - it it was 105 or tiagra he would have mentioned it. He's also vague on the age, I suspect its a lot more that the couple of years he says - the finsih style looks a lot older than that.

    His buy it now price looks a bit ambitious.

  • sounds stolen to me. got it as a present but doesnt rememebr what year he got it? sounds dodgy to me. for the record i bought a 09 allez sport with sora for £350
  • I got a allez with carbon bars, stem, forks, aero bars, seatpost and saddle.

    That looks like an old Allez to me and not worth the £350 he is asking.

    £350 could/ought to get you the Allez Elite with carbon rear stays and Tiagra from 2008 (or a newer Allez if that's what you are looking for).

    For me - £225 ish for your linked Allez

    Yep - being as he 'isn't much of a rider' you have to wonder why he isn't at the same time selling his road shoes that go with those Look pedals......
