Hello all.

I finally am getting my insurance check from being hit about 2 months ago so my wife finally let me go shopping.

I went to a local shop and they have a 2015 Trek Emonda SL8 for 2900. I know they retailed around 4500 but for being now 2 years old is that a good price? It is full Dura Ace with meh wheels.

I would consider myself a decent rider, group rides(avg 20+mph), solo rides, not too many climbs near me here in AZ.

Any thoughts would be great. Thanks

I would say that's a very good price if it's the geometry you want and it is the right size for you. What size frame? Heck, I'd be tempted to get it even though I don't need another bike!

It's an amazing bike. I love mine. It's been awhile since I posted anything special. This past week I put on some Williams Cycling 58's and love them. They roll so fast it's unreal. Besides the owner is my good friend and his mechanic is a close friend of mine. For $2900 is a smoking deal. Is it SRAM Red or Shimano DA 9000? Either way it's equipped well for a fun bike to ride. Here's a picture of mine in all her glory. The stem will be dropped once I get back to my correct fitness level. Go buy it. You won't regret it. Here's a picture of mine. What a great ride.

Very nice! I am going to test ride today. It is full Dura Ace. I plan on replacing the stock wheels with something a little better if I do purchase it.

Thanks all for the responses!
