    Is it the right size for you?

    For £450 used I’d be wanting a better groupset than Sora

    Far too black IMO ;)

    Hahaha it is the right size!

    That was my thinking, 450 be looking at tiagra?
    Think ill offer 350 max if not keep looking.

    I like black ha

    Price is a bit steep considering they were about six hundred quid at the finish.
    Check it over thoroughly and offer him 300 and move up to 350 if you have to. I don't think he'll get a better offer. Nice bike.

    I think even £350 is a bit steep for a Sora spec road bike.

    Why’s he selling it? If he thinks he can get £450, leave him to it

    You can get a new Tiagra spec from Merlin for £525

    Can you check what model it is, to me it looks like a 2018 Scott Speedster 20 not a 30, the 20 has a better spec.

    Well he says its a 30 but yeah 2018 he bought it August 18.

    Hes young and think he passed his driving test now no longer needs it to get to work

    Just looked at the link, yeah it does look like a 20 but the specs hes posted are same as i put in op

    personally I think its overpriced for a sora equipped road bike, there is certainly better equipped bikes out there for that price

    Tell him he should get back on his bike and stop damaging the environment unnecessarily (as a youngster he should care more ;))
