Hello, a friend wants to sell his bike which is a Specialized Tricross Sport 2011 (small). I've seen it and it's been well maintained in very good condition, but neither he nor I know its realistic value. Can anyone advise? PM me if you prefer. Thank you.

may be a different groupset.
Used price of 375 seems a bit high for this age, perhaps knock 100-150 off?

I bought this 2010 Tricross Comp a few weeks ago. It is a superior model to the Sport with a lighter SLX alloy frame, carbon front forks and carbon rear stays, Shimano 105 10 speed and some lovely Roval wheels. The original RRP was £1299 but on eBay I paid £127!

I would suggest asking around £250 for your friends bike.
The Tricross although a little dated is a superb bike.

, its a very old bike and its very dated now.
Since when did something become "very old" after 7 years and in what way does a bike become "very dated"? It's got a frame, two wheels, a set of gears, brakes, bars and saddle. All bikes have these features irrespective of when they were made. I would agree with you that the bike HAS depreciated away most of it's original value, no argument from me on that score, but I find it rather curious how something made only 7 years ago is now considered "very old". The average age of my bikes is in excess of 20 years and the oldest one is 33/34 years old, and I don't even consider those to be anything exceptional in terms of age.

I suppose it depends what your starting point is. When I was a youngster my bikes all had steel wheels and side-pull brakes, and stopping in the wet was "interesting" at times! Therefore, from having bikes that you might have to leap off at a junction whilst still in motion to avoid a crash, I consider anything with alloy rims and cantis as absolute luxury in terms of stopping power in the wet. Consequently, I have no desire to have discs, and I think they look ugly anyway and totally spoil the appearance of what might otherwise be a nice looking machine. Similarly, I don't have any problem with traditional visibly-routed brake cables - in fact I rather prefer them, and any supposed "aero" advantage from internal routings is negligible anyway.
 
Thats too high, its a very old bike and its very dated now.
oops sorry , I didn't know only your opinion matters
