    IMO, although the 2012 bikes won't be available until around September, in about 6 weeks, a 2010 bike is really a two year old bike from an inventory standpoint ...


    So, in the United States (for example), with a MSRP in the mid-$3000US range (around $3500, as I recall, but could be wrong about that), you should probably look at $2400 as a "good price" ...

    If you live somewhere where the retail price is closer to $5000 (or, if that is actually the retail price in the United States), then $3280-or-equivalent is a good (and, fair) price -- that is, look to pay about 60-to-65% of whatever the retail price is for the bike for where you live for a NOS, two year old bike.

    Thanks a lot alfeng. It is a two year old model, but the bike is brand new. It's got good reviews: http://www.bikeradar.com/gear/category/bikes/road/product/review-raleigh-avanti-team-10-39628/

    In the US, I only found a version in white and red, $5500 at the time of release, with SRAM Red and a couple of other specs.
