Mileage isn’t the only consideration. Mechanical condition is more important. A high-mileage bike owned by a careful, maintenance-savvy rider is often a better deal than a low-mile bike that’s been thrashed and neglected. Dealers often have to mark down high-mileage bikes to move them, which can make them a better deal, but the current market has enough low-mile machines in it that it’s often tough to sell a really “experienced” bike. Think again, though; if you’ve found the bike you want, in the color you like, and it has the options you want, don’t discount it just because it has some miles. Look a little deeper before you move on.
