How much to pay for a 2005 Model Scott Nitrous 20

Looking for some advice on the above bike. Here's the spec: (taken directly from the seller's description)
 
Manitou adjustable compression/rebound front suspension Stance Blunt fork, rear suspension is also adjustable to suit diff weights/terrain. Hayes hydraulic f/b brakes. 27 speed quickfire shimano deo're gears.
 
He wants £550 for it but unsure of whether thats a good price as no listings on anyother websites to give me a comparison. Any bike enthusiasts guidance would be much appreciated as it looks like a cracking bike.
 
Thanks

    seems quite high for second hand, without seeing condition and other components, but the gears for eg are low spec.
    my experience with bikes is that they dont hold value well and you can get some reall good second hand for the money

    Thanks for the reply.
     
    Yea thats my thoughts so wanted some more feedback on the price. No pics but he has emailed some too me and I've phoned him with question on authentication etc happy its a genuine sale.
     
    Im looking for a really good all rounder. Handling everyday use, light downhill, trails that kind of thing.
     
    Thoughts?

    have you seen any others say on ebay that float your boat? im not a fan of the scott brand, and i think that bike is maybe abit heavy duty for light downhill/trails, maybe something abit more lightweight but still good sus travel i dont know.
     
    main thing i dont like about that soctt apart from the brand is the drivetrain but thats me

    Thanks for the Feedback Swordfish I will maybe consider a few things. The iPad 2 is out on Friday as well so may wait until summer ;-)
