I have a med. Softride Power V frame (in good cond.) I'm planning to part ways with. What is a reasonable/fair price??


Not as much at the end of the summer as she might be...Marketing Dept

at the beginning.

Right about now begins the buyer's market on bikes. Folks are through riding and would rather sell than store it up. There are not as many buyers now because, who wants a new bike when snow is right around the corner?

If you really want to move it, put it on ebay for 9 days and let her go. Also place an add in the classifieds here.

As far as price? If you are talking about nice paint, good carbon everywhere, I'd guess <$400.00, IF you find the buyer who wants a beam bike.

They are awesome, aero and all that, but they are just not mainstream. To get the bucks, you gotta get it out there and ebay is the place.

I would hold out and sell her in the spring, IMHO.

You might be suprised, but that thing could bring in $800.

I think the one you have is the carbon frame, correct? I have heard that they are still prized by the tri guys. I know a couple of people who have them, and they would not part with them for anything.

As stated above, this is definately not the best time of year to be selling a bike, I would probably wait until spring.
