Can you give your opinion of what this may be worth

Cannondale R2000si frame with Time Slice forks (brand new never ridden)
Full Dura Ace group (used)
Cannondale's Mavic Open Pro Rims

Thanks in advance

I'd say maybe $1k-$1500. That's really just a stab and it depends on the condition and year of the DA group, and on the other components on the bike. If it's old 8spd stuff, that'll bring the price down. And brand new stuff will drive it up. Also, R2000si is a complete bike, not a frame. I'm assuming that this is a CAAD4 or CAAD5 frame we're talking about here. It really doesn't make a difference with my rough estimate, but it will when it comes down to final price. Find out:

- which frame this is
- year of frame
- year of components
- other components not in group (pedals, stem, bar, etc.)
- what kind of shape it's in

If you have this we can get closer to giving you an accurate price.

It has all of the R2000si features
2001 Cadd 4
No Pedals
2000-2001 DA
The frame,forks, head set and bars are brand new (has never hit the streets)
The DA looks used but not abused

Pick a number out of the air that you think is fair. If you still have it a month from now, the price was too high. If you sold it, the price was too low. In other words, nobody knows for sure.

I'd agree that $1,000 to $1,500 sounds like a pretty fair range. You need to find just one buyer who thinks so too. Good luck.

If you're selling it, put it on eBay with a reserve price or starting bid you won't accept less than. Then see what happens. Another option is to just do a search in the bicycle section of eBay for Cannondales and follow the auctions for similar bikes. It's been my experience that stuff sells for about what it's worth on eBay, sometimes a little higher or lower.
