What is this worth? Am I asking for to much?(5 posts)

What is this worth? Am I asking for to much?853

I'm trying to sell this bike asap and want to make sure I am selling it at a resonable price.
I am willing to let it go for $750 w/ speedplay X-2 pedals and a pair of almost new road shoes w/ cleats.It has about 4000 miles in about 7/8 months. Which would mean I averaged 16.5 miles a day on it. Not very used but definetly not stored away for 7 months. Chain and cassette has been changed.
What do you guys think?

I think you are in the ball park. In fact I don't think
it is what you are doing that is a problem. It is
matching up with a buyer; that is, someone
who is looking for what you are selling at this
particular time.
Hope the match up happens soon .
yes-$400-500 is max,maybe less. If you want more try ebay. nmMXL02

not to steal RBR's thunder, but not everyone who hangs on RBM hangs out here. you might get that buyer.
personally, if I were looking for a nice steel bike (and if I were taller), I'd get yours.
honest opinion?tarwheel

Put it up for sale on eBay, with a starting bid price as low as possible. As much as I love RBR, the classifieds here just don't work anymore since they changed the format. It takes forever to call up a page, and the search and sort functions don't work very well. In my experience, eBay seems to get the best prices for sellers. Just make sure you include a very complete description and lots of photos. And be patient because most of the bidding doesn't take place until the end. If that makes you nervous, set a reserve price -- but it won't attract as many bids.
