What is a good price for a used 55cm Litespeed Catalyst frame and fork (has about 2500 miles on it)?

Tough question there as we don't know the condition, year or the type of fork. I have a Catalyst I am selling, it is built up as a tri bike with syntace aero bars. I have been asking $900.

Now on your one that's low miles for that bike as they no longer make the catalyst as of several years ago.
My guess is $600
Depending on that fork, I would be willing to pay $500-$600

I heard today that you can contact litespeed with a serial number and they can tell you what year the bike was made. Good luck.

will full Ultegra for $950 (I think) a few months back. It had only about 4k on it. It is a nice butted ti frame, but you take a bit of a hit because it is no longer in the LS lineup and will thus be perceived as outdated. Mine was also a 55 cm and I sold it because it was always too long in the top tube.

$500-$600 tops, I am guessing.

Good question, I had a 57 that I had for sale here for 1000.00 with full ultegra and Mavic Cosmos. It did not sell!(glad now since I am using all the parts elsewhere) Year does matter on the Catalyst as there were some pretty major changes made to it in 95 I believe. After that it was very much like the Classic which I believe is why LS dropped it from their line.

Last summer I sold a 95' Catalyst for $1,700 on this site....bear in mind it had a new all carbon fork, new STI's and moderately used Ksyrium wheels. It had about 15,000 miles on it. Seems like I made out well.....and I really enjoy my new KG 381i.

but whoever paid $1700 for a '95 Catalyst really overpaid! Congrats to you by the way. I speak only from jealousy, of course.
