|?s for collectors on signed Once team jersey & TCR100||BergMann|

|As some of you know from my post a couple days ago, I've been fortunate enough to win a couple pretty amazing prizes recently in a fantasy game.
This leads me to pose three questions for you serious collectors out there:
What do you think the street (i.e. Ebay) value will be on:
1) a "signed replica Jesey of the Once team"
2) a special, centenary-edition Giant TCR 100?
(more info: http://www.giant-bicycles.com/us/010.000.000/010.000.000.asp?lArticleID=11264&sPageID=010.010.000 )
3) Also: are there better venues than Ebay for advertising cycling collectables?
I am assuming that the Once Jersey will be signed by the entire tour team, and was told by a big regional Giant dealer that there were only 100 of the TCR100s made, and if ordered from the dealer, they will cost around $10,000.
These are amazing objects, but I would like to know what the collecting cog-noscenti think they are worth before I make an informed decision to hold onto them or sell them.

|Value? I haven't a clue.
But if you decide to take that TCR100 on a little spin
around your usual cycling haunts you'll turn heads faster
than if you had Ali Landry on your arm, wrapped only
in saran wrap.
I'd be kind of freaked out to take it out but I'd probably
do it anyway.

|I would be interested in purchasing the TCR 100 from you. What size is it?|
|Serious as a heart-attack. Post email if interested.||BergMann|

|Size can be arranged. I just won the bike as a prize and have yet to actually specify what size frame, post, stem, cranks, etc. I want.
If you can make a serious offer and provide me with some sort of assurance that you're really interested, then I can provide them with _your_ dimensions.
Post your email address, and I'll get in touch with you about it.

|My email is firstname.lastname@example.org and I am definitely serious.|

|Congratulations on your win. I own a 2003 Once Team TCR carbon and must say the ride is sweeter than anything I've tried so far - super light, smooth, stiff...
I'd be afraid to even ride such a collector bike for fear of putting a scratch on it.
