Hi
I have a new very nice Giant TCR full carbon that I love, but it is too small for me, so I will be selling it and I need your help to price it right.
It is 2003, a few months old, used just a few times, Giant medium TCR full carbon frame/ fork, w/ Campy Record, Easton carbon handlebar & carbon stem as well, carbon seat post. Speedplay pedals, under 17 lbs.
A new TCR bike, Record equiped retails for about $3500, a new w/ Dura-ace for about $2800.00.
Any seugestions appreciated as for the price and where to advertise it to sell it fast.
Thanks.

how one goes about buying a NEW (implies this was purchased at your LBS) $3500 bike that doesn't fit?

No offence..but just how does this happen?

It does boggle the mind- I mean even people made out of money are usually somewhat conscious how they spend it- and frankly, some of the most wealthy people I know are also the cheapest... so I don't think it is common for someone to just drop $3000 on a first bike.

This goes to the next possibility that this is leading up to yet another Western Union scam... ;)
sell the frame onlygtx

put it on eBay, no reserve. Swap the parts to a frame that does fit.

Ebay is a good place to get top dollar but the vagaries of the "market" can dictate less. The classifieds here are a real bargain and I think heavily used.

You'll take a big hit on this one... probably be able to get $2000-$2500 but not more since most manufacturers only honor warranties to the original purchaser and buyers expect big savings when they buy used (since they are undertaking some risk).
