Value of a '03 Fondriest Carbon(6 posts)

Value of a '03 Fondriest Carbonmaurizio

Looks like I have to sell my 2 month old Fondriest Carbon as our team is inking a deal with a bike company.
What do you think the value of a Fondriest Carbon Frame, Mizuno Carbon Fork, Fondriest DDS headset, Campy Chorus BB and Deda Black Stick seatpost is?
What about the value of the whole bike with Full 10sp Record (chorus BB)?
It may be easier to sell the thing complete.
Thoughts?

I'll give you $499 for it all, regardless of size. :)

That is unless you put together a real slick presentation and put it on ebay. Then you might get more than you paid for it.

which is NOT a good deal. why not keep the bike and use it outside of races? the cat 3 team is sponsored by Felt. some of them use their Felts just for crits, some all the time.

Option 1: If you can afford it, Keep the bike and use it for training rides. By new components, put them on the Fondriest, put your current stuff on the team bike for racing. Might as well crash the team bike with older components in the race anyways right?

Option 2: Sell the frameset, headset, and any parts that don't transfer over to minimize your losses. You're going to take a good hit over what you paid new for it.

I wouldn't sell the complete bike. If the rest of your components are in tip top shape, you are just going to be taking a bigger hit by selling it as a complete bike.
