I've posted my Raleigh here before, but I'm curious to know its value after some upgrades(seat, drivetrain, rear wheel, ect). Thanks

I am not sure what the actual value would be but the brifters did increase the sellability of the bike. were the shifters on the stem before?
also how much of that seatpost is in the frame? is 'min insert' mark in the frame?
Aluminum Raleighs do not get a good response from the market compared to Cannondales and Treks. The 400 was a lower end model, with stem shifters. This one has been nicely upgraded, which I often do myself for personal use, but does not do much for market value. Somewhere around $250, come riding season, maybe a little more. Without the upgrades, $150 to $175. So come time to sell it, I would return it to its original configuration.
Bike originally sold for around $300.
+1 Check the min insert line on that seat post.
DT cable stops are typical stem shifter stops.

It did have stem shifters...and the min insert line is about 1mm out of the frame. Thank you for the information.
