I am trying to sell my old road bike its in good condition for its age mostly rack scratches. Anything helpful i should add or remove? I am trying to get about 400 for it. Thanks for any feed back. Here is the link http://pennstate.craigslist.org/bik/2225946309.html

Lower the stem and raise the seat to give it a more aggressive, racing-bike looks. The wording is kind of messy, I think if you list the components it makes it easier for people to see what they are getting. For what it is worth, I myself think that the bike is overprice by about $200; it will be gone in a day if you ask for $250

11/12 year old RSX bike = $325 around here. GTs don't get the response that some brands get here.

I would start at $400 in Boston. I bet I would get $350 in the spring for sure...I've sold much less for $300.
Have you had any bites at $425? If not, and you are motivated to sell I say bring it down a few bucks.
Here the demand is pretty high college town(penn state) with 40k kids, not too worried on the price yet. Edited the post with the list which is a good idea got two hits on it tonight.
Man that is some STI bump. I wonder if the frame rides better than it looks :p
Two people coming to look at it tomorrow. It rides nice just not as nice as the cdale i picked up but great starter bike for me.

it still may be tough sell up there is the sticks. from what I understand the 40k kids in State College are more interested in drinking than cycling.
nice looking bike though, I am sort of looking a Triple Triangle frame but in steel.
I use to have a steel triple timberline mtn bike i miss that thing. One person loved the bike who came too look he was just to short like 5'7. Another guy looking tomorrow if the weather breaks it will be gone in a week. Yea stupid state pattys day made up drinking day. Side note bike sold within the week for $390
