    What's my Cannondale frame worth?

    The LBS is wrangling for me to trade them my Cannondale R-400 aluminum road frame. The frame has the Suntour front derr., a pair of Shimano 105 downtube levers, a headset & forks, and some Sugino cranks. They want to offer me some trade-in credit toward shop merchandise for my frame. I guess my question is "what equivalent-dollar-amount should I expect go get for this frame?" Since y'all are mechanics, I suppose you'll have a good idea.

    Thanks!

    I just bought a whole Cdale R400 bike for $100.

    I don't know - it has about 127 mm rear dropouts, so I think it isn't a 7, 9, or 10 speed rear. The wheel that was on it (obviously not the stock item) was a Maillard hub with a 6-speed cogwheel. A reasonable guess, then based on your purchase would be somewhere from $50 to $75?

    Thanks again!

    Which equals about $50 out of pocket expense to the bike shop.

    Taking a tip from Siu Blue Wind, I too am typing a lengthy passage of text down here to demonstrate the enormous amount of space available should one wish to use it-- in sharp contrast to the avatar text above this part.

    Don't expect a lot, my friend. If you want to sell it you'll get a bit, but shops aren't going to give you anything near what it's worth. Remember that they've got to sell it for what it's worth.
