    Medici Pro Strada

    I'm planning on checking this bike out, and wondering if I could haggle the price down.

    http://sgvbicycles.com/index.php?rou...product_id=744

    Is the price about right for the components and frame?

    mmmm. I take it SGV means San Gabriel Valley, CA? if so, it's a fair price if everything is perfect, no issues with the frame or any components and ready to ride. And it fits.
    Otherwise, it's a little high...and if it doesn't fit: forget it.
    These were built in LA, and the quality varied a bit...if it's a good one it's about the same animal as a Masi (which is a very good animal)...if it was built on a bad day you'd be better off looking elsewhere.

    I have watched the prices on these. Their time has yet to arrive and may never. Way overpriced to the market, not to its value as a bicycle. Frame set, worth about $250. maybe, one a bit smaller than this but with the big chrome job just could not get a buyer for more. Full bike, a really clean one a bit smaller sold in Costa Mesa recently, $450. with better parts. Ouch. The Rodney Dangerfield of vintage race bikes.

    Maybe the history, maybe the searching for an identity... for whatever reason they just don't get the market's attention.

    Very steep price for a 600 Ultegra tri-color equipted bike. Very steep.

    I'm thinking $400.

    Just for reference, I sold a very nice Pro Strada last spring on the local CL.

    $425.

    Similar build with a Dura Ace crank.

    Very nice bikes, they ride beautifully.

    Well, it's now almost 2014 and I'm wondering what the value of a Pro Strada frame set is these days.

    Purple 51mm
    Campy dropouts front & rear
    Campy headset
    Campy bottom bracket
    Columbus tubing

    Any opinions ???

    You most probably mean 51 cm. If measured center to center, probably a bit more than center to top.
    These bikes appear to have been on a slow rising tide, but very slow.
    Condition means so much.
    The bottom bracket is good, but at market probably the same w/o, no logic to this, just how it goes.
    Don't yank the headset though.
    The majority were Columbus, so that is expected.

    I don't think you have a $400 frame set though, closer to $250 TOPS. And it might sit at that price.

    Thanks for the info.

    I'll try to post a pic sometime tomorrow.

    It will also come with a matching frame pump

    The two tone paint and matching pump does increase its visual appeal. Wonder why the silver chainstay though.
    Frist Medici I have seen that looks British.

    That's a pretty nice example. I'd guess that you could get $400 (maybe $450?) for it on Ebay, but you'd end up giving back about $60 in fees.

    CL would fetch you less, but would be less work. Price would greatly depend on where you live. $300 in a hot market, $200 in a slower one?

    Good luck! That will make someone very happy!

    Not long ago in Southern California a small Medici like that took about two weeks to sell and it was full Campagnolo.
    It had a $400 asking with an extra set of wheels.
    I think it sold for the parts.

    Thanks for the valued opinions ... I have it out there on Ebay ... I'll let it sit there for a while to see what kind of action it raises.
