Would you do this trade? RBT for Waterford 2800
I have an RB-T that I put up for sale for about $500 and immediately got about 4 offers for the bike. 1 of them offered to trade a Waterford 2800 lugged track frame built out of Reynolds 853 (and I think mixed in with some TruTemper) in really good condition for it. I know the Waterford isn't necessarily CV (I think they were produced in yr 2000ish), but CVers know more about Waterford and the value of bike transactions.
The 2800 is slightly too big for me, but I think it will still be rideable. I planned on not riding fixed gear anymore ever since I sold my last track bike and I still don't plan on getting myself 100% involved in it. I would build the bike up with the track parts i have lying around and then, sometime down the line, I will probably sell the 2800 if I get it.
So my question: Which is the more lucrative option? The cash or the 2800. I assume the 2800 is going to be harder to sell, making me resort to Ebay to really get the maximum price.
