    Definitely not vintage, but I didn't know where else to go!!!

    I'm a vintage Italian steel and Campy guy, so I really have no idea how much this is worth. I bought this for my wife and it has twenty, yes 20, miles on it. I thinks it's a 2006 or so. I put it on Craigslist for $600 and people are knocking down my door. Makes me think I am not asking enough or else it's the condition that has everyone interested. Please let me know what the value of this is and move this thread somewhere else if it is better placed in a different forum. Thanks!

    A quick look at BikePedia shows the Optimo line as 2007, but came as a CAAD8 or CAAD9 models, with the 9's being higher priced.
    The least expensive MSRP ~ $1,100, the highest ~ $2,500.
    I would say an unridden 4 year old bike should draw about 2/3 of new, so yes, you may be underpriced. You need to determine which model you have.

    Edit: may be a CAAD8 Optimo 1 triple ~$1350 MSRP

    Yes, actually, she does know. I got her this because it's light weight and she recently informed me she has no intention of giving up her mid 70's yellow Centurion, so the weight weenie Cannondale must go.
