    Shimano Group

    I am wanting to sell the entire group from this Tommasini I just bought. Everything goes, including bottom bracket, headset, wheelset, only thing not included would be pedals and seat post. This is all Shimano 600 tri-color group except for the front derailleur which is a like new Dura Ace. The wheelset is a pair of Tru America Matrix rims with brand new Vittoria Rally sew ups. I could sell the wheelset separately but then the group buyer would be out a pair of hubs. I don't have a clue what all this is worth and what would be a fair price. Pictures can be seen here....

    As you can see, most everything is in very good condition, a mark or two on the RD and some marks on the brake levers but the hoods are very good, otherwise everyhting is pretty nice. Thanks for any assistance and information and opinions.

    I think I saw a group sell for around $400 to $500 here and yours seems to be in good condition. Missing the seatpost and front derailleur is kind of a downer to an almost complete group.

    As a group, more like $250, sell each part individually on ebay and you will do better. DT group and single pivot brakes less desirable than 600 STI and dual pivots.

    Are those the 6400 (7 speed) or the 6401 (8 speed) DT shifters? The 6401's are surprisingly hard to find.

    And they easily sell for over $50 when they do show up. After months of trying to score some for cheap, I finally bought the current production Shimano DT 8-sp shifters, which work fine and look decent.

    As for the OP group, sell it seperately. You'll be giving away a lot of value and limiting potential customers. At the very least sell the wheelset separately.

    Agree with T-bill $250 whole, but you could crack $400 as a part-out.

    The bike is 7 speed indexed if that helps. I know next to nothing about Shimano.
