How much would you pay for this?

http://www.telemarktalk.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?t=37856

I might be setting up a trade with the guy instead of paying, but finding out monetary worth would definitely be advantageous to me. I'll probably end up selling it at Veloswap, at least the frame, to pick up a Cross Check frame + wheels, so any advice is appreciated.

Thanks

It's just hard to know how much abuse that frame has sustained. Components are old too. I would say $125 tops.

Seriously? I know the components are old, but I've seen the entire group going for $600 on ebay. Granted, it was brand new, but despite dirt this guy says he didn't ride the bike much, and I'm apt to think $125 is a bit low.

If I asked $450 for it do you think that would be ridiculous?

Yes, that's too much. I would pay about $200. You might do better by parting it out on e-bay.

I had a Cannondale 3.0 road frame. I gave it, the wheels and some of the bits that came with it to my mechanic, for a tip.

Old Cannondales ride like a tank. Get something else, perhaps you could start a piggy bank or savings account and start saving for it.

$450 sounds quite high to me. Best case, I'd say maybe $200.

yeah, an early aluminum frame is going to be no fun. personally, i'd pass on the deal and, if i was determined on getting an older bike go for steel.
