    Price for an '07 Roubaix Comp frameset?

    Hey, people.

    I've come across a 2007 Roubaix Comp frameset--frame, fork, and headset. For those who know, what is a good offer to make for such a frameset? Seller says it is new, which means it was once a complete bike that was parted out "by professional mechanics." The complete bike retailed for $2,200 in '07.

    I've been looking around for a Roubaix because of its geometry. I was building up a Jamis Xenith Pro racing bike but have decided the geometry doesn't fit me the way I would like and will sell off that frame. I can transfer the components, including great wheelset, compact double crankset, etc., onto the Roubaix frame if I buy it.

    Ideas on good Roubaix price?

    Last year Specialized was charging $1200 (or so... can't remember...but it's within $100) for a frame replacement in the Roubaix line. This came with a warranty. I'd probably start at $750 and see how the seller reacts.
    Oh I used to be disgusted and now I try to be amused. But since their wings have got rusted, you know, the angels wanna wear my red shoes. But when they told me 'bout their side of the bargain, that's when I knew that I could not refuse. And I won't get any older, now the angels wanna wear my red shoes.

    FWIW, I paid $650 for an 06 Roubaix Pro frame, fork and headset on Ebay a few months ago, used but in excellent shape. $700-750 for a new 07 Comp is probably about right.

    Thanks, BSVeVan & Luv@cruz

    I'll offer between $750-$800. Maybe post again if I get it (excitement & all that).

    Got the frameset for $590 plus $20 shipping. Not bad! I'll let you know what it looks like when it arrives.

    Now I just need to sell this the new '05 Jamis Xenith Pro frameset that I was building up!

    Anybody have any worries buying a used cf bike online, not knowing its history with regards to frame integrity or previous level of stress? (3 steel bikes here and with some perhaps needless apprehensions.)

    I bought mine from a fairly well-known brick-and-mortar shop in CA, they sold it new and took it on trade from a customer who bought another frame from them. They vouched for its condition, and it indeed didn't have a mark on it. Under my conditions, I feel pretty confident.

    If I DO encounter any trouble, this forum will hear it first....
