    Value of old parts

    I just replaced my bike gearing with a compact system (10 speed). My old parts were a combination of ultegra and dura-ace and an FSA carbon crank.

    Someone has asked me what I want for the rear derailer (dura-ace), STI shifters (ultegra), cassette (not sure what that was), and the FSA crank.

    The stuff is original - 2 years old - and had about 16,000 miles on them. I think the condition is good (for their age).

    I have no idea what the value could be. I'm not looking to make a bunch of money - I'd almost be willing to give the parts away to them (he's a friend), but I could use some extra bucks right now, so can anyone give me a rough idea of the value of each of the above?

    Based on completed Ebay -

    Approximate -

    DA Rear = $40
    STI = 80 - 150
    FSA = 100 - 150

    Good buddy discount = 50%

    Thanks. So the cassette at that number of miles isn't really worth much? And I forgot to include the front DA derailer (7700 model).

    $100 and a six-pack for a buddy, assuming the stuff really is in good shape.

    Cassette and FD = freebies. If you're hooking up a pal, make sure you never give him the ability to feel like you got him for any more than you should have. Used parts, unless super special, are just used parts.

    I don't sell anything to friends, unless they leave me no choice. Always Ebay or CL.

    Well, mine did. In fact, I recently put on a new chain - forget which one other than it was SRAM - which was more expensive than others I've used. The shop guy said it could be a problem if the cassette was worn though, because of the closer tolerances. But he said I would notice it right away if my cassette was worn too much. As it turned out, it worked just fine.

    Actually, some of the items would be for a friend of his - I know him too, but only a little.

    Like I said, normally I'd just let them have the stuff, but before I even said that, my friend said he would buy it so, since I could use a little money now, I might as well get something for it, but I'm certainly not looking to get anywhere near the max value it may be worth.
