There is a blue book
The centric BlueBook for bicycles is in print and there is a website.
The problem is that there is limited information. The website hasn't been updated with information about bicycle models since the year 2000. The database is also limited to the dates of 1994 to 2000. Really, there should be an update! I am truly surprised that the publisher would let something like that go 9 years without finding someone to keep it updated.
I personally think that a bike shouldn't be treated as a car. It seems to me that they are way overpriced as with many things in the economy. It is my dream to have people only charge for the actual cost of material, not the development of technology. After all, that should be done at the university level, not the corporate. As it sits, the economy is being blamed for a lot of things, but this government is supposed to be a government of the people. Therefore, it is the people who make choices that effect the other people. So, paying lots of money for used bikes seem futile. What happened to the brotherhood of man? *See a need fill a need* *Love your neighbor* *Help the poor* because alone we can do nothing. We need each other to be strong enough to survive.
Peace, be well.
