how much is my bike worth?

Hello, I want to sell one of my road bikes on craigslist since I built one and I don't really need the other one anymore. Could you guys help me gauge a price?

Its a cannondale 700r frame, CAAD5. 9 speed setup.

105 sti shifters

ultegra fd and rd

mavic cxp wheels

dura ace 7700 crank bb and chain

selle san marco thoork gel flow saddle

some kind of seat post, probably cannondale

cannondale stem

deda elementi handlebars

cannondale slice fork

cane creek headset

some kind of shimano cassette

shimano slr brakes

and yeah...that's about all i can think of for now.

aesthetically. There are a few scratches here and there and one near the bottom bracket. Don't know how it happened. And a tiny little ding on the top tube.

How much you think I can get for it?

You will have to take into consideration how much wear the components show, overall condition of the bike, and how many other bikes like yours are listed. The most important factor is how badly do you want to sell the bike. People go to craigslist for bargains!

Look on ebay and see what similar bikes are selling for.

Bikes do not hold their value well. I rebuild and refurbish a lot of bikes (though most of them are not in the category of yours!) My usual method of pricing is to take half the MSRP, and then adjust up or down according to the condition of the bike.
Checking to see what similar bikes are selling for is a good idea, I always use Craigslist.

Your bike is worth whatever you can get someone to pay you for it.

No more, no less.
