    Not quite. What you can sell it for determines its worth.

    You need to spend more time in the C&V apprasail threads where most of them open with...

    "I just bought this XXXXXXX what is it worth?"

    Why are you asking how much YOUR bike is worth? Did you spend money on it? How could you not know its worth? Is it yours or did you steal it and trying to off load? This is shadier than a solar eclipse!

    Slow your roll homie. It's upgrade season, seems pretty plausible to me that a rider with a 4 year old bike might want to know what kind of budget he's working with (after selling/trading in his old bike) for a shiny new toy.

    The best answer is looking at CL and ebay. Opinions here don't matter but what people are buying and selling for do. Maybe the OP did already and doesn't like the answers. But it's tough spending big dollars on a bike and seeing it go for 30 - 40% of what you paid three years later
    You're just trying to start an argument to show how smart you are.

    I just always have people asking me how much it's worth, and I'm never quite sure since I basically inherited it. Frame doesn't have a scratch on it and it's only been ridden about 1000mi.

    I'd say $3000 since you have Campy Record, assuming a full Campy gruppo (shifters, brakes, wheels, crank, derailluers, bottom bracket, maybe pedals and seatpost), and in the right market.
    Bikes use brakes to stop.

    If your bike has breaks, don't ride it.

    About 1/3 of what you have in it. Bikes depreciate like used Christmas trees.

    That is why none of my 5 bikes (even the old ones) are for sale. They are worth more to me than what I can get for them.
    When I ride my destination is the ride itself. So I always get to where I am going.

    It's worth $250 and is obviously the wrong size for you. I'll do you a favor and take it off your hands.

    Seatpost is shaped to where the only one you can use is Trek's, pedals are Shimano SPD. Everything else is Campagnolo.

    Haha it is actually just a little big for me!

    FWIW, MSRP on that bike with full DuraAce was around $6k, tack on $500 for the price difference to record, and you're at $6500 for the bike 4 years ago. http://www.bikepedia.com/QuickBike/B...e#.UFxlnEJN5R0

    Depends on how you're looking to sell it, but I would imagine you could get $2.5k on craigslist if you're patient, or possibly more than $3k on ebay if you make the ad appealing and take a lot of pictures.

    That being said, the madone frame was just updated in a way that will make it very obvious to those that must have the latest and greatest that this is an older frame (rear brake has been moved to the chainstays)- which will bring the value down.

    Bikes up at the tip top of the market depreciate like cars at the top of the market- precipitously. The manufacturers are keen on changing the colors or the design just enough that it's obvious what year your bike is, and to the fickle, gear obsessed cyclist, that just won't work. Flip that on its head though, and you'll find a floor to the value as well. This bike, if the frame stays solid, will never depreciate below ~$1500 because of what it is.

    It is plausible, but highly improbable, homie. If you have the means to buy a Madone with a full Campagnolo Record or any bike that is not exactly entry level, you will have an idea of its worth. Someone opting for a Campy gruppo on their bike is usually indicative of a cyclist who does not settle for what is on the showroom floor. They either put the bike together or had an LBS put it together for them. Someone like that WILL know what their bike is worth. And as evidenced by the OPs reply below, he had no hand in its purchase. No longer shady, but answers the question why he does not know its value/worth.

    Nice hand-me-down! Enjoy the bike and know that it is worth a lot. Its value will be determined by how much riding you do on it

    If you are selling, you really won't get any where near the original MSRP. People spending coin on high end bikes will not really buy used unless it is a real bargain. Then you have to contend with the fear of carbon asplodes-aphobia buyers.

    Not worth a dime to me, because I prefer to ride full fendered bikes with IGH and coaster brakes. I'd offer $10 just to help out a bicycling comrade and I'm a nice guy.

    Good luck finding someone who does value such bikes and wants to shell out whatever the OP thinks is right.

    I know a couple folks with similar bikes and they didn't pay anything near MSRP when they bought them new. I suspect the MSRPs on Madones may be inflated to give dealers more room to 'cut deals.'

    How much room do you think they are allowed?

    So he explained himself and he's good to go. Let's say he hadn't made that post and just dropped off the op and moved on like so many newbies do? What would you have done about it? Oh yeah, NOTHING. I don't see what's even to be gained by calling someone a thief unless THEY explain to YOU about why it is they have this bike. I'll never understand the narcissism that causes a person to insert themselves into scenarios that have nothing to do with them.

    Well no crap, got a better idea of figuring out what it cost new? It's a hard figure. It's an upper limit for sure, but it's a hard dollar amount to work from.

    Take it to a Bike shop and put it on consignment.. they will sell it and take a % for the effort.
    the LBS, will know local market .. some places are higher than others
    depending on the relative ridership and average wealth of the citizens.

    No way. The 2013 goes for $6,600 with Ultegra Di2. A four year old bike with CR is what others say - 1/3rd of the original price. Nobody will pay half price for a 4 year old bike
