How much would my bike be worth?

I have a Team Degani Bike which is basically brand new.
It's full carbon including seat post and handle bars.
Has a sram force groupset and Mavic wheels.
How much would I be able to sell this for?

There's Team Degani relevant information in this thread here:
http://www.bicycles.net.au/forums/vi...32874&p=640773

Apparently the place closed shop and auctioned everything off a few years ago, and the bikes went out very cheap. Should be able to get your money out of it, though I'm always skeptical when someone buys a high end bike, and then asks what the value is, sounds more like the person used a five finger discount and wants to know what the loot is worth (but that's just coming from my cynical side).

Thanks, ive had a hard time finding info on the bike. All i know is the place when into liquidation and the bikes went cheap.
I bought it fairly cheap and have been thinking about selling becuase i know its worth more than i payed. I could buy another bike and pay off some debts with the money

Ofcourse its not stolen. I just happen to know a guy at work who wanted to sell it and upgrade.
I was looking in the price range and recognised a bargain, but now that ive realised how much its actually worth im considering selling it.

Sounds like the guy at work passed along a good deal to you rather than trying to profit off you.

The prices those bikes apparently went for was ridiculously cheap considering the components, so heck, if you can sell it, buy a cheaper bike that works just as well for you, and put that extra money to good use, go for it! I've done likewise with other hobbies.

It's worth what someone else is willing to pay , at auction that's the highest bidder.

condition is hidden . damage may have been the previous owner's little secret ..

Good Luck.. ~o)

pretty easy to order a bunch of Carbon Frames and forks
and have what ever name you want painted on it,
by the Chinese company that you Go through.

someone posted here a year ago about buying an un logo'd
Chinese, CF frame and fork for a few hundered $ ..
