    How much is this worth?

    2010 Pivot Mach 5 Frame
    Shimano XT Front Mech
    Sram X9 Rear Mech 9 Speed
    Sram X0 Shifters 9 Speed
    Avid Elixer CR Brakes
    One set of Mavic tubless ready wheels and a set of WTB base model wheels.


    What do you think would be a good price to pay for this?

    Thanks

    Are you buying or selling? Whats the asking price?

    Condition is everything, so without photos it's hard to give an accurate estimate. It would also help to know the exact model of the Mavic wheelset. Does the frame have the "lunchbox" kit with King headset and carbon dw-link?

    I know that I'd have a hard time selling my '10 Mach5 with lunchbox kit for $500 locally, but if you look on ebay, they seem to be going for over $700 consistently.

    Is it a complete bike and you've listed just the major components, or is it in pieces with no saddle, seatpost, bars, etc?

    NCF, that $500-700 you are estimating is frame only, right? To me the frame + components listed above are worth way more than $700 on CL, Ebay, whatever.

    Sounds like a solid deal to me.

    Totally agree. Now get some tubeless ready tires for the Mavics.

    Specialized 2Bliss, Bontrager TLR, Geax TNT, WTB TCS, Maxxis LUST all will work like magic. You can also use, but don't require, an actual UST tire. The other tires I mentioned are lighter than full UST.

    Yep, I just got a reply. He's going to come down to where I live to do a road bike race/ride. (im doing it too)

    He said its coming full, ready to ride including cranks, cassettes, chains etc.

    So does that seem pretty good?

    Sram X9 Rear Mech 9 Speed
    Sram X0 Shifters 9 Speed

    One set of Mavic tubless ready wheels and a set of WTB base model wheels.

    yes that is a solid build especially at 850 for a complete bike. I would be all over that.
