    What's a good price for this?

    Here's an add I'm running at my local bike board--and I
    wanted to ask folks what you think a good price is?

    Soma Double Cross--

    Pics are here:

    54 cm seat tube (center of bottom bracket to top).
    See SOMA's website for the rest of their geometry

    Blue frame. Black Triple-T stem.

    I bought this bike in 2005 and have taken good care
    of it since. The only issue was that the paint job
    on the lugged fork crown was spotty from the factory
    so I dabbed a little bit of automotive touch-up paint
    on it--near perfect match.

    Shimano Deore 27 spd drive-train with Truvativ crank arm.

    Mavic rims laced to Shimano Deore hubs with 36 spokes.

    Reynolds 631 steel frame (welded not lugged) with a lugged
    steel fork.

    Nitto aluminum multiposition bars with Shimano index shifters and levers,
    SOMA thick-n-zesty tape.

    Steel no-name seatpost with a Terry Ti-Fly saddle with titanium rails--
    designed by Selle Italia--leather.

    MKS Sylvan pedals with MKS cages and EAI leather straps.

    I'll throw in a pair of Honjo Koken hammertone aluminum fenders that I
    haven't installed yet (have all the hardware) from Jitensha studio and an
    extra saddle--an old San Marco race saddle in case you want to cyclocross this
    steed.

    The saddle, fenders and bars alone are worth around $300--
    and the frame new goes for around $500.

    I've never crashed the bike and I'm the original owner--can show receipts.


    Hate to part with it but I figured someone on here might appreciate a good
    steel bike.
