    What to pay for 2000 Gunnar Crosshairs

    What is a fair price to pay for this bike equipped with Shimano 105 der. & cranks, Deore LX V brakes, Cosmos wheels, 853 steel frame. It looks almost brand new. Thanks

    I'd suggest one of the best ways of establishing a price would be to use the Completed Items search on ebay. You might not be able to find the exact model, but you should be able to get a feel for depreciation. I did manage to buy a *really* nice 7005 bike with a Campag powertrain for about 200 - about four years old, but only raced for one season and almost showroom condition. But I think I was lucky - the owner was extremely honest and mentioned some almost un-noticeable headset centering which I think put some bidders off.

    I just sold my 2000 Crosshairs a little over a month ago. It had a fairly similar spec (Tiagra shifters, 105 RD, FD, and crank, campagnolo rims with ultegra hubs). The paint was in decent, but not great shape. I ended up getting $600 for it.

    Hope that helps.

    I'm amazed at how cheap some Waterford and Gunnars go for used. They really are a best buy bargain in used bikes.
    1999 Waterford RSE-11, 1995 Waterford 1200, 1989 Specialized Rockhopper Comp
    1989 Raleigh Technium, 1989 Schwinn Traveler, 1986 Specialized Rockhopper
    1984 Specialized Stumpjumper, 1986 Specialized Stumpjumper and just way too many projects to list.

    waterford bikes are custom so they depreciate a lot due to the limited market. I would also question why some one was selling a custom steel bike.

    I was really surprised at how cheap I got it for in the first place. I think I paid like $565 originally.
