Recreational Cyclocross and Gravelbiking This has to be the most physically intense sport ever invented. It's high speed bicycle racing on a short off road course or riding the off pavement rides on gravel like :The Dirty Kanza". We also have a dedicated Racing forum for the Cyclocross Hard Core Racers.

Can anyone give me a range of what this used bike is worth?

Not another one of these threads

Seriously though I want to get into Cyclocross and I want to get a used bike to save money. Anyone know what this might be worth. I am looking for only a ballpark number.

Assuming you are the right height etc for this, I'd offer no more than 950 ... obviously the current owner is WAYYYY too short for this frame, good God look at that setup *vomits in mouth*

3yr. old aluminum frame w/ Rival. I'd say ~900 is fair. I hope you're really tall.

I am 6'4". I think this would be the right size. My road bike is 61cm so I think this is correct.

If you are 6'4" you should be fine, I would still do a fit to be sure to remove the "I think" out of the equation. Large bikes are a tough sell used, so I would start off low with out pissing the guy off. Based on the setup in the pix the current own strikes as a bit of a dope so look over the bike thoroughly. You will need a new stem though, probably 110-130 with normal rise like a road stem. do the fit & good luck CX starts soon so get on it. :-0
