    Hey kids,
    I've got a few questions for you. I'm selling my 05 Steamroller, probably on Craigslist. HereNT is helping me but I would really like some imput from you guys. Okay, I'm ready to move back to Mpls. I hate it here in NASCAR central Indiana, but I'm broke. SO, that's the reason.
    How can I show you guys pics of it on BF. I've got pictures that I've sent to myself via e-mail, but I have no idea how to put them on BF for you guys to see. Here's some basic info....
    05 'Roller, 62cm, 2months old
    Campy bb, same age
    Sugino 75 crankset
    Velocity Deep v's used, white, laced to Surly hubs with DT spokes
    New Nitto drops
    Conti Gatorskins.
    Of course that's not everything, but I just kinda wanted some ideas about how much I should sell it for.
    Oh, it also has a Cinelli Vai stem as well. Thanks.
    Drew
    P.s I put less than 30miles on the complete frame since it was built up.

    here's the thread on how to post pics http://www.bikeforums.net/showthread.php?t=86968
    keep in mind though, that it's against forum rules to post stuff for sale anywhere but in the 'for sale' thread' http://www.bikeforums.net/sale/ and you have to have a paid membership to do that.

    It's not for sale yet - he got a lot of the parts when he was working in a bike shop, and doesn't know what a good asking price would be, BEFORE he puts it up for sale. Personally, I have no idea what it would be worth, and suggested he ask so that he didn't let it go for too little.

    I've got a copy of the pics, I'll get them up in a few.

    Alright, here's some pics of the bike in question... Anyone with a bike parts calculator that can figure out what's a good asking price for a build like this?

    yes, but they're not new, so $600 (plus $200 ebay hipster tax if you're so inclined)


    by the way why are you running JIS tapered cranks on an ISO BB?

    Mid $600s seems like a good price for all parties involved.

    Maybe start at $700?

    25 miles east of Indianapolis... I never knew there were fixed gears in those parts. On the other hand, in the Department of Fixed Gears Everywhere, my step-father who is in his 50's is making an 80's Trek conversion that puts my Peugeot I coverted a few years ago to shame.

    I bring this up because I grew up 25 miles or so east of Indianapolis.

    If you are still there around the end of the year, let me know, Central IN would actually be a great place to ride, flat as a table.

    Well, actually, the bike and I were acquired in Mpls. Indy is so spread out. Anyways, thanks for the ideas. And Herent, I'll send you some outdoor pics later on today. My sister bought me a twelve pack of Blue Moon so I got drunk and forgot about taking pictures. Yes, I'm so bored here I had to get hammered. No offense to chronic drinkers, mind you.
    But seriously, thanks for the info. Some much cooler pics will be coming for your comments. All the components, except for the wheelset, are less than two months old. And less than 50miles altogether.
    Dolface, thanks for the heads up.
    Drew
    P.S.
    Where did you grow up?
    I'm in McCordsville. This town probably wasn't even built up when you were here. I'm in some newly developed subdivision out in the middle of nowhere, well somewhere.

    I don't know, man. I was like, get this, get that. Sugino 75's, Campy bb. Sounded like a good idea at the time. Mistakes happen. Don't shun me from the group just yet........

    Hey, I spent my formative years in Greenfield. I go to school though in DC. My plan is to move back for the summer after college, just for those 3 months, then leave... I think it would be more than bearable to live in downtown Indy and exist with no car. I've done that here for a while now and while it wouldn't be as convenient, it would totally doable.

    So,
    I think I've come to somewhat of a conclusion. Someone above suggested around $700. Me's thinking that's okay? Anyone else disagree, or agree for that matter?

    I'm way too impatient to sell it in parts. I'd hate to look at a bike like that as it starts to seperate from itself, know what I mean? I just want to get it over and done with so I can move back home.

    yea ceya is right about parting it out..
    otherwise

    650-700 sounds good.
    But start at 700 if you throw it on CL..
    I put one of my bikes up for 650 and some guy came at me with a offer of 250.00 so watch out.
