Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Custom Bike Appraisals?

Hi everyone. I'm new here so forgive me if this is in the wrong place. I acquired a custom New Belgium Brewing Company cruiser a while back and I am struggling to figure out its value. Does anyone know who can give me a good estimate of its value?

Is it the same custom cruiser that's made for every beer company/clothing company/whatever? If so, I can't imagine that it's worth a ton. See if a bar close by wants to buy it.

I saw the Rolling Rock version of that bike. I figure it's worth about a hundred bucks, probably more if you peel the stickers off.

It's because they are. I bet they'd make a hell of a paperweight though.

Why do I keep replying in this thread?

Yes, it is the same one that the brewery makes each year. I know its pry not worth a ton of money, but I have seen some of the newer editions going upwards of $800. Thing is, is that I have never seen another one that's the same year as mine so I have nothing to go off of. Another hard thing is that Im not planning on selling it, so that takes away the option of putting it on ebay with a reserve or something like that.
