    khs aero track roadshow

    So I have a 58cm c-t-c (~64 c-t-t) KHS aero track frame---the aluminum one with the downward sloping top tube and the teardrop shaped down tube. I bought it NOS about a year ago and have ridden it very little, probably 150 miles, tops. I took off all the decals except the big "KHS" logo on the down tube, which I wrapped in electrical tape. It's been treated well, never crashed. The paint is in good shape, aside from a handful of odd little nicks along the fork. Now, let's say, hypothetically, that I want to sell it. How much do those of you with the appropriate price-estimating expertise think I might be able to get for it?

    Here are some photos. As I was taking them, I noticed a pair of little nicks in the paint on the top tube. I tried to photograph them, but they wouldn't show up.

    huh, i've only seen that frame in steel. I would bet you could get at least $400 for the frame/fork if you put it up for sale on velospace or threw it up on ebay. Then sell all the other parts separately, and make more money this way.

    Looks like a really comfortable ride.

    I'm not trying to use bfssfg to sell the frame; I'm just wondering about its value. If I were to put it up on ebay and only get like $100 for it, it wouldn't be worth it to me to sell it. So I wanted to see what others might think the frame is worth. I apologize if I gave the impression that I was trying to use the forum as my own mail order site.

    As for comfort, I find it pretty rideable, actually, but I've got long arms. I wouldn't want to be on it for hours and hours at a time, but for five or ten mile rides in the city, it's fine for me.
