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)

How much did you buy your Madison for? I think that my LBS sells them for $700 (which seems pricey to me, but I haven't checked online.)

With that price in mind, I would think you could sell it ~600. You do have a wheelset on there worth more than the stock wheelset.

By the way, what do you think of the B43s? I'm very interested in them. (I'm currently running DP18, which I like, but I'm considering buying a new backwheel to lose the machined wall.) Is the heaviness really as bad as it sounds (at ~770 grams)?

Actually, when it comes to their standard Track Hub, they are...just rebranded.

my lbs sells my bike for 650, but i got it on sale, i like b43's even if their alot heavier, i abuse them like crazy, and its still true. unless u really wanna keep a light bike, i would go for some

i would say list 6-625, expect 550, maybe 600.

someone here in sacto apparently just sold their leader 721 frameset for 500... but that's pretty unrealistic. (edit, looks like that buyer figured out he was crazy and backed out lol)

I wouldnt pay much for it personally, but I'd guess the market rate would be about 400-500 depending on condition.

I would think some one would pay as much as a new one. So 400 low end 500 high end. I personally would not pay more for those upgrades because I do not really care for them. So if I was in the market for a used madison I would pay 300 low end for this 400 hi end. You only need one buyer to make a sale. If you take time to sell it and do not take the first offer you will prob get a fair amount.

i remember maddys used to go for like 400 new. i'd pay less than that for a used one. your aftermarket mods are worth nothing to me.

Madisons are $499 @ Performance NEW (without discounts). You can easily get it discounted at least 15%. So you can get a NEW one for around $425. I wouldn't buy it for more than $300 since it is used.

But there are a lot of stupid people out there, and since fixies are so in right now, you should be able to get at least $450.
