how much is a bianchi pista concept with carbon fork worth?

it is all white with bianchi logo in celeste green. i saw a couple of these go over 1150 on ebay for just the frame and this color is really growing on me.

No.

That frame and fork retailed for $650 brand new back in 2005.

i stopped by my lbs and they said $750 + shipping/tax back in the day. and anything around 900 is a pretty good deal.
they have one in the store for $1100+ tax


I saw one here in the local ads for $950 so I think I will jump on that. it includes the carbon fork and frame, built up once but not a single scratch on it. do yall think that is an okay deal?

No.

You want us to say yes, but it's not a good deal. It's highly overpriced.

Do you intend to race? If so, there are much better values out there.

If you want everyone to say yes, and you're convinced you want one, then pay whatever you're willing to pay for one.

i think 4-600 is a more realistic price range.

Or, if you need a 57cm, and don't mind used, for $50 more, you can get this:

Another white 53cm was posted on Craigslist for $650. Its brand new, but it doesn't come with a fork.

Don't I know it. I'm the one trying to sell it.
The frame's not "damaged", it's battle-worn and bad-ass
Anyway, I raced on it for the better part of season this way with no catastrophic failures, apart from my race results
