Photos/group would help. Generally ti depreciates FAST (which makes no sense to me since so much of the attraction is that it always looks about the same and lasts for so long). It's also typically VERY hard to sell a high dollar bike without using either ebay or a well established classified forum. Tossing a bike up on CL with "make offers" isn't going to work well.

I agree, but I'm not the seller - hope these pics help. Headset is included. He's offering the stem and post as well, pantographed ti serotta stem and A Classic Ti post, but I'm trying to just get an idea of the frame value. Appreciate the replies.

Just replied to the last post with some. Post and stem are optional but he's trying to sell those as well. Both Ti.

great looking bike. I would say 300-400 maybe. I just picked up a Merckx EX Ti complete bike for 700.00 so with the parts that 's about what you would pay for your complete bike IF you could get that frame and fork for around 300.00. It is true...Titanium bikes just don't fetch the big dollars as do steel or carbon bikes. Aluminum is also a very low resalse bike, although, if you know what to look for, you can get a great riding very light aluminum bike that will last a long time for a fraction of the price of anything else.

thoughts?

Just discovered he has it on Ebay as well. Bids are up to 600, and I don't see any of that model that have fetched less than 750 or so. Maybe people are just paying a premium there. That's a great price for what you got, I would think.

Joe's estimate is completely bonkers level wrong IMO, as is his reasoning. A Ti Merckx, litespeed built, from the 90s isn't worth nearly as much as an 06'-07' Serotta Legend.

What someone pays for something in an isolated sale doesn't determine what something is typically worth...$700 is on the low side, but about right for a Litespeed built ti merckx with tier two parts on Craigslist.

I would estimate the value on a 7 year old Ti Serotta frame on ebay to be around the 1000 mark, give or take...maybe 2/3rds of that on Craigslist. I'm not sure what the stem and post are, so am not considering them. They look nice...probably ti. They would each add about $100 in value.

I sold a 2002 Serotta Legend with a nice parts mix complete for around 1500ish...and that seems pretty standard for their value. Adjust somewhat up for the newer model year, but once it's over 5 years old, the age difference is less relevant. I would have no problem dropping $800 on that frame...and I think the Legends are among the nicest ti bikes I've seen.

Thanks to all - picked it up for 1000, including a dura ace headset, and it's pretty close to mint. Now what wheels ....

A clean used Litespeed Titanium frame from around 2002-2004 recently sold in northern San Diego for just under $400. I know because I thought long seriously about buying it, but I decided to get a much less expensive Schwinn Paramount Series 7 PDG steel frame instead. I would think a Serotta Ti frame would be worth at least a couple hundred more than a Litespeed, maybe even double what a Litespeed frame in similar shape would command.

Great! Can't wait to see the build...I really like ti Serottas. As far as the wheels, it really depends on where and how you want to ride.
