info on a surly.

I bought this surly from a homeless gentleman who had it hanging from his shopping cart. I gave him $20 for it. How much do you guys think it's worth just as it is? Everything works good on it. What size of wheels did came on this bike? Also where is a good place to buy wheel set for it?

you dont have a pic of the full bike. No idea what model it is.

Nice crankset and rear derailleur.

Strong work ripping off a homeless man.

There are s of great places to get wheels both local and off he internet. Its pointless to commend anything as you dont mention what you want in a wheelset...what type or cost range.
I assume thats for 700c since its caliper brakes...


Worth-
as is before knowing where you got it?...$150.
Parted out? $250.
After finding out you bought it off a homeless guy for $20?... $15.

Ultegra and 105 derailleurs, Sugino touring crankset, Velo Orange stem, Nitto randonneur handlebar... Someone carefully selected the components they wanted and built up this bike. That's too nice a bike for a homeless guy to innocently "find". I'd strongly suspect the bike is stolen, and perhaps the wheels got separated from the bike.

If this bike came into my possession, the first thing I'd do is try to find out if it's stolen, and if so, how to reunite it with its rightful owner.

I would be giving that bike to the police so I don't get charged with possession of stolen property or punched in the head when the original owner sees me trying to resell his/her bike.

I agree mostly with everyone else. I would not "hand it over to the police" but definitely try to find the original owner. Make a craigslist post, facebook post, see if there is a serial number database in your area, etc. Obviously don't show pics, just a description of the frame, and let them tell you what components are on it if they don't know the serial number. It would be awesome if you found out it was stolen and returned it to its rightful owner. Especially since you only have twenty bucks in it.

I think you guys are right, I'm going to post an ad on cl and try to find the owner instead of going straight to the police. I'll see how that works first.
