Waterford RS11 Value

Not sure if a '99 is necessarily a C&V bicycle but I'd love some input on what you think the approximate value of this bicycle is.

Waterford RS11 56cm road bike

Thanks for your time!

The price $600 as advertised on this one seems about right for the Denver market. Considering the time of year it's cold, snowing and the bike has sat for more than a month you could probably offer $500 and get it.

The RS-11 was Waterford's entry level "road-sport" geometry frameset, and used a special Reynolds 531 OS tubeset. In 1996, the RS-11 frameset sold for $800, so in 1999 it probably sold for a bit more.

A complete built up RS-11 as described in the CL ad is worth the $600 asking price IMHO.

I have an RS-22, and I think the geometry is darn near perfect for long, fast rides.

Looks like a deal to me. Seatpost and headset MSRP are around $250.00 alone.
