Maybe like 400-450 for the older one, mostly for the components. Maybe $650-750 for the newer one. Depends on location etc

Lousy photos = low valuations. Work on that skill.
Include model name and specs too when available.

Not Classic, Not Vintage......Yet! But like every bike, the parts are worth more separately than when all together on a bike. Don

Depreciation is going to happen, like paying taxes. Unless you are in a warm climate now is not the time to sell these locally and hanging on to them will not increase the value but I know what you mean. I have some bikes that I won't sell because they would go dirt cheap. I would rather keep them to ride and enjoy.

No, bikes drop a lot FASTER than cars, even if never ridden. If you want a bike that holds its value, get a nice vintage one about 30 years old.

Why not buy a used modern bike. Something 5, 10 years old I don't get your reasoning at all. 30 year old bikes have already dropped, depreciated.

People still want those OCLV Carbon bikes no matter what the anti carbon crowd say.

Is this some sort of investment, or are you going to ride it?

You are correct. There are people who inexplicably want an older carbon bike that could catastrophically fail on it's next ride if there's some undetected scratch, nick or flaw.

wrk101 isn't the OP. He's responding with a reality, and a suggestion that reflects his personal preferences for older bicycles. I don't understand your response to him, especially given that this is a sub-forum of C&V.

I sold my 04 5900 OCLV for $550 with full dura ace, i would expect the newer Madone might be a $1000 bike. Buyers in that price range might nit pick it for being 10'speed though

I saying if you buy a good 30 year old bike, then pretty much all of its depreciation has already been taken. If you buy a 5 year old bike, you can avoid a lot of depreciation, but not all of it. If you buy new, then expect to take a big hit depreciation wise. In my experience, the depreciation on new bikes is a steeper curve than a new car.


Personally I would not buy a bike based on its upcoming depreciation. I'd make my choice based on what I like, and get the value out of it by riding it.

I was hoping for more. At "those" prices they will stay with me for a while. But thank you for your input. Bikes sure drop in value...as much as cars.

I think thats the translation.

I would not be surprised if the Madone went for $800-$1000
