I have been lusting over this frameset for over a decade because it is my unicorn. I could run it geared,SS, or fixed.

It fell into my lap a few weeks back and love it but I need to thin out the heard and my gravel bike will be better suited as a do it all.

I saw a frame in similar condition on eBay for $800 and I think that's insane. I know it's a desirable frame but we are getting close to custom built frames.

What do you guys think I could get for this in today's market?

​​​​​Edit: pedals and rear derailleur are different than in the pics.

Actual Ebay sales would indicate $400-$600.


Things you may want to review before listing....


Those aren't 6800 brakes but 6600SL.

Front hub doesn't look like any DT Swiss hub I know, branded or not.

Misaligned valve hole in rear wheel points to amateur build.


Not trying to be overly negative but those would definitely be red flags for me.

​​​​i appreciate the input. Most of the parts are second hand. I was going off memory from the model number of the brakes.

Good to know about the wheels. I was under the assumption that the hubs were same brand as the rims because of the previous owner selling them as DT Swiss wheels. I had it in the back of my mind they might be prebuilt from somewhere like Velomine with Formula hubs but was also thinking they were DT hubs as I've had unbranded hubs from them before and just thought it might be a cheap wheelset from them.

Do you think the issue with the rear wheels misaligned valve hole has to do with a radial non drive lacing?

Unfortunately, because many of the original parts have been changed the bike in my estimation will not bring anywhere near the current market value....eBay may bring you a larger share of the viewing market but even there "original" bikes are in the 400-500 range.
If you consider packing time and fees you might be better off selling on CL IMO 350 tops ...of course a part out will bring more but take more time/effort
Good luck, Ben

I agree. It may ride and function very well, but it's a mish-mash of parts and value will be less than an original build.

That's the problem with folks who score a deal and then part a bike out or use the parts for their own grail bike..you get this bike..still very nice, but it needs to be marketed differently...and selling price is less of a known.

I do apologize, I only just noticed your reply :\

But no, I think they just started at the wrong spoke hole or they accidentally flipped the rim and didn't notice or didn't care. It's not really a big deal but it looks sloppy.
Formula hubs are a fair bet though.

The components are a mess and would be cautionary to a buyer. Strip it and the frame and fork would probably sell for $300-$400 on ebay. Maybe include the stem and seatpost as they seem to be the only matching parts.
