Raleigh Technium Tri Lite

Picked one up at a goodwill. Red/ white/ black. Paint in pristine condition. I completely refurbished. Grease, tires, retaped bars. Paid $60, tires $55, tape $10. Everything else original. Too big for me to ride comfortably. Pretty bike but think I'm gonna sell. Any thoughts on it's worth? Thanx.

Well,.... now that's it's been refurbished with new tires it's in "like new" condition. The cheapest new decent road bike (internet mail order) is going for around $500. So........................ II wouldn't take less than $300. And, I'd start at around $375. Be good. Have fun.

Technium Trilite was a series of bicycles covering a fairly wide price range, so to offer valuations without photographs and knowing the specific model are just stabs in the dark.

I think you'll be hard pressed to get anything north of $250 for a Raleigh Technium. Probably more like $175-$200 if it is truly is clean and ready to ride.

I sold a Technium 420 in the middle of the "boom" this summer for $150. Lower-end Technium but it was very clean and ready to ride. Maaaaaybe could have held out for $175 but unlikely.

thanx, for the responses. I'll see what happens at $350. Nothing to lose except space in my shop.

I’m clearly not an expert on assessing the value of a particular bicycle but I’m pretty sure the there’s significant variability from one geographic market to another. I’m also sure that there’s seasonal variability too. Getting top dollar for a used bike during the Winter months in the upper Midwest would be a tough sell. I’m surprised that the OP didn’t mention their location and even more surprised that no one asked!

I love my old Raleigh Technium. It's an old pal. A total beater. My daily rider. Everything is for sale in my garage. But, it would take a lot to make me let this one go. Be good. Have fun.
