1987 Cannondale ST600 ?

Next to go: Nice older 18-speed Cannondale touring bike with Deore derailleurs, Shimano 600 brakes, BioPace chainrings. Sun Mistral M17L aluminum alloy wheel set.

Any interest in these older touring bikes ?

Yes, $200 would be a good place to start. These are nice frames, easy to upgrade the components. The one I had came with 27" wheels but a simple swap to 700 and longer reach brakes.

Beautiful bike in GREAT SHAPE !!!!!

As above have said....market is " soft" right now.

I would not price it below 200.00....but if it did not sell during the summer......I would drop the price to 165.00

It all depends how motivated you are to sell....

Good Luck !!!

I wouldn't sell the bike under 250$.
The market is soft, but still working. And touring bikes are selling.
I sold a touring Passage for 290$ two weeks ago (plus shipping).

I would guess that this is a poor time of year to sell bikes in Ontario, so if possible I'd wait until spring, and then I'd ask for more -- starting at the $350-$400 USD range. This looks almost unused, and the parts alone are worth a few hundred (sadly it might be the case that parting it out will yield maximum value). I know if i saw this for the limbo-low suggestions of sub $200 and it was in my area I'd buy it just for the parts.

I am assuming "plus shipping" means not local sale. If you have the time and skill to carefully pack a bike, then on line sale via fleece bay is a good option. Note, you will not be paid for the time to pack, and offering to take it to a bike shop and having them pack at buyer's expense is usually a non-starter unless it is something special.

My local bike market is so depressed that selling on line can mean double to triple the $$, and if it is something desirable, it can be 5X.

To many of us that have sold bikes for years, it's very important to recalibrate our valuations. I easily locally sold touring Cannonades like this one for $450 +/-. Those days are long gone. So prices are down sharply, and consumable prices are up sharply. So it's a HUGE squeeze now.

126 spacing and 27in wheels? just makes life a bit harder. Currently starring at 1991 ST600 25in(63.5). I bought it the summer before covid in time capsule condition for $250 + a 40min drive and a 5 dollar bridge toll. I would have gone up to $300 once I saw it IRL. The only original parts I haven't worn out or replaced due to irritation are the crank, handlebars and rear break. I love the q-factor on the triple but uugh 50-40-x is tall for a commuter/touring rig.
