Appraisal please on my Serotta

I have a bike that I'm about to put up for sale and would like the experts to weigh in on valuation. Serotta Colorado TG, Shimano Dura Ace 7700 9 speed complete down to the hubs, Mavic CXP22 32 hole rims. Bike has been ridden less than 2000 miles and is in excellent condition for its age. Pictures to follow but does anybody have any initial thoughts on a fair price? Thanks in advance.

Without pictures it is hard to give an appraisal. You will need to make 9 more good posts in order to post up your pictures. However, a good workaround is to attempt to post your pics and then us know that you did this. Then we can look at your Gallery and post them for you.

Other things that can affect a bikes value:

1. Location
2. Willingness to ship
3. Size of frame
4. Component quality level.
5. Cleanliness

Hello and welcome! The older steel bike market has flattened over the past few years but Serotta has a solid fan base and still commands a little bit of a premium over many other quality steel brands. I don’t follow Serotta that closely but in general you’ll find the frame and fork will be more marketable than the older parts. Dura Ace 9 speed, as good as it is, just doesn’t command much attention these days. I am going to provide a wild, lightly educated guess of around $700-$800 for the whole bike, of course depending on condition and maybe $500-600 for frame/fork alone.

if you search at the classified section at Paceline https://forums.thepaceline.net/forumdisplay.php?f=6 you might get a better idea on pricing. BITD, that was a Serotta forum and there is still a lot of buying and selling of Serottas there.
