Focus TD-400 Touring bike, 52CM Frame









Pristine frame, a few tiny scratches on the underside of the down tube. Suntour mountech components, sugino GP cranks, broken-in Ideale leather saddle, 21 speeds, cantilever brakes. It's setup for touring all the way. So ladies and gents, what should I insure it for?

$400? Maybe more.

Depends on how quickly you would try replacing it.

That's amazing! Most of that value most be the ideale leather seat, did I mention it's broken in? Thought I suppose that 900 Tange tubing is kind of special too, I haven't seen too many bikes with it

Tange 900 is kind of average, I have had several bikes with it.

Touring bikes get sturdy ho-hum sounding tube sets.
