1997 Cannondale R2000

I've had this bike for a little while now, It's a 97' (not very vintage I know) Cannondale R2000 with a mid 90's Athena group.. The frame was made in their Bedford,PA plant and is a reallly stiff snappy ride, I think I may recall this being called a criterium frame, but i'm not sure.. Anyway, built up right this thing could be super light I'm sure. I bought the frame and fork for 200$ which was I bit steep but its definitely a nice ride. Anyone have any ideas of value in her current state?

It looks like a large frame, 63cm perhaps? That could limit the potential buyers. Are you selling on CL or ebay? I bought a Cannondale frame on ebay because I wanted one and it was where I could find it easily in my size. I also may have paid a bit much for it but I love it.

My point is, if you want maximum $$$ and don't mind the effort part it out. Cdale frames are popular. In good shape you should do well but has to go on the bay. I don't know the value of the group but IMHO you will get more if you part out the whole deal. (And I want those Athena bits)

Oh yeah, sorry, Its a 62cm. I'd most likely be selling on CL, and parting out might be a little difficult for me having no access to a shop currently, but is certainly something I'd consider.
