ti road bike appraisal

what do you guys think of this bike? it's a little big for me (usually ride a 54-55) and i already have an older litespeed but seems like a good deal and i could use some of those parts. also what do you think the frame would sell for if i decided to steal some of the parts from it and re sell the frameset? thanks

Ha! If it's $600 complete, don't even think twice about it. Go get it.

While ti has somewhat fallen out of fashion compared to carbon, it still offers an incredible ride and value. Heck, $600 for the frame alone would be a good price.

That's a steal, just like it says in the ad. Especially if it's really full Dura Ace. The wheelset alone is worth $300, and you could probably get at least $400-500 for the frame/fork/headset. Get it now!

Yeah, I see a margin of at least $300 on that.

Interestingly, McMahon offer bikes with a Ti for as well.

Should be in your car driving right now, assuming it is within your budget.

Call or email the seller and offer more to keep the seller interested, based on seeing the bike. Good luck!
