Welcome.
This will most likely get moved to the valuation forum.
The "signed" by cipo' is just a marketing tie in, I was hoping for a Sharpie written signature.
The bike is a bit young for classic and vintage, more intriguing used at this point.
Unfortunately it has lead an experienced life with a mix of middle value components.
There might be some interest right now as I have seen a few web pages recently featuring him, I would have to look it up but what near 10 years for his last win?

It's ok if it's moved in the right place, I've already apologised in the 1st post so, I don't understand what do you mean by "sharpie" signature, I think that one it's a cool signature and it's so well painted, by the way. I bet the bike was built in early '90, so I think it's a classic one. Yes, it belonged to a rider as you can see under the frame but that it's not a big deal if there are a few centimeters of missing paint under the frame and yes, like 9-10 years, but the bike it's still my precious haha so, if you find anything, please let me know, kind regards!

By a Sharpie signature, I meant where Cipo' himself had taken a permanent marker and signed the frame.

The bottom bracket might give many pause as often the bottom bracket cups can get frozen into the frame with corrosion.

"Sharpie signature" means that Cippolini signed the bike at an event or something, not just a decal that was printed and put under the clear.

Because you asked about your bike's value, I'm going to move this thread to our Appraisals section.

Cool bike.

Mario Cippollini rode for Team Saeco from 1996-2001. Cannondale was a sponsor for this team, so your bike would probably be from this era. I don't follow this brand of bikes closely but I would think a value of $600, maybe up to $800 depending on your market. Nice looking bike, I haven't seen that frame before, so maybe you could get more from a Cannondale collector/enthusiast.

ITs really just a mixed component CAD3 bike, I was thinking more in the 400 range.

Might be worth more parted out --- I cant imagine it would have shipped out with Mirage components, and the FSA crank looks like something more modern ---

That said -- Its awesome, as there are likely a lot of Cipo fans out there , and the Red, White, blue theme is neat (Although Cipo is ITalian ?)

At one time , someone could've bought this bike as a bare frame and built it with a Mirage/Scirocco build kit -- which makes a lot of sense for a budget racer when you have to deal with parts breakage and other things --- I know locally a couple of shops in my area would strip new bikes to build up framesets at different price points ---- My first DeBernardi had a Veloce build kit taken from a new Giant carbon fiber bike --- the shop owner likely made a tad more money that way, but the end result was he got a somewhat broke college student on a nice bike for cheap (somewhat cheap)

Yes, this is what i was thinking before posting here: 1. I haven't found any bike like this on markets and 2. maybe there are some "cipo" fans out there who would ride this beauty! Thank you!

Locating that enthusiastic buyer is the trick.
If you wish to maximize value removing the parts would be the way to go.
By doing so you will confirm that the bottom bracket or seat post is not stuck
