Cannondale Bad Boy 9 worth?

Hi,

I am looking to buy a 2014 Cannondale Bad Boy 9 thats in great condition and with pedal upgrades.

The seller is asking for $300 and I wanted to know if anyone know if this was a good deal or not.

bicyclebluebook.com is not realistic with their values, they are a company that buys and sells bikes using the bluebook name, but it does help with a starting point. There is just no database that tracks used bicycle sales like there is for cars.

The bike had a $760 MSRP, you have to factor in your market to see what out comparable bikes that age are going for to determine which price you think is fair. Make sure the bike is your size, otherwise skip it.

thanks I appreciate the input

I also agree with the unreliability of BBB . I looked at BBB, and it gives a rough estimate, but the number of bikes available are too few and the variance in peices too great.

I was hoping someone with knowledge of the company and compnent types could shed some knowledge about this bike.

It was the lowest model Bad Boy of that year and has Altus/Alivio components. There is nothing wrong with this level, and they work as they should, but they are not higher end.

If the bike is your size and is clean / tuned, it is worth $300. Again this varies highly on your market, For example, in New York City, a clean and tuned up bike is worth more due to a larger market. Only you can make this call based on what other used bikes you see listed.

Condition and local market are everything to bike values. You don't list your location or any information about your local market, so it's pretty difficult to give an accurate assessment of what the bike might be worth (ultimately, it's worth what someone will pay!). BikeRoar.com indicates this bike to have components typical of a lower end hybrid bike, with house brand mechanical disc brakes and a mixed Sunrace/Shimano drivetrain with basic Altus level components (save for an Alivio rear derailleur). It has an aluminum frame, a rigid fork of unknown material, and 28mm tires on 622mm (often called "700c") wheels.

I would estimate this bike to have a value of $100-200 in my local market (western VA, about 1.5 hours west of DC). This bike may be worth $300 in DC proper, where demand for commuting bicycles is higher, but I doubt it'd fetch that here, even in terrific condition.

Welcome to the forum!

Thanks for the input!

I really had no idea local market had such a big impact on prices.
Also, thank you for your welcome message. I'm always surprized by the knowledge and expertise of this forums members

You are near my market, I've fixed up a few entry level rim brake hybrids and sold them in the $200-250 range. Physical condition they were in 8/10, but 10/10 for mechanical.

The disc brakes would bump the price up a little, if the rotors aren't rubbing.
