Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Six13 frame value

I'm looking at purchasing a six13 frame that has mismatched bars, stem, seat post, and crank. No wheels, shifters, or derailleurs. It's the polished/raw carbon version and i really want it but don't want to overpay. How much would be a reasonable offer without spending too much?

Hi
what is the condition of the area where carbon meet the frame?
Any corrosion to the aluminium?
does the for have enough steering column?

I wont put any real value to the bar stem post, especially they are mismatched.

IMHO 250-350 range would be reasonable depending on condition.

Hard one. I ride one, painted. I think it is at the point it will start going up in value. Tremendous frame. Coming from a guy who's has/had S-WORKS Tarmac, Venge, MASI ... a bunch.

So for straight used value - $200?

I'd pay $500 for a 59cm in that polished frame, more for nostalgia.
If it is a 59cm and you want a broker fee - PM me.

Minor galvanization. Carbon looks good. The accessories all look like Aliexpress garbage so no value there. I have a 5800 group laying around and everything else it will need to get rolling. I was going to offer 350-400. With some light buffing it should be a stunning ride.

do you have enough steering column for the fork? (I am guilty of not noticing a slammed stem set up on a previous used frame purchase)

With Oxidation issue see if you can push it in the lower 3 range. ( from what I have seen it is a very common issue with those hybrid Cannondales with a the bare alum. clear coated)

good luck.

Pretty good stack of spacers. I'm comfortable with the amount of tube left.

Also, it depends on which version of Six-13. The original had three carbon tubes (Downtube, Top Tube and Seattube.) The second version was DT and TT. Third was only TT.

And which fork does it come with? The nicer versions came with the Slice Premium Plus, which had carbon dropouts and was a true weightweenie fork.

Lastly, what crank does it come with? Some came with the original Hollowgrams. Some came with the Carbon SI, which were made by FSA for Cannondale and are still really stiff and light. Then some came with a threaded bottom bracket.

With the minor galvinazation, I'd offer maybe $250. Once that starts, things will eventually go down hill. I'm fairly confident my System 6 was separating and the two tubes rubbing against each other at the downtube-bottom bracket joint before I got hit by a car and cracked it.

There are four versions of the Six 13, and none of them had just the top tube in carbon. The first version had three carbon tubes, then they moved to just two. In 2006 they also made a lower-tier version with just one carbon tube, but it was the down tube. All of these were essentially a CAAD frame with some tubes cut out and replaced with carbon. The final version introduced in 2008 had a more upright geometry and wasn't available with a clear coat finish, but it still had the two carbon tubes.
