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

It's a 2005 Masi Gran Criterium S w/all Dura Ace (standard crank) and Bontrager Race Lite wheels. The bike was just tuned up and is in excellent condition mechanically and aesthetically. The frame is AL with CF fork, seat stays and chain stays. It's a size 58 and weighs about 17 lb 13 oz w/Speedplay Zeros

TIA. Pic to follow.

I can't imagine a bike like that one selling for more than $500

Don't know what this bike is worth, but, as a data point, I just sold a horrible, 2 x 9, 2012 Surly Crosscheck with good powder coat for 500.

I'm just going by the prices in Phoenix. He might get more for it, but I doubt it would sell fast.

I've owned a bike with that fork, and 25mm tires wouldn't fit. Being forced to use 23mm tires again would be a deal breaker,

I'm using 25mm tires on that Masi as we speak. Just as a point of reference the original price on this bike was $4200. My gf bought it for me as as birthday present in 2006 for much less. It was a new leftover. I'[ve spent years looking for this exact frame in a 56 but no luck.

I have that same fork, and yes 25mm will fit, but there's very little room left.

$500 is about all I would expect for that bike today, but there's a sucker born every minute.

Best thing to do is try and sell it for what you believe it is worth. See if you get any bites.

Best is to just try.

If something isn't vintage, and if it isn't modern 10 or 11 speed stuff.......it won't go for much.

I could see it maybe going for 6 or 7 if you find the right buyer, but that's a big if. It's not a desirable frame and groupset technology trickles down such that modern 105 (or maybe even Tiagra) is probably functionally superior to that DA.

Exactly what I had in mind. I just thought that the BF cognoscenti might give me an idea where to start. I appreciate the opinions.

FWIW, it's Dura Ace 10 sp w/standard 53/39 crank set.

I have a cross bike and the new CAAD 12 with 11 sp. 105. I don't know if I'd say the 105 is superior but it's as good for sure. I rode the Masi recently and was surprised at how good the DA is. Hats off to Shimano.

Surly has a following. They're a bunch of weirdos.

Better now that it's 10spd DA.

Around here at least, it's hard to find anything 10 or 11spd that isn't trashed for less than $600 to $700.

My 10spd Crockett was up there a few years back when I got it. It was hard to find anything under what I got it for and it was more than that.

7800 Dura-Ace is a great shifting groupset, but that 6700 crankset is an eyesore. What happened to the 7800 crankset? If the bike had a complete 7800 groupset, I could see it selling for $700 or more.

$500 came to mind upon seeing it, it's in great shape. List for $650, take $500-$550.

What you see is how it came from the LBS in 2006.

That crankset wasn’t available until June of 2009.

The bike was purchased in 2006. It was a 2005 model. After 2 seasons I replaced that crank set with an Ultegra 50/34. That crank was put back in the box and has been in my garage until last month when it went back on. I don't know what else to say. Other than what is on that bike, I have never bought anything Dura Ace. My other road bike (until I bought the CAAD 12 two weeks ago) is my Guru which came with SRAM.
