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

1996 LeMond Zurich

I have a 1996 LeMond Zurich with 150 miles on it. I want to know how much this bike is worth in the event that I consider selling it.
reply please!

Sir,

Bikes are not like cars and there is no Blue Book. It is simply a matter of what you want from it and see if you can get it.

I have a frame for sale and have had it at a shop here for over a year and people want it but they want to pay very little. I want more money for the frame as it means much to me and I want a real person that would apprexiate this frame to have it.

It may be same case with you.

As far as aguideline. See what is the price on the newer model and determine yourself.

It is worth less than you probably want for it. It isn't a classic ride and it didn't have a special group on it that would get collector interest. Still, it is a nice bike for the right person.

Given that, what size frame? If it is a popular size you might get more interest just because there are more folks out there in the bidding pool.

what material is it, if it's a good quality steel, you could get a nice price for it

So you only did 150 miles in 13 years. That means you only rode .03 miles per day.
