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

What do we have here?

Can somebody help me figure out what type of bike this is, year, and ideally a ballpark value as well. Neither of us are bikers, and my fiancee got this bike from her mom. She wants to sell it, and I told her I'd help her figure out the value. I know value isn't an exact science, but maybe at least what would be a "good offer" and what would be a "bad" one...

We'll probably take a shot with Craigslist, and if we don't get much, walk it up the street to the shop that buys and sells and see what they offer.

I tried to take a picture of everything I could that was labeled...

What area are you in DC777Fan? That can make a big difference.

I think you are all underselling this a bit. Here's a very similar bike, a 2002 CAAD4 r500, which is one notch down on the spec'ed components. It's at $400 shipped and still has 27 hours to go:
