Estimate your spare parts bin retail value

If you could immediately get retail price back in exchange for all your SS/FG spare parts you're not currently using, how much money would appear in your hand?

HAHAHAHAHAHA! Probably 10kish at full retail value but of course a lot of stuff is used and not actually worth a ton. Though I have tons of stuff that is pretty handy to have around. Those who don't save parts are silly. Save parts they can be quite handy.

Maybe $30. Four inexpensive cogs in sizes other than 16. Both bikes are back to SS, so there isnít much SS stuff that isnít being used.

OTOH, the value of shifting-related parts not in use would be more!

Technically if you are just going single speed parts I would not be so high.

My fixed gear and single speed specific parts bin would be the cost of 2 Dura Ace cogs, a lockring and a WI freewheel and a not totally worn out but certainly quite used Miche chain and possibly a higher end KMC X1 chain and I guess a set of old langster wheels and a langster rio fork.

Like Veganbikes said, if you made it SS/FG-only it wouldn't be so high. Maybe a few hundred dollars. But I have a number of cranksets that COULD be used on a SS/FG bike and those alone are worth upwards of $100.00 to $150.00 each. Don't get me started on the handlebars, stems, etc. I don't want to really think about how much I really have honestly.

Most of it would be scrap value. I could probably get 30 bucks if I threw all of it in a box and sold it together.

Yeah, if I start adding up handlebars, derailleurs, shifters, stems, brake levers and cassettes, Iíd reach $500 at least. The plus side is that if I have a notion to try something new, thereís a fair chance I have all the stuff to do it. 😀
