Kilo tt frame/fork

hey guys/girls...need your expert brain to pick.

how much do you think a unused black KILO TT FRAME/FORK (with decals) can sell for?

Just got mine but thinking of switching out my frame/fork to a new no-decal color from BI (white perhaps).

thanks.

Wow...this is a nice, clever way to say "I'm selling my Kilo TT frame & fork. How much will you pay me for them?" without actually saying it.

sounds like it yeah

but no, I'm just seeing if it's worth the hassle/loss (or I just suck it up and stick with decals/color).
when/if I do sell I will duly post on the appropriate forum.

thanks.

You might be able to get up to $150 on your local CL.

Strip it and clearcoat over the raw....That's what I'd do.

Don't you hate when you get a bike, component, or anything else for that matter because you absolutely love it, then you ride/use it for close to a year and don't really like it anymore? Maybe it's because the strippers and WT came out way after I bought my Kilo. How 'bout a Stripper WT, I'd get rid of mine for that Fo Sho. That's it, I'm just gonna strip mine and clear coat it.....probably do my MTB too while I'm at it.
