my ride finally done :D but might sell due to injury :(

Postby jeff_o » Sun Feb 27, 2011 7:30 pm

In continuation of my earlier thread viewtopic.php?f=11&t=37916

here it is, finally done this afternoon. went to cellbikes (got lost going there) to buy all the stuff my tire needs then went home then put them all together. I actually rode it and it was ok... but felt heaavvyyy. I saw the CELL full carbon bike and it was very tempting to upgrade. sigh :(

hey mates any ideas just in case I decide to sell my bike how much is it worth?

Very nice. I have a machine of similar age with RX 100 Group-set. I think the RX100 was a quality piece of kit. :wink:

hi mates... thanks for all the compliments... prior to completing the bike I was already training in the gym on stationary cycles (highest load, out of the saddle) in preparation for real bike riding. but due to a pelvic injury in the past, I might need to sell this. I'm not updated with the prices of steel cr-mo bikes now, so if I decide to sell, can someone give me an idea how much is a fair price for a bike like mine given it's pristine condition?

Sorry to hear about the injury Jeff.

I'd give you $20 for her but that's because I'd need the balance of what I think she's worth as rent in advance about 7seconds after uttering those fateful words: "Sweetheart, I got a new bike" :wink:

Good luck with it mate.

You would have to discount it as the second "I" is missing from aluminium. :P

It says Aluminum on the tube, you're saying it's Cr-Mo, is Aluminum the model name or something?
I say keep it and work on getting your hip sorted out, you never make your money back on a bike.

janus: Those are just stickers. it's not an aluminum bike. it's a tange II cr-mo custom frame bike. I will stop riding for a while and check myself into rehab (not charlie sheen rehab) :mrgreen:

R12: it's actually consistent.... cannondale is made in the US and americans spell aluminium without the second 'I' :mrgreen:
