I was just wondering if I could get some help from the bicycle peeps?

I need to sell off a couple of bikes. I was wondering if you guys could give me some advice on how much I should ask for them and where(besides CL) I should list them.

Thank you for taking the time to look and to possibly give some advice.

Josh

First up

1989 Bertoni Italamerica 56 cm

I bought this brand new from Aurora Cycle in 1990.

It was (I believe) the first year of the Shimano 105 group.

Columbus tubes

Mavic MA40 wheels

It has a few scratches here and there and will need tires and tubes and a tune up.

But it's all there...even has old school Samson clipless pedals.

















Next is a 1995 or 6 Cannondale Cad3 bike I built.

It is an 18" or 45.7cm

It has various differnet componets from Shimano, Pullstar front wheel and so on. I think I covered most of the componets in the pics.

Amen to that! All you have to remember is that Hayes makes brakes for Harley Davidson. By far the worst I've ever had the displeasure of using.

I'm a Hope fan myself, absolutely loved the 6 piston Ti's on my DH rigs and will hopefully have a stylie pair of pink anodized mini's with flower cut rotors for my new Intense (if the boys didn't sell them out from under me)-I used to be the rep for the Canadian distributor of Hopes and Surly etc.
here are the 6 pots with floating rotors-by far the best modulation I've ever used. And yes, they were fine hanging upside down too.

I'd check out bikeforums.net or the roadbikereview.com forums for a place to sell or get more feedback. As for the 105 I had it on my '87 Cannondale. In my experience unless the bike is a collectable you don't get much out of 'em when you sell.

Good Luck

There's a fairly strong Retro section at RBR. Them bastages keep fueling my lust for the stuff I couldn't have when I first started riding.

Ebay is yer friend too. Assuming... Assuming you hit it at the right time (now!) and write up a good description of whatchoo got and why they want it. Bertoni isn't a household name, so you may wanna spring for the upgraded listings to draw attention to it. Oh, and IIRC the Matrix tubeset was mid-level at best, so don't expect a mint for the bike.

Seriously good luck with our bike sales. Old bikes can be tricky, we pay a lot for our bikes but once they get 10 years old or so, their value isn't much. Unless you find a collector of course.

Perfect weather, so I got a ride in after work.

22 miles along the river trail.


And the river,

Nice picture. I wish I had a place like that to ride. With the rain lately, it has just been rollers. I guess I could take a picture of the basement wall with a DVD playing. :grn

It is back up again tonight. Not sure how long it was down. I was waiting for BOBO to post up about my paint drying comment.

I gave away my roller when I left Colorado.

This river parallels the busiest freeway in Southern California. But there are points where it feels like a million miles from here. But, it's flat, and about 200 feet above sea level. I miss being able to ride from 6,000 feet to 14,000 feet.

OK, Friday old age kicking in.

Friedquads down again.

Any reason why the smilies work and then don't here. I used to type them in, and now I click on them and they still don't work. :-) I guess I will go back to the old emoticons from the 80's
