    Default What's a fair price for 2001 Bianchi Strada?

    I need to upgrade and would like to sell my beloved, well-used 2001 Bianchi Strada.

    52cm
    SRAM 7.0 rear deraillleur
    Shimano Tiagra front derailleur
    Reynolds steel frame
    Chromoly Fork

    Tires in good shape; new rear gearshifter; new cassette and chain; new-ish brake pads and cables. Paint is chipping away but the frame is completely intact.

    Full specs here: http://www.bikepedia.com/quickbike/B...a#.Ut2M-vZOnZs

    Hoping to get $500 for it..

    I'd say half that.

    From a buyers perspective there are plenty of nice new hybrid/flat bar road bikes on the market in the $400-$700 range that I'd be more prone to put $500 towards.

    For a bike to retain 2/3 of it's retail value after 13 years is pretty rare.
    Has anything else been upgraded since 2001? Wheels?
    I'd include pics of where the paint is chipping.
    I think the frame being intact is a given. If it wasn't, I'd bet the bike wouldn't command more than $50.
    I'd think expecting $250 is more reasonable.

    I can assure you that the value of my 30 to 40 year old bikes exceed their original retail value.

    Default Agreed

    Bicycle Blue Book value seems right to me. Not a rare bike, component specs in the low to medium range, no special cachet about it. You can't let sentimental value cloud a realistic assessment of what someone might pay for it, when someone could walk into a Performance and buy a 2014 model right now with comparable specs (but much newer and better functioning components) for not much more than $500. Tiagra and similar SRAM components has benefitted hugely from trick-down of technology in that time period.

    But most 30 to 40 year old bikes are worth their scrap value. The same is true of most things. (E.g., cars, electronics.) There will be some percentage that turn into collectables, but that's going to be a very small fraction of the total.

    Inflation helps in these calculations as well.

    Note that the 2015 models are hitting the shelves right about now, so the 2014's are getting marked down. Bad time to sell a used bike.
