Default Questions about value of bicycles.

Which one of you owns a bicycle shop and sells bicycles so that you know the true worth of a bicycle? My idea that the only one actually able to make such evaluations is Andrew. So perhaps Jay could suggest why he believes my bike to be worth less than the average cost of other like bikes on eBay based upon his belief that having a bike provided to him at special dealers discount makes him an expert on value?

I stayed out of the conversation as I had nothing to offer.

We parted company with Trek years ago and we do not sell
used equipment here.

carry on!

Half of the bike shops in the area sell only new, the other half a mixture and one sells only used bikes. I would worry about selling only new bikes but they are all of the child to young men's starter bikes. And my guess is that he gets a lot of them donated to get them out of the garage since the bike hasn't been ridden in a decade and Junior is now in University.

I looked it up on the Bicycle Blue Book. A 2018 Emonda SL6 (no Di2) in
very good condition (minor cosmetic defects) has a private party range
of $1,641-$1,691.
https://www.bicyclebluebook.com/value-guide/product/3075337/.

So with the Di2 addition figure $2200-2300 for a private party sale.

Not read said thread as I generally skip the arguments, the value will be
what ever it sells for as and when you do.

No, my son tried to sell his SL6, had no takers and ended up parting it out.. This was just before COVID, however, and it didn't have UDi2 -- but I think it had a Stages power meter and some other stuff. Your luck may be better.

Meanwhile, my son sold my former stolen-and-recovered by PPB Roubaix for a ridiculous amount -- but not as ridiculous as what he got for his 2017 S-Works Tarmac with eTap. The Emondas are great bikes but don't have high resale values for some reason. No sex appeal. People will pay a boat-load for even an old S-Works.

be worth more then 9 million dollars :-)

So, you're no expert and know nothing about it but you are going to take the word of the internet morons as your expertise. I suppose that shows you for what you are. Do you take the word of the Internet for the value of a home for sale?

That's quite true Roger and I've already turned down offers well above that moronic pricing of Scharf who insists on being ignorant of every part of the world around him.

I sold a couple of bikes just before Covid19 and I discovered that it is hard to sell a bike via the Dutch craiglist for a reasonable price if it doesn't have disc brakes, if not CF and for a ATB also is not 29". I think your bike would go for around 1500-200- euro over here. I tried to sell this bike:

I got offers for around 500-600 euro because it was 6 years old at that time, aluminum frame and no disk brakes. No one cares about the pristine condition and that it had quality parts and weighs 7.5 kg including pedals. I turned them all down. Fortunately a son of a colleague was looking for a bike and that colleague knows how I take care of my stuff and was able to sell the bike for 975 euro with another (cheaper) saddle and one water bottle cage (King Cage).
