Managed to get a 97 kilauea with, i think (after a quick look at the catalogue), entirely original parts except for the seatpost (which might be a USE titanium post? - it has a shim inside the seatpost, about 25mm diameter and is extraordinarily long!).

I'm probably going to swap out most of the bits so i was just wondering if theres any value in them or should they just be binned (moving house at the end of the summer so time for a clear out).

Thanks,

Graham.

great bike you got 8) - that Columbus Cyber framed bikes offer a great ride, I would ride the bike as it is and have fund with it.

I would express great interest in the grips and the saddle :D

Sorry, just to be clear, I wasnt planning on selling the whole bike.

I want the frame but was just wondering if any of the other parts had any value to anyone (just in case i was rich and didnt realise!).

As i'm in Sweden just now its not really worth the hassle of sending cheap stuff to the UK but i thought i'd check before i transfer the bits onto my 'dont really mind if it gets thieved' run around town bike.

Thanks,

Graham.

In a nutshell. seems clean and tidy and tbh rather nice. the rest has value - quite a bit but it a shame to break it . it is however your bike! clean nice stuff like that will go quite some way to funding a new build.
