I have replaced the shifters now and all its in mint condition no worn out faulty parts even has original tyres with no noticable wear looks like its been used a few times and left in a shed
if you can get me some more like that for £40 pm me and i'll buy as many as you can supply
I buy and sell 20 bikes a week from a skip company and i get minimum £40 for cheap builds once they are cleaned and repaired
this is one of the better ones and so i thought id ask here
No hard feelings but you're either trolling or havnt got a clue about 2nd hand bike market
See the thing is, you came here asking for a valuation - and in the end are trying to play the expert card.
On the open market, locally, or on t'ebay you may, or may not fair better - but as to here, Chris makes a fair point - there's not a great deal of interest in hybrids, and in general, just because bikes are old, doesn't tend to make them terribly valuable - especially if they're just, really, quite normal, reasonable, unobtrusive bikes that are merely still around because nobody has scrapped them.
I can't say for sure, whether either £40 or £60 for here
is accurate, or pessimistic - but there's a DB Ascent / Ascent EX that's been on ebay, recently, starting price of £40 BIN of £65, that nobody seems to have been in a panic to snap up - and at least here
(which in fairness is where you asked) is more likely to be wanted, than a hybrid.
In short - you think it's worth loads more and can get it - then by all means, go to it. Suggesting that (by implication of asking here
) that people here should value it more and it be uber desirable here
may well be the result of unrealistic expectations.
edit: I probably don't need to ask this, you being an expert, and all, doing this all the time - but you mentioned v brakes, earlier, and replacing shifters - what you've replaced is compatible, isn't it? ie v brake levers with v brakes, cantis with canti brake levers?
