Harsh, but I guess not too far from the truth. What I really wanted to do is gauge if its even worth dusting the parts off. I tried to do this with out posting. It would be a shame to bin it all if someone could get some enjoyment out of them. Yeah, it would be nice to get a couple of quid to make it worthwhile me cleaning, packing and shipping but I don't expect them to make me wealthy.

eBay is the last resort. If its any consolation, I'll be doing the same on other forums with various other things, old mini stuff and magazines which I also expect to get very little for. I see it on the forums I frequent and I for one would rather see one mans junk saved from landfill if its another mans gold.

Apologies anyway, thanks.

ahh, I get ya :-) its cool 8)

I've recently got back into biking and have a new GT now, just wish it was as light as the old Discovery :shock: I'm moving soon and new to be a little more aggressive in clearing my garage, just so reluctant to scrap it.

Think I'll dismantle, clean up and photograph it all and post up here, at the last you get to see a good as new STX SE mech :lol: then take it from there.

stormwarning, these are my thoughts

Shimano Deore LX front mech - Barely used£10
Shimano STX "Special Edition" Rear Mech - Barely used £10 to £15
Shimano STX brakes/shifters (STI) - Barely used bit a few scratches from storage £20
Shimano STX cranks and chain rings - 21speed HG cass and IG chain. - barely used £15 - 20
Shimano Deore hubs probably only a few quid unless built up
Shimano Bottom bracket (think its a narrow one?) I recall it being very expensive. £5 to 10 unless its a un71
Wheels are ridgas (SP?) may need a little buckle removing. £15 to £20 with the buckle


i also think you should try the frame too. someone might like it if its cheap.

welcome to the site. dave[/b]

Hi,

I have a Cannondale Killer-V dating from 1996. It has a polished frame and is in good overall condition with a mix of vintage and modern parts. At the moment, I really just want to know what the bike is worth for sale. If anybody wants to make an offer for it, I will consider selling. I've attached a single picture but put a full set on the web here:

http://www.24hourpartypeople.net/24hour ... ndale.html

I have some Panaracer Fire XC Pro tyres that I can swap onto the wheels. Some road parts have been put on to make it more suitable for commuting. At the moment it has slick tyres, a road cassette and rear mech. Here's the full specification:

Cannondale Killer-V frame (medium size, polished aluminium with black decals)
Cannondale P-bone fork (polished aluminium with black decals)
Front wheel:
Ringle Super Bubba hub (blue, bearings replaced a year ago)
Mavic X619 front rim (ceramic coating)
DT Swiss double-butted spokes
Rear wheel:
Middleburn hub (red, factory serviced a year ago)
Mavic X717 rear rim (ceramic coating)
DT Swiss spokes
Schwalbe Marathon 26x1.5 tyres
X-Lite anti-theft skewers
Easton CT2 carbon seatpost
Chris King headset (Pewter)
Selle Italia Flite SLR saddle
Use ATOM stem
Avid Speed Dial 5 brake levers
Avid Single Digit 7 brakes, front and rear
KMC X9 silver chain
Shimano XT M770 Rapidfire rear shifter (Only one year old)
Shimano LX Rapidfire front shifter
Shimano XTR cranks (5 arm/bolt) with brand new matching XTR bottom bracket
Grey Middleburn hardcoat/slickshift chainrings (Only one year old)
Deore LX front derailleur

Some idea of the second-hand value would be much appreciated! If somebody felt like giving price estimates on some of the individual parts, that might also be helpful. I'd consider breaking it up if it was worthwhile to do so. Don't want a load of unwanted parts sat around in my shed, though.

- Matt

I have this Marin and I'm guessing that it is made in the year '94/'95. However, I am not sure of the model of this bike and I'm guessing that it could be a Muirwood. It comes with the original rigid fork, handlebar and stem all in which are blue in colour (similiar to the seatpost clamp). Any1 could help me determine what model exactly it is and what price would I be able to get for it? Thank you.

Hoping for some advice on this - http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=59965

I intend to sell the frame only. It's Reynolds 520 steel, size 17".

Anyone got a clue as to what I might expect for it
