Cheers FC :-)

Gives me some idea what to ask...

Yeah i'm aware that once it is fitted it no longer NOS; it was just an indicator that the parts mentioned were "as new" (less than 20 hours ride time??), and not seen 20 years worth of use.

Form a disorderly queue pls......

Since buying a road bike my Uzzi SL has hung in the garage for 6 months. So if I am not riding it I hope someone else may enjoy it. I am after an idea of value either splitting or selling whole. It is a bit of a mix n match with components. I have owned the frame since new and replaced components as required.

1998 INTENSE Uzzi SL - medium - Anodised Black frame and polished rear. Fox Vanilla R shock. It has had a dent in the down tube just in front of BB for the last 8 years thanks to a stone at guisborough - shown in last picture.
XT rapidfire shifters.
Controltech seat post and stem.
X-lite X-country bars.

I rebuilt beginning last year adding:-
2004? Manitou Black travel adjust 90-120 forks.
FSA big fat pig headset.
Shimano M525 disc brakes.
Hope front hub + Mavic 717 rim
XT rear hub + DT Swiss X455 rim
with XT mechs and XT crankset.

Not sure whether I should sell my GT STS 1000DS or not!
The shock has been unbolted while the stays are polished.
What's it worth?!

Thinking about selling my GT Karakoram steel frame. I like it but it is way too big for me. It has original paint, minor scretches but no dents. Not sure which year, mid-nineties I guess.

I'm not an expert so how much would be fair to ask?

That one's definitely a splitter as it's so randomly mis-matched (no offence intended - I don't mind a mix up personally but it won't help it reach it's potential value :wink: ), forks may be the most valuable, Ritchey stuff not bad either.

You should be able to get individual prices off the sale section here and ebay pretty easily.

I want to replace the frame only, I will put the other parts on a smaller one. What can I ask for the frame only? :roll:

Hi, Sorry this post keeps appearing all over the place, not sure if its me or my PC thats rubbish!
I have a 1997 black Marin Rift Zone with a couple of hundred miles on it, if that. I have owned it from new, but started working overseas just after I got the bike, so it has been sat under a cover in the garage ever since. It has no dings or scrapes, etc. that I can see, pretty much as new.
I think it is a 15.5” frame and is totally original except for having a shorter stem(?) that holds the handlebars - but I still have the original also.
The full spec is at :http://www.bikepedia.com/quickbike/BikeSpecs.aspx?Year=1997&Brand=Marin&Model=Rift+Zone&Type=bike
It has all the original component documentation, bill of sale and 1997 colour Marin brochure.
I want to get back into biking, but as I’m getting on a bit, will probably go for a cross over type bike.
Can anyone advise what the bike is worth so I can advertise it for a fair price?
Cheers
Davetronic

Thats a stunner!.
Though early marin bouncers aren't particularly valuble.
I was on the hunt last year and saw a few reach £200 plus but not by much.
Typical my bloody size too and right after I'd decided no bikes :roll:
