i offered the seller of this £75.
I have a counter offer, but what do people reckon is a fair value for this?

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Specialized-FSR-frame-17-inch-Great-condition-/290567011622?pt=UK_sportsleisure_cycling_bikeparts_SR&hash=item43a724bd26#ht_720wt_1140

I'm investigating as my current FSR has a dent in the seat tube which im trying to tackle fitting a front mech to. Thought i'd give an offer to see where it gets me.
Surprised i got a second chance to be honest!

Prices for these seem to be all over the place at the moment e.g. Somebody bought this for £56 and if you look closely it has a lot of BETD goodies:

I must confess if I hadnt bought mine for a very good price - see show us your FSR's I would probably have bought this one or indeed Carge's since by the time you factor in postage and the brake adapter it is cheaper than the one you are interested in.

i'd say appox £150 for a minty fresh one, but i think anything over £100 for a frame is a bit over the top imo.
