Post subject:  FSR Frame - haggling

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.

Ihave my 99 FSR on the bay of e atm, but dont think it will sell as I may have slightly overpriced it (so no one gets it for 99p :lol: ) would soooo love to keep it :cry: but I am wanting to start a new project :D

Do you think the frame with float,BETD and 20mm stack H/S is overly priced, because I cant adjust the price

Author:  Khane [ Tue May 24, 2011 10:16 am ]
Post subject: 

maybe put a link to your build thread in your ebay ad ;)

and honestly i'd say you were letting that go cheap with the shock & BETD link.

Post subject: 

lets face it the BETD link is £100+, the fox shock £50+ (i bought mine 2nd hand for £40) not sure on how much the headset costs but all in all that is a freakin bargain, wish i had the funds as i'd bite your hand off for it.

I worked it out at over £350 just in the frame, linkage, reducers, shock freshly serviced and headset (20mm to fit the e150s) and the disk brake adapter, so bargain to be had I think :wink:
