I went to pick up some new forks for my BFe tonight and the chap had a fairly well used Cannondale Martin Ashton frame that hasn't been used for ages. He will happily sell it but said make him an offer.

Unfortunately, I have no idea what these are worth - I don't need it in any way whatsoever, however if I can get it for the right price I'll snap it up.

Any advice on what it is worth would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Bearing in mind the MA frame is only a Beast of the East / F series frame at heart, then I don't think I'd offer a great deal for it (certainly less than £100), especially if it's in a well used condition.

I sold a very very good condition F700 frameset with Headshox forks, stem and Cannondale chainset for just over £100...

Cheers mate.

I don't want to pay much for it, partly because I'm tight and partly because I don't really need another bike or project. Trouble is, I do have a soft spot for Cannondales especially those in the team Volvo colours. I'll make a cheeky offer and see what he says.

Not got any...it's technically not for sale. Its just hanging up in a shed looking a bit sad and unloved.

I can't afford it for a bit anyhow, so I'll make him and offer in a few weeks and see what happens.

On a separate note, I think I'm going to have my Beast of the East painted in metallic grey and build it up as a single speed bike so it's a bit different to my others. It'll also be finished quicker. If I hate the single speed thing, I'll add gears at a later date.

My 'Dale is going no where! Well, only to the painters at some point.

I really 'need' that Martin Ashton frame. Definitely going to make a cheeky offer on it at the end of May.
