I've got a 16" Cnoc to sell and was on ebay trying to get an idea of the going rate for them.(RRP £200)
There were, as expected, plenty selling for £140- £150 but what staggered me was the number of bikes going for over £180, over £190 incl P&P and even £206 including P&P second hand
I spoke to Islabikes and he said it was nothing to do with delivery times, but could be due to the fact that they no longer sell abroad and so people are buying them on eBay For over RRP as it’s the only way to source them from the continent.
Now I knew that Islabikes hold their value well, I was thinking around 75% RRP, but this is just bonkers. When I spoke to him on the phone I asked to order 5 Cnocs in a half joking way. have we now got to the stage where Islabikes are like art, Whisky and vintage wines and become appreciating assets?
