What would STW pay assuming you actually wanted to buy the parts? In the spirit of Christmas and all that can we get a STW consensus on prices?
Frame, CK headset, Salsa seat clamp & Surly chain tugs sell together for £500 posted
Forks - £190 posted
Wheels to include SS kit & tyres - £150 posted
Brakes - £240 posted
Chainset - £250 posted
Frame £300-£350 absolute max for me. It is unique and interesting but not worth more than some of the other steel offering you could buy new. £350 buys a big name used full sus frame secondhand too. I still feel that is a generous price though
Forks £120. Kind of cool but the same forks can be purchased from other manufacturers new for comparable prices, they aren't all that light in reality and there's so many good value rigid forks out there at the moment.
Wheels.. maybe £120. Not too overpriced but XT hubs and old generations rims don't excite me too much.
Brakes £150 at most. Seeing as I bought a full XTR set new for £240 (£300 currently on Merlin before other discounts) and R1's can be had new for £250-280 there's no way the asking price is attractive.
Chainset £140 max. It feels a generous price but probably fair to the seller. Again, I bought the same chainset for £150 on CRC so the asking price is ambitious. At the moment there a display one on CRC for £180 (albeit no BB). Whichever way you look at is £250 is very ambitious.
Am I generous or stingy compared to everyone else?
