What would be the market value, unused, of these bikes? I was expecting to see them on eBay, but have not.
BV's T&Cs imply a $250 "new" value, but that seems excessive.
Its just that a friend asked to buy mine (way back - ordered it in her size), so I need a reasoanble guess at its value. Maybe $120-150? ($199 in shops?)
The X-marts are full of cheap MTBs, but its hard to compare road bikes.
I just brought a new drive train for my bike $250 and two new tyres $80. Two months ago I chained my bike to a light pole and broke (bent) the front derailleur another $60 (a cheap one was $25). Also one of the shifters died on me another $40. I was just thinking if you plan on riding your "green machine" a lot. At $150 for a whole bike a spare one might be a cheap source of spare parts.
