I would take off the Aero bars and sell it as a road bike on Ebay.

My God man, what are you thinking. You dont sell such a magnificent beast. You pay a taxidermist good coin to have her stuffed and mounted over the fireplace. One can then sit back in the late hours while puffing on a post brandial cigar and wonder what might have been...

if you sell the wheels seperately you'll probably make more money.

Break the wheels and the bike up and sell seperatly.....

Bang on a set of solid wheels like Askiums in black would be nice.....

You will get between 35% nad 45% of rec retail back for 2nd hand sale for each item.

If you keep it all together you will not get value back for all the after market go fast stuff.

Price them low on ebay. Do not use buy it now it creates a ceiling price.

FWIW I have sold 3 bikes and 3 sets of wheels on ebay.....

Edit - pics were not working before... Thought it had clipons and STI... too hard to strip off front end....

:lol:

Yeah mate as suggested go Ebay. For shipping Greyhound freight is very reasonable from bus depot to bus depot. Allow $100-150. Start off with a low initial bid sit back and watch it go. For a Bike list it for the 10 days so as many people as possible see it.
