dont' worry i'm not after any £200-400 wheelsets :twisted: which makes people kick off on here :!:

Just wonderin if anyone knew how much a focus variado 07 frame would sell for :?: , I haven't got any idea how much they would go for becuase of wiggle only selling them as complete bikes and only want to know to get a rough price to see how much it would go towards a new cervelo/rourke/scott frame in the summer time.

Cheers

    Is it just the frame or frame and forks?
    I'd probably hope to get around £120 - £150 for frame and forks if in reasonable condition

    It'd be frame and forks, the frame is in pretty good order I've taken a few stickers off the forks and theres a little chip behind one seatstay but other than that its been looked after so i don;t know how much that would take off price

    found a picture of it that was on the check out my bike gallery a few months back

    A frame and forks probably represents about 30-40% of the total value of the bike and for 2nd hand, assume you're going to get about 60% tops of what it's worth - so if you paid £1000 for the bike, assume that the f+f was worth £400 and therefore expect about £250 at the most - this will vary due to things like condition, colour and size. The Varadio frame is alloy and there is a huge choice of cheap new frames, which will probably depress your price further - £150 is entirely realistic. Worth looking on ebay to see what similar frames are going for.
    Make mine an Italian, with Campagnolo on the side..

    cheers for the prices that you reckon it'd make

    I'll probly watch about a bit until I decide what to do to see how much the focus frame could go towards a new frame in the summer
