    I'd guess at approx 50%-60% of original price.
    Carlsberg don't make cycle clothing, but if they did it would probably still not be as good as Assos

    I could have sold my Claude butler 10 times over on ebay - Put a reserve of £450 and see what happens. A bidding war could break out.

    Thanks alot for that. I've never used ebay before, What about postage or will they collect.

    If you insist they collect it will seriously restrict the number of bidders. Just say delivery at cost. Loads of bikes go mail order; it can't be that expensive. Make sure it's insured though

    I've sold two bikes on ebay, both of which I got 60% of the original cost. One was a 5 year old cannondale :shock:
    Both times I put collection or delivery at buyers arrangement. That way it's up to them to arrange a courier and the necessary insurance.

    As APIII said, if they want a courier they can sort it...
