How much is it worth?

This is my Virtuoso, Im not sure what year it is! It's 14 speed and equiped with Shimano RSX. It's got the original wheels. It's just had a service and is running as it should. It's 55cm and has an adjustable stem. In general good condition. Just had new bar tape and a new front tyre and tube.

What do you lot reckon it's worth?

    You'll probably make more money by splitting the frame and components, otherwise use £100 as a guide price.
    Make mine an Italian, with Campagnolo on the side..

    anyone else got any comments?
  • Benchmarking against other Virtuoso's on eBay I'd say £100 is the upper range you can expect to get, especially as the new Virtuoso is currently retailing at £299. If my memory serves, 7-speed RSX were mid-1990s groupset so the bike is getting on in years. I'd think you can expect to get between £50-£100.
    Training is like fighting with a gorilla. You don’t stop when you’re tired. You stop when the gorilla is tired.

    May the road rise up to meet you.
    May the wind always be at your back.

    I wasn't expecting massive amounts for it but after taking it for a spin this evening just to check all is running well I might just keep it and use it as my commuter, it was surprisingly pleasant to ride!
