I've seen a two year old Ribble grand fondo on eBay for sale at £800 plus delivery costs of £20, it has SRAM rival group set, with ITM wheels, there are no bids at the moment but the seller is asking £800 initial bid, it's just what my son would like for Xmas, it looks a tad expensive for two years old to me, but not being an expert on 2nd hand prices I would value any of your opinions on it, don't know how to put a link to it so forgive my ignorance on that score,

    Sorry, mis spelt, obviously meant grand fondo....
  • Of the 3 GF's listed it is the cheapest one but anyone can ask whatever they want for anything on ebay.

    Whether it is worth it is up to the buyer, if they think the price is okay then they buy if not they don't!

    according to the ribble bike builder that bike new is £1200 - so its a 33% discount on new. You can get that sort of deal on new bikes around that price level. So I would hunt around for new.

    I've got a Gran Fondo and would definitely recommend but that looks pricey to me. I paid £960 new with veloce and khamsin wheels in October 2010 (pretty sure 105 was similarly priced with the ITM wheels) so selling on without any significant upgrades at £800+ after 2 years would be a good result for the seller. Other things to consider are level of use, condition, whether it's been serviced, etc.

    Good luck finding something suitable and if you do go for the Gran Fondo, I'm sure you won't be disappointed.
