Women's road bike- what's it worth?
 
4 Attachment(s)
We bought this about 7 years ago; it was used in one triathalon, then stored on a hook. Is this worth much? I don't remember what we paid... less than $300 iirc. Anyone's :Princess: need a road bike?

It had a flat tire, I swapped the tube and took it for a spin around the neighborhood, actually kinda fun I forgot how fast road bikes are. Not for me though, and this one fits someone closer to 5'5".


5/28edit: Bike be Marco's now.

Lugged steel Yokota, not a super high end bike back in the day (they are not Japanese, they were made in Taiwan). Made early to mid 1990s, they stopped making bikes in about 1996. I'd guess about $600 when it was new. The 7-speed Ultegra is probably original.

Take it down to Pearl Street and find the skinniest dude about 5'6" with the tightest jeans, he'll probably give you $100 for it just so his fixie is not a Miyata or Raleigh.

I liked my mid 80's Miyata.... What are you getting at?

But that is pretty good advice :lmao: Its very dated and not worth much.
