not only do bicycles depreciate extremely quickly, but anyone looking to spend that much money on a bike is going to be more inclined to buy their own
also the steerer tube looks to be cut, that could potentially be an issue (not guaranteed to be, it just limits your potential buyers)
the color is literally going to make no difference, don't tell yourself that, it's not really a special color scheme (every fred has at least one red bike) and 40 isn't really that low of a number, but anyone who desperately wanted this frame and wanted it in red would already have it
if it truly has such expensive components your best bet might be to part it out and sell everything individually
a $400 stem is going to have no added value to someone who uses a shorter stem. a carbon setback seatpost will offer no value to someone who uses a zero offset seatpost. you've spent thousands of dollars on this bike crafting it to your specifications, and your only hope of getting any money back at all is to find someone whose specifications are identical to yours.
tip: you're not going to, which is why it might make sense to sell the shifters, frame, seatpost, saddle, stem, bars, derailleurs, chainset, etc. separately. you'll be able to get a higher value for each part and most likely be able to move everything quicker. but I'm sure you knew what you were getting into when you bought it.
good luck selling it and good luck with the canyon. that's a lovely fucking bike but like >913837 and >>913864 said, they've been struggling to get their shipments out on time (or really to get them out at all)
>>913869 Spec list as follows: Full Sram Red 22, with a Quarq Red 22 Power Meter Deda Zero100 Bars & Stem. S-Works Romin Evo Saddle. FSA K-Force Lite 25mm setback seatpost. Dura-Ace 9000 Direct-mount front brake(Frame takes DM only for front). Shimano RS-81's with Schwalbe One's.
It's not the colourway that's important, it's the model. This is the 'Ultimate', The highest level frame in the Aircode Series. Every model below this one uses a frame with inferior weight and layup. This is the model FDJ took to the Tour, and only 40 or so were brought over here, for 23 Million people. Think of it as the S-Works version of the Aircode(i.e, the level up from every other model).
>>914003 >Full Sram Red 22 Please don't tell me you're valuing this at $2,500 when you can get it for $1,100 and so on.
>The highest level frame in the Aircode Series. Every model below this one uses a frame with inferior weight and layup. The highest model of an old year, soon to be obsolete by the new whatever disc aero pro thing.
>This is the model FDJ took to the Tour And didn't even win.
> only 40 or so were brought over here, for 23 Million people 23 million people want that? And are incapable of spending a couple hundred dollars shipping one internationally? Are you a literal retard?
>>913838 Spoken like a true JellyPoorFag. Enjoy your $50 rusty Goodwill bike, held together with duct tape and bailing wire.
>>913810 There are 'blue book' sites out there for used bike value, go find them.
Also be sure to keep rubbing your >$10000 bikes in /n/'s face OP, you'll make lots of friends that way around here. /n/ is chock full of poorfags who will hunt you down and kill you because you dare to remind them that they're poor and apparently you're not.
Not me, though. Of course if you have a bike like that and you're not actively training and road racing all year 'round and 'just riding' it, then you're a waste and really should just bugger off.
OP Here. I'm well aware of the depreciation of new bikes after the first 6 months or so, but I can say the frame is in extremely good condition, and the parts were serviced by the team mechanic regularly. I'm simply asking for a reasonable selling point for this bike, so I can cover as much of my next bike as possible. I've changed to a team without a bike sponsor, and so have free choice. I don't really care about your thoughts on how badly you lads think I fucked up by owning anything other than an old-ten speed and riding in anime jerseys. Truth is, I only needed to spend about $3.5k on the bike thanks to sponsorships, discounts, sales etc. So I'm essentially going to be making money from the sale, regardless. I do see the sense in being frugal though, and recouping the costs of my next bike as much as possible. If I have the money for a high-end bike, it's my money to burn, get over yourselves. I appreciate the genuine replies.
>>914050 There is exactly one "blue book" site for used bike value and it's literally the same as just making up a price in your head, because that's exactly what the site does (they took an excel sheet of a few thousand ebay sales and extrapolated values across all other bikes and every model year they could pull out of their ass).
Hence making it nothing like the actual Kelly Blue Book for murdercages, which uses millions of formally recorded data points for every calendar year obtained from public records, and is adjusted for a ton of variables by full-time professional valuation analysts.
Also it is very unlikely you make more than me. Possible, sure, but very unlikely.
>>914050 >buying new bike because my new team has no bike sponsorship >team Kek ok
OP just go lurk the Bicycle Market fb page and see what sorta equivalent bikes are going for in aus. I reckon around 3-3.5k with the shimano trainers isnt out of the question though. Dont listen to the filthy neets on here
