Hi
Looking at selling a frame fork headset seatclamp, it's a 2011 Ridley Noah bollini team edition (amateur team I think) it has an integrated seatpost in size XS in great condition was used as a spare race bike but didn't see the road much, but what's it worth??
Cheers
Any help will be a real help

It's worth whatever the market will bear, which should be a lot for a frame like that. Put it on ebay with a 0.99 starting price and no reserve. Make sure you have a lot of good pictures with closeups. Take the photos outside during the day for best light. Have a very detailed description with all measurements and weights. You will get a ton of interest in that frame given the time of year and the notoriety of the brand. The fact that it is some obscure amateur team version will only enhance that. Presentation is crucial though. Copy the listing style of similar bikes that are auctioning well if you need to. Good Luck!

A size of XS might limit the number of potential buyers. Add in that it is used and you are already down to 50-60% of retail. If you don't like eBay, you can always post it in a cycling related forum.

XS can also work in your favor. If the frame is good, xs bikes are hard to track down, you just have to be more patient or pro-active finding a buyer.

i.e. A frame in 54cm would be less than 50%rrp when you walk out of the shop. A high end XS frame some people might may 70% rrp in good condition.

Why don't you post it on an auction website/CL/or listing and you will know the true value. True value= what someone is willing to pay for it. A new frame set is what $3500 new? Start it off at $2000 and see what happens from there.

Are you sure on the year and model on that bike? It doesn't have the split seat stays, split fork, integrated cable routing, or any of the other aero features of the 2011 Ridley Noah...and those rear dropouts look funky.

I've had a look through team bollini's photos and looks like they have the same bike for the 2009-2010 season does that sound about right??

Make sure that the auction ends around 10 central on a saturday or sunday night. That is not too late for the east coasters and is one our two hours after dinner for the west coast. You will have the most bidders during this time.

Tbf it does indeed but looking through a few pictures the seattube/post is thicker more aero than the Damocles ?

It seems you need to do your due-diligence research and determine the frame's exact model and year, and as in art, any addtional provenance you can provide on the frame (its history) both reassures buyers as well as increases the selling price.
