I'm typically the cheapskate around here, but with the Phil Wood hubs and Superbe Pro RD, I'd be a lot higher. If you are an end user, I'd gladly pay up to $350 for it, maybe more.

That being said, I have found the Denver market to be VERY soft. Every time I go to Denver, I come home with five or six bikes. Last trip in June I found so many I had to donate FOUR and sell a fifth as I ran out of room in my pickup! I'd have no problem paying $200 as a flip. I have a pile of wheels, so I would swap them out, and put a proper 600 RD on the bike.

Even in this current soft market, if it was listed for $150, you should have been driving: grab now, ask later.
