    If you're putting them up for sale here, you need to put up your own asking price. Best thing to do is look for comparable ads on done deal, adverts etc and go from there

    Well the Crankset on the Paganini isn't 6800 it's R8000 I believe so could be the same for the groupset.

    Last years pricing has cooled a bit I'd say the Boardman €600-€800 and the Paganini €800-€1100 I'd check the groupset on that one. At the end of the day they're worth what someone is willing to pay I guess. If advertising you'll need more info than just Large some brands are a 56 Large and others 58.

    @iwillhtfu thanks for that. Very helpful info.

    I'll have a go with those prices and see how I get on.

    you can tell the RD is 6800 though.

    curious as to whether you might get more by splitting the bike, especially the paganini. with groupset availability being what it is, you could potentially sell the wheels, groupset, and frame separately? was the bike sold to you as a whole bike, i.e. do you know how much the frame might have been new?

    I sold one of those Boardman’s recently for €600. Yours looks in fine condition so I’d say it could fetch 600-650. It’s fairly dated at this point.

    The Paganini looks mint. Love the color scheme! But it’s not a mainstream brand. Somewhere close to a grand for that I reckon.

    Paganini a long established Italian manafacturer. used to produce high qality steel racing frames. Mostly Carbon now but still excellent quality. See 20 year old ones on club spins in near perfect condition.

    Lovely paint job too

    Cycle Super Store / would be retailing the Boardman at 1000 and the Paganini at 2000 if you were walking in off the street.

    Inflated? Of course, but sellers market right now really.

  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 18,220 Mod ✭✭✭✭Weepsie have bikes at inflated prices that have not moved on for ages though. They had a Genesis CdF for under what I'd have expected though and it was gone within 2 days. I don't think it's as much a sellers market as it was even just 6 months ago, and I say this thinking I should hurry up and list my Argon 18 if I want it gone

  • Registered Users Posts: 802 ✭✭✭nicksnikita

    I wouldn’t dispute the quality of their bikes.

    But that doesn’t make it a mainstream brand.

    600 and 1000 is fair I think. I'd go a bit higher if using adverts, add 700 and 1150 maybe. I'd also take more photos & give more details (exact sizing, use etc)

    900-1000 first one

    6-700 second one, although I would say the lower end if you want them to sell

    Paganini was a an Italian manufacturer but the company who produced the steel frames is long out of business. The name was bought by another company. The frames are Chinese generic that are sold without any branding or logo - nothing wrong with them as such but not made by an Italian craftsman. You'd buy one for about a grand new
