Though honestly, I think I'd have problem sleeping at night if I had to store a 5 k$ bicycle in a shed. But then I would not use such a bike to commute daily anyways, so keeping it inside probably would not be as troublesome.

 

I think you need to be more precise about what you mean by "storing". Will it be used daily, or do you want long-term storage?

 I ride daily-every 2 days or so, I mean somewhere to put my bike when it's not being ridden, I don't own a shed or a garage, only places to keep it are in the house, So I need a better place to put it than just leaning against a chest of drawers

I have the top version in wood.  Mine is in a separate room now but I used to keep it in the spare bedroom on this.  It was totally out of the way!

Can you hear me screaming in frustration from the winter wasteland outside of Chicago?

Here's the deal here.  It is just cold.  Because of the weather changes we have had no measurable snow in a year.  Last winter one tiny snow storm.  I used to ride in winter but honestly I just got tired of freezing!  No winter sports here at all(people hibernate except for the bold few-we've been playing soccer outside!).  When I used to live in Salt Lake City I was a SKI BUM for three years straight.  It was awesome!!!

Guys, I'm planning on selling my 2011 Specialized Tarmac Rival.

It has less than 100 miles on it and is in pretty much new condition except for a scratch on the side of the seat.

 

I want to sell it quick to get some LCD-2's =D

What is a fair price to put it at?  

 

Also, I'm just using craigslist right now, but are there better places to try to sell it?

 

Thanks!

Well if it's in that good of shape and with so little use I'd say start it off at $2000 (The Rival is $2700 new, right?) on craigslist or anywhere else you try to sell it. But make sure you are going to give yourself some wiggle room for negotiating prices and that you'll be happy with what you let it go for.

 

As for places to sell, you could try to post an add on http://www.pinkbike.com/ in the Buysell section though I don't know if you would be willing to take it apart and ship it anywhere. If you were willing to do that, it would open you up to a much larger group of potential buyers.

 

You could also try http://www.mtbr.com/ though I personally have never had great experience selling anything on that site.

Or you could put it up on the head-fi Speakers, Cables, Tweaks, and Accessories FS forum.

Nice for $945.00 Top Features of the Wilier La Triestina Cross 105 2012 The La Triestina Cross is designed for those who enjoy cycling on muddy and impassable tracks during cyclocross events. It's also great for a Winter bike when the weather is particular bad and your favourite lanes are not at their best. Shimano 105 components FSA Omega cross specific chainset (48x34) Shimano RS wheels with Maxxis Larsen cross tyres fitted Road Frame Material: Aluminium Alloy Wheel Size: 700c (622) Fork Material: Alloy/Carbon Model Year: 2012 Unisex Built with double butted aluminium, and carbon forks, the Cross bike comes fitted with Shimano 105 components, a cyclocross specific FSA Omega chainset (48x34 chainrings) and Tektro cantilever brakes. A pair of Shimano RS00 wheels wrapped with a pair of Maxxis Larsen MiMo 700x35c cross tyres provide the strength and grip when ploughing through the mud, or racing over the grass tracks. WARP products (handlebars, stem, and seat post) are fitted and help keep the price low as possible thanks to these products being built inhouse. All the cable routing is external and runs along the top tube so staying away from mud etc and also allowing a more comfortable carrying position whilst on the shoulder.

Yeah it looks nice, but I'm worried about the drop bars... I could change them, of course but then I'd loose the price advantage.

 

EDIT : And on the pictures it features ritchey stem and seatpost whereas the spec list only mentions warp components...
