Divorce Italian Style? - Price Polizia put in your .02 Lira
I'm thinking about selling my Colnago Dream HP and going back to a steel bike.
The pictures of the bike in the link above are the before photos. The photos below show the bike in its current configuration with the following component mix.
55cm Colnago Dream frameset with carbon rear triangle (color NL10)
It's a traditional level top tube frame & the TT is 54.5cm
Colnago Force carbon fork
Deda Newton bars (44cm) w/ Lizard Skins bar tape
Deda Zero 100 stem (90mm)
Record carbon 10 speed shifter/brake levers
Record carbon cranks (172.5mm 53/39)
Record 10 speed cassette (12-25)
Record carbon rear derailleur
Record front derailleur
Record carbon seatpost
Colnago Hoskar saddle
Capagnolo Eurus wheelset
New Michelin Pro Race 3 tires
Elite carbon bottle cages
Since I keep falling off my mountain bike and breaking myself, the bike only has seen very little use and it had 0 miles when I bought it. It was originally purchased by a South Beach celebrity at Due & Due in Cortina, Italy. The original owner kept the bike in box for a couple years and never rode it. He originally paid $4500 Euros ($5800 dollars) for the bike.
Besides Road Bike Review, maybe ebay and obviously TGR, where are best sites to list it for sale?
What's it worth?
Don’t race. Leave that to the scorchers.

Velocipede Salon and the Serotta forums would be good places to sell, but I am unaware of their "new member" policies.

I think you'd get more for it parted out (Gasp!). The thing that's holding you back is the fact that it's an alu frame. Unless you're a collector, most people want full carbon. On the other hand, every component of that record group will fetch really good money as will the wheels. Might be a pain to do it, but if you're looking for maximum dollars, parting is the way to go. If not, I'm thinking around $2K for the whole thing.
Really pretty bike btw.

At first glance in the photos I thought the bike had platform pedals on it! LOL.Be careful about buying snowboard goggles for skiing. Snowboard goggles come in right eye and left eye (for goofy-footers) dominant models. This can make it hard to see correctly when skiing because you are facing straight down the hill, not sideways.

Strip the whole kit off that rig and sell the frame on ebay, including the cranks.
The Campy square taper BB sucks. (4000 miles max) Now all you can get to replace it is a chorus. Get a nice modern carbon frame and a Campy ultra-torque crank and you will be headed in the right direction.
Spam- I have an s-works Tarmax SL-2 on consignment in the shop for $850, perfect shape. 54.8 top tube. red/ black

If you were to do this 'Divorce Italian Style' then you would have to do away with the bike without anyone being the wiser. Why not just get rid of the frame and put the build kit on a new steel rig?
PS Am I just that out of road riding to not know the new gear or are those bottle cages upside down?

Nice rig. Italian beauty with fitting components. Someone somewhere wants that bike complete. It would be a shame to part it out since the whole thing is sooo Italian. Worth $2500+ to the right person, if it is in very good condition. Probably do pretty similarly with parting it out. Too bad it isn't steel...
frame/fork ~ $1000
groupset (cranks/bb/levers/brakes/chain/derailleurs/cassette) ~ $700
wheelset ~ $500
other components ~ $300The greatest effort is not concerned with results.
