    Just curious. There seems to be quite a few questions on the value of bikes lately, and if gas goes up it could create even more.

    Is there a book for bikes, like there is for cars that can give you an average value for a used bike???

    Wife would probably cringe if I bought more, but at least it isn't more camera gear that cost more.

    There isn't one that I'm aware of, other than a site for tandems I recall from a few years ago. Prices vary by region - in Oregon, any old bike with half-decent components commands a much higher premium. In other parts of the country, guys are pulling the same bikes out of dumpsters.

    That's a good idea. I would like to have a standard so I know what to offer if I ever buy another bike second hand.

    This is really interesting to read about beta testing. This book will be quite interesting for bike riders.

    Thanks, JT. I even found my bike which appears to be a few years older than I thought. No value was displayed, though.
