Shinola Bixby Detroit bicycle

Posted on
  • Hi,
    I have a bike I am wondering how much it's worth.
    Specs

    700c wheels

    Front hub Shimano Deore

    Rear hub shimano Nexus Inter 3 silent clutch- hub gears-3 gears

    Rims- Sunrims CR18

    Disc brakes- Shimano BR-R517

    It has a brand new chain fitted.

    This is a website where you can find a review and history of the bike.

  • 200-300 ish

  • Does it come with the plants?

  • I thought it's worth more. It's in near mint condition.

  • It's not really a review is it. No idea what this is worth but it's not really the kind of thing that sells here.

  • I would say you could get 4-500. looks pretty well made, doubt here is the place to sell though.

  • To justify my valuation- It’s a handsome bike, but the American cruiser style isn’t a big seller over here. You can determine a bikes value in two ways - the spec of the parts and/or the cachet of the brand. Shinola make watches - so not exactly a desirable bike brand. The components are decent, but low-end.

    Find someone who really likes the bike and the style and maybe you’ll get £400 .. but I wouldn’t allow the hugely over-inflated RRP to cloud your idea of it’s actual value.

    I see you have it listed on eBay for £850 already

  • Yeah, it's been advertised on ebay for a while, but not much interest. I guess I will need to lower the price.

  • £200/300 is a bit harsh. For anyone familiar with Shinola, its a funky Detroit brand, (I think their products are actually all made in Detroit? Which is something). I had a look around a Shinola store in Toronto a few years ago when they were pushing their bikes a bit more. Seemed like nice products, expensive for what they were for sure, but you get the cache of made in America.

    As ever you need to find the 'right buyer' for interesting products like these. I'd be looking for £500/600 IMO.
