    Sampson Ti Hardtail

    I'm selling my trusty 21" Sampson Ti Frameset. This was the last one Eric made and he told me he made less than 500 of them during the 90's when he made MTB's. Does anyone know what I should ask for it? TIA

    Probably around $350

    Unless you can find someone in dire need of a Sampson frame I dont think you'll get much for it. There are tons of Ti framse out there and people tend to gravitate towards proven frames they've heard of.

    This bike is killer so I always wondered why they didn't sell more of them. Sampson is well known for their high end road bikes and that is where their focus seems to be. I guess that's where the big $$$ is nowadays.

    I think the Vail MTB's were most popular in the Denver area where Sampson's shop is located.

    If that's the case...try posting it on the Colorado Craigslist or try to offer it up to the roadie camp. They may be more interested in a 'rare' mountain frame made by their favorite road frame maker...
    After that, MTBR classifieds....eBay is almost always the safest bet.

    If someone here offered up a road bike made by C. Cunningham...the banks would be able to close for the day.

    Good luck!

    A google or yahoo search would have worked...

    Here's the 'bike' specific section as well:

    Posting there is free.
