keep or sell?

So I just ordered some ladybird gp cans......but now I'm not sure if I should keep or sell my carbon Sato Banzai cans. What do you guys think? Cans have no damage and just some UV fading on the carbon.

Sell them!

in the end, it's up to you...
there will be plenty of guys here who will want the sato...
but then again, they are not making them anymore, so...
the ones that are around are getting more and more rare...

I'd sell them, and get another set of Ladybirds

Do you take it to the track? Cans are out there ready to meet the pavement (or kitty litter) if you go down.

I have a few sets of slip ons... it's good to have a replacement handy if needed!

Thanks

no i dont ride track.... yet. I am wanting to start but i am also looking for a less expensive to repair bike to ride the first few season so i dont tear up my RC. Depending on how much i like the ladybirds i had thought about using the satos to offset the cost of another set. However i would deff look for a cheaper set to set back in case i ever track it in addition to the 2nd set

I'd keep them. But I tend to keep everything. The money you will get probably won't be worth it. If you ever sell the slip ons, it will probably be easier to sell them with the regular cans or give the option of the ladybirds.

Keep them, you'll regret letting them go.

guess i should have added... i've already got a set of satos... but they are Titanium
and, no, I'm not selling them ...
But i've had bad experience with 2 different Carbon Fiber sets, and wouldn't hesitate to upgrade to a more durable material.

Thanks

I honestly don't even know what just the cans are worth. I will be 100% at end of month when my ladybirds get here if I'm selling them, but am open to offers now in case I do

70 degrees in the morning? Way too warm. It was 7 degrees in my backyard this morning.


Hey, don't sell any parts unless you need to buy food or something.

Lemme know if you're ready to sell. I'd like to have a spare set of carbon cans for spares.
