I haven't been following stuff like the Campy no name brakes, but I have noticed a big increase in what some stuff sells for lately. I need a few parts for a couple projects, like Campy SR rear derailers. Back in the fall, I remember decent used ones going for $50-75 with occasional ones higher. The last 4-5 I was watching all went for around $100. Cinelli 1r stems also seem to be roughly double what they used to be. And there's stuff like this http://ebay.com/<blah> ame=STRK:MEWA:IT&ih=017

Item 270212484214 in case the URL wont wrap right

$91 for a couple AX cages and a bottle? I'm happy for the seller, but if that's where prices are going to stay, my projects will be delayed a bit more than usual.

I'm really hoping this is just a seasonal thing with everyone looking for that last part or two, but I have a feeling it's not.

Take a look a this ebay auction that just ended:

130198480975

$1774.95 for what really amounts to a set of no-name Campy brakes. I know no-name brakes are rare and expensive, but the last set I saw on ebay went for ~$400.00 or so. Has anyone seem these brakes for anything near this amount? (I figured the other parts were worth $300 or so...)
