I bought this, and it's too small for me. It's a big 'ol frame, but I'm still too tall. Red 1986 Timber Comp, XT pedals, cassette, hubs, derailleurs, brakes, and shifters. Magura levers (made in west germany:thumb:) and ritchey force stem. suntour xc seatpost and turbo saddle. paint is 8.5/10, and decals are all good. tange prestige fillet brazed. "handmade by tom ritchey" on the seat tube. What's a good price to sell it for?

Just how tall are you?!? On value, I have no clue. Not going the ebay route? I think for something like a Ritchey, only an auction can determine its market value. But, man, that fillet brazing is sweet.
Or maybe try emailing this guy about his Ritchey frame. This place has an amazing collection, but his asking prices are pretty high. So ask what he wants for his Ritchey and then maybe deduct 25% and add the component value.
