    1995-96 Diamond Back WCF 6.0

    A Newbie Here,

    I have a Diamondback Welded Carbon Fiber (WCF) 6.0 Frame mountain bike with mostly Shimano hubs (STX Paralax), cassette (HG70), and dérailleur(STX). It has some Avenir (gooseneck, seatpost) parts as well as a Sugino crank with a sealed bottom bracket. Also, I have a Rock Shox Quadra 21r fork on the front.

    I know this is an old bike, but what is it worth in good condition?

    Cheers,
    Mountainwave

    That's not a common frame. Difficult to say, but I'll say this, the components don't add to the value. STX is a mid-level, common MTB group with no exceptional resale value. That Rock Shox is probably the only one that's not worth a whole lot. On the other hand, if it's a spring model, and if it's flexing correctly, but has a firm ride, then it doesn't need replacement. That's enough to help the sale of the bike. IF this where a steel or aluminum bike I'd say the value is somewhere around $150 or so ride ready, no repairs needed, good working condition. But a CF frame is hard to estimate. Certainly it's worth more than what I just said so I'm thinking somewhere around $250-$300, but I'm doing some educated guessing here.

    15 year old MTBs just don't have much value. In a decent market, you would be doing pretty good to get $200 for it. Serious MTB riders want the latest and greatest. Recreational riders want cheap. You are kind of in no man's land value wise.

    Hey Guys,

    I greatly appreciate the help. With technology changing, its amazing to know mountain bikes are so sophisticated and cool. I was amazed to see some selling for $3,000 at a local bike shop. I'm sure that is just touching the surface. Again, I greatly appreciate your input.

    Cheers,
