    GT Fitness Series Nomad, how much is this bike worth?

    So I have this bike I've been wanted to sell, GT Fitness Series Nomad Women's bike, it has a few scratches. This guy says it goes for $390, but I saw one for 600. I understand it depends on where you live (I think) I live in the Washington DC. Area. So I want to know how much I could get out of this and how much it costs orginally.

    Here's a picture,

    I think, it looks the same as that bike but it's green. I think it is a 09'
    This guy wanted to buy it for $75! That's crazy low.

    1. Are you selling it with a listed price? If so, delete the crazy lowballers.

    2. If you are selling it with a make me an offer price, get used to the lowballers. You will see a lot more of them.

    Yeah I'm selling it for $450 with only a few sratches.

    Haha no doubt, I should. Maybe I should post a "make me an offer" ad and see what I can get out of it.

    An older comfort style bike is not going to have a lot of resale value. Loses most of it's value as soon as it leaves the shop. Next buyer probably gets no shop warranty, either, which is worth something to the average comfort bike user. Just down the road in RVA, if I tried to sell that bike for 150$, it would sit and sit and sit. $450 is way high, sorry.

    Yeah sorry, if the bike can be had new for $450 you will get nowhere NEAR that for it used. As noted, comfort bikes have little resale value. I'd say you're looking at maybe $100 for the bike.

    +1 if you don't have a price in your ad you'll get all kinds of offers. Ads without prices are annoying and not helpful to anyone.
