    Fair price for used Brompton M3L

    I'm moving in August and will no longer have a train commute, so I'm planning on selling my Brompton in the next month or two. I had a hard time finding other comparable listings, so I figured I'd ask what you all thought would be a reasonable selling price.

    It's pretty much a stock bike with some scrapes and scratches from everyday use, but in great mechanical shape. I'm planning on including the large Brompton touring bag and strap, luggage block, extended seatpost, and a Brooks B17 saddle w/pentaclip.

    Thoughts on a fair asking price? Do you think I'd be better off trying to sell the bag separately?

    Thanks!

    I donít know what I used Brompton is worth in the USA.

    What I would question is do you really need to sell? If you need the money, then fair enough.... if not why not just keep the bike? They donít take up any room and you never know when it might come in handy or you might just like to go out for a ride.

    Petrol (gas) is never going to go down in price and you may find the Brompton ideal for short trips around the neighbourhood..... or even take on vacation.

    The Brommie has served me well and I've thought about keeping it, but I just can't justify it. I'm planning to use the money to buy a dedicated commuter so I can save my cross bike for longer rides and/or nicer commuting days. Even if I do decide I need another folder down the line, I can just pick up a cheap used Dahon or something. The compact fold and durability of the Brompton won't be as important if I'm not taking it on the train 2x a day.
