Never worth it to sell a bike... is this her only bike? Is she ever ever going to want to ride again for any reason?

The value in selling it is just not there unless it is some collectable ride.

Put it in storage... someday she will say "let's go for a ride..." and there it is... be it a park ride or whatever...

Never worth it to sell a bike
That's what's got me now. I bought an expensive bike and rode it for about a year but never really enjoyed it. I later bought another frame on ebay to build and this one fits me great. Turns out my $$$ bike is way too big for me, I don't know why the bike shop insisted that it was my size, I think it would fit somebody who's a foot taller than me nicely but there's not too many 7' tall people looking for a bike. If I do sell it I'll probably lose half of what I paid for it.

selling bikes on ebay seems like a lost cause ebay has gone so far down hill. i loved ebay when it was like a huge online garage sale. but now its a bunch of retailers making just like any other retail site.
