I am building a brand new commuter/tourer from the ground up and need about 1500-1600 to do that. I have my specialized stumpjumper 29er that is barely a year old and my Surly LHT that is just shy over 2 years old.
These are the specs for the stumpjumper and the specs for the LHT can be found in surly's 2010 catalogue
Both bikes are in excellent condition. I treat them very well, the Stumpjumper I bought on a whim because a bunch of my friends rode mountain bikes. But I never got into the sport. I am much more of a roadie. The LHT I bought for commuting and potentially touring. I special ordered the bike and having rode it for two years I realize I dont like the 26 inch wheels, rim brakes, or the geometry.
Here is an album with pictures of both. I bought the stumpy for 2000 brand new and am hoping to get between 1400-1600 for it. I bought the LHT brand new for 1250 + accessories (Jandd racks) and hoping to get 750-800 for it.
Am I hoping for too much? I havent had very many offers yet at all.
