I've been trying to sell my 2011 Fuji Absolute 3.0 for a couple of weeks now, but I can't quite seem to figure out what it's actual market value is.
I paid $550 for it in April. Put bar ends on it, it has a new rear tube, lights, and it's been tuned up three times at the shop. It has a faulty front shifter that will need to be replaced after a while, but it still works for now. The paint is not in perfect shape, but it's not horrible. I was originally asking $425, but have dropped the price down to $300 and still no bites. Does a hybrid that has less than 200 miles on it lose 50% of its value?
Also, does anybody have any tips on how to sell used bikes? Should I lower the seat, take the barends off, take the rack off?
Thanks for any advice.
