    Possibly selling my bike...

    ...and got no idea about valuation .

    Product page for the bike, which is all OEM, except the 'mystery horn' has been removed, the grips have been upgraded to Ergon's, and it has been accessorized with a kickstand, rear rack, bottle cage(s), bar ends, and I think the seat wedge, inner tube, and cheap mini-pump will go with it. The handlebar has some scuff marks from when I used some hose clamps to secure a flashlight, but that should be easily 'fixed' by moving the cheap Schwinn computer to cover it.

    Depending on the outcome of a looming appointment with the Opthamologist, I may not be replacing it . If I'm not cleared, the the Townie baskets, the 4D Toplight, and the two PBSF clones will go with it. I'm keeping the Park mt-1 tool and the NR Cherrybomb no matter what.

    that was a $400 bike 6-7 years ago according to bikepedia. if its in perfect condition, maybe half that for resale value. and if its beat up but functional, as low as $100. this is heavily dependent on the market for used bikes in your area.

    Yeah, I was thinking $200 for the whole ball of wax would be a good asking price, given the price of something comparable costs more than twice that retail now and that's before the accessories.

    The LBS where I bought the bike also does consignments. Depending on the fees (or if they would even be interested), I think I'd go that route than have to hassle with CL.

    The Smoke is a great city bike. Too bad you have to sell it. More importantly, too bad I don't like in OK so I can buy it off you.

    Thank you. It is a decent bike to be sure, but if I had a better understanding of a proper 'fit', I probably would have passed on it- it is a tad too big (22" frame) for me to be comfortable on, but not to the point where it can't be ridden.

    IIRC, I got it for 30% off list. It was NOS in '08 and bought during an anniversary sale. It basically came down to this or the Smoke 2-9 model, but the shop owner knew my financial picture and suggested the one I ended up with based solely on the standover. The money I saved went to placating my wife for not buying from a Big Box store

    Lets be more positive, maybe a new bike could be in order here.
