Help with pricing Trek MB for Craigslist

Hi,

I have a used MB that I'd like to sell on Craig's List, but don't know have any idea what it's worth. A friend who built it for me told me it was very expensive at the time, but since it was a gift I don't know the actual cost. It's about 10 years old, rarely ridden, and has some higher-end upgrades (at least, I think so). I've searched on-line for an idea of what to charge, but I don't know enough about mountain biking to understand. Here's its inventory:
  • Trek 990 mountain bike OX COMP III Ultralight tri-butted cro-moly Singletrack ZX series. Charcoal grey in color.
  • Avid SD-2.0 brake handles
  • Shimano Deore XT brakes
  • Shimano Deore XT pedals
  • Shimano Deore XT gears
  • Race 5 degrees 2014 T6 handle
  • Manitou cartridge answer SX Mach 5 shocks
  • Trico Sports padded seat
  • Ahead Set Dia-Compe stem (part #57087)
  • Ritchey seat post
  • Tires: Ritchey SpeedMax 2.0 World Championship Series Kevlar, special low density compound 127TP1
  • Swami Matrix 26" rims
  • Blackburn map-1 pump (mounted to bike)
  • Water holder mounted to bike
Any help pricing this would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance,

Veruka

Cleaned up your parts spec to make it easier to understand. Feel free to correct any lies I may have included. Ask as much as you want, but I think you'll get $350 at best. Ask $400 and see if you get lucky...
