    Fair Price...

    Thinking of selling my 2007 Motobecane Fantom Elite DS. Paid 1295 for it and it's very lightly used...only major scratch is on the gear indicators on top of the shifters.

    I'm thinking 6-700?

    Here are the specs...

    Thoughts?

    My thought
    put it on ebay on 10-day auction and you will get way over $600
    and depending on your rating and ad wording you might get over what you paid
    Sounds odd; but it happens

    remember; I bike with that spec can easily cost $2000 in a store or even more with tax
    so your buyer is getting a deal at anything under $1200

    The only reason I'm selling it is that I'm spoiled and a friend of mine started making custom frames. He made me a really sweet singlespeed 29er and for better or worse the motobecane has been sitting in the basement untouched and without pedals since I got the new one.

    The bike fits fine and rides great. I've just been really enjoying the new bike and figure somebody should be riding the other one...
