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...

Thanks Mike...I've got a friend who is interested...but if he bails I'll probably end up putting it on ebay...
