    Selling a bike.

    T'is a long time since I've posted here (mainly because I've enjoyed a couple of years good riding with no problems).

    I'm currently looking at buying a new bike (An Orange Crush suits my needs exactly), but I can't justify having two bikes. More so when the new one will make the old one redunant. So I'm going to sell my Giant AC.... which does pain me as I put it togther myself, but I've no idea who much to ask for it.

    I wonder if anyone can help?

    The frame is a 2003 Team Edition Frame (mainly black with all the sponsor logos on) which I brought 2nd hand for 230 (circa $460). The shock is a pre-propedal design.

    The forks are some 2003 Sherman DC Double crown 150mm forks. I paid 130 (circa $260) for them (again 2nd hand) and replaced the oil in them a year ago.

    I've never had a problem with either.

    The rest of the parts are a mix and match of parts that I've brough over time. Ranging from a brand new Deore Crankset and BB to an old ripped and torn saddle.

    I'm thinking of asking for 300 (circa $600) for the bike. Is this too much or too less? There are some parts I've brought recently that I will swap back, but for what the bike is it seems a fair price.
    The views expressed above are badly thought out and hastley typed. Any spelling or gramatical mistakes, are, their to annoy.

    Your bike is worth whatever someone is willing to pay you for it. Put it on Ebay with a reserve set to the minimum you would take and not feel awful about and let it go.

    You may want to clean it up well and replace a few obviously worn parts like the saddle. It will probably help you get a lot more for it.

    Hello mate..

    Split the bike, the parts are normally worth more than the whole bike... Depending on the condition of the frame (I have one too) i bought mine last year with the obvious scratches for 200 so they still sell really well. have a look at www.southerndownhill.com and split it there, you'll have no problems shifting the bits in the classifieds.
