Sell Stock Fork (Dart 1) and buy a nicer one?
This is just an idea I'm toying around with, but how much could I sell a Rock Shox
Dart 1 100mm with preload adjust for? Mileage is around 80 (basically new - came
stock with Trek 6000). I think it is a 100 dollar fork, so I was thinking selling it for
80 dollars would give the buyer an ok deal.
Then, what is a better fork that would be selling for under 300 dollars? I like the
feel of air suspension more so than coil springs because of my weight and how
responsive and sensitive it is to smaller bumps (I test rode a bike with a Fox F29 air
and WOW that was smooth (my LBS didn't really like the fact that I test rode it without
the intention to buy till I got the 6000
). Plus, I'm starting XC.
This is just postulation
