    Someone help me price my bike so I can sell it!!

    I have a 21" 2005 Gary Fisher Ziggurat. Only upgraded the brakes to a pair of magura marta sl brakes and the tires to irc mybro tubeless. It has only been raced a few times and being i am a former bike mechanic it has been very well taken care of. It only has some minor scratches from the chain getting caught between the chainrings and the frame and a missing lower limit on the derailleur (don't ask how it happened because i have no idea). I bought the bike for 1850 in march of 2005. Can a few give me a decent asking price to sell this bike at? Thanks!

    My response would have been something along the lines of: "Does your bike have computer controlled suspension? Then shut your piehole, this baby is from the future!"

    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    Half of original retail is a good starting point.

    $800. Chainsuck damage is not a good thing.

    But Ziggurat frames are awesome. One of my friends just bought one that Cameron Chambers had warrantied (well, it was a 29er painted like a Ziggurat.)

    Seems like maybe you weren't a very good mechanic.

    That's why he said former bike mechanic.

    How hard is it to replace a limit screw? Most folks that have been riding awhile have a boneyard of used(up) parts- I do. Or the LBS.
