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!

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.

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.
