Need some help on Sale Price

I'm helping a friend sell her former husbands mountain bike. I'll admit, I know nothing about mountain bikes. That said I know this bike is worth some cash being titanium and whatnot.

It's a Seven Verve. I don't know what year but I can probably find that out if you think it's a big deal. Pics:



a bunch more pics
Here

And a few specifics:

18" Seven Verve Mountain Bike
Straight gauge titanium
Fox Float 100mm fork (has stable patform valve)
XTR drivetrain w/ Cannondale Pro double crank (rare & badass!)
Paul love levers w/ Hayes Mechanical disc brakes
Mavic UST wheels
WTB Weirwolf tires

What's a fair price range for this bike?

Anywhere between $900 and $1500. I know that doesn't seem like much, but used bikes lose a lot of initial value. That sucks. Craig's List seems to do a lot better to keep selling price higher than Ebay.

I'd say 2000$. I have a Seven ti bike myself, so you might want to say I'm biased but I don't think so, as I've been checking out Seven bikes on Ebay etc. Having said that, the previous poster is correct that depreciation on bikes, even high end bikes, is shockingly high.

But if you part it out -- i.e., dismantle the bike (more or less dismantle I mean) -- and sell the parts/components individually, you should be able to get more. Those are very impressive components. That's just a lot of work and you'd probably have to pay someone who has the tools to take everything off. And it's a hassle.
