Realistically, how could I SELL my '05 Specialized Hardrock Sport for?

I realized this bike is slightly too big for me in size XL frame... I'm 6'2" & probaby needed to go w/ a large. Anyways, I'm thinking of selling it for a hybrid bike since that's more the style of riding I would do. I've literally ridden this bike 5 times, so it is in mint condition. I want to sell it locally on craigslist I think..

I paid $330 for it...what would be a fair asking price that I could most likely get from it?

Personally, if I were to offer you a price I would ask for 100, but go up to 150. Since it is an '05, and probably not the disc model based off what you paid, you wont get near your original price. I'd put the $200 price tag on Craigslist, but be willing to negotiate depending on how anxious you are to be rid of it.

+1, Yup, that's what I'd put it on for. Around here, you wouldn't have to negotiate much, it would sell at close to asking within a few days at that price.
