    What would you pay for a...

    1998 Seven Sola with a Rock Shox Bomber fork, WTB Grease Guard Hubs and mostly XTR components except for the XT Hubs. There's one up on Craigslist right now, and I'm not sure how much a 10 year old, $5000, titanium bike would be worth after 10 years -- especially when factoring newish parts.

    Here's the listing: http://eugene.craigslist.org/bik/811531801.html

    Ten year old used parts? The Marzocchi fork is newer since it has an integrated arch/lowers. In fact the fork is a '04 as I see on the pics. Probably a mix of parts is my guess. From the pics I'm gonna guess this bike and especially the components are well used.

    What to pay depends a lot on what you plan to do with this bike (looks set up as a cross bike) and the actual condition of the parts. Frankly, if it were me, I could see it mostly for the value of the frame itself, not much for the components.

    My opinion of value: $500-$600 tops.

    Edit: Looking at the pics again.......man, that pup looks beat. Maybe even less.

    Yeah, they don't make the Rock Shox Bomber anymore.....wait, there's no such thing as a Rock Shox Bomber.

    All in fun, the moniker was the OP's, not the CL listing.

    Definately wouldn't have paid $5000 in 1998.

    It's funny what people think things were worth new back in the day. Nobody with half a brain would pay MSRP for anything.
