    Who knows? What the market will bare. Blah blah blah blah blah blah.
    Here's a number: $1800.
    High-end bikes should resell for a little bit more than EP pricing.
    EP price is 20% less than wholesale. Wholesale price is determined by
    your shop's commitment to the brand. The more they buy, the cheaper
    the wholesale price. It's really no different than dealing drugs.

    I would check Ebay and mark a few, see what they go for.

    It's worth crap to me, but then I'm no Special Ed fan. Speaking of Special Ed and epic, did you see their latest lawsuit? Apparently they own the phrase epic if it's got anything to do with cycling as f*cked up as that sounds....but they are f*cked up, so I guess it makes sense.

    resale is not very good on bikes. what did they go for new? maybe it would be worth 1/3 - 1/2 the original price.

    the ebay suggestion above is a great idea. see what they go for.
