No-one with half a brain will pay more than 100-150. Half the price for it new, then take off another bit. Especially if it has megarange stuff on it.

Matheprat and dj are correct. 50% usually. If you can get 80% of the price sell it. That is one buyer who doesn't know the industry at all

If he can, then yes, deffinately. He asked how much he "should" sell it for, then replied with "bullocks" when we told him. It is, however, deffinatly not worth that.

Especially from a company like that. Im hoping to get around 70% for my Bullit frame....asking about $700 to $750. I got 50% for my old complete bike, and was quite content.
