Opinions on fair asking price appreciated.
I have a 2004 Stumpjumper M4 frame just about exactly like this one:
2004 Specialized Stumpjumper - BikePedia
Almost looks like polished alu, called "dream" color I guess but is a real nice silver.
New tires, recent tune up, I had the Fox suspension Fork professionally overhauled by a place in the Carolinas last year at a cost of around $200 if I recall.
Needs nothing. Carbon bars.
I hardly ever ride it and am thinking of listing it on Craigs. Obviously I'd like to get as much as I can but I'd like to be fair as well. I know little about MTBs so hoping maybe someone would opine on what a fair price for a sweet old bike like this would be. I'd give it an 8-9/10 condition wise, not torn up at all, only a few minor scratches. Pretty amazing shape, actually.
Thanks for advice. If it's not worth anything, maybe I'll just keep it hanging in the garage, but I have the hots for a Vaya or AWOL, so it would be nice to have some coin toward that.

Here is a handy site that gives a general idea.
2004 Specialized Stumpjumper - New and Used Bike Value
I'd list it for $300, take $250 or so. What hurts you is that most of it is older tech...80mm travel fork, rim brakes, etc. If I were you and didn't have to sell it, I'd just make it in to a nice neighborhood cruiser with some nice hybrid tires and a comfortable seat.
I did that with an old steel hardtail...keeps my FS off the streets, but gives me something to ride around with my wife.
