    Considering selling my MTB

    I haven't ridden the thing in ages and, at this point, I don't think I'm likely to. So I'm seriously considering it. Late 90's vintage Fisher Joshua FS upgraded to all XT but for the rear hub (LX). Not sure what to ask for it, but it'll be local, which is why it's posted here. Not a lot of miles on it (less than 3000) and it's really in excellent shape. Suggestions as to worth?

    Thanks.

    Put it up for bid on ebay and you'll find out!

    Actually, I won't. I'll find out what the bottom feeders that use e-bay are willing to pay for it. There's a distinct difference.

    I don't think you'd be able to get much for it... $300 maybe because of the XT parts.
    The single pivot monolithic swing-arm design is pretty dated. If it's your only MTB,
    you'll regret not having one next time the itch for some single track hits.

    If want top dollar, consider parting it out.

    Saying it's a dated design is being very nice. I'd be surprised if it went for $300 but sometimes you never know what someone on ebay/craigslist might pay for something...

    If that's the case, it's not worth the effort of selling. Thanks for the feedback.
