Value of my CX bike?

Im thinking about selling or partying my CX bike as Im low on funds and I want to convert to a one bike setup (possibly a quick 29er or maybe vintage touring bike). I have the specs listed in my signature. Anyone want to hazard a guess as to howmuch I could get for it? Everything is in great conditions except for the rear rim, which has a slight dent on the braking surface (can be felt while breaking but doesnt really affect how hard it breaks as it is only the back).

Would I be better selling it as a whole or parting out?

It's not really relevant to the forum and could be interpreted as spam-in-disguise.

The only thing I would consider was, if you had the Dura-Ace brakes lying around somewhere, to sell the gruppo as a complete set. Otherwise, I don't see anything worth parting out.

All together, I doubt you'd get more than $500 for it. I'd part it out and I'd think you'd get a lot more for the parts.

Maybe keep it and build a pit bike out of it later.
