Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

soma rush...how much to sell for?

I have my first fixed gear build i'm looking to sell and there's a local bike-swap coming up this weekend. I'm horrible at pricing things for sale so just looking for a little advice what some of you think this should run..

Soma Rush (black) 53cm frame w/ generic ebay chrome road fork
Mavic CXP-22 laced to formula flip-flop hubset w/ Conti Ultra gatorskins
Surly 17t 1/8" cog, KMC chain, Sugino RD 48t crankset, Sugino cartridge BB
Kalloy seatpost, Serfas Arias saddle
Nitto Pearl 90mm stem, Nitto B-123 39cm bars
Tektro R556 front brake w/ RL721 right lever
I'll probably include some generic pedals w/ nylon straps

The whole bike is less than a year old and is in great shape overall. A few normal nicks here and there, no dents. I can post photos if that helps...but just looking for a ballpark price to ask.

Thanks ya'll!

i'd say (i'm being serious) to price it as $525 and bargain from there, $450-75 would be a fair price to sell.

thanks corter. i think i'll ask $500 just to bait the hook a bit and be a little flexible on the price.
