I am selling my bike and need some help prcing it

I picked up this Mongoose a few years ago hoping to get into street riding. I learned that it required more work than I was willing to give. I rode the bike a few times then parked it in the basement and went back to riding my MTB. I would like to sell it but have no idea what a used bike like this should go for. I got it at a LBS before Wal*Mart started selling Mongoose. I think I have about $300 in the bike


here are a few pics

You are not going to get much for that.

Unless you can swindle someone that doesn't know anything.

I'll admit it, if you were local I'd buy it.

Thats what I like to hear. I guess if I can't get that I will just keep it in the garadge incase I decided to ride it again. It just seems so much harder to pull anything off on that bike than my MTB
