1999 Cannondale Silk Path 300 Mixte, what to do with it?

I have a 1999 Cannondale Silk Path 300 Mixte that I had bought for my sister that she had never really got a chance to ride. She had a stroke shortly after I given it to her but the Doctor said NO to any riding as he was afraid she might bleed had she fallen as she was then on blood thinners.

Sad thing is the bike has maybe 25 miles on it, it is still brand new. Just a little dusty from hanging up in the garage. It has since been given to my wife in hopes I could get her to try riding but I really don't think that is going to happen.

So at this point I am at a quandary as to what to do with it. Should I try and find a different frame for it to transfer all the components, perhaps a men's hybrid frame, cyclecross frame? I am sure I would not get much for it if I sold it even though it is basically brand new.

Does anyone have an idea what it might be worth if I tried to sell it? I believe it sold for around $400-500 new.

Thanks for any suggestions.

Here's a one year older bike on bicyclebluebook.com.

1998 Cannondale Silk Path 300 Mixte - New and Used Bike Value

So yours may be worth $250 in like new condition, although if you're in a hot bike market it may be worth more.

For what it's worth, if it were me, I'd try to find someone to give it to who would ride it.

If it looks like Tpcorr's link, it is not a mixte, but a woman's step thru frame. Nevertheless, a clean Cannondale Hybrid is worth a fair amount. i recently sold a minty late 1990's H300 men's hybrid for $350, with Shimano Acera components. A woman's Cannondale would not be worth any less.

But I see you are not anywhwere near a metro area, so be prepared to sell for substantially less. Maybe you have a friend in Chicago who can help sell it or put it up on ebay?

BTW, bicycle blue book values are very inaccurate IMHO.
