The Right Price?

I have this bike and I don't know what to sell it for. My brother gave it to me but I don't know what he paid. The Raleigh web site says it sells for $800 - $1100, but that's all I know about the pricing. I love the bike but I don't ride trails or anything.

It is in great condition. It doesn't look like it was even taken off the asphalt. I saw my brother ride it very little.

I was thinking $500....but is that too much?

I Appreciate any opinions! I just don't wanna price it wrong and look greedy, or be a sucker and go too low.



Model: Raleigh XXIX
Size: Medium

All stock.

Look to see what they are selling for on ebay. Or post it on craigslist for what ever you think its worth, if your to high, you will get no response or tons of negative emails, then keep lowering the price till it sells.

Tons of negative emails...haha true that. There's a new one on Ebay for $399 with 1 bid, but it has 2 days left. Anyone else wanna throw their hat in the ring? I'd really appreciate it.
