Thinking of selling my bike...

... to fund whatever sweet bike I get this summer. I'm not going to sell it until I already have
a new bike, but it'd be cool to know about how much I could get for it, for planning purposes
and whatnot.

Here's the rundown:

Frame: Fisher '98 (?) Kaitai hardtail

Fork: Marzocchi Z2 Atom Bomb '98

Headset: Chris King right now, but I'll probably replace it with a cane creek or something and put
the CK on my new bike

Stem, Seatpost: Thomson. Depending on sizes, these might migrate too.

Bars: Easton Monkeylite XC Carbon, also moving, so figure a lightweight aluminum flatbar.

Drivetrain: All XT with the exception of LX crankset and SRAM chain, figure '00-01 model year

Wheels: XT Hubs, Mavic 517 front, Mavic 618 (slightly beefier XC rim, a little more expensive than
the 517s). Very new, less than 250 miles on 'em I'd say

Brakes: Avid Arch Rival 50 with new pad holders; SD9.0L levers (I think), Moonlight Custom Titanium
brake boosters

The bike is in pretty good condition. Fork has a few scratches, frame has a few paint chips and
scrapes (as you'd expect from a bike thats been used) and some cosmetic pieces of decal gone, and a
bit of scratching around the bottom bracket from chainsuck, but is otherwise pretty much flawless.

I figure I might be able to get $500-ish for it, and I'm trying to decide whether it'd be better to
keep it as a backup bike (which would be sweet), or sell it and get my new one a LOT sooner (500 bux
is a pretty big chunk of change to me!)

Thanks, as always.

Keep it, but dress it up a little differently. Since I suppose you're saving pannies for a race
bike, set this one way woodsy - Motoraptors, bashring, risers, etc... Or maybe as a single speed.
Whatever you choose to do with it, you won't regret having it around.

Cheers,

would be a nice addition - maybe both. But I'd still like to add an XR250 to the garage - oh
hell" Thorne

Hey Jon isn't that the fork from JD, are you turning your back on the bomberhood? Did you get his
permission to turn his gift to you? I mean how could you forsake him so......

If you keep it, only keep it as long as you can still get 500 bucks out of
it.

Fork is Carla's old Z2 with JD's old Z1 steerer tube.

And I'm now sponsored by Marzocchi, so the new bike will have a brand spanking new
Marathon SL on it.

Things that say "Fisher" and "Marzocchi" on them go for way too much money on Ebay, which you
probably know from your Titus experience...spray the dirt off, post an auction, and make $750 if you
leave the headset, fork, brakes, and drivetrain on it.

Or, ship it to me for $19.95. You know, since you're sponsored and everything, how much money do
you need? :)

Poor starving college student, and I only have enough ramen and annie's mac and cheese (only the
best!) to last another couple weeks ;)

Plus, we're not fully sponsored, and its not just me, its the team. I'm nowhere near fast enough to
get my own sponsors!
