    Taking apart my bike, help!!!

    So i have a trek liquid 65, 2005 model, and i am wanting to swap out all my components on to a new frame thats got a little more travel and a little smaller. Is it possible for me, a novice in bike maintenance, to take apart everything down to the frame so i can sell the frame?

    you need a special tool to remove the bottom bracket, and the fork crown race. also the headset, but it's pretty common to just sell the headset with the old frame and get a new one. everything else is allen keys.

    no idea how much an lbs would charge, but it'll be a fair amount, as it's not a quick process.
