    How much is a 06' Rush worth?

    Hey Guys, I had this posted in the general discussion forum before I realized there was a cannondale specific area.


    My question is that I have a bike that I might be able to trade something for and was wondering how much its worth. Any information you great people could give me about the bike would be great, as I don't know much (I'm a newbie to MTB).

    Its a 2006 (I think?) Cannondale Rush-small frame size. Here are some of the features:

    (1/2) Cannondale rush small
    Shocks. Manitou R-7 front. Manitou radium platform plus. Rear
    Crank truvativ iso flow
    Shift and deraler sram x-7
    Speed seat
    Schwin speedometer
    Rims black eye
    Hubs shimano
    Disc brakes front and back

    I've got a picture that I will post as soon as my post count is high enough

    Thanks!

    $650 to $750. That's my guess. Depends on condition of bike and amount of wear on components.
    My name is Chris and I ride a Prophet 650b with a Lefty.

    Good to hear. I would have about $375 in it. I want to keep and ride it, but I'm a little worried. It's a small frame size and I'm 6'2''-6'3''.

    I'd say check it out in person first.
    I recently purchased a 2011 Scalpel after only having seen pictures, and got royally screwed. I ended up putting an extra $1000 into it.

    Yeah I'll be checking it out in person. THe trade is actually for my ps3 (which I never play) and $175. If the bike has been barely ridden (like he says it has been), I think it's a great deal.

    At your height, a small frame will not be very comfortable to ride. I'm 5'8" on a medium Prophet.

    For someone your size you'd be making a big mistake buying that bike.. even if you got it for free it will never feel right.. now matter how high the saddle goes or how long a stem you put on it..

    You may get away with a medium but I reckon your probably more suited to a large frame..

    forgot the size chart

    Found this sizing chart. Is the horizontal top tube on a small really 22.6''? I think the trek I ride now is 21'', is that right?

    Forget it. At your Height you need a Large. The only value in that bike to you is what you can sell it for. Hard to price it without seeing it. If its in good condition. (All suspension holding air and good seals, chain not stretched out, etc. I bet it will sell for 600 on ebay.
