    $1200

    I don't know much about Felt bikes, but I buy a lot of bikes / frames on ebay. I probably average buying a new bike or frame every 4-6 months or so. Felts are supposedly decent FS bikes. Given the listed components and overall weight - $1200 or less would be a good deal.

    Considering retail on that bike is $2200, that would be a pretty nice deal.

    Given the bikes you own / have owned, I'm sure you understand that mountain bikes do not hold value very well. So, a one or two year old bike, even if it's new, loses a lot of it's value. It also depends on when you are selling. March is early season, and parts of the US still have snow / cold weather. So, your number of potential buyers / interested parties may be lower than if it were mid May. The final auction price will likely reflect this.

    Having said that, even if they eventual buyer pays $1500 for the Felt, he will still be getting a reasonable deal and will undoubtedly enjoy the bike. I just threw the $1200 out as what I thought a "good" deal would be. Just an opinion

    I agree that the $1000-1200 is pretty spot on.......I would not really spend more than that. I actually just sold one of these at the LBS I work for today brand new for $1450.

    $1200

    It sold for $1200 exactly. How's that for a lucky guess?
