    Taxman cometh: Have to remove a bike from the quiver. Which one would you sell?

    I did a preliminary tax return and unless there is some miracle or gross error (neither of which is likely), I'm going to owe a good chunk of my hard-earned money to Uncle Sam come this April.

    So... in order to help fund said chunk, I'm going to have to sell one of my bikes. The one that I keep will likely end up being my backup bike as I have a SC Highball that will be my main ride this year.

    Which one would you sell?

    About me:
    I'm 41, mostly doing smooth single track (XC type) riding. Race occasionally (beginner class) but not to be competitive and likely will never be.

    Details on the bikes:
    2008 Cannondale Rush 650b
    - Lefty
    - RaceFace Next Carbon Cranks
    -X7/X9 drivetrain
    -Juicy 7 brakes
    - Stan's Crest 650b wheelset
    - Spynergy 26" wheelset

    Notes: I love the Rush, I love the Lefty, and love the wheel size, but I should be able to fetch more for it. It would be nice to have a full-cushy bike around for really long weekend rides (which I will do once a month during the summer). It is slightly too big for me, but still fun to ride.

    2012 Kona Unit:
    - stock, but have Rockshock XC32 fork. Would come with both forks.
    - have geared dropouts

    Notes: It it just a basic bike but I do really enjoy me some single speeding. The bike fits like a glove and is fun. Not going to get very much for it. I think this would make a nice complimentary bike, but then I'd have two hardtails.


    If the Rush, do you sell it as a 650b, 26er, or both? I don't know how much marketability a 650b wheelset with a Cannondale Lefty hub will have on its own.

    I would sell the Unit - will be easier ti get it back one day. The RUSH has been discontinued and you might never find a bike that you like as much.

    But then I'd have to pay more taxes and then I'd have to sell two bikes.
