    How much is a new frame worth? It was built up but not ridden more than a mile.

    I'd say $150 max being you can buy a 2008 complete bike for less than $450

    I was offered $40 buy a guy because he ther is an '07 on CL that has been ridden "4 or 5 times". I don't even remember what I paid for it. I don't really need it and I need to clear out my stash for the sake of room and my sanity, but I don't want to short myself.

    The Avalanche frames are pretty damn good. They are nice and stiff, light, tough as nails, they also have shorter than average top tube lengths which make them wicked bikes for tight technical trails.

    On my 2003 I ran a Reba Air U-Turn which went from 80mm-115mm. The bike is a good handler at 100mm, around 80 it handles fast, at 115 it was on the slow side. My '08 has a 100mm fork, I'd say go for 100mm, they seem to handle best with that IMO.
