Well I just purchased a new 2006 Jamis Dakar Sport frame off the MTBR classifieds. This frame is an upgrade to my 1998 Jamis Dakar Expert. Overall I am spending $600 to upgrade the frame, wheels and brakes. Most of the other parts were upgraded last year.
Now I spent $80 on a few parts and I now have built my 1998 Jamis Dakar back to the point it was before I started all my upgrading. I would like to recoup some of the money I spent on the new ride, but it would be nice to have a backup XC bike for friends and such.
So the question is should I sell it or keep it, and if I sell it how much should I expect? I was thinking it should worth around $500, but who wants a 1998 frame thats not disc compatible.
