    Wow. Top shelf build for sure. Really nice. Hope you get what your asking for it.

    It'd cost every bit of that to build it even at bro deal prices That's a good price for that build.

    I can't believe it's not sold already. Sure, that's a lot of cash for most people to pull together, but that is an amazing build and worth the asking price. Makes me wish I didn't have one already so I could justify buying yours.

    That bike is awesome! I know it's a pain to deal with selling multiple parts, but I think you will have to part it out to get close to what you want for it, but you could get lucky. Good luck on the sale.

    I may have to do that. I just figured if somebody is looking to buy a complete they could buy mine for less with way better parts on it

    do you not use ebay? its the quickest way to get your money back. 5 days since you posted this, you could have sold the whole lot, part by part, each on a 5 day auction.

    if i was in need of cash, id have sold the 'highest ticket item which has the least loss' (difference from what you paid for it). then keep doing this until you have the amount you need. keep the rest in a box and rebuild them later when youve got money enough to rebuild it (thats if you plan to have another bike again).

    I'm sad to see such a beautiful build torn apart but frenchcr has a good idea. You could probably get the $6800 and have some parts left over; because everything on that bike is in high demand. Plus a lot of those components have been in short supply for quite some time (the Enve stuff and the Lev) so they should be pretty hot items.

    I think you could probably sell the stuff on PB pretty quick since it's the time of year when people have the upgrade itch; but ebay can be a good option too.

    Ebay advice from a non-ebay seller (i.e. half-arsed advice): If you go with ebay, set the lowest price you are willing to take as your starting price (setting a reserve price costs money I believe). Without your min price set high enough (or setting a reserve price), auction snipers will make your item sell for much less than you want. (I offered a guy $150 for a shock he was selling on MTBR; and he didn't respond. I saw he was selling it on ebay and I sniped his shock from ebay for ~$125.)

    Good luck.

    The only problem i see is the price , im not saying its not a good price but how many people drop $6800 on a bike? Usually when someone spends money like this ist being built from the ground up which most of us all have. So that being said maybe some people would build it up differently etc? who knows.. We are a small minority i would have to say that drop 7-10K on a bike.

    So personally i would part it out to be honest with you , and for the price you mentioned for the wheelset i feel it would sell right away..

    I've always had much better luck selling stuff parted out. But it really depends on if you want to go to that much trouble and if you are willing to sit on some parts to hold off getting your real price.

    Ebay is good, but once you factor in all the fees between them, paypal, and shipping, you usually have to get a good chunk more than whatyou reallly want so you can break even.

    Yeah I think I'm gonna start posting up parts on pinkbike. I'd rather not go with eBay because after PayPal fees eBay takes a hefty chunk then to.

    Nice build. As a guy who flips at least one of his bikes every season, the used hi-end market is a tough one for complete bikes.

    Regardless of how nice it is, it is a used bike. In reality, at that price point, a smart shopper can piece together a comparable build in the same price range, with mostly new parts.

    It's a pain, but parting it out is the best way to get the most $ back.
