2007 Mongoose Otero Elite Value - Help!!!
I have an '07 mongoose otero elite that i bought 2 years ago. i love the bike, but it is time for a new one!
i am trying to figure out what it is worth so that I can sell it, and am wondering if you guys can help me value the bike.
the only original things on it are the frame, handlebars, saddle, front derailleur, and shifters.
i have upgraded to:
2009 RockShox Tora 318 Fork - 80-120 adjustable travel
2013 Avid Elixir 1 brakes
2013 Shimano Deore XT Rear Derailleur
2009 Sun Ringlé Gold Rims and hubs (can't remember the model but can look if needed)
Maxxis Swampthing and Hutchinson Barracuda tires
Shimano PD-M424 Pedals
RockShox Sid rear shock
Brand New Sram Cassette and Chain
All new cables
Hopefully someone out there knows a bit about it!
can't seem to upload an image now, i'll have to try again later.
hate to say it but it is worth less than the sum of the parts. A 7 year old bike is going to take a major price hit and the Mongoose name got dragged down years ago.
Blue book has it for $169
Listing Detail - Bicycle Blue Book
even though most of the parts are a nice upgrade I can't see them bringing up the value much when they are attached to the bike.
I think your best bet would be to part it out and sell it bit by bit or if you still have the old parts build it back to original and sell as original for $150, Some of the parts may be transferable to a new frame as part of your upgrade program.
