    How much to sell Monocog for?

    So I recently won a Monocog through a contest at our local liquor store. (Crazy, right?) I believe it's a 2012, but that's just a guess. It's too big for me, so I'm going to sell it. How much should I ask for it? From what I can gather on the web, it retailed at $550. It's brand new, never been ridden. Comes with some Alaskan Brewing decals that could be removed.

    I bought one about a year ago for $200 cash off CraigsList. It had never been ridden.

    Luckily, I was the first taker. Guy said he was getting emails and calls all day and grumbled he should have asked for more.

    Yea, you stole that. I'd say asking 500 would not be unreasonable and if someone offered you 450, you should both walk away quite happy.
    Oh noes. I'm going to drink the Kool-Aid.

    A cheap new bike makes a cheap used bike.

    Hard sell to think someone will pay new retail for a bike bought from an individual....I would say you could get $450 for it...I would pay that.

    According to my Bicycle Bluebook App a 2011 monocog (26") is worth:
    Like new is $281,
    Excellent is $268,
    Good is $241,
    Fair is $180.
    It didn't have data for a 2012.

    This is information from an APP! So take this information for what you think it's worth.

    I picked up my 2012 flight May of 2012 for 425, MSRP was $800 or so. Guy thought he wanted to get back into biking, but changed his mind. Wasn't brand new but pretty darn close to it. So maybe 300-350?

    FYI - wound up selling it for $335 on Craigslist. Considering I won it for free, I'll take it! Thanks for all your replies!
