    How much should I ask for my LHT?

    I am strongly considering selling my barely used LHT and buying an Ogre.

    It's a 2010 in Blue, 58cm 700c... mileage is seriously like only around 150-180 miles.

    It's a complete, but at delivery the LBS put a Cane Creek 110 headset on it, Salsa Woodchipper handlebar, and SKS P50 fenders.

    It also has Nitto Albatross bars, with portuguese cork grips and brake levers/cables from Rivendell. And a VO setback seatpost, all this was from when the bike had an iBert on it. And the stock bars. So three bars total.

    Oh, and the tires are Schwalbe Marathon Extreme in 40mm. Would come with the stock Contis with 10 miles on them too.

    If this isn't allowed, please delete, I'm not trying to sneak a For Sale ad in, I just have no idea how to price a bike that is barely used with some add-ons.

    I don't know. Sounds pretty tricked out. How about checking out the craigslist listingd in your area to gauge what similar bikes are going for?

    Sounds like something I would be interested in. I am going to try and test ride a 58 and a 60 this weekend to see which would fit me best.

    That's the problem, all that sells on CL around here is department store bikes, mostly. eBay only has one I think. I should probably try the Google LHT listgroup or whatever it's called

    Do you want to just move it or get your money back? $600 might get it off your hands in a hurry.

    I think I want to straddle the "not cheap but not too much" line, haha. I'm usually good with gauging bike depreciation but I've never bought a bike and barely used it.
