    What can I get for a 2014 Fuel EX 9.8 Carbon?

    Hey guys,

    I'm not soliciting a sale here or anything like that, but rather would
    like to get your feedback.

    I bought a 2014 Trek Fuel EX 9.8 Carbon XT Build (size XL)

    This bike here:

    Fuel EX 9.8 29 - Trek Bicycle

    I also bought a Santa Cruz Tallboy LTc X01 build.

    I decided the Tallboy fits my riding style more and I was thinking of
    selling the Trek.

    The bike is literally 3 weeks old and has about 10 rides on it.

    What do you guys think I could get for it if I try to ebay it or sell
    it on pinkbike or something

    I paid $5,500 for it.

    Thanks in advance!

    I probably have as much experience as anyone reselling used XL bikes. I manage a Trek dealer and buy and resell a bike every year. Now the sucky thing about reselling an XL bike is that the market for them is much lower but there is still a market so you first need to decide is how long you can afford to sit on it. If the answer is a while than you will be better off because the 2015 fuel ex isn't much different with the exception on the new reaktiv rear shock which is unproven so that bike is still pretty much the same as the new ones. I just looked that bike up and there are none available through Trek which also helps you a bit. The issue is though most people can get these for way under market value even when they are new. I won't say what I would sell a new one for but I will say it's significantly less. If it's in perfect condition with no scrathes at all you can ask $5,000 and be prepared to take around $4700/4800 or if you want a quick sale I would list it at $4500 and take anything over $4200.

    Should sell fast. If you live somewhere with an abundance of bikers put it on craigslist too.
