    What is my bike worth???

    1998 Gary Fisher Genesis Geometry

    Hello All - I am new to forums and don't have a ton of experience with Mtn biking. However I am looking at getting rid of my 1998 gary fisher and upgrading to something better. My question is I do not know how much to ask for my old bike? I bought it in 2010 for $1000 on consignment from a store. I went to bicyclebluebook.com and it was not listed. Can anyone help me with what a fair price would be. It is still in good shape and seems like a good bike.

    I was thinking of asking $500 not sure if that would be to high?

    Older mountain bikes aren't worth a whole lot anymore unless it's something that is a collector's item to someone, somewhere. With that said, top dollar for any 20+ year old mass produced bike will never be worth more than $500. What the heck, shoot for the moon and ask $500 if you live in a populous area. You never know...

    A year ago I sold my 2008 Giant Reign X1 for $850 AUD to someone I know. So around $600 USD.

    People will only pay what they think the bike is worth.

    So as fuzzymusketeer said, why not try $500. Most people would no doubt offer you less if they think it is not worth the asking price.

    We've got a make but no model.

    "Genesis Geometry" was a descriptor as how Gary Fisher thought a 29er bike should be designed, at the time it was a different hypothesis to most other manufacturers making bikes.

    $500 is high but worth trying as a staring point. That's a pretty old bike regardless of shape it's in but someone may really like it. I sold this bike for $400 about a year ago
