    Should I sell my shiver

    I can't decide if I should keep it as a back up for my fox 40?

    no, keep and hang it up on your garage wall. It looks sick and shows that you aren't a newb and rode when the shiver was around

    you probably can't get what it's worth on ebay... so i would just keep it. it's a classic and like previously mentioned shows that you've been in the scene long enough to know what's up.

    keep it for a spare and if someone comes along and offers you a good price then sell it

    If it's still working hold onto it. If you ever have to send your 40 in for 2 to 4 weeks, you'll still be able to ride. I missed an entire month once due to no back up fork! BTW, I LOVED my shiver. It was more plush than my 888 RC.

    Sell your 40 and use the funds to buy several shivers, that way you can keep rockin' one for years to come.

    a lot of people started riding post shiver and arent newbs. in addition if some one was like "check this out im not a newb cus i have this fork" i would slap them in the mouth.

    If you said that to me, you would get a fat slap. Pimping is my profession. The OP never made mention that he needed $$$. If it is an option to keep a Shiver for the hell of it... he needs no money. Never insult a mans wallet.

    i just bought a new fork, rear shock, brakes, rotors, grips, and rims. some of them are a lil banged around but not to bad. im not selling any of it. keeping it b/c the fork works, the rear shock is crap, the brakes work (but mechanical), rotors are a preferance, grips are new, and rims are bent just a hair. but im keeping it all for back ups. =D and it looks cool to have a bunch of extra stuff hanging in the work shop.
