    Pricing a used bike can be hard. As a seller usually you won't get anything near what you think your bike is worth. If you are a buyer you can get a great deal if you are willing to put in the time to look for deals.

    A new one can still be had for less than $1100 http://bicyclebananas.com/mm5/mercha...05_Dakar_XLT_1

    So a used one is going to be worth much less than that.

    Heres a used 2006 on ebay for $850. I suspect it will not sell at that price.

    Thanks for that awesome answer. That one on eBay is actually why I posted this. I was thinking the same as you so I offered the seller 650 (plus 70 shipping) and it was declined. Debating whether I up the price or just pass if the seller isn't clear on what the bike is really worth.

    that ebay xlt likely wont go for 850...but 750 is reasonable.

    06 Xlt1

    I bought a new Trek EX8 this past spring to replace my 2006 XLT1 and was going to sell the Jamis and even with a new LX crankset, like new condition, Thompson seat post and stem, Mavic Crossride wheels and small block tires, 990 cassette, and 991 chain was not offered more than $750.00. I have $2000.00 invested and the bike has the same Fox fork and shock that's on my 2008 Trek that cost me $2600.00, not a good return on a bike with only 700 miles on it. I decided to keep it as a spare for my grandson's to ride with me or when one of my son's bikes is broken (yes, I'm 62 yrs old, but fat and happy with mountain biking). Now I think I'll buy another EX8 (2009) and keep the 08 as a spare (yes, they are that nice) and cut my loses on the Jamis, letting it go.

    Beemer, gotta tell ya...

    I'd keep the Jamis, for parts if nothing else; "cutting your losses" is a bit of an oxymoron, because the losses you'll be cutting are mostly parts costs. To take that much loss on that good a bike is an insult I couldn't live with. I'd closet the parts, if nothing else. Heck, send me a quote for the bare frame!
