    How much have you sold a used Motobecane for?

    I recently bought my wife a new bike and her old 2010 Fantom 29pro sl (15") is taking up too much space in our tiny garage.

    We paid around $1k for it in 2010, put a King Headset, thomson seatpost, XT cassette, bigger tires and a shorter stem with wider handlebars on it.

    The bike is in great condition thanks to my wife being so light and not aggressive.

    I was thinking around $600. . .here are the original specs: Motobecane USA | 29er Mountain Bikes

    I hate to say, I've had better luck parting out my moto than trying to sell it. As good as the bike is, it's got a stigma about it that few people will want to buy a used moto. If you're trying to sell it complete, I'd price it comparable to what the individual parts would sell for, not including the frame.

    For a loose frame, I'd put it at half or a litle less than a new frame costs on bikeisland or a comparable from the other online sellers with their brand frames. slight hit because it uses the 27.2 seat tube. Off the cuff, I'd say about $75 based on condition.

    ^^^^What he said. Used Motos have basically no resale value. I had a couple that I had to part out to make any money. I had to sell the frames for almost nothing. Just list them for what you think they are worth and you can always lower the price.
