    What is a used V3 Burner worth?

    I am planning to sell off my 2014 V3 Burner frame, but I知 honestly not sure what to ask for it. Would come with a King headset and two shocks (CC db in-line and the fox that came with the frame). Not sure if I値l post it here or try and sell it locally. Any thoughts? Thanks for the help.

    As a reference point, I bought my wife a Burner 3.1 recently

    $1500
    XT build
    Kashima rear shock
    RS Pike
    Dropper
    STans with DT360

    I think that this was under priced.

    Maybe try $800 and keep knocking off $50's every week until it sells.

    Honestly, aluminum bikes are almost as dead as 26" bikes on the used market. 6th's plan sounds like a good one. I think you end up closer to $500 for just the frame. I say sell the extra shock separately (fox not the CC).

    I thought used aluminum Turner frames had a higher value!

    Thanks for the feedback. I知 hoping since the bike is 275 it will be somewhat relevant. The non boost spacing is what I知 worried about. Frame is good condition. I値l be posting it up in the marketplace in the next few weeks.

    I have same generation Burner, but orange, with a the only blemish on the frame being a scrape to the downtube due to my buddy being an idiot when he put his bike on the rack (and me being an idiot for not checking his work). Anyway, I looked at sales prices, decided I was better off keeping it as a nice loaner bike for when friends are in town. It's the non boost spacing more than anything, I think. Well, that and the fact that people won't give anything without "progressive" geometry a try (and I love the geometry of my new Fugitive, but the Burner rides pretty damn well).

    I agree, but ultimately the bike is a bit small for me. Hopefully, I will be able to pass it along to another worthy owner.
