    Yeti resale value??

    I bought a ASR-5 alloy last fall and I upgraded the hell out of it. But now I want an ASR or ARC to race. The 5 did fine, but I dont need the 5in suspension, especially since everyone in my cat has hardtail race bikes. Will I be able to get a good price out of it trying to sell it used?

    It might help if I gave you an idea of what I upgraded. Got stans tubless wheels laced to 240 hubs, carbon bars, lighter stem. XTR rear d, XTR crank, XT shifters, XO cassette, formula RX brakes. Only thing I didnt change is the x5 front d. Weighs 24.3 lbs

    Do you have any use for the 5 for training or fun? Maybe just get an ARC enduro, keep the 5 and swap the parts between the two?

    Resale on mountain bikes is typically bad unless you have something really rare. I sold my '08 575 with PUSH shock for $790 a few months ago. Only redeeming factor is I got a new Yeti 7 for $675.

    What size and color is your ASR5? I have a black '08 medium ASR Carbon and I've been seriously thinking about switching to the ASR5.
