/ Bike dilemma
Anyone got any idea what I might get for the old bike, or able to offer any other advice or guidance?
The problem is you are thinking about this in the wrong way... really you should be asking the question "How many bikes do I need?"
The answer to this question is always N+1 (N being the number of bikes you currently have)
I just sold a Cove Stiffee with Fox, Raceface, Hope brakes, which was a more expensive bike that yours but it was in need of quite a lot of tlc and a few bits that I'd robbed for my new steed.
It went for £250 to a mate who put it back together for his son.
I'd say yours was worth £180 - £200
What's the best place to sell bikes: eBay, Gumtree or a bike-specific forum?
In reply to balmybaldwin:
I've often wondered about this "N+1" philosophy. At what point does a healthy, self-reliant, eco-friendly cyclist turn in to an acquisition-driven slave of the neo-capitalist consumer society propping up unsustainable and environmentally destructive manufacturing industries?
Although in my case the actual problem is that I don't have N+1 storage spaces available...
