Is this a fair price?(3 posts)

Is this a fair price?Roger H

I've got an ad running for my Vortex frame and was curious if the price was too much. I paid a lot more for it , but realize that being a custom probably affects the value. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks

I think it is too high by quite a bit (better priced around $1250). The used bike market stinks for sellers.

First of all throw out any of the custom costs, it might even hurt the cost if it is too different.

Take retail and divide by 2 = $1625 obo is fair (but you can also think that what ever anyone is willing to pay is fair...leave at your price and see if anyone is interested, if not...in a week lower it $100...another week lower it again.)

The question begs to be asked, !!!!WHY ARE YOU SELLING A CUSTOM VORTEX!!!! (I would rather have my teeth slamed into the curb.)
