    2005 is old?
    it wont hang around for long at £250
    resisting offering to take it of your hands…..

    if it weren't for me being about to leave uni, with no idea where i'd be going, i'd be very tempted at £250…

    sounds like it spends its life under bridges 😉

    and if its legit – you will be guaranteed some **** will be along to buy it and sell it on at profit ….

    the underbridges comment just went over my head 😀

    i may e-bay it then or bang it on here, as long as guy in bike shop doesn't take it off me

    This 2006 framed orange 5 is on eBay at the moment…

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Orange-5-Five-Mountain-Bike-Fox-Hope-Pro-2-Saints_W0QQitemZ140382708964QQcmdZViewItemQQptZUK_Bikes_GL?hash=item20af7624e4

    Its on for £1390. Yes it hasn't sold and yes I'm sure there's plenty of differences in spec but he has had offers.

    Start at a higher price and reduce until it sells.

    too cheap.
    a new drive train is not as expensive as you think.

    its 16 inch, and covered in mud at the moment, it needs new crank, bb, chain, cassette, swingarm bearings, wheels need rebuilding but the do have hope xc hubs, hope headset, seatpost collar and skewers. FSA carbon wrap seatpost and white saddle. i'm only selling as i've bought a Rocky Mountain altitude 50 and i cant have 2 bikes according to GF.

    depends on the fork, but i would have that as your bottom line for frame/fork (possibly with seatclamp/headset/BB thrown in for free)

    if you are selling it whole then probably consider starting between four and five hundred – dependant on spec and condition obviously

    Sounds alright, if you do want to sell it do you want to drop me a mail? It's in my profile.

    Missus has mavix xm321s on pro2 hubs on her inbred (that she's adamant her HT will cope in the alps), so would swap them over anyway.

    Phil if you decide to sell drop me an email (in my profile) its just the kind of thing my brother is looking for.

    I reckon you'd find a buyer for twice that easily.
    Thrice that wouldn't seem completely unreasonable either.

    that ebay link is for one I am selling for a mate. Even just frame only 5's sell for a good £300 no matter what the age, even old patriots fetch £200 frame only. The one on fleabay has new drive, new saint brakes, 36 forks and shock mojo or TF serviced, its pretty light for a burly bike. This one as stated

    needs new crank, bb, chain, cassette, swingarm bearings, wheels need rebuilding… did it get run over 🙂

    cannot really compare them

    Ok its not my bike, its a mates and personally I think £1300 or so is a reasonable price for a decent spec, very well looked after five. There are 50 watching it.. mmm

    Anyhow £250 for a five, full build. Its £250 prob for a very good reason, or someone will get the bargain of a lifetime

    Even with that list of work – it's still worth more than 250.

    if you sell youre bike what will you call yourself?may I add myself to this scramble I am local to you and think the five should remain in its naitive enviroment (crossing fingers etc) 😳

    Member

    hahaha no it didn't get run over, top and middle ring are worn and need replacing plus rear cassette is showing signs of wear so needs new drive train, someone in the know could replace everything easily but im not that good. mine has fox 32 f130 forks and fox vannila rear shocks 😀 bike is well looked after ive just worn it out lol 😀

    would recon 250 is way to cheep, if it is just wear and tear items that have gone and there is no damage to the frame, double that as a minimum you could expect for it, shold easily sell for 600

    Why not? Its the same frame. Anyway, I'm not saying your mate's isn't worth £1300, I'm saying the OP is worth way more than £250 assuming no major damage to frame/fork. Good luck with the sale…both of you 😀

    :edit: great marketing for your bike btw philfive….beats the usual 'how much is it worth?' threads, must remember that when I come to sell a bike 😉

    philfive

    no damage to frame or fork. if bike shop doesnt get it ill wash it and put some pics up at weekend, the bike stil pedals well in granny ring 😀

    even with the work I think he should be looking at circa £600-700, would give someone a decent five for around a grand. Or just over a grand if they did it up a bit. Or to put it another way a grand for the best do it all bike (according to stw opinion) 🙂

    way too cheap, forks are worth £150 on their own
    nearer £500 as is

    timdrayton

    worth 2 maybe 2.5 times £250 imho, i am all for a bargain, and some people give stuff away on here, but if you want to maximise what you get for it, then check ebays completed items.

    (you could give it to kaesae, he would make it better than new, but seriously)

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ORANGE-5-XC-MOUNTIN-BIKE_W0QQitemZ260556275901QQcmdZViewItemQQptZUK_Bikes_GL?hash=item3caa5d40bd

    this went for £850 for a 2007 with new bearings, and not great kit

    so if i were selling it id be looking for £600 minimum (remember ebay charge you around 10% of total though!)

    i dont mind giving things away to be fair, i've had good use from my 5 and loved every single minute of it. i do think 250 is a fair price but u can shower me with gifts as well 😀

    ill put a couple of pics up when i get home

    wwaswas has a point about the scrum – but being in Lanc. too, it seems almost rude not to ask for some pics after everyone else's dibs
