- am i selling it too cheap?
This 2006 framed orange 5 is on eBay at the moment…
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.Posted 8 years ago
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.Posted 8 years ago
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 obviouslyPosted 8 years agoSpankmonkeyMember
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 lifetimePosted 8 years ago
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 😀Posted 8 years agonukeSubscriber

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 😉Posted 8 years agotimdraytonMember
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)
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!)Posted 8 years ago
