I was just sitting around here and thinking (and supposed to be at work actually). I have a few retrobikes now... and I also have this Scott Scale 20. I upgraded it a bit. You know, put some X.0 on, lighter (DT240s) wheels, almost all WCS stuff etc. But the problem is (or maybe isn't): I bought this one in 2005 (september) and now that I have these retrobikes that I wanna use, I don't think I'll be using the Scale too much anymore. Well, it's had about 500miles anyhow until now.
So I was thinking:
1. Should I try and sell the whole bike? But then with all the upgrades and what it cost me (keeping in mind it only had 500miles and looks just about "unused") to get the bike this way, I feel somehow I'm ripping myself off by selling it...
2. Or maybe strip it and sell all the parts seperate and keep the frame? This way if I ever feel sorry, at least I have the frame (because that's what is worth most to me, especially with the uber-low useage). So I can then build it up again with some nicer parts.
3. Or maybe just not sell it at all, because if I have to think this hard about selling something it's probably gonna kick me in the b*tt once it's gone??
So how do you guys weigh up facts before selling something you're not sure about?? Of course it's personal, but this is going through my mind now for about a week or 2. One way I could use the cash (for building up a nice Zaskar to use and complete my collection), the other way it's a very very beautiful bike and I fell in love with it first time I saw it standing in the shop! So this is really a dilemma for me... I don't wanna regret doing something I shouldn't have done (had that going on more than enough in the past).
Thanks for all opinions to help me enlighten myself
