Thinking of turning to the dark side and getting a road bike, and given that I have only ridden my Hot twice since I built it, I think its best to pass onto a new owner who can appreciate it more.

So - will likely be stripping the build down and selling all parts individually.

Question is, any ideas on what to ask for the frame?

Here is a pic of it built up.

Would also be interested to know what people think the forks are worth too.

if that frame was just a couple sizes smaller, it would already be gone. At the price you bought it for, you'll come out ahead for sure. List it at $500 usd, and take $400 if no offers come along after a while...so $400 to $500 range, especially if it's as clean as it looks.

no logo would be worth more. This one, about $75 to $85 usd, but if a couple people really want it on the bay, it could go much higher.

Hi everyone,

I got the frame and fork new in 98 and put the bike together then as it is now, apart from new chain and cassette as well as bars changed every 3 years for safety.

Full XTR M950 8-speed
Syncros post, stem, bars and grips
RaceFace headseat
Mavic 517 with Sunn's Brubz hubs (lighter than Crossmax)
Flite Ti
Time Atac pedals (original bearings!!)
Sid

Weight about 10.5kgs depending on tyres and tubes.

I might be selling, so it would be great to know how much you guys think I could get for it... The bike has only done 2000 kms I guess, if that...

Cheers.

If you part it out you'll get more I think. However it is a loveley bike and quite rare over here. I'd want good money for that.

If you part it out can I have first dibs on the SID fork please?
