Hopefully Im in the correct section this time !
I have an M2XX 18" which I think is 97/98
SId's
s-works wheel set (new sl370 radial front hub)
XTR 950 v's, shifters and rear mech
XT BB, cassette & specialized chainset
Ritchey WCS stem, seatpost, saddle & bar ends
Forcelite flat bars
New captain tyres
So a nice upgraded semi-retro which I would like to sell to fund another build but dont want to give away
Any advice on value would be grand

Pictures and condition would really help. The frame is nice but under-appreciated, wheels are meh, 8 speed M950 nice, SIDs good, Ritchey stuff neither here nor there.
Some have sold real cheap on Ebay recently but I would say just north of £350 (depends greatly on condition)

I'm being given a 2001 Marin Wolf Ridge which is almost completely original - brakes were replaced last year with Shimano M525. It's spent most of its life in storage so is in good nick for its age - will try & post up some pics when it arrives.

Any ball-park guide on its worth would be appreciated.

Now got it - details as follows:

2001 Wolf Ridge FS with the original TARA adjustable rear (4/5/6 inch travel) - 17.5" frame. Mostly original spec other than the brakes:

RS Psylo XC Forks
RS SID XC Rear Shock
Race Face Prodigy Chainset & BB
Mavic rims on Marin Ovation hubs
LX Shifters (9 spd)
LX Front Mech
XT Rear Mech
M575 Brakes (white, fitted last year)
Panaracer XC Pro 2.1 Tyres
WTB Saddle
Marin Ovation Bars, Stem, Seat Post & Binder

All in decent nick for age with a few scrapes here & there having spent much of its life in storage.

Green M2 - I'd hazard a guess at £200-250. But really, it's a splitter. XTR stuff, the RF cranks and the SRAM LTD gears will all fetch very good money on ebay. As a serial M2 owner i might be up for another if the price was right :) Drop me a pm if you like :)

Got one of these to sell, that needs a bit of fettling. Its the current monocoque frame with 3(shimano hub)x8(derailleur) speed gears "Touring" model. Needs re-cabled, new shifters, chain, bearings etc. All the components are pretty low end stuff especially for a bike that cost as much as this did. I need to maximise my return on this! Anyone any idea what its worth returned to good condition standard spec, or even if its worth fitting Ultegra chainset, XT mech/shifters etc? (s/h of course). meant to put this in the "how much " thread, sorry :oops:
