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.

I paid £100 for my east peak in 2011 same frame. I was looking at one of these on Ebay sold 2-300ish can't remember exactly

I have a Colnago frame 20" probably circa 1970's in reasonable condition for its age realistically how much might I hope to get for it if I put it on e bay or elsewhere.

Personally, I've always found that items with a high starting price tend to attract MUCH less interest from the outset.

That's not to say that it isn't worth £500, maybe more. However you'll get more interest and more bids if you set the start price to something ridiculous like 99p. If you want to, you can put a reserve of £500 on it to ensure that it won't sell for less.

You might want to put a photo of where it says proto on the frame

I just see a FSR DH that's stripped and slightly stolen looking....
