    I am going to sell my old 2o12 Jamis 650b Pro to a friend. I loaned it to him for his wife to ride for about a year, but borrowed it back (can I borrow my own bike?). It has mostly normal wear and tear for its age, but good enough that I was planning to race XC on it this year since my bike was stolen.

    How would you price it for a friend?

    130mm "trail" bike, but after riding it a bit I have found that it outperforms the Epic I raced before except for in weight (down to about 26 pounds with the light parts I've added) :Roflmao

    For a bike that blue books at 1000 or less and will enable my friend to ride with his wife, I would happily gift it. Or ask what they think is a bro deal and go with whatever they say.

    Somewhat along those lines I'd sell it to them for half the market value. That's what I did with my Stumpy. They actually wanted to give me more but I refused.

    Yea, I'd prob be in the 5-750 or 'long term loan'. Maintain it and if you ever don't want it, just give it back.

    Unless I were strapped for cash, I would ask for whatever they want to offer. But I tend to sell my used bikes well under the alleged market value. I just want them to have a good life with a rider who will be stoked.

    I don't drink, so...

    It was on long term loan, I think I'll go back to that.
