Can you help value a bike?

One of the sadder things about a being part of a community is when one of your number passes on. BIKEmagic regular, and respected contributor, Colin Jones lost his battle to a cancer in his adrenal gland last December. Time has passed and Colin’s bereaved wife Sheila has asked BIKEmagic to help sell her former husband’s beloved Santa Cruz Heckler.

The bike is too big for Sheila and she would rather see it ridden than sit in the garage so she’s decided to sell it on. The problem is that she doesn’t know what to ask for it. The bike is in “really good condition, it was well looked after and serviced regularly”. If you have any ideas what she should ask for it please email us and we’ll pass everything onto Sheila do she can advertise the bike in the BM classifieds.

Colin was a prolific contributor to the BM forum and wrote two articles for BIKEmagic, one about riding in Mabie forest shortly before his death last year.
