Wondering if anyone has thoughts on how I could best sell this. Sell the whole bike? Piece it out? I've looked around and some of the individual pieces are getting some decent money.

The hubs are interesting as they are Bontrager branded Chris King Hubs that were made for Bontragers early RaceLite wheelset. Anyone know about these? Should I sell the wheelset, or break them down and sell the hubs?

Thanks for any help!

Its always financially more attractive to part out a bike than sell it whole.

Hi,
I believe, on the forums like this, you may find lots of discussions about old fashioned bikes, where people are searching for the details and sometimes whole old bikes.
Anyway, maybe you'll find there someone who's looking for a second hand bike like this.
Good luck.

Hi mate, I’d keep it if I were you, if you don’t want to ride it wrap it up and stick it in your loft. I have a carbon framed Santa Cruz in my garage but love nothing more than jumping onto my 1994 Raleigh M-TRAX and going for a spin.

As said, break it down and sell parts.
Older bikes like these as a whole aren't worth as much as people
like to think, prices are only pushed by the demands of collectors
and is not reflective of there actual worth.

Bikes of this age are prone to stress and fatigue as the alloy is nearer
the end of life spectrum, so gentle retirement rides of nostalgia to
prolong its days,

Parts on the other hand, some one is always looking for that particular
part to complement there build, they may consider the whole bike if its
cheap and viable to there need to aquire that part or two thats on it.
