With cars a VW will cost more but will have a higher resale value when you sell it.... than say a Citroen.
I churn bikes every 2-3 years so is an important factor. Saying that, i am not expecting my Pivot to have a high resale value it's not a very cool brand. If it was an Ibis, yeti, Santacruz etc... It would expect to get more for it.
Fair enough, and you're right, but I'm unlikely to get an excuse to trade in again until it's a wreck, so resale isn't one of my main deciding factors. I reckon I'm 99% there on the Canyon 7.9 now. I just need to be able to sell my current bike to get away with it. I hate e-bay, but looks like that's the only practical option. Just hope its worth enough to bring my layout on the Canyon to less than a grand!
Erm, anyone want to buy a nice Gary Fisher Cake 3? Will accept trade in for brand new Canyon...
