People that flip bikes buy low and sell high. No way to do that when you buy new. Be ready to take a loss or keep riding the bike you have. No other way around it.

Prices for the gen 5 bikes are plummeting. Thatís for new ones! Maybe if the mods are included, you could do ok. Otherwise you are competing against dealers selling for half of MSRP.

If I could garner any input at all from people with experience in flipping bikes, it would only help.
A bike is not a house. No appreciation in a bike as simply not enough bike collector geeks. BUT, Seller can't flip a bike BUT buyers sometimes; in your case, take 5k and he'll sell it for close to 10k to someone like me that can actually ride the machine with the machine loving every second of it.

Hope this helps and I hope you understand that your case is not unusual. If you hate the bike, just sell it.
