    Not sure what its worth - saddle

    Hi, Im thinking of selling my saddle in order to get one with a deeper seat. Im not sure what I should asking for it. Im wondering what you guys think.
    Its a close contact Santa Cruise, with a 17" seat and a wide tree. I bought it (new) for around $800 while it was on sale and the original price was a bit over $1000. Its in great condition (No scratches, nicks, dents) even though I've had it for almost 3 years. Its dark brown (reddish brown) and is two-toned, (its beige on the underside if that makes sense lol). I also have to original Santa Cruise cover that came with it.
    I don't have any pictures of it right now.
    Im hoping to get enough money from it to get a decent saddle with a deeper seat.
    Also I was wondering if anybody had some experience with trading used saddles at a store, or something along those lines.
    Any ideas?

    I'd ask for $700 or so, and you can move down a bit from there. Do you have photos? Also, the brand is spelled Santa Cruz :)

    Does it have padded flaps and knee rolls? If so, I'd say $500-600 in our current economy. If it doesn't have padded flaps and knee rolls, then you'd be looking at the low end of that, or less. Plain close contact saddles are not "in style" right now.

    Luvs2ride is where I would place the value. If you are looking to trade it at a tack shop, keep in mind that they will give you wholesale for your saddle, not the 500 - 600 that they will sell it for but closer to 300- 400 and then apply it to the retail price for their saddle. It's no different then trading in a car.
