I would not sell that bike. I'd keep it and enjoy many hours of glorious road rides.
If you insist on selling the bike, give pinkbike a try. They seem to be a good place to sell high end bikes.

I do not see the need/use for thermal bib shorts. For cold weather I wear full length thermal bibs. In cool weather I'll opt for 3/4 length knickers. That combination seems to work well for me.
