    ^ The broken shifter would not bother me, because I'll probably look into converting whatever bike I get into an SS or 3-speed (I have no need for all those gears), but I think that size is too small for me, and the price too high.

    $45 for both shifters x.7
    SRAM X.7 3 x 9 Trigger Shifter Set - AAWYEAH Bikes and Bicycle Parts

    even better, put grip shifts on it for weight saving that cost even less

    Get a craiglist app on your smart phone or craigslist notifcatin app on your browser
    https://chrome.google.com/webstore/search/craigslist
    Set search terms "29er" "fox". "Reba". Be patient, I would aim for half off (or less) the sale price (not MSRP) for a 3-4 year old bike.

    I grabbed this one today. 2008 Specialized rockhopper disc. $300


    And tomorrow, I should be picking up a 2007 Specialized hardrock pro disc from a guy who bought it new for his GF, she rode it once and then they broke up, so it's brand new. Still has the barcode/price sticker on the frame from the store he bought it from. asking $325.

    '12 Dawes Haymaker 1200. Just got it last week and went out for my first ride Sunday. It's entry level, but I'm happy. Haven't been on a bike since college (10+ years ago). Hands were numb after the ride so I'll have to look at seat and bar height and angle I think, also replace the stock grips with some Oury ones. Brakes squeal something fierce so some adjustment is needed there too.

    Not enough posts to put up the image or link, but you know the one from BD.

    Thanks. It's nice indeed, but nothing fancy. My new one to replace it is over the top !

    A '00 GT XCR 3000 in Medium size. Paid $400 for about a month ago. Didn't ride it since (had something else to finish first). The guy bought it new in 2001 and I don't know why he did since he used it only for pavement and city riding... Hence the street tires and other shizzles. Pretty much everything is stock, even the drivetrain. This frame will see another decade (and more) of enjoyment

    My primary geared mtn bike for 10+ years. A KHS Montana Team that I bought in used 1999, I think. Originally a 7 speed, scavenged parts off another KHS bought used, mostly XT, Raceface cranks. Wheels are XT/Rhyno Lite bought locally on eBay.

    Discounting the accessories and the chain/pads/cables, I think I have around $350 in it after selling the excess parts. I painted it last year with the green from a camo spray kit. This one hasn't seen any trails in several years, but when it had a computer on it, I'd logged over 8,000 miles.

    Surly 1x1. Paid $260 for it, almost as seen here. Saddle was from a previous bike and I added the pedals and accessories. Still, well under $400.

    Does this count?
    XTR XT for less than 300 euros, that is what I call a damn steal!
    Bought the bike for 300 euros, BB died.

    I bought an box full of mtb/race parts and i found an deore mt60 crank in it, with TA wheels, LBS installed a new BB, left crank arm taper hole busted, putted an NOS 600 arm on it, Swapped the saddle for an Selle SMP, Pedals went from Wellgo WPD801 to Shima PDM505, Fork was upgraded with springs from an old RS Judy XC, later with a one-piece spring from an Suntour XCP75, And today, i filled the shock with oil, Brakes died, went from magura to deore m595s.

    2009 Rockhopper I bought it used for $125 with XTR 9 spd drivetrain
    I put white wheels on it $90
    Also added a Marocchi fork for $119
    This bike got crushed between 2 vehicles so now I'm putting all the parts on my son's bike.

    2011 Gravity. I bought this bike from a lady that bought it for her son, then decided he wanted a BMX bike. I got it for $125 when it was less than 2mo old.

    Where are all these deals when I'm looking? The only things I've seen on Craigslist and the like are either garbage Next bikes, WalGooses, or stuff that's $2k or more. Still looking for a Rockhopper or the like for $125.

    You have to be patient. And know what to look for. Most of those deals were poorly advertised, like only "MTB for sale, ride nice, good shape" and a picture. At least that's how it goes in my neck of the wood.

    2011 Diamondback Response Sport. Bought this for $350 brand new. It was after the 2012s came out. It's an incredible bike and while it doesn't have the best components but it's a great frame to upgrade and for the price you can't beat it.

    That is a 1995 Hoo Koo E Koo! I have one exactly like that one sitting in my garage right now, needing some repair. I ultimately decided to buy new when I got back into the sport earlier this year. Been thinking about resurrecting the ole Hoo Koo E Koo though, it was a great bike...

    diamondback topanga YES. TOPANGA. HAHA.



    JK. I purchased this bike from my local sports authority (ready to get flamed). It was advertised for 399 on sale (orig. 649). I used the 20% off coupon and it came out to 319. then i added the 3 year warranty/bike tune-ups for 60. so i basically paid 400 and some change.

    here she is...my commute to work!

    Only picture I have now. Excuse the mess...I just moved.

    Trek 4500, dart 3, avid bb7 disc brakes, deore front and rear dérailleur. $400 but I am going to have to change the bottom bracket since it must have a bad bearing.
