    Mongoose DX 3.3
    Retails $250
    Bought this year for $80
    Used it as a daily commuter for a few months before trying it on a few trails at Brandywine Creek State Park, PA. Got hooked immediately. No budget for a high ender. So, I work my ass off just to keep up! Figure it's better exercize for when I do have the budget to upgrade.

    I'll post a pic when I reach 10 posts.

    Right now I'm trying to find a decent 1" suspension for for around $100 or less. Don't want to spend the money I need to upgrade with.

    Here's my 09 HiLand Nitro AL. Not quite up to par with most of yall's bikes, but it gets me down the trail. I hope to be able to upgrade to a Giant or Trek with my tax return.

    Save that cash instead of upgrading get a better used bike. It would be cheaper.

    1997 Cannondale M500

    Mint condition, off craigslist for $120. took it to my local trails (markham park S.FL) and I was the only rigid out there. out my group, a gary fisher blew a tire and a brand new specialized had the chain slip off. neither was a big deal but i had to point out how my 15 yr old bike rode flawlessly lol.

    Picked up this Cannondale F500 for $325. It wasnt a steal, but I got a decent bike that has very few hours on it for less than half of original MSRP, so that is ok by me.

    So many great deals on this thread! I am going to be cruising CL for that steal now!

    way too much for non-disc brake frame (90's era), the going price is around $150 - $180. I got two 2003 F400 (which has tabs for rear disc brakes), one for $120 (see pic below) & the other for $100 (the guy thought the fork was defective, but in fact only needed air!)

    I got a 2001 F1000 for $150 (!!), the MSRP was like $2400. The seller was a computer tech guy who just "dumped it on the market".

    I just picked this one up yesterday evening for $80 (Hoping its a good deal) . It's a bit scratched up but it's an upgrade from my cheapy Pacific bike. Saw it on CL and thought I don't have much to lose. The guy I bought it from said it was two years old but I don't know much more about it. I just found out a short while ago its an 04. Not too sure about what upgrades if any were done.

    ^^^ Thats definitely an upgrade over a Pacific. You may wanna pull the kickstand as it could hurt you if it drops down during a jump. Also check the welds/frame for cracks. Just to be safe!

    Thats one of the first things I was looking for when I went to check it out. Looked ok from my perspective, but of course its my untrained eye looking for it. I'm just hoping I didn't get too ripped off with picking this up for $80. I see a lot of bikes on here that seem close to perfect for just a little more than I paid.

    got a new bike



    pretty simple to put together although getting the front brake attached was something i've never done before so that was the most time consuming part.

    A big upgrade from the 2008 Trek 820. Took it out for a little bit today and loved every minute. Grinning from ear to ear and cant wait to tear up some trails this weekend.

    349 from Bikes direct.

    Nice bike Congratulations! I got the 450ht from BD and very happy, I was actually looking at that Gravity too, keep us posted on your experience, I almost got the white but since they had orange.. I had to run w/that you should also post it in the Motobecane forum I've seen a few Gravitys there.

    I just noticed is that a rigid fork?

    I will do that

    Yep, it is a rigid fork. I was going for simplicity with this bike. With the old Trek 820 I had, the fork was pretty worthless so it felt like I was riding rigid anyway.

    I cant post any pics yet as i dont have enough posts, (my first one ) but i just picked up a 2009 specialized rock hopper comp disc (the yellow frame) for $340 on CL. based on my research i thought that was a good deal. what do you guys think? Its in great shape. was basically used a road bike, commuter, park with the kids bike for the past 2 or so years.

    Got it for 55.00 off CL, needed full maintenence done, spent 80.00 in new rear wheel hub an cassette.

    So 135.00 not bad. The fork is crap but usable. We replaced the seat, handle bars an pedals with spares i had laying around.

    Man I hit the jackpot on CL which is very rare in my area. Found this Trek 820 Antelope for $20! It's small for me but I just wanted a cheap lender/commuter bike. Total of $25 after I receive the new tube for the front, $60 if you include the extra pedals I had laying around.

    Had to take off all the reflectors, adjust the handlebars, true the wheels, fix the seat, and adjust the breaks, but now its golden.

    Hardrock Pro, £125 GBP.

    I've upgraded it out of all recognition since, but it's a rock-solid stiff and nimble frame, and solid wheels. They're all that's left except the rear derailleur of the bike as I got it and they'll be going up for sale next week!

    First post here, first bike in many years

    I'm building a GT LTS up at the moment using old spares, gifts from my neighbour for some computer help and a bit eBaying. Total spend so far - £60. All I need now is a front wheel with a 20mm axle hub (bought a 15mm by mistake) and some shifters.

    Will post a pic soon. Not very modern but I love it so far!

    Haven't ridden properly in years so I can't wait to get finished!

    Here's my $250 Cannondale Chase Craigslist find.
    Post your less than 0 mountain bike-imageuploadedbytapatalk1350955699.488770.jpg
    I've had it about a month now, the guy who sold it to me worked at a bike shop and this was barely used, it looks like it was ridden twice. So far I love it. I've been riding bmx and commuting to work on a singlespeed road bike for years. My friends just decided to start mountain biking and I've done it in the past but never took it seriously. I love the bike and the sport, I already have plans to build up a singlespeed 29er and then hand this down to my Fiancè.

    Do you think $300 is too much for a Trek 3700 with disc brakes and full light setup? It will be for my wife.

    New member, first post. I grabbed this 09 DB Response off CL Raleigh, NC about a week ago.
    Put a barrel adjuster on it and cleaned/lubed it. total damage so far is $150. I'm loving it
