    Fuji 25th Anniversary...junker or collectible??

    Still have my 1995 Discovery SX 25th Anniversary bike....I put some miles on it, mostly the first few years I had it and then got interested in road bikes. Now want to go back to my trails, too. Bike is in near mint condition. I haven't been able to find any reviews or documentation on this model. Are there many of these out there and is it worth keeping, i.e. collectible? I'd really appreciate some info, opinions and advice. Here are the specs on the bike. Is it still a viable ride?? THANKS!!!

    I don't think it's going to be immensely valuable. Most people who are into vintage bikes want something really unique. A vintage Fuji is just not as valuable as a vintage Colnago, Masi, Ciocc, etc.

    It would make a really nice grocery getter. You could probably sell it for a few hundred to a college kid.

    The quality of mountain bikes has increased so much since you got that bike. For $400-500 you can get bikes with nicer shocks and disc brakes. They'll probably be a little bit heavier, but will ride a lot nicer.

    Trails have changed a lot too. The kind of trail your bike was designed for may be hard to find, depending on where you live. Where do you live?
