    XPost: 1990's Klein Pinnacle

    I recently acquired a 90's Klein Pinnacle that came with Deore XT, LX and DX parts. SIS 7 speed thumbs and XT pedals and headset. Even the seat post is Deore XT. I am currently letting my 14 yo ride it but am not sure if this is a wise decision. I would like your thoughts since I think that it may be a valuable piece of mountain bike history.

    Let your kid ride it. It's a cool ride but not historical.

    ^Agreed^

    I just bought one for $25 if that helps with valuation concerns.

    Albeit, I was giddy for such a deal.....

    Seems the average value is coming in at a couple hundred, so yeah, good, cool, kids bike.

    Nice, if not nicer than anything you can buy now-a-days, but its not worth a mint.

    Looks like a big frame, but if your 14 year old fits on it and likes it...let him ride it. He'll be that much better of a rider if/when he makes the move to full suspension.
