    My daughter's friend asked me to buy his old bike from him this evening. While I remember the brand, I don't know anything about them.

    A little research says this is a '95 A2V and some sources say it was built by Yeti in Durango. It is a Tange Ultimate Superlight frame.

    Based on the non-driveside photo that was texted to me, it appears the original Dia-Compe cantilever brakes were replaced with v-brakes, and the fork is now a Tora. Looks like it still has the original Gripshift and Mavic rims. Don't know about the rest of the drive train.

    It is a bit newer than the stuff I know. It looks a bit small for me so I turned it down, but was wondering if it is worth anything?

    Sometimes they have nice parts on them, and they generally ride well, but not really worth much if it is fitted with their generic parts. If the size was right it could be a good beater and the fork is likely worth as much as the rest of the bike.

    Yeah well, take a quick look around there. Not too much action, and the few that are posting aren't talking much about Barracuda.

    Cooks Cranks

    I have an old set of Cooks Brothers Racing 176Official What is it Worth thread (WIW)-img_4209.jpg RSR's - probably from around 1992ish? They are well used with some of the paint scuffed off. I'd like to sell them, but have no idea what to ask. Any suggestions?

    Thanks,

    Dave

    I have not done a good job of keeping it up - it's on it's last legs so no pictures.

    It was sweet back in the day though, titanium skewers, answer a-tac stem, answer hyperlite bars, sealed bearing hubs, titanium seat rails, rockshock and more. I think it weighed in at about 22 pounds with the shock!!

    I just picked up a set of the same cranks for $75, and the seller included a Klein frame, a Manitou fork, and a bunch of crappy parts for free...but it was my lucky day...normally I'd expect those Cooks to go for around $150.

    Don't be shy with the Klein pics...we all (well most of us anyway) have at least one ugly rider.

    Manitou Three Fork - with elastomers... what's it worth?

    I have no idea what this is worth.

    1 inch steerer 5.5 inches long. 2 inches of thread and extra elastomers.

    almost perfect condition.

    I've sold similar forks on eBay that went to $120, and another set that went to $75. Could go higher or lower depending on whether someone happens to need them for a build at the same time...

    Nope. It's upside down! Too hard to ride.

    The R200 was a lower spec bike, Shimano RSX components. Nothing wrong with RSX, as an entry level group.

    Main issues are whether the thing fits you, and whether it works (ie bearings aren't flogged out, wheels are true and rims not worn, shifting works etc).

    $75 would be getting towards top dollar for me for an RSX equipped bike. 7sp as well, getting a bit harder to find replacement stuff. If you want it to get into road riding, it would be a starting point but if you want it for vintage appeal you could do better.

    Try Road Bike Review, there is a Cannondale board there on the forums.

    At least around here (Portland OR), $75 for any rideable road bike is a great price. I don't think there's any collectible value in the R200, but I remember them being fairly light and quick. Might be a total jackhammer to ride, though... My 7-speed era Cannondale (albeit one of their "tri" frames) was brutal on the hands and wrists. Felt like a fighter jet compared to my Alpinestars mtb, though.

    Here too. Being that they used the same frames throughout the product line it's great deal at $75. As far as ride quality goes...yep it's a jackhammer.
    Zip ties? Not on my bike!

    Want:
    650B rims or wheel set. 80's vintage 32 or 36 x 135mm

    Jackhammer as in C'dale frames of the period had harsh unforgiving rides.

    If all your weight is on your hands, your fit is horrendous, road or mt bike.

    I have a black chrome Sierra MOS I bought new in 1989 or 90. It is pretty much all original other than the rear derailluer was replaced. It went underwater in hurricane sandy up to the seat. Anyone know if its worth fixing it just as a street cruiser? Someone posted the new components wont fit this frame anymore. It probably needs minimum new crankset bearings, front and rear deraillers, cables, chain, hubs cleaned and greased if not shot. Or just sell it as-is if someone has a desire to rebuild it.

    I haven't looked at prices lately and was curious what these have been going for (either complete bike or frame only)?

    Wheel set are Mavic 317's with the old Chris King disc hubs (with adaptors). Parts are a mix of old and new(er) XTR/XT.

    Follow link to complete set of images...

    Thanks in advance!

    Edit... My apologies-it is an Yeti ARCti. I ordered it from the first production run and have owned it since new. Originally purchased from Wheatridge Cyclery. Sorry about that!

    Hi -

    What is a 89 team stumpjumper worth? The bike looks pretty clean and I like the paint job.

    The '89 team Stumpjumper is worth riding for sure. Not too valuable for resale because they made a lot but a fine bike nonetheless.

    The Ti Yeti on the other hand would bring in a few shekels. Its a bit of an odd build for my taste and I wonder if that Fox fork has too much travel for the bike's geometry? But certainly $800 to $1000, could do a little better on Ebay.

    Thanks! That gives me a ball park place to start. As for the Fork, it's 2007 Fox F80. An 80mm fork is exactly what it would've been spec'd for that frame in '01. It was a replacement for the aging Marzocchi atom 80 that was original to the bike.

    Thanks again!

    On second glance I now regret the "odd build" comment, it actually looks kind of sharp. Guess I was thrown by the mix of old and new kit.

    Thanks lewesfoto - the guy was asking $450 which I thought was a lot. I figured it was a $250 bike. The poster never got back to me so I guess it is gone or off to ebay.

    I'll play (custom Fat City Monster)

    Here's my Monster Fat from 1992 or close.

    It's custom via my light weight Yo style fork that's same as the 20th anniversary model. I have pre-historic micro drive via small freewall, short cage XT. I have the original American stem and some WTB Wilderness drops. Original XT thumbshifters, Scott brakes, Bullseye crank and hubs.

    My wife rides this bike for basic exercise on pathways but we hesitate to put it in rough use commuting. She waffles on selling it. I'm not feeling very bike sentimental these days so might sell it. She complains about the old school brakes.

    The monster Fat is probably worth more parted out. Maybe, Bullseye cranks are very valuable depending on condition. I would expect them to sell for at least $150 and maybe as high as $300. Looks like an XT rear derailleur, worth at least $40 if in good condition. Frame set is a common size making it easier to sell, paint looks good, original fork. Not really sure of the value but I would expect it to go pretty high. As a whole bike I would ask $1000 and expect at least $800. I could be wrong, I don't know much about Fats,

    Local listing, why in the name of all things Klein, do so many of them end up like this?

    Bonus though, at least the tires are kinda knobby.

    Price is so through the roof, I figure it's a safe out.

    And, way too small for me, so, what's it actually worth?

    Maybe this thread should have "vintage mountain bike " in the title so that people directed here by search engines have some clue as to the purpose.

    I have a 1989 Ritchey Timber Comp 19 inch bike. I bought it new at MBS in Seattle, which was part of R+E Cycles. I was working in their frame shop temporarily until I landed an engineering job at Boeing. It doesn't get ridden much - it was always a little small for me - and I'm thinking of selling it. It's in excellent shape. Anyone know what I should get for it?

    Well I never did get a good paint job on my Phoenix, and am thinking about trading it off to someone who wants it more than me, so I need to figure out what it's worth. It's a 96 15" V-brake bike S/N 96529, and I'm not sure of the rear spacing. Needs repainted because I botched the paint job after glass beading the frame to bare metal and laying down a nice coat of epoxy primer.

    I've also got a new Titec seat post to go with it, along with other parts that may or may not be useful such as a Kona Project rigid fork, a Surly woodchipper, Salsa 45* stem, a set of 8speed Shimano Ultegra barcons, and a set of 8speed rapid fire shifters - all near new. Bike has had slipping seatpost syndrome, so one of the frame ears has a helicoil in it to accept a bolt.

    I can take photos, but TBH since it's going to need repainted I'm not sure they would even be helpful. The bike was blasted bare and there was no critical damage observed. The reason for stripping the paint to begin with was the steel spiderwebbed under the paint causing it to peel off. The bike has been used but is still in good shape other than the paint. It sat in a closet from 96 to 99 when I got it, then hung in my garage for about 8 years ignored and unridden in the middle of between then and now so it really hasn't been used a lot.

    If anyone wants to guesstimate the value of the frame with or without the parts, it's greatly appreciated.

    I have an early '80 (before 1986) MS racing bike that I would like to find out more about. Mostly white in color with MS logos. I have had it since 1986 and still ride it regularly. Thinking about selling it.
    Anybody have any idea of its value?

    MS Racing produced bikes for one year, 1989. The company morphed into Alpinestars which produced models from 1990 through 1996.

    I'm familiar with the bike. Let's see some pics.

    Hey all,

    I was thinking about buying a new winterproject. I came across a Panasonic MC-8500 from 1990. Is this bike worth buying and what should it cost? It has almost all it's orignal parts (M730,M732 and M735) except seat, rims and shifters.

    Neat! Never knew they jumped into the hybrid construction game too.

    Based on condition, and general lack of interest in the brand as a collector worthy choice, I'd think maybe 100 bucks, hopefully less, and more only if you really want it, and like a good project, lotsa elbow grease required for that puppy.....

    I'd buy it for the fork, if it were cheap enough.

    Well yes it is a fine specimen, Not sure why it has a Fat Chance head badge? If you are selling you would have to itemize the parts on it and present some nice close ups of features. The pedals {suntour comps?} are very sought after. The downside of the bike is that is a small frame {looks more like a 17 inch| that would only fit a small man or a girl. Put it on ebay the right way and who knows you get some good coin.

    1992 Mongoose loop stay Mt Bike

    Got a chance of picking up a complete '92 Looptail IBOC. It's been painted, but I think the components are original. Condition is good.

    So, what's it worth?

    Pics would help since 'good' is pretty subjective. Depends on components and condition, but even best case scenario probably not a whole heck of a lot.

    "Pics would help since 'good' is pretty subjective. Depends on components and condition, but even best case scenario probably not a whole heck of a lot. "

    So, here's the pic. "Not a whole heck of a lot." is pretty subjective also, and doesn't answer my question.

    There was a whole thread on these bikes. Seriously rare. Back in the day owners loved them.

    Sad that some great old Mongoose rides made by an American company have gotten a bad rap due to selling out to the Pacific **** mongers. But in their defense they still sponsor a competitive cycling team and make a world class bike under the Mongoose name

    No reason to get sh%#ty with Nate. That's still a crap pick of a mid range bike from an era that doesn't garner a ton of interest from this crowd. Rare doesn't make something valuable or collectable.

    If it's a solid, Deore level bike in 7-8 condition, I'd say $200-$225 round these parts max. Lesser spec-condition=less money.

    Even before the sale to Pacific it still was just another Taiwanese mid grade bike (which have ~zero collector value) as far as I knew. I've yet to see the devoted fan base and thread for these but maybe I missed it.

    I can see the no collector value. The issue of perceived value for a utilitarian bike is what doesn't make sense. Not when 90% of all the bikes at the time were made in the same factories in Taiwan. Not when Mongoose was doing very innovative designs with triangulated tubes, composites and Ti.

    Given I'd much rather find a nice lugged 970 or a Waterford. But I've been offered hundreds for my 1987 Paramount Series 20 Mt bike Made in China and I can sell Chro-Mo Treks all day made in the same Chinese factories. Truth is much lesser bikes sell for more and faster than the Mongoose frames that make some sweet bikes.

    You don't have to understand it, but it's how it is.

    Hell, I have a 96 Kona Lava Dome. Really, really mid range. Nothing exciting about it to a collector at all. It is, at best, a curio for anyone who has never seen a fully rigid bike with 21 speeds and cantilever brakes being ridden in anger. I love it because it let's me get my retro on without worrying about dinging up a vintage Ritchey or something (not that I own one). And I ride it a lot.

    But I'm not gonna kid myself that it's collectable and I'm not going to get butt-hurt if someone thinks that it's worth bugger-all dollars.

    I have a thing for looptails so I think it has additional cool value in that. If I was looking for a townie/beater bike and it was fully functioning I might pay $100-125. But I'd likely tear it apart and make it a cruiser looking ride

    Recently picked up a Rocky Mountain DH Race bike. It hasn't been ridden for years, seller had the bike in storage. Everything still looks in good shape. Plan on getting it tuned up, is worth getting work done on it? Also, the bike is apparently signed by Wade Simmons but haven't confirmed. Is it worth anything if I leave as is?

    Sorry, I am not familiar with those bikes or the person claimed to have signed that one. If that bike is newer than 1996, this is probably not the right place to ask because the expertise here in this vintage forum covers mountain bikes built 1996 and prior. Good luck!

    I know this one is vague, but i dont have a ton of info as I'm trying to not seem too eager to the seller. I recently found someone selling some older frames, one is a Fat Chance Ti in very , very good shape for $1100, a ( 90-92)Yo Eddy for $250 (paint is rough but a repaint would make it great, small dent on underside of down tube by bb), and $200 for the original fork, and a nice steel IF (2001, 26", pre disc brake) for $450. Do these seem like reasonable prices, or am I just willing to pay a lot cause i"m excited to get one? I'm not looking to flip them, I just want an older piece of history to build (and obviously my gunnar is just too new). Thanks in advance!

    Buy the fork for 200, sell it to me for 205, buy yourself a Big Mac and enjoy.

    So over the past 24 hours I've seen more classic bikes I could imagine. I found a really cool Muddy Fox "courier mega", it's early 90's, foreign, and fluorescent yellow. Anyone ever ride one of these?

    As is it's not worth much. If it is in fact Wade's yes it is an important bike worth something just because he used to own it. You should ask him he is very approachable and would be interested as well.

    Sorry, I should have moved that part to a more general question area. I'm not really looking for a value, as it's only worth what I'm willing to pay, lol.

    Anyone know the value of a 84/85 fat chance? Original bar stem combo, box crown fork, grips, looked to be everything, even stickers and original paint, in very, very good shape? What would be a good price for this?

    The owner asked that no pictures be posted publicly, if there is someone here who is an expert I'd share a pic with them.

    Many guys on here can give you estimates, but a pic really helps. Condition, size, and originality all make a big difference in price.

    Many people claim that there bike is 100% original but this is best confirmed with pics. People often forget that the replaced the drivetrain after 5 years of use. I've found many "original" bikes to be far from it. Also my idea of "good condition" and your idea of "good condition" can be completely different.

    What size is it? Small and large sizes have less demand therefore have less value.

    That said it could be $400 to $1000+ based on condition, size, and originality.
    Each bicycle owned exponentially increases the probability that none is working correctly.

    On CL for $80. I don't really know anything about American eagle bikes, but looks to be in good condition and I dig the brakes.

    "First Olympic Champion-Mdl Durango-ALU 7005 Superlight Frame-Magura Brakes-Race Face Forged Cranks-24 Speed-Grip Shifters- Manitou Shocks-Panaracer Red Wall Tires-Snap/Click in Pedals-Very Good Condition-Very Reliable-Custom Bike."

    Any thoughts if this is a good buy for $80 or is this not a very unique bike?

    I would assume after not making the playoffs, with that decal on there, the seller should be paying you.

    Not a sought after frame. Should be able to part it for your investment.
    Seek: Koski Trailmaster. Breezer Series 2 or 3. Cunningham Racer.

    New question here. 1990 Klein Pinnacle

    This bike also has serial number on left dropout. It is R5DF5 with the Klein K logo before the numbers, and on the right dropout 35 is stamped as well. In a couple pictures you can see the outline of the Klein logo decal under the front water bottle cage area. The forks are original but handlebars and stem look to be a replacement.
    Components;
    XT Derailleurs and Pedals
    SUN TL18 Wheels with Acera Hubs
    LX Brakes with APSE Levers
    Gripshift MAX Shifters

    I know this is not a tri-color adept or adroit but curious as to value anyway. Thanks!

    1991 Rocky Mountain

    Hi all,
    Glad to find and join this community of bike-lovers!
    I have this bike I haven't ridden in over 15 years. Wondering if I should fix it up, or sell it to someone who has more time and energy to appreciate it. Thoughts?

    Welcome aboard!

    That's a nice older Rocky for sure.

    The question is really, do you have a passion for it as an object of an older era, and you'd like to relive that a bit, or, are you not really looking to hit the trails anymore, and just need something to get back in shape with?

    15+ years changed your body, the way the bike fits and rides, hasn't changed a bit.

    You may love it, or it may kill your aching bones.

    I'd say air it up, lube the chain, see if it'll ride around the block as is, if so, and it;s fun, hit a local trail or two.

    If the smiles come right back, sure, plow into restoring as much as suits your needs.

    If you decide it sucks and you want to dump it, I'm sure if you buy a $2 classified ad and post the link as a new thread on this board, someone will jump at it.

    I'm sure others will be along shortly with values, not too much to go on with the one pic, but I'd say, shot from the hip, very little knowledge of finer details on that particular bike, $500 to $800 is not out of line, the higher end being if everything is in decent mechanical and cosmetic shape.

    Thanks for the welcome! Good points as well! These old bones of mine can no longer take any kind of fall (in a race or downhill) LOL! I'll most likely clean it up and sell it.

    I just confirmed I have the 1990 model from the RMB 1990 Catalogue. Here's a picture of it from 1991 catalogue, where it is pretty much the same:

    That stumpjumper was the first mass produced mtb's thousands sold many still around so not so rare little value. Because of its age the brake levers and canti brakes brakes were all you could buy back then for off road so collectors strip bikes like this to build up/restore handbuilt frames of the same epoch.

    John T signature Raleigh

    Saw this on my local craigslist. Guy is asking $395 which I think is high for most used classic MTBs, but the bike does have nice components, is in my size and was designed by John Tomac as it says on the top tube. The bike does look rather used however.

    Anyone know what this bike frame is made out of? Also, it has a suspension fork on it, but I am thinking it came with a rigid and that fork was added. Anyone know the year of the bike and what is a good price for it? Thanks

    This board deals mostly with vintage MTB's, and the occasional oddball roadie with MTB connections or something along those lines.

    That said, there's better boards (like say on, roadbikereview.com) for a more nuanced answer.

    Can't quite make out the stamp on the rear dropouts, but it looks like a Schwinn "star" badge.

    Older 600, not in the best of shape from the looks of it. If all's working well, perfectly functional weekend roadie if it fits. If selling? Maybe a couple hundred (like 2), tops. It's had a rough life.....

    2002 GT Backwoods

    I just paid $100 for this 2002 GT Backwoods, clean, really good shape.
    I have a little project in mind, the only thing I really wanted was the frame, I'm 6ft tall, 230Lbs needed something that was strong enough to carry me around and for what I understand GT's triple triangle design is exactly what I would need.

    What do you guys think?

    Nice I was thinking of making it a solid fork get some nice road tires. And ride it that way go 3x7 freewheel and just use it. As I took the fork that was on off. And I dont think I could get much for it.

    Value on a 1982 or 83 Ross Force 1?

    Someone asked me to sell their 1982 or 83 Ross Force 1 for them. The bike is mostly original, and is mint. I can list it on Ebay and take my chances, but since I am selling it for someone else, I'd like to have a good idea of the what the bike might be worth before listing it. Thanks in advance!

    With that Ross, I'd put it on ebay and take your chances. If you put it on CL, not sure how many people would be interested. They aren't a high demand bike, so only a limited number of people would be interested. Oh, and with that size, you're limited to a sasquatch.

    Put it at $99 and let it run.

    I looked at a Ross a while back, same model and color, similar condition, but 21". It was $65.

    CycleJce is actually probably correct. I'd try it on ebay at the $99 since it has a bigger exposure and if it doesn't sell, I'd donate it to a charity and maybe your tax deduction would be worth $65.

    Need help pricing '89 Bridgestone MB3

    Ok, here's the scoop. My daughter's class had a rummage sale and there was the above mentioned Bridgestone. I own one and love it(will never sell it!), and I also know there's "interest" in them. I asked "how much" and the girl said $15!! Being the honest, ethical mom that I am...I just couldn't buy it outright. I told her I'd sell it for the class and hopefully get more than $15. How much should I ask for it? Mostly original, but some newer parts. I can take pics and post later. Also, where should I advertise for best market? Here? Craigslist?

    Welcome aboard!

    The 3 isn't one of the higher end models, but does have "the name" behind it.

    Without pics etc, tough to say much beyond $50 to $150 based on condition etc.

    You can advertise it on MTBR by purchasing a $2 classified ad, you can post a link to it here in it's own thread, and it will be locked, but allowed to die a natural death off the bottom of the page, so it'll get decent eyeball traffic.

    CL will likely get a bunch of low ballers, but will allow you to dump it easily, locally.

    eBay will get you more eyes, but comes with fees, shipping hassles etc, for a bike that really isn't worth a whole lot...

    Post some pics if you want more detail.

    I have a set of Sram 8 speed ESP Grip Shifters. Sram had no real presence in Australia with 8 speed, but I hate chucking things away that are perfectly new in box like these are.

    The problem is that the postage overseas is about $40AUD and I have to wonder whether or not it prohibits selling them. Please don't see this as spam. I am happy to advertise them in the classifieds here, but have to wonder if it is worth it, or if there is demand in a country where they are possibly readily available and if so, what do they cost there?

    Cheers.

    nuke proof ti hubset

    Hi all,



    First post on these pages. Finally found the vintage page and am reliving my early married days. Back when I could go to races and still have money to buy new parts.

    I'm parting out my first custom build mtb. I've got a pair of nuke proof titanium hubs in purple ano.

    Both spin beautifully. The rear engages well but has a bunged up spacer. The front unfortunately has 6 hairline or less cracks. I have no idea how long I rode it like that. But I only weigh 130 so it could have been years.

    I've searched for a while but have yet to see another pair like them. They were purchased from the rep at the races in Big Bear, Ca. in 1993. I doubt they are one-off but they do seem exceedingly rare.

    Any ideas on value? Thanks in advance, Greg

    hi all. new guy here. looking to get into the sport. i now realize i shouldve posted this here to begin with. the link is the long version. text is the short. thanks.

    http://forums.mtbr.com/specialized/h...on-950567.html

    im looking into a early 90s specialized rockhopper sport. it looks super clean in the pics. havent gone to see it yet. its supposedly a 17" frame from crank to top of seat post which should fit from the research ive done. its nicely regarded choromoly frame which is nice. i like the different handle options. i think it looks nice. has a rigid fork which i would prefer from research ive done. my knowledge is limited and id take it to a local bike shop for a tune up.

    is it worth $150? anyone guess what year it is?

    Looks to be in decent condition but if you keeps your eyes peeled you most certainly find a Stumpjumper with higher end parts for around the same money.

    Both spin beautifully. The rear engages well but has a bunged up spacer. The front unfortunately has 6 hairline or less cracks. I have no idea how long I rode it like that. But I only weigh 130 so it could have been years.
    I've searched for a while but have yet to see another pair like them. They were purchased from the rep at the races in Big Bear, Ca. in 1993. I doubt they are one-off but they do seem exceedingly rare.
    Any ideas on value? Thanks in advance, Greg
    The purple definitely makes them pretty uncommon. However, they share the common trait of nearly all NP Ti hubs...cracks. It's only a matter of time before the rear fails too.
    Hard to say on value. Maybe $100 because it's Ti and the color...but they're really only for display now...so don't expect to make a killing.

    Rockhopper

    Found this Rockhopper on CL and am going to see it tomorrow.

    Looks like it actually might be the same model as the one redemn93 posted above. This guy is asking $200 but from the pics it doesn't seem like it's worth that.

    I don't know what size it is, but I had him measure the standover height and it was 29.5" I'm 6 feet so I'm worried it might be a bit small?

    Any advice on what I should look for when I go see the bike in person? Thanks!

    1991 Cannondale SE2000

    I'm the original owner. It's in very good to excellent condition and mostly stock except for the Rock Shox MAG21s and rigid stem. I still have the original fork but not the Girvin Flex stem.

    I bought two partial build frames (rolling chassis +), plus a bunch of other random parts in a bulk purchase a few months back, $400.

    Yours is complete, looks to be in decent shape but definitely used, I'd guess, for the right buyer, 3 to 5 bills should be a fair estimate.

    I know nothing about bikes. Can you telll me what this Panasonic Pro ATB is worth?

    I'm guessing the bike is probably around 25 years old. Is this "vintage" bike worth anything? What do you think I could I realistically sell it for?Official What is it Worth thread (WIW)-pan-mb.jpg

    Here ya go. I put the bar ends in actual ridable position and snapped this pic just for you before removing them completely and adjusting the seat angle.

    All original except the saddle, and in great shape. I can't believe how good of shape the tires are in. This bike was not used much which I don't understand because it rides really nice. I am pretty excited about it right now. Think I'll post a few more pics in the official bridgestone thread.

    There is a 1983 or 84 Trek 850 on my local CL. The bike looks 100% original, pretty good shape from the photos, Reynolds 531 tubing. Seems to be a pawn shop maybe. He's firm at $200.

    What say you?

    If it's fully original down to the saddle, tires, and grips...$200 would be fair. Depends on how long and hard you've been looking for a mid-80's Trek. If you've always wanted one badly or you have a project desperate for the parts, then the $200 could still be worth it. If you just want a vintage mtb, you can get better for your $200 IMO.

    You gotta at least post a pic for us to get a good idea, but as rumpfy said, if it's original and in really good shape, then that price is fair. As far as being able to get a "better" bike for that price, not so sure, but you might be able to find a more collectible bike for that price. I think trek made more 850 model mtb's then any other in the 80's. But regardless, if your looking for quality, it's a lugged, American made bike with good steel from a top quality builder. If in good condition and you like the geo, compare it to what a new quality American made lugged Reynolds 531 steel frame would cost. Your not going to find a frame like that for anywhere near $200, let alone a complete bike.

    Also, if it's Reynolds steel then it's not an '83 since they used tange in '83. I saw this one on flea bay and if I was looking for a new build and found one like it in excellent shape with original parts included as well, then I would have a hard time not buying it for $200. It looks pretty sweet.

    That noise you heard was the collective gasp of a bunch of this forums bike collectors. Nice collection! Are you going to keep them or sell them off? Those are some beautiful bikes from the golden era of mountain bike development. Singularly unique and definitive of a special time.

    Unfortunately I'm thinking of selling them to help pay for school so i'm testing the waters to find out what they're worth. I'd like to see them go to someone who can appreciate them and maybe even get them into riding shape again.

    I'm not selling yet, just looking to find the value of the bikes. Any further input into that venture would be greatly appreciated.

    Definitely understand, wish I could support your schooling but alas my money is going to living in seattle instead. Make sure to follow the rules if you are selling, Girlonbike doesn't mess around in here.

    Fisher Prometheus

    My old buddy is thinning his herd, am looking for a starting $ for this bike on Craigslist or eBay,.
    Any-almost all suggestions are appreciated:...


    Fisher Prometheus Titanium - Ti 3 Al / 2.5 V frame - Size 20" C to C.
    Serial Number # F20028 - one of 500 built.
    Bike is equipped w/ a Fisher Evolution headset @ 1 1/4 inches.
    Frames were fabricated by Sandvik Special Metals (SSM) in Kennewick, Washington through their Titanium Sports Sandvik Titanium (TST) sports division...
    Fisher was the first bicycle company to have frames & accessories - stem & bars produced through Sandvik. The company's initial venture into "sports equipment" was their introduction of shafts for golf clubs & then ski poles. Ultimately they produced frames for numerous other well known MTB companies + made tubing available for fabricators in the business as well as producing light weight wheelchair frames.

    This particular one owner bike was owned & put together by Stephen J.R. Wilde who worked as a designer for the Gary Fisher Bicycle Company.
    Wilde is known for designing, along with various Fisher Bikes parts & componentry of the late '80's, early '90's , the Fisher Alembic, one of the first carbon fiber, full suspension MTB frames (w/ a Mert Lawill 4 pivot rear suspension) which unfortunately met it's demise before it ever went into production when that iteration of Fisher's company folded.

    Titanium Parts ---
    Stem - Sandvik Titanium @ 135 mm length w/ medium rise.
    Bars - Sandvik Titanium flat bar w/ 3 degree bend. Length - 21 inches
    Bar ends - Onza Titanium - from the awesome Danny Sotelo
    Seat Post - Control Tech custom fabricated Titanium post w/ Control Tech aluminum head created as a gift for Wilde.
    There are a number of Titanium bolts throughout including White Industries Titanium bottom bracket bolts.

    Fork ---
    Rock Shox Judy XC (Yellow)
    This fork would need to be serviced / rebuilt (perhaps new seals) as the bike has literally not been ridden in 14 years but it worked well at that time.

    Drivetrain ---
    Campagnolo final & best MTB gruppo @ 24 speed - 3 front, 8 rear
    Includes front & rear derailleurs + top mount bar shifters.
    Crankset - Campagnolo MTB @ 175 mm length in powder coat Grey.

    Brakes ---
    Grafton aluminum - silver finish equipped w/ Avid "tri-dangle" brake cable hangers.
    Brake Levers ---
    Ritchey Logic Brake Levers in Black.

    Saddle ---
    Selle Italia Flite - Trans Am Max

    Hubs ---
    Campagnolo - Front 32 spoke - Campagnolo skewer - (caveat emptor) - front hub has broken flange. Would obviously need to be replaced.
    Rear 32 spoke - Ringle skewer.

    Rims ---
    Front - Campagnolo 32 hole
    Rear - Matrix "Single Track ATB Comp" - 32 hole

    Tires ---
    Michelin Wildgripper Lite S
    Specific front & rear designs.
    This bike hasn't been ridden in 14 years but the tires were brand new at the time & the rubber looks to be in great shape...ie: no cracks.
    I'd suggest new tubes.

    Pedals ---
    Time MTB's (original model) - if needed, please specify...otherwise not included.

    Bottle Cages ---
    Steel, generic.

    This bike is custom "decaled" as a FISH-HEAD, which played of an "in" joke at the time. Fisher bikes of that era had a seat-tube decal of a rider crossed up, catching air taken from a photo (of Greg Herbold, actually) but rather than his head as would be normal, he had a Sailfish head grafted on. Why ? Only Gary knows.
    Wilde went with the FISH-HEAD logo idea as a full logo because at the time, he & Fisher looked enough alike that whilst out riding, too many people assumed he was Gary simply because the bike said Fisher on it, so the FISH-HEAD logo proved to change that particular dynamic.
    If a buyer did an on-line search, he might be able to find original transfers which were black & gold w/ the "Gary Fisher" name & a profile of Mt Tamalpais on that model.


    This Is an original owner bike that for the most part, is in excellent shape as Wilde always maintained it's working componentry.
    This Fisher Prometheus has not been ridden in 14 years.
    As mentioned, a new front hub is required & the Judy XC fork would need servicing / rebuilding as in perhaps replacing the seals simply due to age but other than that, with a simple overhaul, this bike would be trail ready. I'd suggest putting a non-suspension fork on it for a real old school look & ride.
    Wilde initially rode it with a Sandvik built Titanium straight fork but their fork / handling awareness was limited at the time & it proved to have exceeding flex under braking.

    1990 Bridgestone MB-1

    It seems a 1990 Bridgestone MB-1 is for sale in my area. The only picture available indicates it may be in pretty 'rough' shape. The guy selling admits it has slept outside for the past year and a half, but insists it's all original. He's asking $200. The seller is about an hour away from me. Although I haven't looked it over in person, what would be a reasonable offer?

    Gary Fisher Hoo Koo E Koo

    I have a Gary Fisher Hoo Koo E Koo that was my first mountain bike. I have since upgraded to a new bike and want to sell this one. I know these are decent bikes, but not sure where to start as far as selling it. I want to make sure it ends up with someone who can appreciate a good bike.

    Can anyone help me out with the following?
    - How do I determine what year it is? I think it might be a '98 based on some other pictures, but not sure how to confirm.
    - The frame is in decent shape, but it needs some work in other areas. How much could I get for it?
    - Should I sell it on ebay or Craig's List? Any other options?

    Thanks!

    I've gotta say Sully, I've never seen one of these sell. I've seen at least a half dozen or more pop up over the years with each owner thinking it was worth a fortune...never a sale.
    There was a frame only for sale at a Cupertino Bike Swap a few years back at $500 with no takers. Campy build an a neat backstory/history helps, but with the busted front hub and Judy, I think you're looking at $1k or less.

    Depends on if you're looking to move them quick or get to dollar. Hopefully the ARC isn't cracked. Check the headtube and seatbinder closely.

    Yup, sorry it's not worth more for your buddy. If it catches the right person's attention, you might get lucky. Consider cross posting it in the Classic mtb trading center fbook group?

    Need help Finding what model and year my GT is and WIW

    Hey guys this is my first post here, got recommended by a friend to post to this forum so here I am!

    So about the bike I got it about 6 years ago from a friend that recently got a new bike and just sold me this one for cheap so I can ride with him. But since then its been sitting on the side of my house for the last 3-4 years. I totally forgot about it until i had to clean out my yard and saw it under a bunch of bushes. So the last couple days I have cleaned it up by putting a new chain on it and some cheap grips (the other ones ripped apart) and a new seat, and washed it. Bike rides good the tires are still good just took it on a local trail and it did great! So i came here because the only thing I really know about it is that its a GT. And I want to sell it so if you guys can help me and tell me WIW and whats the model and year it is.

    Thanks and i can upload more pics if needed!

    Any thoughts on what this Marin is worth? Been watching it on my local CL for a few weeks. Seller dropped from a $200 firm to $140 with original parts only and $180 with plastic pedals, plastic water bottle cages and plastic seat included. Not interested in the plastic downgrades so I would be looking at $140.

    I think it is a mid level Marin made in Taiwan, but it's the paint job that I like. Comes with original touch up paint also, which I've never seen with a used bike.

    Klein Adroit

    Hi all,

    I have a Klein Adroit that I'd like to sell and need help with pricing. Not sure how to post pics but based on the Klein lettering the bike is most likely from 92-98. It has Rock fork and some Botanger and Shimano components

    Bid higher guys, it's got Rock forks and Botanger components, after all!

    I'd prefer Poontanger components but that would push it out of my price range.

    Could cut the frayed bit off and call it a new front gear cable. I'll trade you a 2015 Giant catalog if the Klein falls through.

    You guys are crackin' me up here!

    OP, welcome, you're plainly new, we all were once. There is a what's it worth thread (see the top thread on the page), it's for this sort of question. Posting as you did, is local taboo, and if you plan on selling and using these pages to assist you, forum rules require you to buy a $2 classified ad, which you can post the link to, which acts as spam pass. Right now, whether you meant to or not, you're simply fishing for buyers by starting your own post on the subject.

    Post there for better results and info, but I'd highly suggest you don't continue to provoke my personal pet peeve of owning an object that you wish to sell, yet, even with the words right in front of you, spelled correctly and everything, persisting in spelling things incorrectly.

    No one wants to buy your Chevi Maliboo, your Aplle laptop, or meet you at Straboks for coffee.......

    Avalanche maybe? Possibly even lower end than that. A 'blem' frame to boot. I think you'll struggle to get $100 for it.

    Cool that touch up paint is included. Never seen that before either. Still doesn't change the fact that this is pretty low end. $140 doesn't seem unfair given that it looks pretty clean/not faded.
    $100 bike to me though.

    As I said (amongst other suggestions) post this in the WIW (what's it worth) thread, you'll get a far more helpful response because it's where it's supposed to be.

    I would however, come with correct spelling, as it makes you look like you respect, and care about that which you're choosing to discuss.

    And yes, the crew here can bat a newbie around a little bit, learn and grow, and all's good. Get all bent out of shape, and it just makes it worse. Just like grade school......

    Cool bike, way before my time though. Not really intersted in buying it but thought I would share and was curious what others thought the price of something like this should go for. Seller is asking $860.

    Optimistic asking price for that particular model. If it was a Tom Ritchey built Fisher Competition...then he could maybe see that number.

    New question here. Early Schwinn Homegrown 94

    I have a early Homegrown from a racing buddy of mine years back. Found frame #s HS7136. I know for a fact it is at least 95. While I was searching I found a small crack on the top of steer tube. I think its been cracked for a long time. Is this a common?
    I am just pulling out of the closet for a full tune up.

    Any idea how to determine if it is a 94 or pre 94 it was custom painted in Niwot Colorado by Rainbow cycle craft.
    Could it be earlier since it went strait to one on the schwinn expert team?

    I am wondering what it may be worth?

    Unfortunately relatively common for those frames to develop cracks, every one of them my friends have had over the years cracked in some place at some point. They were ridden hard though.

    With the crack I would say that it is mainly worth the value of the parts. Its a shame so many of them have met their maker over the years. I do not like aluminum frames at all but those were a very nice riding bike.
