Hello, i found a Marin Bear Valley SE frame, wich in think it's 93, the owner says it has a stuck seat post, is it reasonably buy at aprox. 30 pounds? (40 with shipping)?

It is very cheap with shipping cost, need some service but the frame looks nice. The seat post is stuck but with some fine oil and patience will come out.

There is lot of rust. That frame has been abandoned for many years.

It's a nice frame, but £40 is certainly a full figure. I recently sold a repainted Pine Mountain frame on ebay for £5.50. :(

Bearing in mind the other bits you get, it's not bad value, but it isn't the deal of the century either. The chainset is much later, for example.
