Hi there

New here, guess this is the place to find out a bit about this bike I was given a little while ago. Assumed it was oldish so this seems the place.

It's an Orange Aluminium 'O' serial no: A10602249
Colour orange and white, with bright yellow Girvin flexstem and Mavic headset.
Condition is clean with no corrosion but with some stone chips on underside.
I have read in other post about these serial no. so I assume it's a 1991, is there any value or rarity in this?

Many Thanks

ed: Hope this was posted roughly in the right place, I know sloppy posting can be infuriating to the forum aficionados.

ed ed: There is a sticky above for this, I just noticed. Sorry. : /

Frames are not rare or particularly valuble. People do want them though.
Mavic headset if the bearing races are good and it is in good condition is probably worth as much as the frame.
Pictures work best.

Follow the above links for price ranges but a search in the sale section might do better. That is if you're not keeping it.

The orange and white paint scheme is unusual to have survived - they had problems with paint flaking and many were recalled and resprayed.
