Sorry!

I think I should have put this request in here! javascript:emoticon(':oops:')

I have the option to buy a 1997 Specialised Ground Control A1 and I need to have some idea of what to offer without offending.

I don't have any photos of the actual bike yet (soon hopefully) but it is very much like the attached in colour scheme and equipment. I think this one went for around £200.

If anyone has any ideas I would be really grateful! :D

A friend put me onto this site.
I cant find anything about the particular model.
I have had it for around ten years and bought it used.
The frame is blue with Offroad and Sport on it.
There is a label on it that says "Guarenteed built with LT. WT. competition quality 4130 Butted 3 main tubes"
Another label says made in Taiwan
The forks are white and on each is "CR-MO 4130"
It has paddle type gears "STI Shimano total integration"
The flexstem just says on it "flexstem offroad"
The handlebar grips have a "Ritchey" logo indented in them.

You might be able to tell that I'm no expert.

It's not in mint condition some surface rust in a couple of places but looks restorable and it rides fine.

I'm hoping to be told it's very rare! but I would like to know how much it might be worth. I've bought a new bike so it has to go
Any advice welcome please.
I can post photos soon when I've wiped it down


Here are the photos, a ball park figure would be great and I can put it in the classifieds here or on Ebay

Hi all,

Wondering what the value of this fork might be. I'm the original owner and it's from a 20" Klein Attitude in moonrise linear fade. My Attitude was also equipped from the factory with a painted-to-match RockShox Mag 21SL and was unfortunately stolen. I've had this other fork in a box and am considering selling it in the quest of getting another rigid fork Klein MTB. The fork has NO dents, NO scratches - it has never even had a quick release clamp the dropouts. Thanks in advance for your advice.

Jeff

sorry to ask this, i have tried searching on here but to no avail.

my mate said to ask on here as this is the place where the people have knowledge onions.

i am selling these 2 forks, how much should i be asking (more interested in the manitous), both would probably benefit from a service i guess, the mantiou answer4's are 'living in the shed' condition, the judys are pretty good but a few years old, i would have thought by now such an item would need a service.

all i know for certain is that the elastomers on the manitous are fairly solid but there is some travel still, atleast 1"+.

thanks!

OK what do you guys reckon on these value wise. I want to sell them but as I do not know what to ask for them I would not be able to put a price in the for sale posting.

1990 Fire Mountain

1989 Cindercone

Late 90's Specialized Rockhopper A1 FS

I'm interested in opinions for these bikes

I would imagine but i may be way off the mark

if you have original parts to put back on

FMountain - £300

CCone - £350

RH - £ no idea

I might be a bit optimistic

Hi, Can anyone give me a ballpark figure on the Offroad sport ? (full post and photo's above)
I'd really like to put it in the classifieds here rather than ebay but can't without a price.
As far as I can gather its one of the first c 1988 ?
