Hi,

i've been stroking the old goat for a while now!
Frame is to big for me really,
i have been thinking about selling the frame to fund a merlin,
which is what i've always wanted.

She is not in the best of condition,
Some bad chips and scratches also a small ding in the seat tube.

What do you think?

I have just got an 1989/90 Alpine LX 26" wheel bike. Have a look at http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewto ... 22#1136222 to see my first thread on it.
I'd just like an idea of the value of the whole bike or just frame/fork/stem as those are the nice bits. :-)
Thanks

Hi,

first post

just came accross this site whilst looking for whether my old rockhopper is worth anything.

i think its about 1997
its a small,
steel frame (nitaniun tubing)
its like a nickel colour
ridgid forks
trigger shifts

i have changed a few parts (forks, seat post, grips etc) but i still have all the original bits in full working order.
the bike is absolutly mint, it still had the original tyres and brake pads and stickers.

i have been toying with the idea of selling it and buying something newer and lighter!

any info would be great

cheers

russ

Hi all,
As you can see I'm a newbie so please be gentle with me :wink:

Some random chat with buds on our Sunday outings has lead me to this site. My lovely Mrs arranged for me to get a new MTB for my 40th and I'm thinking what to do with my trusty old steed, a 92 Dawes Edge LX.

Had the mighty Dawes from new & over the years has changed a fair bit BUT, I've kept all the original parts and have put them all back on. Think the only alteration from original is, that in a moment of madness, I cut the massive bar ends down to a reasonable size.

Million dollar question ~ Any idea on it's value? Being nearly 20 years old, it has a few light scrapes, but no dings or rust. Also, very slight buckle in the rear wheel rim. If I though it worth enough, it'll be up for sale (really need to free the space up, but need to satisfy my conscience :oops: )

Thanks in advance for the help

Looks in good condition, if you split it things will fly out, to get prices for individual bits you can do a quick search on here or ebay,
As a full bike then a lot less, say 200 to 300 quid.
