Not bitchy, just honest.

You said it was early nineties, I say late 90s. You said it cost £8000, we said it was unlikely to have cost more than a couple grand when new, that's all the parts would have cost new. You said an expert bike shop reckon its worth £5000 we say £500. You came in here with a closed mind expecting people to buy your bike for thousands and then you'd be off never to be heard of again, we don't want to at your price.

I love new members joining but if you're only reason was to tell a bunch of stories to sell a bike then you wont be missed when you leave. If you came here to get a better knowledge of a bike that you obviously know nothing about then pull up a chair and sit and listen with open ears.

Hi all :D

Any ideas on the value of a pair of NOS Shimano Deore XT 'deer head' front and rear mechs?
The front is still in it's original box. ( with instructions ) and marked FD - M700
The rear is unboxed but has never been used. Marked FD-M700

Can add pics tomorrow.

Thanks in advance.

I know there is some kona mtb fans on here so after some advice,
I have a 2001 mini mula which i have owned since new,the bike has hardly been used and has been stored away for most of its life.
the bike is in really good condition and has only ever been used on-road and light trails,
its completely standard apart from the dx pedals but still have the spds.
even the tires are the originals!!
I have been told that these are quite rare now and was wondering how much it is worth?

I think that's a tad unfair to be honest.

However the delivery..we have suggested that the figures quoted to you are either unrealistic or false and if your expectation was inline with the figures then you ultimately will be unhappy

I've just looked back through ebay and in here re san andreas's and I didn't realise just how many new members join asking for supersillious prices only never to be seen again once they realise the gold they thought they had was infact gold plated.

As pointed out a frame set this year reached £250..a full bike last summer reached £595? but even then was sold to a chap over at bike radar as most in here knew it was top top money for the bike and they were lucky to find that buyer

I'm glad you decided to sell it on ebay allthough I feel it will remain with you for some time but again I hope you find the buyer your looking for.Just infront of christmas suprisingly isn't the best time but possibly april may as the sun comes out again or even february when people eat too much then decide to become fit . A priced to sell san is still about £350-£500 I feel depending on how long you want to hold on for that special buyer.

Again..sorry you feel the site is bitchy but I have to correct you that it is not but understand your wish for a price and the price that it actually is, has given you an opinion that you have reflected upon the site..which I feel is slightly uncalled for and missplaced

Good luck with your sale

First of all it looks fantastic.

But late 90 early 00s konas, especially aluminium dont seem to hold a lot fo value. As its a minter i'd say £250 but might be lower.

Good luck with the sale.
