Yeah, I know I'll never come close to breaking even. Still, it's probably one of the most original examples in existence, so I'd hate to break it up.

Oh well, it's not like I am forced to let it go due to financial reasons or anything. I just can't ride it without severe pain in my back.
If it sits in the For Sale section for months, that's fine with me.


Curious for any trades? Just curious :oops:

any ideas what i presume to be a very tatty, crappily painted orange P7 frame is worth with pace rc36 evo forks on. Forks seem to function fine and are in good nick, one sticker is a little faded. The frame has the wishbone looking seat stay and a e-type mech???
will get pics up later today just wanted an idea

i got it for the forks but realised when i got home they are 1inch doh!!

I imagine its worth pretty much what you paid for it complete.

Frame and forks £120-140.

You could always get some reducer cups.

Hi, i am interested in peoples opinions on the value of this bike.

I am turning my back on modern and concentrating on my simple, retro builds.

I know Giant bikes are often considered a little dull so here goes :D

Its a 2008 Giant Terrago Disc, condition of the frame etc is very good only a few scratches from storage. It is stock apart from an almost new Avid Elixer 3 rear brake, big bad ass saddle and some carbon bar ends.

Sell as a whole of sell for parts ???

A few issues it has could easily be fixed with some mechanical skills and your parts bin.

Rear brake needs a bleed, as i adjusted the wrong screw :oops:
Front brake works fine but they have a habit of seizing
Cassette has a rumble
I would replace chain as a routine.

Hi guys, I'm looking to purchase a new full suspension bike after being told my trusty steed needs a new rear wheel.
The old beast is a 99 Marin B17 pretty much standard apart from a hope brake upgrade. It has not had a huge amount of use over the years but does have a few marks and scratches (mainly from being in storage for a few years). The guy at my local bike shop commented on how the swingarm and headset etc are all in good shape with no play and the only real problem I have had is a creak from the crank area which was not cured by the new bb that was installed Sad.
So what do you guys think its worth?
Cheers Dave
