I originally purchased this GT Karakoram (triple triangle) around 1994.

It cost around £800 new which I purchased from J E James cycles in Sheffield. For the first 10 or so years of its life it was stuck in my garage not being used. Then It was used for a couple of years before being covered up again until 2 years ago. Since then I have used it to commute to work (around 8 miles a day)

Its in pretty good nick and just needs 2 new tires and a good service. Everything on the bike is still original, even the tires :)

Wanting around £150 for it if anyone is interested.

A friend is having a clearout and wants to move on his old Kona Explosif frame. Naturally he wants a fair price for it and so has asked me to sell it on for him, so before it hit’s the classifieds what’s it worth for this 853 frame?

Frame size is 19” C-T, 16” C-C. Cosmetic condition isn’t fantastic as it had a couple of dings to the chain stays and a small dent in the down tube, the paint is chipped in many places. However it has had no cracks or repairs and I’m certain it will ride superb.

Looking for a value on some Hope bits.

I have a pair of brakes, they have a number 3 on the callipers. Look in OK condition but need a bleed or service, can't be sure. Best to list as spares or repair?

I also have this unknown calliper. Again unsure of operational status.

Bit of a cheeky first post, but my LBS suggested this site to me on my last visit.

I have a 93 Kona Cinder Cone, 16" pretty much as original (even still has the A & B Drive tyres in excellent condition). Only changes are the bar ends (added them when purchased as I though t they were cool /doh) and I replaced the grips last year (with Kona grips) as the originals had finally perished.

(Pictures in the next post as I can't post images in my first!)

Ridden maybe a dozen times over the years, never in anger off road. A few minor scuffs all from storage not from use.

I'm a hardened roady and can't justify keeping this one any longer as it just doesn't get ridden and as my son is finally showing an interest in getting on a bike I need to clear some space for his steed, or n+1 for should I get the chance.

The question is though, is my old steel hardtail actually worth anything, and if so how much?

Be good

Jon
