I've only ridden on-road for the last 15 years, and am now itching to have another go off-road. Can anyone tell me what my old kit is worth before I decide whether to flog it all and start from scratch, or stick with what I've got plus a few tweaks and new bits.
Here's the list, apologies for length....
Gary Fisher 1998 HooKooEKoo frame in True Temper tubing and a lovely sapphire blue metallic colour. This was a warranty replacement from Trek for my broken Trek frame. I built it up and gave it the briefest test ride on-road only. Almost mint, just a few small paint chips and scratches from house moves and storage, never ridden off-road, still glossy and gleaming.
X-Lite titanium handlebars with gold anodised end plugs, approximately year 1995
Shimano RD-M900 XTR rear mech, very good condition, almost no wear/play, some small scratches and rubs where it says Shimano XTR, approximately year 1994
Shimano FD-M900 XTR front mech, almost unused condition, bottom-pull but with some minor marking in the cable clamp area where I removed a bit of metal to install an outer cable stop for top-pull use (although would still work fine for bottom-pull) approximately year 1994
Hope Ti-Glide rear hub with ACI double butted spokes and Campag Stheno rim (no disk mounts), hub in excellent condition with no major dinks or scratches, approximately year 1994
Matching Hope Ti front hub with ACI double butted spokes and Campag Stheno rim (no disk mounts), hub in good visual condition but needs new bearings, approximately year 1994
USE seatpost with two different shims, approximately year 1995
Flite Titanium saddle, good condition, some wear but no rips/tears, the original, not a reproduction, approximately year 1995
Onza HO pedals with stainless spindles, still spin nicely, original black finish completely removed, a bit bashed and worn but still usable
Two sets of completely unused cleats and all mounting hardware for Onza HO pedals, one set of cleats never even opened, still have original (although ripped) packaging for second set, approximately year 1995
Pair of Shimano Deore XT ST-M095 combined rapidfire+ shifters and brake levers, both shifters are fully working, complete, and in reasonable condition for age, brake levers have been polished and so are not in original state, approximately year 1993
Shimano STXRC V-brakes, complete set, almost unused (short on-road test ride) approximately year 2000
