I have a 1994 Specialized Stumpjumper M2 FS (green metallic) XT throughout with the "Futureshocks" that I have owned since 1995, when I bought it new in New York.

I tend to spend most of my available time for cycling on a road bike these days.

Bike is in good condition, no cracks or accidents.

I have all the original parts, but have replaced original twist shift with Sram, as the rubbers perished,
New chain and sprocket 50 miles ago and new tyres last weekend.

Is it worth anything or just leave it in the garage?

Despite NY purchase, bike is here in Kent/Sth London.

This is my first post, so I do hope I do not get a page of offers of a Twix and spare valve caps!!??

Cheers.

Tks mods for switching to this forum....schoolboy error on my behalf!

Edited to add a photo...

Wife says no to potential garage art.

Yeti Arc frame with severely cracked head tube. There is a small dent in the top tube. Otherwise in perfect working order :facepalm: . (I figure art or head tube repair). Anyway, I'm interested in parting with it.

I'd say £150 is ballpark.

Almost impossible to value as is, worth far more split. Frame, forks, wheels most valuable bits obviously, look up previous sales of them on here.

Tks lrh for the response.

I had no idea of it's value, but for £150 it is certainly worth keeping, even if it's for the memories of riding the Grundig world series courses and down proper mountains stateside.

Cheers.

I'd give you £30 for the 121 rims if they are 32 hole...?

Hubs aren't worth much...

So I have my 96 Karakoram sat around for along time now and really want to build a hardtail with some other bits I have...so to fund it probably going to break the Karakoram, it has covered a few miles since new and has original tyres the lot...

Anyone help value the pieces or interest in them let me know:

96 LX groupset with STX canti brakes with original pads (includes chain set, derailleurs, rear sprockets, chain, stx canti's and lx levers/shifter combo units)

Paralax Hub with Mavic 238 Rims

Velociraptor front and rear tyres with very little wear

Kore Stem

GT Frame as well

I can send pictures if people are interested...

I've got a set of araya/shimano wheels from my old early 90’s alpinestar. Now they probably aren’t worth much, but I would like to know what would be a fair price to ask for the tyres? A 26x1.95 specialised ground control extreme and a 26x1.95 onza porc. Both are used, but in pretty good condition and very rideable.
