Will be selling two bikes, so I am asking for prices. Do not want to put too high and then wait for eternity, however I had to buy it, so will not give them for free...comments appreciated :-)

File comment: Marin muirwoods 21spd cro mo, shows its age, when I got it I changed bearing cones+balls, checked the frame (for rust) and seemed ok, brake levers and shifters were changed before (however to v brake, but it works ok only slightly less power). Smallest cog worn out (seems previous owner was using only this gear). Was thinking about 45eur...

File comment: Cannondale M400, 24spd, however was sold as new with suspension fork RS Indy C (elastomer in good condition). All original except crank upgraded to stx (from alivio) and rear mech downgraded to stx (from stx rc). Those two parts I needed and they were not worn out. Bike is hardly ridden, has no dents (except where brake lever hits top tube - minor scratch, and approx 1cm2 colour chipped off by it self...). Rims very good - as new, bearings checked and greased (cones not dented). Was thinking about 160eur, since its good looks (even for these days). New tubes, tyres are ok. Even got waranty paper for frame (lifetime), no bill though.

price for the marin is about right but the dale needs a matching headshok to be worth 160 - as it stands 100 max

Thanks fotorat.
It seems that it was sold like this as new...on warranty list is right serial number, however they sold it as F400 (so with Rock Shox fork). It really is a bit strange... Maybe they changed the fork before first sale.
However I think that aluminium bike that was used with suspenion fork should be worth a bit more due to lowered stress in that area?

Price for Marin seems ok, they don’t go for much.
It’s a 1993 Muirwoods and has some original parts such as stem, forks and by the looks of it tyres - but has a non original seat, seat QR and Cranks

Where are you based? I might be interested in a few bits and bobs if you split it?

Slovenia...will let you know if I split. However parts are nothing special...have that blue handlebar Marin lite (that was originaly on the bike) somewhere. However it had bar-ends mounted and it seems they were not tightened, so the the handlebar ends (10mm) are in a pretty bad shape...strange...

Headshock? with a normal headtube. P bone for this set-up.
