No, its honest. The reason you had to bump your post is that no one is interested in trading for a bike that is low end and very common.

I'll be the first to admit it was flat out luck that never would have happened without the help of others.
But it didn't start out nice...it was a mess.
Took over a year to track down parts, refresh, rebuild.


I don't know...maybe you can get someone to trade. Even better if you find a way to trade up. Keep doing that over and over and you eventually get to where you want.
Find a donor bike with good parts. Maybe find a basket case with a killer frame in your size. Different process for everyone I suppose.

I think you've provided the response to your own point there rumpfy. It's an enticing swap for someone with something on a similar level, or who would see this as a trade up or a chance for a change and who has something of interest to Robbo - and not necessarily a complete bike.

There are probably more of us at the low to mid-range end of the scale than the higher end - there's plenty below a Kara. And plenty of posts get bumped.

Mid 90s cromo mtb from a 'proper' brand? Pretty much the definition of retrobike for a lot of us.

That's a nice bike you've got yourself Robbo and i'd be interested in a swap but i wouldn't insult you with my cheapo Pro Tec and my bike needs a fair bit of work doing to it as well but some one will come along and make you a decent offer soon mate ...
