I have just aquired a Giant Cadex ALM1, 99.9% original. Only tyres (slicks), brake pads and grips are non standard. It has also had the addition of bar ends. Over all it's in grat condition, could do with new cones and bearings and also new cabling, other than that it's great. Just wondering if someone here may know its worth.

Best add the spec!!!
Deore LX bits are front and rear mechs, cantis, shifters and levers
Exage bits are hubs and crank.
It is a bonded aluminium frame, so no visible welds, I must say I'm a bit dubious about that though!!

Cheers fella. It may well come up for sale at some point. I never keep my old bikes long ;-)
That said it rides nicely, even with its iffy bits. I'm just glad it's all easy to sort. I didn't pay too much for it so I'm happy to spend it where it's needed. I'd like to change the saddle, seat post and crank but I think it will devalue it. It's a tough one!
