    is this bike worth anything?

    i've got this dyno compe from the early 90's hanging around and i'm thinking of selling it as i never ride it..

    i really dont know anything about bmx and it wasn't even my bike to begin with, it sort of just got inherited...

    here's some details on it..

    Year: Early 90's (maybe 93?)
    Tubing: chomoly 4130
    rear pegs
    Headset: odyssey gyro (sst oryg)
    Saddle: mongoose (some wear)
    Seatpost: Straight Dyno long seatpost.
    wellgo pedals
    20" tires (chang shin) (lots of tread left)
    dia compe bulldog brakes front and rear (rubber in good shape)

    is this anything?

    I'll give you $100, but only if you accept Monopoly money.

    i have a kickstand i could put on it... i didnt think anyone would actually want one of those...

    so 80 or 90 maybe is fair?
    i got a jerky email from a guy on craigslist saying it wasn't worth anything at all and i should stop wasting everyone's time. i thought it was rude.

    i relisted it as 100$ obo...
    that's on craigslist...

    maybe i should list on ebay...
    i've never shipped a bike though so that's the 1 thing holding me back on it..

    yeah. Some people don't have jobs or goals, aside from hassling posters on Craigslist. I tried to sell a bass guitar on there once and I think the same guy must have emailed me.

    Evey person that puts a picture of their old school bike always has the seat post above the bars.

    Every passing minute is another chance to turn it all around.

    And they usually have their bars leaning WAY forwards as well. Looks dumb IMHO.

    alot of the tricks that we did required that the bar-end matched the seat nose height so that you could grip both with one hand. As stated, you don't sit much to ride, the seat just added function.

    the bars pushed way forward? I dunno. I never got into that, mine were always in line with the forks/headtube - again, functional for barspins and whatnot.
