    I'm in the Toronro GTA area, if that help determine how much a bike like this is worth.

    I have that saddle... to really sell it maybe $150. I see stuff like that in my local ads go all the time for 60-80$. Maybe to someone nostalgic for that model/brand a bit more. It's funny because I was obsessed with MTB's in the '90s but never heard of a Miyata MTB. The bikes with followings seem to be Trek, Specialized, Pro flex and the like.


    250$? I will be shocked if he gets that for that pile of poo. I'd pay maybe $60 max for that. The lx parts sell for like 20$ max, last brakes I saw went for 7$! The baby boomers were evidently not mountain bikers.

    ... I see it has been for sale at least since Nov. 2010 so I guess I am right.

    Not sure but I guess all the brands made mountain bikes or ATB.

    I was thinking turning it into a commuter, something like this, but times are tough and I have too many bikes.
    Someone else's pickture:
