    It's really cool but unfortunately old MTBs just aren't worth much. I think your prices are realistic. Don't be surprised to settle for more like $120-$130 though. If you had a Stumpjumper obviously you'd be looking at more..
    Why "derailer" is the correct way to spell the gear-change mechanism: sheldonbrown.com/derailer.html

    I figured as much... I do really like this bike... If the frame fit me I would keep it and make it into a winter commuter.

    To give you an idea, I sold my wife's Specialized Rockhopper frameset (18") this summer for $50, after stripping the entire Deore LX group from it including the Deore LX/Specialized wheelset, all of which got transferred to another bike. Had I sold the complete bike, I probably could not have gotten $200 for it, but parted out I could have netted about $250-300.
