    Schwinn Paramount Series 50 PDG Deore DX 7speed 92

    I am curious as to how much this bike might be worth or if it is worth the money to invest in fixing up. It has minor problems like a new bike chain and brake pad. It is a mountain bike from 91 or 92.

    In pristine condition I don't see this bike being worth more than $250. Old MTBs get no respect. If it's trashed, as low as $50.
    Why "derailer" is the correct way to spell the gear-change mechanism: sheldonbrown.com/derailer.html

    +1 Worth fixing up depends on a couple of factors: its current condition, and who is going to do the work. Vintage MTBs don't bring much money right now, but they make great rides.
