    "Budget" Bicycle Center strikes again. The bike in the ebay ad is worth about the cost of shipping if it were tuned up and ready to ride, which it is certainly not.

    But $30 is a good price on just about any good quality bike in working condition. Enjoy it, should be a good rider.
    Why "derailer" is the correct way to spell the gear-change mechanism: sheldonbrown.com/derailer.html

    Oh sorry. Shipping price as I saw it was about $120, which is what you could probably get for it on craigslist assuming everything is in good working shape, and the bike itself looks nice.

    That's not an auction, that's unbelievable dreamland. Then every once in a while, they hook a fish, er, get a bid. Just a typical MTB from that era,+/- $100 to $125 fully refurbished and ready to go.

    Hello Yus4eel, Welcome to the forums. Do you have any pics of your bike? If it is atleast rideable for $30 you may have a gotten a decent deal on old steel MTB which with a bit of elbow grease can make a great townie.
