    1997 Trek 830 Appraisal

    Hi folks, I tried this in the MTB forum and only received one response that was helpful. I have a Trek 830 with a 21" frame. Color is Gloss Inkwell, paint and decals are in good shape for its age. Frame is chro-moly, no dents, and is made in USA. I've replaced the original brakes with Tektro cantilevers, refreshed the original Dia Compe levers, replaced the original Grip Shifters with Shimano Revo, new grips, new pedals, and new saddle. All cables are new and housing replaced where needed. The bike has been tuned up. Rims are Araya, not sure if original but they're in good condition. I'm contemplating selling it to make room for my new road bike, but I don't know what a fair price is. I paid $25 for the complete bike before fixing it up, and the guy at the LBS said he could get around $150 retail. Just wanted to see if this price was in the ballpark.

    With that many new parts on it, $135 to $150 is about right.
