Anyone got an opinion on a Giant Yukon

Not sure what year, but it's a 21-speed, dark purple bike. Can pick it up for around $25, but am basically only getting a frame as I don't know how good the components are (have only seen a pic of the bike). Worth it? Is the Yukon a good frame?

I would pick it up for $25. The frame could be good to very good depending on the year and may be steel or aluminum. The components are okay -- it was an upper $300 to low $400 bike -- so everything would be decent mid-grade stuff.

Probably worth $25 if you can salvage some of the components or wheels.
