    Any Good

    I have a GT Tempest mountain bike with Shimano components. I bought it about 9 years ago and only have probably 30 miles on it. Is it worth keeping or should I sell it and buy new? It doesn't have all the socks and cool peices that the new bikes have but it is very solid and in perfect like new condition. I am really starting to ride now and want to start off right. What are your thoughts? Thanks all!

    Don't sell it!

    Use it for your winter beater!

    Or use it for your main ride--until the time comes when you're sure you want something else. I have an older MTB than yours that I ride quite frequently.
    Dead last finish is better than did not finish and infinitely better than did not start.
