    How much is it worth and what is the model of the bike in the picture.

    Hi, I got this bike as a payment for a job I just did. And I would like to sell at a fair price, can you please help me figuring out the price?
    It is a 21" fuji, the stickers say altair 1, speed max, sport series and ATB design.
    Thanks.DSC05057.jpg

    Looks like a pretty decent bike, but I'm not familiar with that model and can't tell much from the photo. If you can post some detail shots of the drive side components and the tubing stickers that would help to determine what level of bike it is.

    I'm in the same boat as you and was wondering if anyone knew what bike's serial number would start with GJA. If anyone can help that would be much appreciated.

    Also depends where you live. In my area, I could get $140-$160 if it worked perfectly and the tires were good. Some folks report that old hardtail bikes don't move. Check Craigslist.

    It'll take some patience to get more than $150 out of that. Was probably around a $500 bike new, 5 or more years ago.

    It's a lot better than anything you could buy new for twice the money, but that's a tough one to explain to buyers sometimes.

    Then, I have a second bike I want to know how much is worth. Hopefully, I sell these and with the proceeds, restore a 1986 Peugeot triathlon and get some cycling computer and another toys.
    It is a Novara Buzz, I believe 2009.

    But old hard tails make the best utility bikes. Though this one loses points for having a front suspension in my book.

    yeah, I don't like the front suspension, either. Also, the fuji is too big for me, and the novara too small. It is a small for a 5'3"-5'6" tall person.

    Looks very much like my 2003 Big Buzz, which cost $800 new. Have no idea what that might go for used.
