If memory serves me correctly (and don't assume it does ), I would guess it's a late-ish '90s model. It's probably not worth more than a couple hundred. Again, I could be way off. I don't I would personally pay more than a $100, but that's just me.

The platform pedals and single ring say beat to crap to me. Someone's freeriding on a bike that probably shouldn't be ridden like that.

The old bighit utilized the old frame style exactly like that frame, I have no idea what model that bike is, but you could be completely wrong.

And the value.....i'd say around 300, probably not much more.

$150 maybe....

Save your $$$ for a newer bike Man!

Appears to be a re-painted Specialized FSR. Looks like its been to Hell & back.... Although it is clean.

$150 no way. IN Boston a bike like a FSR would go for about $300 used. It has disc brakes and Maxxis tires. Common..$150 can buy a Goose thats about it.

I don't live in Boston, nor will I ever....

Practically every component on that bike is probably close to being worn-out, and you're gonna sink more than $100 into an old, used frame? C'mon yourself.... I personally wouldn't give $25 for that bike. I was being generous IMO with the $150 offer....

BTW, the rear tire appears to have slid more than it's rolled....

It has one disc brake, and a V-brake. Killer B is right - that tire has been skidded the hell out of. I wouldnt pay 300 for that.
