    Want to go the way of a hardtail, recommendations on value of GT LTS-3

    Need a little advice on the value of my 97 GT LTS-3.

    I picked it up from a friend for an awesome price, but after riding it for awhile I realized I have no need for full suspension, the trails I ride here just do not require it. I posted it on craigslist as a trade but haven't had much luck as of yet. I was wondering if you guys could help estimate a value with everything it has, so I can offer it up for cash, or at least know what would be a fair trade value. For those that read the MTBR.com forums in the GT section I apologize for the second posting of this on here.

    Hope no one minds the large pics, I wanted to get as much detail as I could in there.

    Any and all advice would be most welcome. Thanks in advance!

    Here is a list of everything it has:

    - I believe the frame is either a Medium or a Large. I have a 29" inseam and its a little snug on me.
    - Mavic Wheels? - Sticker on frame says Mavic equipped but there are no markings on the rims themself.
    - Shimano STX RC 8S Hubs
    - WTB Velociraptor tires
    - Rear Derailleur: Shimano Deore LX
    - Front Derailleur: Shimano STX
    - Brakes: Shimano Deore LX V-brakes with Deore levers
    - Shimano Rapid Fire shifters - STX I believe - no markings
    - Thomson Stem
    - WTB Momentum Headset w/GreaseGuard
    - Kore Litebar Handlebars
    - RockShox SID suspension fork
    - BelAir SDG seat
    - Clipless pedals - unknown manufacturer
    - ICON Bar ends
    - YETI Grips

    Here are a few pics:

    200-300 bucks. older/dated frame, now harder to get parts for. older noodly fork. the only standout part is the thomson stem.

    toss a cheapy stem on there, and keep the thomson to throw on a future ride.
    I believe the clouds in my coffee more than the weatherman on t.v.

    They look like a ton of various aftermarket brand SPD clones out there. Most made by VP or Wellgo.
