Experience with 1997/1998 Diamondback WCF 4.0
Was wondering if anyone had experience with this Mountain bike at all?
I have a new (month-old) trek hybrid 7200 that I am trying to sell or trade on CL, and someone offered me this bike. I am asking $400 for my bike as it really is brand new, it just doesn't suit me very well because it can't go on the trails around in my area. They said the diamondback was an $1000 bike when it was new, but that was back in 1998 or 1997. I don't have pictures yet and won't really look in person until I see them, but am just wondering if I should entertain this offer. I am not looking for an expensive MTB or even a new one, what can I value this one at in fair to good condition? Is an old mountain bike even worth looking at?
The description he gave me is:
19" Welded Carbon Fiber frame.
24 Speeds grip shift with Shimano Deore derailleurs.
Mavic Aluminum wheels with Shimano Deore hubs and quick releases.
Dia-Compe head set and bar.
WTB Veloci Raptor 2.1 tires.
Shimano Servo Wave Action brakes.
Sugino CSSII crank.
Avenir Aluminum seat post with GEL GLOUD-9 seat.
