    i would say the stump jumper is good at that price, esp. if everything is in working condition. Go get it.

    As for your haro... i doubt you'll get much. I haven't sold too many bikes in my lifetime, but I've heard that you usually sell for less than 50% of purchase price, esp. if it's old. If i'm wrong, I hope another BF member sets me straight .

    You can't go wrong for $250 only. Unless it is a totally ragged-out thing that needs a new rear shock and a fork. If both are working decent, I'd grab it if I were you.
    Good Luck.

    Sunshine!! We will sell your Haro F4 for whatever we can get out of it. Eventually, we will get a Mt. bike for you, the bike will properly fit you. I am enjoying riding with you, please keep it up.

    Keep your old bike. Its not worth selling. You can lend it to friends so they can come on a ride with you. Its a lot better than selling it for how much you could sell it for.
