    Any Info on the Motiv brand?

    I just picked up a used Motiv Rockridge Mtn bike at a local Thrift shop over the weekend. It's a non-suspension type. Overall, it appears to be in pretty good shape. I intend to do a complete tune-up on it, clean it up and then re-sell it. I don't know much about this brand of bike. About all I know is you can sometimes find it at Cosco new.

    Does anyone have a history lesson for me on this brand? Like who owns the Motiv brand? About how much did this bike go for new (mid '90's, Shimano components, Cro-Mo frame, steel forks)?

    Any info would be appreciated!

    Most Motivs I've seen are an entry level bike. Probably 33 pounds, around there. Maybe $150-$179.
    I think its disgusting and terrible how people treat Lance Armstrong, especially after winning 7 Tour de France Titles while on drugs!

    I can't even find my bike when I'm on drugs. -Willie N.

    Costco sells them, or at least used to.....
