MTB valuation: 2004 Giant Rainier
DISCLAIMER: This is not an attempt to sell my bike on BF, and I've asked permission from a Mod to post this.
This bike has taken me all over tarnation, trails, roads, long distance, harsh weather, you name it. I maintain my bikes impeccably, and have modified it quite a bit since purchase in June 2004. Here are her vitals:
Avid CPS Disc brakes, Avid BL 1 levers
Mavic X139 wheels
Shimano Deore components (LX rear derailleur)
That's about what's stock that's left.
Cranks - now Nashbar Trekking 48-38-28
Bottom Bracket - with the crank replacement, I had to replace the BB - Nashbar ISIS 68mm/113mm
Cassette - SRAM PG970, but still have the old cassette
Saddle - Yellow Selle Italia
Handlebars - Scott AT2 Bullhorn
Fork - The Judy that came with it was a piece, so I replaced it with a Surly 1X1 rigid.
Pedals - Crank Bros. Candy C - yellow
Tires - kept the stock tires, but mounted (and have 2 sets) of Forte Vera-Trac
Just looking for a ballpark so I can get this rig on the market. She cost me $720 in 2004.
Thanks, ladies and germs.
