    Got a free bike - keep or not?

    So I got this bike a while back, and its been in storage since then. I don't remember how we got it, but it was for free. It's a Fuji M600 21-speed. No suspension whatsoever, completely stock. I am looking to get back into riding a bike, so I figure this could do, but I have some questions:

    1)Keep or sell?
    2)Where can I get a more comfortable seat?
    3)How much could I get for it if I sell it?

    I don't know much about bikes.. Here are the pics..

    Looks like a nice bike, so far unable to find anything from fuji for that model number.

    You can buy a nice replacement saddle at any LBS.

    Price unknown still looking for info from Fuji.

    Thanks! Is that decent to ride 10 miles a day on? I plan to use it for exercise more than actual mountain biking.

    You could give it to me. I'd be more than thrilled to beat it up to the point of destruction for you.

    Hell, any bike is good enuf to use for exercising. Yes I'd keep it, but it's kinda heavy for a hardtail. It's a solid bike, and that's about all....

    Not to be a smartass, but if Mtn.Biking "isn't" exercise, then what exactly is it? You lost me with that one. All these yrs. I've been riding for all the wrong reasons?

    Just my cynical nature, but that isn't a hard tail, it's a rigid.

    Sorry but I'm really annoying to other people when it comes to things like that.
