Have 4.5 bikes. Need to build a nice one for myself and sell the rest. Your opinion?
I don't mountain bike much but am looking to start. I collected several bikes from Garage Sales and would appreciate your opinion on how you would handle the situation. Here is what I have:
1)complete Specialized Rockhopper (good condition, 24 gear, manitou front shock, paid $90)
2)complete Gary Fisher bike (good condition, 27 gear, Rock Shox Pilot, paid $90)
3)complete proflex 855 (Ok condition, Rock Shox Indy, Rear Elastimer shock dried out, paid $25)
4)complete Cannondale (bad paint condition, 24 gear, got free from neighbor)
5)Rocky Mountain Frame (pictures here)
I guess my goal is to end up with a good bike (doesn't have to be super fancy as I am still a beginner) while making the most I can selling the rest. I don't have much disposable income right now to buy parts which I don't already have. It would be nice if I can end up with the Rocky Mountain Frame. What would you do? I would assume the easiest thing to do would be to choose one of the bikes and take all the parts off and assemble them back onto the Rocky Mountain Frame, then sell the rest of the bikes as they are and sell the frame of the bike we stripped.
Here are the pics of the whole bike and you can click here
