Giant Reign for $200?



I don't know much about mountain bikes but I saw this for $200 at a local pawn shop. Good deal? I'm 6' tall and I'm not sure if it will fit me

Yes, buy it. Even if it doesn't fit, you can use the parts on another frame and probably still come out ahead. Or you can just send the entire thing to me.

I'd jump on that for $400. Run, don't walk.

The parts are easily worth the money, assuming you have something you can do with those parts.

7 years ago you'd have paid about $3300 for that bike brand new.

I wonder how much the thief got when they sold it to the pawn shop.

I'd wager it was less than $200

I would definitely jump on it. I would also see if I could find the person who had it ripped off. If no find, then happy birthday.
