I am going to start my new hobby of mountain biking but need a bike to start. I have no money at all to spend so I have been trying to barter. I have found someone willing to trade me my nintendo 3ds and playstation vita for a 1998 Rockey Mountain Vertex T.O. http://www.bikepedia.com/quickbike/B...T.O.&Type=bike
The question is this a good starter bike even though its old. Said its been stored and hasnt rode due to knee injuries. Would a bike this old be worth what I am trading for?
Thanks for all input.
