    It's unfortunate, but you have to consider the fact that whatever bike you buy may get stolen. Especially at school. Putting 300 clams in a nice shiny bike is risky. You want a $125 rigid MTB with...

    Things like grease, tires, seats, cables, bar tape will age and decay whether a bicycle is ridden or not; even stored inside. How much of that needs attention varies from bike to bike.

    +1.... It looks to be in good shape cosmetically. If it is in good repair, I think it would be worth 150 to 175. If it needs rehab; maybe 50.

    I think it's been wrecked....there's typical rust, but a little much around the steerer tube. Fork looks ok, but maybe it was replaced when it was painted.

    If they've been outside, check them both for stuck stems and seat posts. Unless you've got tools, time and skills; a stuck seat post or stem is a show stopper.
