I happened to love GF mountain bikes. Best vintage hardtails IMHO. I had 1999 Big Sur have 2006 now. Mate had 90s KaiTai model which was super light and outpaces guys on $1000+ bikes on month long tour of southeast Asia and South America. What is most desirable are GFs with the Genesis geometry. And this will be written on the back triangle. I had a Marlin pre genesis and it is it is not the same. I do not like my 2006 Big Sur even with Genesis geometry. 90s models are the best especially Hookekoos which are going for $400-500 in UK. Pre genesis won't generate above $100 in UK if buyers do their homework. Good luck. Owners of vintage GFs should not let go of 'em. They rock!
