If you go to the Intro forum and say hello to nine of your new friends in their posts, you can post pix, and we can see what you have.

Value - not much on the used market to go by. If the frame is in good shape, 50% of new is a good starting point.
Not so sure. Yes, there is a website with some info, but I also found some messages, including some here on Bike Forums which indicate they closed shop. The owner of the bike can try to message them. Maybe they will respond.

In any event, I find it interesting how much they talk about corrosion on their website as though it is a big issue with new bikes. Even with old bikes, a little care goes a long way and I have yet to buy a vintage bike that had anything other than minor surface rust. I'm sure there are horror stories out there, and maybe I've just had good luck.
