Nishiki Colorado

I can't show images. So I will describe it best I can.
It is a Nishiki Colorado.
White 20 inch frame with 29 inch balloon Wheels.
GG Evolution Geometry
Thermal AL T6 6061 (Aluminum frame)
Disk Brakes.
The upper bar is a Triangle, not round.

It's a rare beast, I tried to find a place online I could say you could find a image of it and it was a nogo. Need to make 10 posts to put my picture in and I found out Foo doesn't work.

I can't tell much from the poor non-drive photo, other than it's realtively modern. Please submit a photo for the drivetrain, so that we can identify the derailleurs and crankset. That will at least give us a good idea of the level and era.

Thanks, I uploaded an image of the derailer and gears.

Modern budget grade 29'er with a cheap fork

probably $4-500 new , perhaps worth $200 now

This looks like it

With a 7-8 speed Acera rear derailleur, I'd be surprised if it even cost that.

Anything from $4-$600 is in roughly the same ballpark regarding its capabilities --- that wasn't too much of an exaggeration .

As others have said, fix the seat and leg extension issue and it will probably be a nice rig for trails until the front fork needs service
