check the mtbr forums if you want to know for sure, but from the components i'd say its average for the giant line. if you clean it up and get it looking pretty you could probably get 100 for it. it's a nice bike, but unless it's some rare dealio I'm not aware of, there's not a buttload of demand for bikes of that vintage, yet.

Definitely from 1988 but I'm not sure of the model, possibly a Sedona. Exage Mountain was typically found on bicycles in the $400-$500 range.

I have no wish to sell this bike. Thats another section of Bike Forum. I upon the first ride realized quality. I started riding about 6 yaers ago after a serious illness. I live in Beautiful Sacramento, California. We have over 32 miles of bicycle trails which was built in 1896 by "The Capital City Wheelman" and was completed in 1985. My Doctor says riding a bicycle has done wonders, I'm be 61 in 7 months.

'Senior member' doesn't mean 'senior citizen' on internet forums. It means he's been here a long time (relatively speaking) and has a high post count, although he could be a senior citizen too. Now you and I are 'senior citizens', sonny. We've been 'here' (on Earth) a really long time (me a few more years than you). If you like that bike and it feels 'right' to you, just love it. It probably needs some TLC if it hasn't been overhauled since 1988. Even if it wasn't ridden much, grease and oil dry up/turn to gummy varnish. As it happens, I'm putting a 1989 Bridgestone MTB back on the road right now myself. $400-$500 was good money in '88 and that is a nice bike worthy of some attention. You will find tons of help on the 'Mechanics' forum.
