Help needed

Sorry I do not know about your bike but I looks like a frame I am trying to ID. Do you have any more pics? Is the rear derailleur hanger a removable Everest (brand name) hanger?

Sure, it would make a very solid city bike. If I were buying it for myself to ride I would have no issue paying 75 for it.

Alivio and STX drivetrain will be no frills but pretty bombproof. Chances are the fork might be suspect by now though.

Just make sure front shock is not shot. Typically cheap forks do not age well. Thats one advantage of a rigid fork.

If "you" means the original poster, that person hasn't posted on Bikeforums since 2012 and thus may not respond.
