Look on your local craigslist or post some clear, daylight, detailed photos here.

Post us some pictures and give us a detailed list of components.

Warning: Do not look at ebay in an attempt to price these. There are a number of them there with prices in the thousands, even ten thousand. Those bikes have all been on the bay for a very long time, and no one has bought them. Possibly because even for the very best of the models, prices top out at about 300$.

Pretty basic model. Worth around 100$ ready to ride (cleaned up) and probably half that as is.

The more valuable Ross Mountain bikes tend to be the earlier chromed models with the Bullhorn bars; the best of those is probably the Mount Whitney; just under that was the Mount Hood. Those top out at around 300$. The model is the Mount Whatever it says on the top tube; I can't make it out.

Ross bikes take a bit of a penalty in the market due to their name; the name actually tend to subtract value.

Well, the photos aren't shot in daylight and aren't sharp enough to read the decals other than hi tech. Needs a lot of love, cool stem. $35 IMHO.
