Schwinn Paramount Mos PDG 50 Shimano Deore XT

ive found this mountain bike for sale. it is $200. it seems like a pretty good deal to me but im not well versed in older moountain bike prices. here are some pics: owner claims low mileage. also, what size does 18.5" compare to for a road bike?

If I were to resell the PDG Series 40 or the Series 50 in my possession, I'd be asking about $200. The 18.5" frame is good for about 5'8" to 6'0", about equal to a 56-58cm IMHO.

I agree with oddjob on the sizing.

I think $200 is a reasonable price, it's a nice frame with nice XT components. But that fork looks like a modern and really cheap (basically junk, super heavy) replacement. So make sure you're ok with it before you buy the bike.

the suspension fork doesnt sit well with me either; I'd make sure you can turn the bars left and right without the fork caps dinging the down tube. These frames weren't really built with "suspension corrected" in mind. I went through that with my series 90. The first pic sure makes it look like the front end is sitting a little high. Does the seller still have the original fork? I will say that the red and black smoke paint on the series 50 has always been one of my favorites.

Thank God, I thought it was only me thinking that bike looks ugly and not right.
