x-mart means crap. There's no actual "X-Mart" store. It means something from k-mart or Wal Mart or Target... cheap bike.

Worth? $50 or maybe more to someone who thinks it's worh $50, maybe. The suspension stem looks like a cheap avenir model, nothing special. Sorry.

I will give 10 bucks for it and make more money by selling it to the scrap yard. They really love those heavy metal bikes.

LOLZ haha na im from uk. i bought this when i was around 16. all that garbage is in my shed and those 4 rims are 16" tsw apex rims and have been sold few months ago. lovely profit. and the treadmill is rubbish manual crap. lolz. anyway, im sure someone aged 16 would purchase it on ebay haha. and yes i have been jumping off things with this bike i.e. from pavements to roads and vice versa haha. however im interested in a road bike now so stuff the mountain bikes.
