Hey all, I don't mean to barge in all needy 'n stuff, but I have just recently decided to get back into mountain biking. I am thinking about getting a new bike, but I have a '97 buffed Homegrown. It would seem to be an ESP since I do have the ESP 9.0 Grip Shift system, but it is speced out with the Deore LX crankset and a KORE Aheadset. It was purchased new by me, but I can't find the paperwork.
I thought about upgrading and was told the Homegrown has an almost cult-like following. I can see why. It has been an excellent bike for me and has not once let me down. After my wife and I had triplets in 2002, I stopped biking. Then last September, I took it out for a great ride and got hooked again.
I am thinking of getting a new bike. The guys at the shop said some may want to buy my Homegrown. So I thought to ask here if there is a market for this bike and what I might ask for it. It works flawlessly and has never been damaged. Still has original Mavic 220 wheels and they have never needed to be trued. The bike has been treated well.
Could someone give me a ballpark figure what I might ask? Thanks in advance!
