$10,000.00 (10K) should be a good starting price. I heard this is a normal purchasing price

Yes, I am joking, but people in this forum say this is a normal purchasing price.

A person. One.
C'mon, this is a question from a brand new member.

To the OP: Prices and values will vary wildly based on condition and desirability. If you could link to the ad or post some pictures you'd get a more informed response.

So, is that a vintage MTB with 26" wheels, somewhat like this one:


or this one?




Probably 1990's or early 2000's MTB, 26" wheels. They often take a bearing in value. I'm seeing asking prices in the range of $300 to $550. But, those prices may well be a bit on the high end.

As mentioned above, there are a lot of details about the exact construction of the bike. So, we'd have to know about YOUR bike. Shocks? Anything that has been changed or updated?

Maybe $200 if it is something that you really want???

The Twin Track series was a line of ATBs introduced in 2002, after Procycle acquired the brand. The T4500 was 3rd from the bottom of the line and produced from 2002-2005. Specs varied depending on the exact year but it was aluminum frame with various front suspension forks. The drivetrain was typically a Shimano Alvio/Acera mix. MSRP was $600-$650 CDN. The value will vary considerably depending on condition and location. The biggest condition concern is generally the functionality of the suspension fork. Hot markets like the GTA can fetch prices that are twice as much as places like Dog River.
