I have a Ross compact bicycle that has to be around 15 to 20 years old. It has a tempered steel frame.
I'm trying to decide what to do with it -- would it be best to clean it up, and get new parts, etc (I was given a quote of $150) or to sell it, or to trash it. Does anyone have any advice? How do I determine if the bike is worth anything? Thanks!!
