enter image description hereenter image description hereI know is chromoly frame, and serial number starts with 8D30D334... I will add pictures, if anybody can help would be great...


Edit from a later post:

Yes, I found out that the tires had been replaced and many other parts. And yes the tires were close to 35 or 33. We even had a hard time fitting the front wheel, the wheel seemed to be big for the fork. It came out pretty nice. I will try to post some pictures.

The plastic part was a torn up reflector.

I ended up giving it to wife, and got myself a new Specialized Hardrock 29 MTB, and I am riding every day an average of 10 miles.

  • Looks like you tried to upload more images but they didn't actually upload; I removed the tags. – Batman Dec 31 '16 at 4:19
  • Yes, as a new user you can only upload 2 photos, until you get over 50 (?) reputation. – Criggie Dec 31 '16 at 7:54
  • Pretty generic. I agree with Criggie that it's likely a 90s bike. Hard to say what parts are original. – Daniel R Hicks Dec 31 '16 at 13:16

I have no idea what brand it might have been. And really the brand means little.

From your two photos I see 90s hybrid bike brazed with lugged steel (not welded like I originally said) - you can see the bronze around the bottom bracket.

Dunno if the flat bars are original... the single rear derailleur looks a bit odd mounted on the quill stem. Normally they'd have thumb shifters. And that orange shift cable outer looks decidedly weird looping up at the back chainstay.

The wheels may not be original either. There appears to be a relatively large tyre on both wheels, at a guess 32mm or 35mm ? The mud/colour makes it hard. Schrader valves imply larger tyre widths too. Quick Release skewers also implies no older than the 90s.

There's a bulbous bump in the seatpost - does the bike have seatpost suspension?

There's an odd plastic thing on the seat pole just below where the stays are attached. Not sure of its function. What is it?

The crankset looks relatively modern - I suspect this has been converted to a single chainring at some point.

    ...and that saddle angle hurts me just looking at it.. So there's a fair chance it was set up or ridden by a lady. – Criggie Dec 31 '16 at 8:13

    Brazed, not welded. – Mike Baranczak Dec 31 '16 at 17:44
