The Facebook ad was for a lot of 5 mountain bikes for parts or repair. There was only one picture in the ad and it was hard to tell if there was a diamond in that rough. I thought there was potential with the orange one but it was hard to tell in that picture. I asked for a picture of that one and got a nice pic of the bike. Hmmm, I thought, there might be something here. That looks like it might be DX. I asked for a closeup of the rear derailleur and that got me excited. It had Deore DX which is a really nice vintage groupset so it had to be a decent bike. I collected them all and kept the Tech. The others were rust buckets that wouldn't be worth saving so I took a few parts off them and hauled them to the scrap metal yard.
