    Definitly not a year 2000 model... But he also wrote: "rides like your on a cloud", I think this guy is on drugs, probably why the bike is for sale in the first place.

    I guess it wasn't selling so he did the only logical thing - increase the price. Ad now says $2000!

    If I were rich I'd buy it only to return it since it's not as advertised...
    Carbon fiber, top of the line in 2000, I bet he's a crack head or something...

    ...and he fixed the year. It now says "top of the line Cannondale Mountain bike in 1992".

    Now it's older, so it's worth more right?

    Can someone please call this clown? I would love to hear what he's got to say. In the title it says 2000 but in the description he says 1500 or best offer.

    Some people actually pay good money for classic bikes! Like people who collect classic cars and never drive them. Yes the world is full of crazies

    it takes all sorts to make a world! there's nothing wrong with collecting stuff, especially if you have the £££. luciano pavarotti had a garage full of ferrari's, the fat man couldn't fit in a single one.

    I think an unridden bike is a sad thing. Like a musical instrument that is never played, never producing a sound...

    I agree, a bike is not a show piece. If it doesnt have some dirt on it, it's new, or just thoroughly cleaned. The first only happens once, the latter only once in a great while.
