    Should I get it? I mean, it's a collector's edition and he only wants $300! I bet I could repost it here on mtbr and get like $2000.

    This is to funny. I just opened a can of Dr. Pepper and then scrolled down to this, like 30 seconds later.

    Now for the serious part.
    Why would anyone buy the bike for $2000 from you, when they can go to Craiglist.org and buy it for less?
    Now that you told us all where to find it...

    Because once I buy it from the dude, I will be the sole owner of the only Dr. Pepper bike in the entire world. I can ask whatever I want for it! I think I'll ask for a bazillion samolians.

    The things these people get into their heads!

    I don't think it's worth it. Although, Dr. Pepper is a tasty beverage.

    I saw an Emporio Armani bike in the park on Monday. Didn't take a picture though. Somehow not surprising, the bike was in the Chelsea/West Village area of NYC! Not the most rugged mtb around

    um not that it REALLY matters, but Dr. Pepper is neither Coke nor Pepsi. It is distributed by both, but is owned by Cadbury Schweppes Americas Beverages (CSAB).
    Prior to the initial Cadbury Schweppes investment-turned-buyout, 30% of Dr Pepper/Seven Up products were produced and distributed by Pepsi bottlers, and another 30% by Coca-Cola bottlers. The remaining 40% was produced and distributed by independent bottlers (mainly consisting of pre-Dr Pepper/Seven Up-merger regional bottlers) and the Dr Pepper/Seven Up Bottling Group.

    I found this info on Wiki. What would we do without Al Gores marvelous invention?

    I'm thinking of buying up all the Huffys at Wallyworld, spray painting them maroon, sticking a Dr.Pepper decal on them and selling them on craigslist for $300 each. That's a 300% markup, so I should get rich.

    I want to know who buys these things. I understand that Dr.Pepper gives them away as prizes, but who would actually buy into this "collector's item" business?

    Well I guess It does matter. In the South, it is distributed by Pepsi co. Which makes it a Pepsi product in the south.

    Not the case in the South. Here, it's a Pepsi product. So there.

    Hey, that's actually some interesting info that you dug up on Wikipedia. Thanks for that.

    I remember when Dr. Pepper was its own company. My first ever stock-market trade was to buy three (I believe it was three) call option contracts for Dr. Pepper. I just about doubled my money when I sold. It was a good trade. That was back in high-school. I was a senior. My next few option trades lost money though, and in a few months I was totally wiped out. So I lost everything, but "everything" wasn't really much, and it's not like I was supporting myself at the time. I learned a lot, and those few months of trading options represent the most fun I've ever had while losing money.

    Good memories.

    they gave one of these away at the local Wendy's....

    as a part of the grand opening.
    It was a unique bike, it came with a non-Manitou reverse arch shock, complete with the v-brake installed on the back side of the shock.

    You guys are both wrong. DP is its own company, owned by only themselves, and they contract whoever to do the canning/bottle-ing (bottling just looks wrong??) for them.

    BTW, as much as I'm a huge fan of DP, that's like a $99 walmart bike in a DP pain job.

    I wouldn't pay anything for it.
