    Aftermarket clearcoat for the undercarriage, what more do you want?

    I honestly can't believe someone bid on it, no reserve and it's 1200?
    I don't know why,... it's just MUSS easier to pedal than the other ones.

    "it also comes with a off road set of tires"

    He's been using it as a commuter?

    Sounds like he may be more of a poser (can we still say that?) than a downhiller.

    But for $1200, it's beyond a steal. He should have just removed the post entirely, and he'd probably get $4000 - $5000 for it. I still can't even fathom seeing someone ride this with a post like that. Are they like 7'6" or something? Everybody needs a 205mm travel FS bike with a 64 degree head tube angle to commute on. Downhill both ways...?

    I think the fact they put a stiffer spring to help going up hill really tells it all...

    the orange paint makes the shocks legit. now all he needs is a 36er front wheel to level that thing back out. ok, maybe more like a 44er.

    That's got to be a circle track bike with that slick back tire! You're never gonna find another one of those.

    OK so the bike is not a "WTF"... BUT the reason for not having a front break is pretty damn funny.

    I feel like I'm joining the herd mentality, but I can't resist this gem. "More dangerous than getting confused about which brake you're using? Grabbing a handful of nothing when you need the other 70% of your bikes braking (breaking) ability." On the plus side, if you have less "braking" you'll probably get more "breaking" so it all evens out.
    The most expensive bike in the world is still cheaper than the cheapest open heart surgery.

    This one has been re-posted over and over for probably more than a year. I believe he actually started at $425, now it's actually $275 in the title. I will admit that it was/is a cool bike, but I think he'll have a hard time getting much more than $100.

    Didn't know this forum existed. I've often wanted a place to share some of the "Best of CL" ads. One of my all-time favorites was a bike with a "chrome ollie" frame that, sadly, I didn't score.

    I was just about to post this one and happened to see your post! This is all wrong. Not only is the front brake hilarious, but its a 2007 model year bike, not 2010-2013, and its a size medium, not a large-XLarge. If anyone looks at the pics closely you actually see the "M". Plus this is a $50-80 bike not $200!!!


    Heres whats in the Ad..............
    CONDITION: Has been used but looks to be in excellent condition. Does NOT have front brakes, they were removed because when riding in the mountains it can be dangerous if a rider gets confused on the brakes. If it really bothers you it is only a $13 fix. However, BACK BREAKS ARE INCLUDED.

    - Size: I believe L-XL
    - Year: Looks to be between
    2010-2013

    I love the last pic in this ad: closeup of the left grip, you get a detailed view of every grain of dirt and sand that the I.E. has embedded into this POS.

    Ok, to me this looks fishy. First thought is that it is stolen. Price has been going down for the last couple of months. I don't know Gary Fisher bikes so have no idea what this could be but would think it would be worth more that this. What do you think?

    bent rim, seems about right. 10 year old bike. for that price, if it was in not a horrible condition, I'd buy it. It looks like it's a bike from a small town, so probably not a whole lot of interest.

    has a cool name and looks like 8" rotor up front. what's not to like? it is priced for a buyer to offer $50 and be done. enjoy!

    Looks like he can't figure out that the key has to be turned to open the lock.

    Too funny! The "selfie" influence in action. If he hadn't posted a pic of himself I would be suspicious of the "one key" reference in the ad. He might follow the buyer around and try to steal their bike with the other key.

    He looks like serious seller looking for that serious buyer!

    Or perhaps he "misplaced" the other key and he has that perplexed "how do I get it out of there" look going.

    The more I look at the picture the more I think it is pure genius. His face is perfectly framed in the U-Bolt, saying "trust" the seller, and the resolve in his face coupled with that lone key standing against all thieves says "security". "Fortress".
