    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.
    Wanted: XL Steel single speed 29er frame. please PM with info.

    pass it on to 65Bug, he might reconsider his ancient razorback build.

    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.

    ...wonder how many times that seat post hit that shock

    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.
