    Sofa King spam...

    Ok guys and gals, she's got to go. I bought a Mustang project car over last weekend so money is getting tight around my place. I am down to taking $1350 shipped for it. That is what the frame cost, this bike is decked out in Chris King and has a SID Team with remote! I must be getting desperate... http://marketplace.consumerreview.co...uery=retrieval

    Idea! here's a marketing tip

    though it may be too late. increase your rock-bottom price by the cost of a new powdercoat, and in the ad, indicate that you'll have it pc'ed the buyer's choice...?

    it's a sweet bike to be sure; maybe that would convince someone who was turned off by the paintjob...

    for the price I have it listed at they can afford to have it powder coated their selves if they dont like the paint. Its not that people dont like the paint (could be wrong), in fact from what I have seen its probably about 50/50, but there are no fence riders, they either love it or hate it. I just think nobody wants to pay big bucks for a single speed when they can build one out of any old bike. You just about have to be a serious racer to want it and to be willing to fork out that kind of money. I've had many offers but everybody wants to trade something for it, but I am needing cash. Someone with cash will want it eventually, if not I may end up parting it out because it is certainly decked out with the best of the best and all still in very very good shape.

    i think it's more that if people are inclined to spend that much for an SS, they are going to buy exactly what they want.

    i hope you get a decent price for it. good luck.

    Great lookin' bike! Too bad you're such a runty little fella, because if the frame had been adult-sized, I'd have been real interested. One size too small.

    Thanks man, I do agree to what you just said, just hoping somebody will see this and its exactly what they want.. It would be a sin to paint over the paint job on that bike, even if its a controversial color and design that some like and some dont, still people who dont like the color scheme still admit its one sweet paint job, it looks about 2" deep and has a pearl essence in it, the guy who painted it is very talented. He just painted my 29" Sofa King and its solid black with blue and silver logo's and its the same quality.

    6'5". I ate my vegetables when told to. See what you get for all the junk food? It stunted your growth. Nice taste in bikes, for a little guy, though!

    Actually, the frame is built for a giant. Far too big for me. It's all relative

    Hey, if I had that type of money lying around I would buy it in a heartbeat. And I love the paint, even if I'm a Canadian, I could always paint the back half with maple leaves

    I already have an ss that is too big, and it's the smallest frame that Surly makes... Still a kick in the pants to ride, though.

    Exactly. If I'm gonna spend that much for a SS I'm going fully custom. Actually if I had the money to spare I probably would've already ordered up a Piss Off, especially after having seen that Piss Off porn a month or so ago.

    I'm *still* jealous .

    They sell all those yet?

    Oh well, my Surly's serving me well. 4 hours of mostly singletrack today on the newly squish-a-riffic front end.

    That is a really nice bike though, and a killer deal for someone with the cash to spare. I wouldn't worry too much, someone will probably snatch it up soon...

    Gotta seriously question the idea of selling a *bike* in favor of a car though. *Priorities* man!
