    I don't agree. Have you seen the stamped steel ones from that era?

    Let me google that and get right back to you

    Ok, I don't know if there were cheaper ones. I would expect them to be better. Anyhow I am glad to have one and that someone made them. Maybe there are reasons why he did not write "big company name" copy.

    Then the same guy has another set of Deore thumbies, NOS, but this time in a ziplock bag, and the price goes up for some reason.
    $199 Thumbies

    And most of the rest of his 7 pages of auctions are similarly priced. Anyone interested in a $6000 Fat Chance Yo Eddy?

    That's a little extreme. Somebody is trying to cash in during hard times.$ 300 for an xtr rear der. that's not that old? NOBODY will by that thing.

    The flag is never to touch to ground. Let alone used as a mat for a mass produced bike made in Taiwan for a photo op.

    This guy has been trying to sell this Parkpre for the better part of 2 years...

    http://losangeles.craigslist.org/wst...502460413.html

    and it gets listed on a pretty regular basis
    and it's not like he's trying to sell something else
    it's sad in a way and funny at the same time.

    This has a great many problems:

    1) 200mm fork on a XC hardtail built around a 100mm fork (if that fork really is that long)?
    2) Freeride on a Raleigh M600?
    3) $600 for a messed up bike originally from 2002 with MSRP of $879? (BikePedia - 2002 Raleigh M600 Complete Bicycle)

    Raleigh M600 Freeride Bomb proof Trail Rig.

    Raleigh M600. Sun single track wheelset with XT hubs - LX derailleurs - Truvativ stylo gxp cranks - bontrager crowbars - 200mm or travel courtousy of rock shox. and tons more ..

    bike is Sturdy as F*#k! Open to all types of trades

    Novelty? Yes!
    Worth this much? No!

    Great Tandem Bike

    "Ever ride a tandem and get tired of looking at the person in front of you's butt? Or maybe you ride in the front and get tired of the person behind you gawking at your buns. Well, this here tandem bike puts you side-by-side with the one you love/hate. And since the laws of the road and greenway say ride no more than 2 abreast, this bike is 100% legal! I will let this puppy go for a measly $5,000."

    Yeah, best to go with the OBO on that. Still an very cool bike. Dang that brings back memories. I think Robin McKeever raced one of those, but I could be wrong. He was nearly always way too far in front of me for me to tell.

    The original ad was gone by the time I came across it through a Google search, so who knows.

    $1750, though still relatively cheap for a rare tandem, seems much more plausible. Then again, it was listed as a "two seater" . . .

    Whatever it is, it's awesome! Note that it's in "exelentes Meccan conditions". Does that mean it's ready for a pilgrimage?
