    That's the one. Minty Ibis with dirt drops and a Koski fork. Really nice build and amazing condition (once the slicks are replaced).

    One of these brakes is not like the other. Properly 'outted' it may have brought a bit more at auction.

    At first glance I thought it was a V-Brake. It took a while to hit me even though I've been watching for one (MRC Powerlink U-Brake - Russ Crystal/Crystal Design manufactured).

    Custom Built One of a Kind MTB!!!

    I've seen this Trek bike come up on Fleabay many times in the past couple months. Each time, the seller is asking $1999 starting bid. Amazing.

    I have seen many boxes and old packaging for sale for the old school BMX stuff....I've wondered if anybody actually purchases the stuff.....I do happen to have a NOS TX500 fork at home...I wonder if it needs old, used packaging?

    In all reality, there have been many bikes that were cloned and and raced. Kona took some Turners and renamed them and the industry accepted them, so at least this guy is clearly stating that it's a clone. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

    2004 Limited Edition Trek Madone Road Bike #159 / 500 Lance Armstrong

    2004 Limited Edition Trek Madone Road Bike #159 / 500 Lance Armstrong - $3000 (Arden, NC)

    This bike is a limited production bike, #159 / 500 Lance Armstrong Tour de France win number five. It was a special Madone model, and was new-for-2004 aerodynamically enhanced version of OCLV frame that was first seen at the 2003 Tour de France. It has only a few rides, thus limited milage and is in pristine condition. The bike was bought as a collectable investment and it is now time to release and let someone enjoy the ride...



    Uhhhhhm, I think the time to sell it would have been last year before he was busted. Not that I have any ill feelings towards the guy but let's face it, nobody is really looking for Lance Armstrong collectibles right now. lol
    Just stick it in granny and start grinding.

    Aside from hitting your foot on the tire, how would that handle? I imagine the reason they are selling it is because they don't enjoy riding it.

    It would track really well in a straight line as there would be a huge amount of trail. It may not do so well in turns.
    Each bicycle owned exponentially increases the probability that none is working correctly.

    If it doesn't sell for 275 TWICE; then of course list it for 749. And if that doesn't sell? Then list it for $1249.00!

    Didn't really know much about this thread until now. Wished I had payed attention earlier, because another forum member here did a wild number on us on the 'Bay, and the end result was even though I had won the auction the member had already either sold the frame or no longer had it in their possession by the closing date of the auction.

    End result was that I got screwed, and then found the same poster here on MTBR. Go figure.

    I've actually done that but I cancel the auction before it ends and it's only when there are no bidders.

    And I didn't mean for my post to be ragging on a particular member here. I don't even think he's a member here. It's more a WTF insane money type of mention rather than an air dirty laundry type of comment about his character. Must be a new kind of sales tactic which is similar to how I sometimes play roulette or blackjack.

    Actually, your earlier post was dead-on in my opinion.

    Not only had I won the parallel geometry frame, but I had paid the whole sum for it as well. Then about ten minutes after the sale/payment the seller contacted me saying they no longer had the frame. It got even weirder after that in what they were trying to offer me instead, but I will leave it there.

    So, the seller knew they didn't have the item any longer, and yet let the auction go through from start to finish. Why they did this I do not know.

    Weirder yet is this member here is respected (I do respect some of this members post as well), and with good reason in many cases because their contributions are certainly worthy of MTBR rep points. Just for some reason out in the marketplace this person decided to take it to me, why I do not know.

    I won't due to two reasons, insane as my logic may be.

    1) It wasn't a business transaction here, so I leave it at that.

    2) There rep is there for good reason, lots of great posts and info to back up that green button. Their contribution here far exceeds that one screwed up transaction caused me a headache, there are other bikes.

    Last, my dumbass waited too long, I hadn't thought even of reporting it here, the case is cold on my end because I didn't realize where I could vent. damn stupid of me there.

    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 guy pulled all his listings!

    His ads were comedy gold.

    Like the Fisher Procaliber for $8000 that must have generated so many "what the hell is wrong with you?" emails, that he eventually re-listed it at $25,000 as some sort of F-you.

    He did sell a lot of other items at seemingly reasonable prices, so I wonder what happened to him?

    That's odd. He's always had a million things up forever and ever. listed, relisted, relisted, relisted....

    Maybe he died.

    If there's a new player with pbbikes prices, then maybe he got tired of his reputation and has a new ebay account.

    I've had the idea that some of those crazy prices on ebay listings (particularly complete bikes) are there to keep an interesting bike in the "store window" to induce buyers to look at their other listings.

    Dunno, I don't have the patience to sell there.
    Don't call it a gooseneck.

    My suspicion about some expensive listings is they are tied to brick and mortar shops looking for a cheap and easy way to offer their stuff online. They offer stuff on Ebay at the same full retail prices they charge in their shop, and think that it is reasonable. Many people are clueless about how vastly different the online market is, especially the Ebay market.

    So not too WTF, but I don't want it, but someone looking for a good Deore group, or just a bike like this, heads up. Looks virtually unridden....
