    I'll bet he gets that all the time, first thing I thought, actually, Walmart.

    I have an *odd* local customer who has something similar that he vehemently defends as a non Walgoose......

    As for that Stumpjumper, Saturae rims were Primo BITD. I used to have a stem like that although with less reach. I had to use an indoor trainer due to a vertebra fracture and simply couldn't bend over enough to use a conventionally proportioned bike.

    As the recovery proceeded, the stem was pushed down until it could go no further and then it was cut off on the bottom inch by inch.

    Well, the seller said it best. "Old school classic bike looking for new home. Bike was recently tuned up and is ready to ride."

    Oh man, I needed that laugh, and who knows this might just be a improvement over the original version. Lol.

    It should be made official that it's the worst design ever to make it in a reputable brand's production bike.

    I never completely understood why nobody liked them until I rode one a few years back. The awfulness of that suspension while not on a perfectly paved road cannot be overstated...

    I needed a laugh very badly right then, and this delivered in spades, thank you.

    Don't think we have to worry about it being sold rather the ad expiring. For me, it's the kickstand that does it. I hear Gary Klein likes his bikes being ridden and not being garage queens but I can't imagine him saying, "Kickstands...now there is an idea I should have put stock on my bikes."

    Painted fork stanchions seems like a bad idea.

    Yeah, how much does he want for it? $500? Uh, that's about $485 too much.

    /$15 for the parts.
