    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.
    Looking for:

    • Syncros Revolution, drive side 172.5

    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.

    This better come with a bike but no....even decals are EXTRA.

    Yeti Accutrax Vintage MTB Bike Fork for Fat Mountain Grafton Klein Ringle Porc | eBay

    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!

    hahaha. My eyeballs hurt from laughing.

    I think I'm going to offer $49.99 for it.

    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.

    $175 Thumbies

    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....

    Next town over from me, so if I can help with shipping etc, let me know.
