    Cool bike.

    Just curious, what would be the arguement against putting a hit counter on an auction?

    I know how much you guys love these.

    Price seems a bit overly optimistic.

    The stuff he pulled off that frame looks pretty nice.

    That bike isn't worth $650 even with all the parts back on.

    Judging from the stuff he typically has on offer, I would have to imaging that he is at least aware of our existance.

    Wow, he has some REALLY nice stuff for REALLY high prices. I wonder if everyone 'Best Offers' him with a less than 50% of the BIN price and he still comes out ahead?

    And he liberally uses the word, NOS. Sometimes, that's just his own moniker for stuff that he's pulled off of bikes and the bike was clean. I think it's bad form. NOS should be just that. For example:

    http://cgi.ebay.com/NOS-MINT-SHIMANO...item255a00098c

    http://cgi.ebay.com/NOS-VINTAGE-SHIM...item2559e2c5a0

    Agreed. NOS=New Old Stock=new, never used or assembled preferably with original packaging. Which is very different from "removed from a lightly used "NOSish" bike. What ever "NOSish" means. That post is nowhere near NOS. Unless it stand for Not in Original Shape.

    Even if that were a Teesdale built Mt Tam, the price is way off.

    More than double what it is worth. Looks like it is in great shape, but that's more in 'parts bike' territory than 'holy grail' land like he thinks. I'm sure it is a nice ride though......

    That bike is right up my alley - I'm a fan of the geometry and build, and have been looking for a good deal on one around here for some time now. Too bad that guy won't get $800 for it...

    interesting, Bont is about half way through and going for a decent lick so far

    Nate, not sure if that's the link you meant to post, but yesterday I played Novelty, Ice Age, and Shadowplay for my seven year old, (he's got great taste in music for a kid )

    I'm not a member on any music forums, so my eBay excitement got channeled here

    Awesome playlist. I now appreciate what my dad was up to all those years.
    If you are into Joy Division and haven't done so already, I highly recommend tracking down the live albums (Les Bains Douches '79 and Preston '80).

    That is certainly proof that what goes around, comes around. Stunningly modern-looking bike for that era. Very, very cool, thanks Nate, never would have seen that otherwise.

    It started out with the best of intentions, explaining why it's an issue for some, and providing a singular thread to hash it out, as opposed to endless individual hijacks that caused all kinds of strife.

    It then evolved into a thread where folks could list ridiculous for sale items, and have fun making fun of them.

    Unfortunately, some folks seem to think it's for legit outing, since they don't read the whole thing, and get the vibe of it.

    This is all part of the general live and let live attitude I try to bring, not that I am without fault of course. Can't have it both ways, (lots of moderation that all agree on, coupled with a wild west mindset) sadly.....

    After reading the whole thing I thought it was rather vague as to OFFICIAL policy on outing ebay auctions.Reading the forum rules and the first paragraph of this thread I do not see how you could arrive at it being forbidden, only just not liked by some. If that is the rule then it should state it as such , not just singing around the issue talking about members feelings on the subject or stating a UNWRITTEN rule. Perhaps I am just thick...........

    Alternatively...why not just delete the thread to begin with. The existence of the thread combined with the multi faceted interpretation as to what it's meant for seems to encourage disappointment, outrage, insults, etc. So why not just delete it entirely? Unless maybe it exists to encourage those types of things?

    !!! The shop i worked at in the 90's had bought a Superbe Pro gruppo, and parted it out. The seatpost, headset, pedals, and brakes went. The derailleurs sat there in a box for *years*. No one wanted them. Everyone had to have Dura Ace STI. I think we ended up putting the rear der. on a messengers bike and charged him ~$40 for it. The only reason he wanted anything to do with it was the sealed bearing pulleys. ("Sealed bearings" was secret code for "magical" at the time.)

    Had I known anyone would pay that much for one in the future ...

    For $10 a pop, it should include the original product inside the buckets.
