    If you have never had a Ventana or gotten a close look at one I can tell you they are absolute top shelf quality. I had a Ventana El salt. Weld quality and attention to detail are incredible. That bike is literally 5 miles from my house but I have no money until next Thursday. I strongly suggest you send one of your Cunninghams, Potts or any of the other crappy bikes you collect to me so I can make the trade for you.

    I'm probably 10 mins away myself - too bad I don't have any room in the garage!

    Current situation notwithstanding, asking it in a neutral format, IE: "someone in my area is selling this .... What's the deal, anyone heard anything", etc. Versus posting the ebay/CL link?

    The difference seems cut an dry to me. A little discretion goes a long way.

    He's asking $550 for an MB2 and $138 to ship it! I love his liberal use of exclamation points:

    "I HAVE A BRIDGESTONE MB-2!"

    "MINE HAS A DIFFERENT SEAT (THE LIBERATOR SEAT)!"

    "SOME ARE SELLING THEIRS AT OVER $1200 AND OTHERS AT CLOSE TO $1000!"

    "IT LOOKS LIKE I FORGOT TO ADD THE FRAME SIZE!"

    "PLEASE ONLY WATCH IF YOU INTEND TO MAKE A BID, THANKS FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING!"
    Yeah, that guy with the '86 MB-2 is a piece of work. That's at least the third time he's listed that thing with no takers. I always take notice of it, because I sold this near-mint '86 MB-2 last year for less than half of his starting bid:

    "Others are selling theirs at over $1,200..." If he really believes that, he's got to be wondering what's going wrong with his auctions. I can't understand how people can keep paying the listing fees without dropping their starting bid.

    EDIT: ...and I'm happy to say I watch it every time. Glad to learn it must really annoy him to have lots of watchers with no bidders...

    And I'm all of eight miles away, have no room in the garage and am trying to save money.

    Ok, which of you jokers put up an ad saying you are looking for a "couple things" for your MTB, and put up pictures of hundreds of VRC parts?

    Here's a deal

    Too many bikes, and just enough time to ride them.

    One was listed here in San Diego. MB-2 all original near mint. $45 dollars. Shot an email to my neighbor who has been looking for a good cheap bike and he got it.
