    this is not that kind of outing thread. It's more for ridiculous prices on stuff, etc.

    Installing the forks correctly on dept store bikes is apparently a pretty difficult task.

    A bit pedestrian for some but you don't see Alpinestars in my area often. Been watching the price drop for a while. Love the description.

    For the purpose of being able to see what was referenced, could you guys start copying some of the text of the CL ad? Most are deleted by now...

    This bike "turns heads".
    http://cgi.ebay.com/CUSTOM-Built-Mou...#ht_720wt_1017

    By that he means it "does something" akin to but different than head turning.
    I can only assume is it sexual. Some nice parts though. Sort of like a glammy hair-band mtb.

    Translated into caveman for your edification:
    "Oog buy bike for Ogg's woman. She ride once while sun out. Oog no like "front chain mover hand." Oog scrape off "chain mover hand perch" with stone. Frame pipe still good, Oog know this. You buy Oog's classic steel frame. Make one speed."

    And the Grafton cranks, and Avid Tri-aligns. Still, not a deal IMHO. Not completely outrageous, but no great deal.

    Also kind of fun that it is 'Carbon-Carbon-CNC-Carbon', but of no particular size.
    I love clicking on "Ask seller a question" to say "Wot size izzit?"

    If it had a desirable frame it would be a fine deal. Looks like it is in great shape too.

    Says "VRC" in the auction title so perhaps a regular on this board?

    http://cgi.ebay.com/Bridgestone-MB-0...ht_2922wt_1137

    I'm not aware that a Black 36H Gao Dakar hub "came spec'ed on a 1991 Bridgestone MB-0"

    Wondering if we will ever see the rest of the parted out Zip - time will tell i guess
    ("I also have many other Suntour XC Pro stuff coming down the pipeline from my parted out zip.")

    Implying that this wheel came off a parted out Zip?!

    btw, threads like this are used on other sites (peachparts.com for example) to make the marketplace safer for all....guys are willing to check out cars for other members, offer feedback, and give genuinely helpful/honest advice. It's not a selfish thing at all.

    mendon, good idea to start the thread (in my opinion) even though some regulars may get bummed that they are "outed" for trying to mislead other vintage bike enthusiasts

    With all due respect, I think it is too late for that. He KNOWS! The operation is compromised.

    I recommend engaging Self Destruct Protocol Alpha. We can reassemble at the bunker in Death Valley. Temporary authority for fixing all VRC prices for North America will temporarily be transferred to Retrobike.uk until the council can convene an emergency session.

    Good luck gentlemen, stay close to ground. Enemy agents will be close on our heels!

    I recommend an alternate location. Forcast is 123 degrees in Death Valley today. Bay area sounds much nicer.

    You're right. They should be lashed on top of a a greyhound bus and left to the buzzards. What would Jesus do?

    Okay, instead of Jesus, maybe we should write our senators and convene a special panel and look into this.

    It's not that complicated - it's as simple as someone getting caught in a lie:

    How is that a lie? Did I not answer the question that you asked? If you did not get the answer you wanted, maybe you should more carefully construct your questions. It doesn't take a lawyer to figure that one out.

    Okay, let's get right to the point: Are you the Seller on this auction falsely claiming that this wheel (black 36H mavic gao dakar hub strung to an M231) came spec'ed on the MB-0?


    Simple question, haha

    I thought you were implying that I had lied. I am not the seller and have not lied in this thread. If you are stating that the seller is lying because the black hubs were not originally speced on the zip, I don't know, but I'm sure someone around here does.

    Ahhh...well you did say you know the Seller is a member of the forum - so assuming you know who it is?! Anyway, it doesn't look like anyone is going for the BS item description as this is the second time he/she has listed it.

    Doubt we'll see 'the rest of the parted out Zip' but time will tell, haha
