    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:

    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...

    can't think of any, but for me it is just something else to ignore

    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).

    I was born in Preston, incidentally. Who are "JOE DIVISION" anyway?

    This just up in Toronto, lightest road bike ever?

    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.
