    Potts in classifieds

    Kinda surprised there aren't any comments on this steed. Is this really the going rate? Worth it? Believe me, if 5k was burning a hole in my pocket I'd be all over it.

    Ugly build, wrong 'cals, no current pics, and a hefty price tag

    It's been shopped around a few places, the seller isn't doing himself any favors

    What Holli and Nate said.


    Never a good sign when the seller is too lazy to take his own photos. Are we sure it's a Steve Type II and not a Wes Type II with that funking setup going on up front?

    So, is that not the bike that's for sale, but he does have the same unique build as that one??

    You were $800 short of the asking price anyway. Plus $50 shipping

    I can't believe you outed that one! I was hoping to get it for $20K without anyone else bidding up up any higher.
    Each bicycle owned exponentially increases the probability that none is working correctly.

    Sully at that price I think you could sell off half your fleet and retire to Easy street.
    Seek: Koski Trailmaster. Breezer Series 2, or 3. Fillet brazed Ibis Custom. Cunningham Racer. Otis Guy (but not that softride model). That's all I need I don't need anything else... except... except for an old Mountain Goat bar stem combo. And that's all I need. I don't need anything else. Except.....
