    Deal of the century?

    Sorry, had a good laugh reading this guys CL post so I thought I'd share:

    Bad Ass Full Suspension Mongoose Trail/Race Ready Bike Trade 4 Kayak

    I bought a Giant NRS1 back in '01 for about 2 grand. Think I can still get what I paid for it if I put it up for sale? haha

    Hey! That bike worth at least a pack of chewing gum and a beer! Is it some kind of bad joke?

    Hey, I'm impressed, it isn't worth $2k, but I'm shocked that Mongoose even had a bike like that 10 years ago.

    That reminds me of the old Mongoose Amplifier I had back in the 900's. Single pivot, "Horst" link bike. I was a pretty decent ride, but my memories of it are somewhat clouded by the fact that I broke my leg riding it. Rider error, but still.......

    Odd how he's selling it for around what it was worth in 2002. I would offer him a lot less, or find him a reasonably priced kayak and trade him for it.

    Nice bike, though. Too bad I don't live near him.
