    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

    Good find, you should post this in the "post your craigslists wtf's" thread
    What doesn't kill you makes you stronger. Unless it does kill you, in which case, you wouldn't be here to dispute the point.

    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.
