    I don't agree. Have you seen the stamped steel ones from that era?

    Let me google that and get right back to you

    Ok, I don't know if there were cheaper ones. I would expect them to be better. Anyhow I am glad to have one and that someone made them. Maybe there are reasons why he did not write "big company name" copy.

    Then the same guy has another set of Deore thumbies, NOS, but this time in a ziplock bag, and the price goes up for some reason.
    $199 Thumbies

    And most of the rest of his 7 pages of auctions are similarly priced. Anyone interested in a $6000 Fat Chance Yo Eddy?

    That's a little extreme. Somebody is trying to cash in during hard times.$ 300 for an xtr rear der. that's not that old? NOBODY will by that thing.

    This guy has been trying to sell this Parkpre for the better part of 2 years...

    http://losangeles.craigslist.org/wst...502460413.html

    and it gets listed on a pretty regular basis
    and it's not like he's trying to sell something else
    it's sad in a way and funny at the same time.

    This has a great many problems:

    1) 200mm fork on a XC hardtail built around a 100mm fork (if that fork really is that long)?
    2) Freeride on a Raleigh M600?
    3) $600 for a messed up bike originally from 2002 with MSRP of $879? (BikePedia - 2002 Raleigh M600 Complete Bicycle)

    Raleigh M600 Freeride Bomb proof Trail Rig.

    Raleigh M600. Sun single track wheelset with XT hubs - LX derailleurs - Truvativ stylo gxp cranks - bontrager crowbars - 200mm or travel courtousy of rock shox. and tons more ..

    bike is Sturdy as F*#k! Open to all types of trades

    Novelty? Yes!
    Worth this much? No!

    Great Tandem Bike

    "Ever ride a tandem and get tired of looking at the person in front of you's butt? Or maybe you ride in the front and get tired of the person behind you gawking at your buns. Well, this here tandem bike puts you side-by-side with the one you love/hate. And since the laws of the road and greenway say ride no more than 2 abreast, this bike is 100% legal! I will let this puppy go for a measly $5,000."

    Yeah, best to go with the OBO on that. Still an very cool bike. Dang that brings back memories. I think Robin McKeever raced one of those, but I could be wrong. He was nearly always way too far in front of me for me to tell.

    The original ad was gone by the time I came across it through a Google search, so who knows.

    $1750, though still relatively cheap for a rare tandem, seems much more plausible. Then again, it was listed as a "two seater" . . .

    No idea, but the indented swirls in the tubes kinda remind me of the ribbed tubing used in old Tange Prestige steel tubing.

    I'm sure your correct. I was actually thinking about Tange Ultimate tubing as used in the down tube of my '94 Kona Hot. Was columbus and/or miyata tubing ribbing swirled or straight?

    It's only a vague recollection, but I think they called it "rifled" (which would mean swirled).

    Spider looks cool, but why would you drill holes in a sprocket and mount it with the tabs unused like that?

    ummm, maybe because the sprocket was of a different bolt circle diameter and there wasn't space above the existing holes to drill new ones without compromising strength?

    Just seems like a lot of hassle when there are 9,365,437 sprockets out there with the right BCD...not to mention it just looks goofy with the "ears" hanging out for no reason.
    YMMV

    Seriously, and why spend so much on a pretty spider then go all half-assed on the ring?

    Good call. Googled and came up with several images of these. No drilling necessary. They already have both BCD. One less SKU for the shops. Still looks funny with the smaller bcd and tabs exposed.

    Yeah, those chainrings have become more popular because of the recent single speed, fixie fad.

    I prefer the any-size BCD "fits" option. Why limit yourself to 110 and 130?

    OK. I probably shouldn't be outing this here -- I mean, a 1974 Gary Fisher! That's worth a mint, right? I didn't even think he was making bikes then. But this is just too good a deal to pass up.

    yeah chainrings that are convenient to use for a variety of cranks is stupid. You would have thought that they would have figured that out since they have been making them since the mid 70's that way.

    Four from the continent and one from Germany in on the early bidding. Guessing the Illuminati, Scant, a few guys in Germany and maybe one from the Netherlands will be all over this at the end. Frank you are a stand up guy for doing this. Hats off to you and I hope it goes sky high.

    Because it's an actual live auction of a bike that is well within reasonable price not a tongue in cheek WTF outing that this thread is meant for.

    Better snap up those ~$500 Lightning Team frames out there on the interwebs. I'm sure they'll be worth $8.5K in a year or two!

    In case you missed out on the Breezer yesterday, here's a 1980's vintage Columbia mountain bike. A real bargain at $799!

    I've talked to a former employee of that shop once and he told me that it's the owner that comes up with those crazy prices? I've got to say, I don't think I've ever spent a dime with them.

    Between the Breezer and an S-Works 29er......I'd take the Breezer. Too bad I wasn't in the market for either, but I too hope that we see it grace these pages.....and maybe show up at Keyesville??

    This bbcbikes seller on ebay is still completely delusional.

    For $999, not including the $140 for shipping, you can have this very unexciting 1988 Rockhopper.
    Decals are not included.

    Wow that is totally a stolen bike. That is a late model Inglis Retrotec with discs and really nice build. The frame alone is probably worth $2k.

    I would spread this around the internet, I am going to post this in the Portland forum as a heads up.

    If there had been any bids, you'd be able to click on the bid history. That doesn't appear because there were no bids.

    There is no bid history because Buy it Now was used. Click on the guys "Items for Sale" and then click on "Completed Listings" . The prices of items that have sold are listed in green, unsold items are listed in red. Hope that clarifies your eBay experience................

    Hey - I was wrong. Guess there really is a first time for everything.

    I can see someone who had been searching for something rare for a long time paying what most of us would think to be too much for it. The time we spend hunting for parts has a value. Sometimes it's better to pay more than you were counting on so you can just get on with your life.

    I'm glad I prefer to use later (better-performing and lighter) components on the bikes I build and ride.

    Yep, and I bet there was lots of "Sport > Fahrradteile" in the history of the bidders.

    Holy crap, I mean even as a boron wrapped aluminum Gary Klein masterpiece that is insane. INSANE!. $2k for a fork, obviously some people have more money than brains. $600 derailleurs, $2k forks, what is the VRC world coming to? Do people believe that this will be some crazy 6 figure collectible in the future? I doubt that fork is ever more than $2k in its lifespan.

    Wow. I need to start looking for kleins at the bike swap, especially adroit models.

    Wow the winner bid only once too. The second to last bidder dumped in a $700 bid and it was his only bid too. WTF.

    Historic Bridgestone MB4 Mountain Bike,design by Ritchey

    I appreciate Bridgestones as much as anybody, but this is really overstated!

    A 14" frame and her 6 foot hubby "rides it fine"

    "limited edition titanium plated Shimano STX components"

    That's a WTF!!!
