But then those we made those fixies dont ever sell them at some low price. I always see no brands and Reids on sale for $200+, when theyre worth that much new.

looks like an interesting pile of bits with a path racer frame recently painted http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/GrOoVy-RARE-RETRO-MID-CENTURY-MENS-FLASH-PRO-RACING-BIKE-BYCYCLE-10-spd-VG-/161015123054?pt=AU_Cycling_New_&hash=item257d3fcc6e&_uhb=1#ht_6714wt_1009

tempted if I knew what I could do with it

is there a glossary somewhere that explains the difference between dungas and popcorn? gaspipe is fairly self-explanatory..

so I had another look and I think I sussed it:

Dunga = pile of junk
DUNGA = bigger pile of junk
popcorn = grab the popcorn and watch the bidding action?

Spot on ;) there should also be a 'gaspipe POS' category for all the wannabe pickers out there. Batty's offering of Greg Williams' (footy player) fakedenago springs to mind...

Yeah I'm a bit slow Dan... Realised after that its probably odd that people post decent bikes in this thread.

Maybe we need an eBay gems thread or diamonds in the rough thread to split them both

Unsure about this, it's obviously in very very good condition but was XT really "the finest quality components available in 1992"? When did XTR first come along?

In any case $1,750 for a ye olde dually is a fair bit.

Love the phrase "built and then archived" - Built it, realised he totally didn't need it, didn't ride it, now selling it.
*sigh*, we've all made that mistake. Anyone in need of a Rigid SS 29er? :wink:

The pictures make it seem like a glimpse into the future, it must be filthy where ever that bike is because that looks like 20 years worth of dust to me.

1992! Eh, I guess it wasn't 'tried and tested', although their loss because with M900 it would be a good buy at the asking price. (That is, if you're into weird, mint condition but basically un ridable mountain bikes - I dunno, someone actually buys this stuff.)
Why ask that much but not even bother to throw a set of 26" knobbys on it?
