A PX10??? .... Nah it's just a humble AO8 with serious delusions of grandeur :roll: . However it is a fixie (but with gears) :shock: .

It would not be at all strange if history came to the conclusion that the perfection of the bicycle was the greatest achievement of the nineteenth century.

Wow, that's some excuse from her.

I sold a steel MTB frame with partial groupset the other day for $20 (better than nothing, at least then it's not taking up space), the bloke asks if he can get just the shifters (sure why not) before i reply he sends another message asking "is that ok? just the shifters and brake levers, i've already paid the $20, that should cover the postage". When i remind him the listing clearly stated postage at buyer's expense and he needs to send me another $6, he comes back with "i thought i could sell you the frame and other bits back for $6?!". Absolutely lost for words.

But then on the other side of the coin i sold my old Stumpjumper frame and offered to drop it off when i was down on the goldy for the tour de tamborine, the bloke was too excited, couldn't wait so drove the 200km to pick it up.

i know he gets a buzz when from time to time he wins an auction of mine at a price i had previously refused to sell it to him for


... say, whaa..?! :? :shakesheadslowly:
Well, no, it's not a pushbike, otherwise I'd be pushing it...

HIgh end of the market maybe, but not unreasonable. It appears to be a fairly clean, original & unmolested example. I'd probably pay that much for it if I was in the market for one.

Agree there. Wasn't entirely clear in my message - perhaps only a touch off the money is what I meant.

"freshely painted and everything" !!! yep, straight over the seat post, cables, bidon cage, etc. And yours for only $200!

The rear blinky light fixing is also a nice touch.

Rob,
Interesting bike..

I saw the EXACT same one 2 weeks ago, serial : SR9030168
I did some digging and the previous seller bought it for 270, sold it for 337.50... not to the guy selling it now so i am very confused... is there a bicycle double???!!!?!!

curious to know what this one will go at..

I won this last night. Do I have a reason to worry?

"Surface rust in places". Pics tell it better. The seller is a BNA forumite I think?
