This the same bike that's been on eBay twice now and not met reserve. The first time I ran across this guy and this bike it was on the Canadian Cyclist's website where he was asking a whopping $1400 (CDN)!! for the thing. I enquired about it (for a lark) and was told that the bike was on eBay. If I recall both times the bidding didn't crack $250 US. Oddly enough I can't seem to locate it in eBay now.
