Now. *That's* impressive.

And someone from the good old U-S-of-A was the high-bidder. Makes me proud that an American collector was ready to let it all hang out with the other big dogs..

I wouldn't mind seeing the bike those are going on! More likely they'll end up in a glass case.

On a related note... if all those guys had used a sniping service I bet you anything those pedals would have gone for less.

I had a similar experience just recently with that Colnago tandem that sold on ebay. I made a nice, stiff snipe bid, fairly certain I'd land the bike.

But two japanese collectors got into a war, and bid the bike up. An american was in there somewhere too. Seems nutty to me. Why provoke the competition? Seems like very little fun to pay more than you should, just 'cause the other guy wants to prove he's willing to pay more than you are..
