Sometime I think it is takes one who has owned his own business to understand that what the market will bear is what the price should be. If your not one of the big dogs get off the porch and don,t bid.

As for E-Ritchie's frame. Go get em' Ritchie and make as much MONEY as you ca n. Isn't that what a free market is all about.

As for below great com ments Tom and David. David I'm sure all the E-Sniper are already tuned in!

Dan, This bike is a legend...it has been featured on many many websites and articles. It has been meticulously restored to as new perfection by the guy who is pro bably the World's most respected bike builder. He has been a mechanic on many highly ranked racing teams and has sponsored World Champion Cyclocr oss racing teams for years. His credentials are as impeccable as anyone in the world today as far as bicycles are concerned. He is also highly t rusted, liked and respected just because of the many positive aspects of his own personality, even without all this. His generosity is also very well known. I have talked to numerous folks who have seen this bike and its sister bike, both of which Richard owns. Read the bidding history and you will see some of the very top and most knowledgeable collectors in t he field. Perhaps you see some flaw in the bike, but this would seem to be an observation that these folks either do not see or hold to be insign ificant. Might I suggest that perhaps you might not be really up on what the top tier of bikes like this are likely to fetch? I am sure I have pa id more than the current $3,000 bid for lesser bikes and been darned glad to get them. Perhaps more temperate phrases than "Overpriced" would be a ppropriate when discussing such an item? Tom Sanders Lansing, Mi

And the real bidders won't even show up to the e nd! What it is going for now has no relation in most cases to what it wi ll actually fetch
