I always get a kick out of these things. I always wonder how someone decides the bike is worth that much. Did he do any research at all?

'course, there's always the chance some sucker will take him up on it, or, offer him far more than the bike's worth, and think they got a bargain...I've probably done that once or twice, myself.. paid too much, that is.

Still, pretty outrageous.

Just for fun... were that bike my size, and I was in the market for one, I probably wouldn't pay more than $800 shipped, tops, for it. And probably more like $500, to be brutal about it.

If the Galli brakes are the full-titanium-hardware jobs, that makes it a bit more attractive, but no more valuable.

I wonder what his response would be if someone tried to tell him the facts of life..
