    Adament on the price being firm. Listed previously for 250.

    Its a deal, assuming no significant frame damage. Buy it before it is gone.

    Well-the hideous seat had to go. Here are a bunch of pics...(did I do alright?)
    NPro 008.jpgNPro 020.jpgNPro 010.jpgNPro 004.jpgNPro 011.jpgNPro 017.jpgNPro 003.jpgNPro 018.jpgNPro 001.jpgNPro 002.jpgNPro 014.jpg
    The frame # is KD22355 (code of 74) and the crank (mighty competition code) is 72.
    Brakes are obviously not orig, nor is the rdr or wheels. Insanely light! It was advertised as a 29 s.o.; but turns out to be 30.5" Can still ride it/need a shorter stem tho.
