Unloved Basso on ebay

1 day to go and no bids. Certainly looks like a nice machine at a decent price for the right inseam. Alas I need a 62cm.

At $245 minimum, with Shimano and Biopace, it's no steal. Guy should have lowered his starting bid and kept a reserve on it. Who wants to start bidding at $200. Sure is pretty, though.

I helped my friend buy a nice blue Basso fixie conversion with tubular wheels. Light as a feather, that one.

He doesn't accept PayPal either which is a pain for one and scares of lots of people for another. I wouldn't be in a hurry to buy something for that much money from someone without PayPal who has feedback on only 2 items.

Yeah... Bassos are nice but that's the entry-level bike. $250 tops

Not worth it, especially as the most I've bought a Basso for was $50. The least? $15.
