    Ex-NBA player's Used Custom Zinn Bike off Ebay

    Bike forums -

    Prepare to drool your face off. I just scored this used Zinn custom ti bike off ebay, and it's Bill Cartwright's bike (former bulls center during the early Jordan years). Winning price was $1000! Here's the auction:

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...K%3AMEWNX%3AIT

    How do I know it's Bill's bike? Several reasons. I confirmed serial number with Zinn. I found some old threads on the net showing Bill's bike as an example of one of the biggest bike's ever seen, such as this foerign-language message board here:

    http://www.velogon.ru/?m=47&publsid[2]=57&show=2

    I took it out for it's first ride just today, and it was delicious. I am 6'8", and this bike borders on 'too big' for me, which I didn't even think was possible. It's got 210mm zinn cranks, all components are Campy Record. Here's a picture of my riding this stallion of a bike:

    I just had to get on here and brag a little bit, because I am just so damned proud of this purchase. My friends, mostly noncyclists, are getting tired of me talk about this new bike (which I've named Bill Cartwright).

    What is bicycle touring?
