Interesting Commuter on Ebay

This is an interesting looking bike. It's a strange mix of stuff but it shore is pretty. http://cgi.ebay.com/Trek-970-Surly-P...QQcmdZViewItem

(this is NOT my bike, i just thought some of you might enjoy looking at it.)

Seriously, that's hot. Too bad it's too big for me.

That bike is like 5 minutes from my office and I'm looking for a commuter. I'd like something newer but that thing is pretty sweet!

Grrrr. It's too small and I'm too broke right now.

You won't find a new bike as cool as that one. Go get it!

It might be a little small for me. I guess I could go look at it since it's so close, but that would be at my lunch and the auction will be over by then.

Also, is it me or is there a dent on the down tube? Look at the pic of the right side of the bike and tell me if I'm crazy.

It went for $801. I thought about getting it, but I have to run a rack and panniers which would kind of ruin the lines of that bike.

I don't know what it is, but I found that bike to have a very nice look to it as is....which I would then have to ruin by cluttering it up with lights and luggage.
