Hmmm. That doesn't look like any track bike I've ever seen.

That 'track bike' line has to be someone with a deep rooted masochism or a deep rooted sense of irony.
Maybe he was racing six year olds?

I presume the seller means it was used by someone to toodle around at a race track (auto, horse, whatever), but who knows?

I've seen pictures of auto race-team members using mini motor-bikes. Perhaps this was a lower budget race team.

Well, here's a disgruntled Strida owner, who whilst giving his own appraisal of the bike, seems to be doing his best to ensure that it doesn't sell !!!

Are punctures really a problem with Stridas

Brompton M6R Plus on eBay...

Looks like the person posting it chose the word collapsible instead of folding so doing a generic search for folding bike would not have brought this up.

Quite a few questions asked and answered, not a single bid.

ugh, the starting bid is way too high for a used bike. they should have started at $20, that would most definitely set off a bidding frenzy and ended up at $800+ within a couple of days..

Even though I'm currently the high bidder on this, I'll go ahead and post this too...

A Swift Frame with wheels and seat...

http://cgi.ebay.com/Xootr-Swift-Fold...QQcmdZViewItem

I list it here, because I'm sure my high bid will be overtaken soon, and I don't plan on pursuing it beyond that.

When the shipping cost is high, this is the formula I use...

Shipping Cost - Real Shipping Cost = Shipping Overage

Actual Bid = Max Bid - Shipping Overage

That said, I agree that the shipping is fairly silly on this item.
