Not mine thought it's pretty sweet with the 14 speed conversion. There was an auction of seven bikes with 4 twentys in it (collection only) that finished on only 23 last night on ebay.That's 3.29 a bike!

LittlePixel, if you spot another multibike auction, let me know. I love those!

That bike was on ebay about two weeks ago. I'm almost sure it sold I recognise the photo setting, the washed out colour and the details. I was watching the sale on 'My Ebay'. It's definately the same bike. The guy lives about ten miles from here. I think it went for about 135 - not certain, but it was somewhere around that figure when I last looked. I also recognise the issue about his eight speed block with the possibility of using only seven because of frame clearance.

Maybe someone agreed to buy and then dropped out, or perhaps he pulled it off the auction. It did have a clause stating that it would be withdrawn if it failed to attract enough respect.
