To me the BMW looks like a much better bike, whatis it about the Montaque that you like?

Hi, I am back at work in Seattle. I work 100 miles from home and cant always get to a computer. I bought that bicycle yesterday with paypal $130 and will pick it up tomorrow so it yours so long as it is worth it to you to ship. Or get a cheap flight to Seattle and pick it up here. I kept looking at the pictures and that bike looked in great shape. My email is colorodo@gmail.com. Frank

dynocoaster thanks!!!! I feel like its christmas . poastge is $141 for a 38 pounds for a 29"x 10"x 29" (i think if you take off the rear wheel you can fold it as small as possible). I used usps it was the cheapest when i lived in Kansas city but if you know of another cheaper way im open to suggestions.

http://ircalc.usps.gov/MailServices....=10&g=0&r=True

so its $271, even though Im a student how about we call it $300. so you buy yourself some PBR , sorry i cant come to pick it up flights are too expensive. I have added the funds to my paypal account sorry but they take 7-9 days to clear. But as soons as they are there the funds will be sent to your email. is that ok?

p.s can i see some pictures !!!!

i have sent my contact details to your email to prove im a real person

Picked it up this afternoon. The person selling it was very nice and picked it up new at a charity auction 12 years ago. Very nice condition . the pedals are not in very good shape and will probably hit the garbage unless you want them. I will start looking for cardboard tomorrow to start packing it. More tomorrow, took three hours round trip and time for me to hit the sack.

Hail Dyno!

Thatsut, you want some pedals for that I have a new pair of Wellgo Lu-998 MTB peds from my Scott MTB I'll donate, unless you want to put folding pedals or clips on it. PM me if yes. Alloy bodies, steel outers.
