Ran into some dude on teh mtn today. He wa pushing his bike up the hill. The bike was painted flourescent green and pink. I thought it was a RainbowBrite Target store bike at first sight!
I stopped to talk to the guy then he asked about the difference between our bikes. Mine is a Trek 8000. Good enough for me but I know others that think it's a tank. Then he said he bought it at a storage sale or similar. I could then see thru the paint and noticed the XT components.
He said he had called Easton to price his find but they said they didn't sell bikes, only frames but they couldn't price the bike as they were all custom built. I picked up the bike and it was heavier than my 8000. He said he was figuring on $3000, I don't think so but he liked the sound of it
I couldn't piece together the entire story, I think he was delerious from pushing the bike up the mtn!
So I figure I'd ask here about the quality of Easton frames and or bikes. Anybody?
