    Yeti ASX - Do I need it?

    Last night I was helping out recommending bikes and came across this Yeti on Ebay. No one was bidding, so I threw out a bid. I was outbid, but today got one of those 2nd chance options.

    Hmmmmmm, $1,300 for another bike I don't really need. Should I do it?

    Mavic Dee Max Wheels
    Sherman Fork
    Hayes 8" hydros

    XT shifters and Derailleurs
    Looks like Hussefelt cranks


    Good bike for the money, I just don't really need this bike.

    Opening bike was $1250. For kicks I bike $1,275. Bid closed at $1,300.00

    Shipping is $40.00

    I sent the guy an email. We'll see what happens.

    Anyone want to buy a well maintained Enduro SX???????

    Wow 11 bikes, I have two...
    A harttail GT that is attached to the trainer, and my busted frame Performance M-107. How do you chose what to ride, or does the favorite war horse get called to duty 9 times out of 10?

    god... 11 bikes.. I'm jealous. I wish I had 11 bikes to choose from and just ride whichever I felt like on a given day. Lucky. I have one bike, though I'm planning on adding a road bike to the collection this year.

    I know a couple who has about that many bikes.. I heard the complete list, but I don't remember all of them. A tandem, a few mountain bikes each, road bikes, trials, BMX.
    I'm trying to get them to register here..

    I'd have to agree... that's not a bad deal and I have to say I'd have issues passing it up if I had the money to spare.

    Well, not all 10 are in riding order. I've got one broken frame that needs to be sent back for a warranty upgrade. Another frame that a friend gave me because I helped him out with some wrenching duties that I need to build up, and a roadie frame that is awaiting to be turned into a fixie.

    So, it's really just 7. I ride whatever the day calls for. Beautiful sunny day with no time constraints, then I hop on the road bike for a 35 to 50 mile ride. If I want to get some miles in, but the weather is "iffy", then I grab my Cyclocross.

    If we're hitting the trails it's usually my Enduro SX. If it's playing around and some urban, it's my Hardtail...etc. It all depends.

    Wow, thats good, I only have 2 bikes, but alreafy i have a distinguished favourite, my DMR feels alot more stable than my Dardrock, even after ive put all the upgrades on, im not sure if thats because its new though... Although i do still use both of them.
