    Price Check On This Bike Please

    can someone tell me the approximate value of this bike?

    bike made by a company called FETISH.the model name in position and was made strictly for track but I threw on a new carbon fork(sorry , I dont know the maker)with option for front brake. It has SUGINO AT cranks , SUZUE Flip Flop rear hub laced to a ALEXRIMS rim, FSA internal headset , TITEC stem and drop bars, I threw a used titanium felt seat on the bike and brand new tires on both f and r rim. The frame is aluminum








    thanks

    That front fork looks very similar to the fork that comes on the Specialized Sirrus, a hybrid. The Sirrus uses v-brakes and disk brakes, depending on the model. I happen to own one with V-brakes. The fork is designed with a huge amount of clearance between the top of the fork and the tire and it is not made for caliper brakes. Your fork looks identical to the one on my Sirrus except it lacks the needed add-ons on the fork blades for a v or cantilever brake....strange. Yet, look at the clearance between the fork and the wheel. Its huge! There are several inches of space in there. You are going to need one seriously LOOONG reach brake for that thing. I doubt that youll find a front brake with that much reach. WHere did you get this fork. It deson't look like you'll be able to fit any sort of brake on there. I hope I'm wrong of course.

    sounds to me like he just copied and pasted the seller's description

    It's a decent frame with fairly cheap components. I'd agree with $350.
    I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.

    If you buy it replace the rear hub asap. They are garbage.
    I'm not one for fawning over bicycles, but I do believe that our bikes communicate with us, and what this bike is saying is, "You're an idiot." BikeSnobNYC

    $23.81

    Then sell it to me in exchange for the check that my sister wrote me for that amount.
    I love random Christmas gifts.
