    The Price is Right? (I don't think so)

    http://www.usedvictoria.com/classified-ad/7718697

    Seems a little steep for what it is. I can't tell what other components are on it. What are your price checks?
    I can either bike fast, or chew bubble gum, and I'm all out of bubble gum.

    Seems quite pricey to me. He sure doesn't offer much info about the bike. I would offer him $300 and see what happens from there.

    ^agreed. Would prefer more component details (hubs?)
    I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.

    its hard dealing on something like this with someone who thinks so much of their bike and clearly wants more than its worth. He doesn't list components cause he may not know what they are or they're really cheap that if he were to list them he couldn't place the price at $700 FIRM!

    Fetish SS frames have sold on eBay for around $109.99. Fetish makes good frames, though.
    Bike seems wayyyy over-priced to me.

    But..... is that US dollars or Canadian dollars?
