    I posted a picture of that bike in the jackass thread.... *3rd post on pg. 23*

    It's a bit on the pricey side, it's worth $450 at most...

    I'll just get a bikesdirect bike through if I were a undergrad.

    It's a bit pricey but like Leukybear said check out bikesdirect.com.

    Apart from the DP18s (heavy) I think it's a cool looking, well done bike. But there are better deals to be had. No way I'd pay 650 for it.
    Why "derailer" is the correct way to spell the gear-change mechanism: sheldonbrown.com/derailer.html

    and i've never owned either but i'm pretty sure that like hamish said the ec70 is 1+1/8th fork and the pista has a 1inch head tube, perhaps he bought the fork as a deal with the seatpost only to later realize the fork was incompatible, either way if you pay 500 and sell the fork to someone who can use it for 100 bones you'd get an ok bike for an alright price, don't go higher than 500 with the fork, or 400 without the fork as it won't do you any good.
