Agreed.

If it were my size, I would have it here already.

I think this is the one that came up for sale last year. It looked about beat then, still now.

If you've always wanted one perhaps reasonable, but I don't know if I'd pay that ask for a MTB in this condition even if it's highly desirable. Just my opinion though.

I've never given up on a seized post.

Patience and tactics win.

The MB1s I've owned were overbuilt.

The MB0 was as well.

I won't overpay on one either, but this is about what you have to pay.

It's an OK price with the issues that the bike has. I'd consider buying it. Frankly you can do better I think for a top end vintage mtb if you're willing to get something other than a b'stone (say a specialized stumpjumper or a trek 900 series).

Pic assist.








I vote no. That condition should get you a better discount.
