That saddle is at an annoying angle for a bike that is supposed to be endurance oriented.

^ Awesome bikes.

But any seller who says "do the math" is a *****. If I had that kind of scratch to dump on a bike, I'd be talking to Mitch, not you.

"I did the math, Mr Seller, and I won't be 'thinking of buying' your bike."

And when I see these bikes on CL, I wonder what's up, or what went wrong. Mitch has been building for five years at best, so the purchase of this bike is pretty recent. And I'm not going to do the math, but I guess the seller spent more than $6,000 on bike+parts, too. Not exactly pocket change, and due to the nature of custom bikes, not an "impulse buy" either.

How much bud is your track bike worth?

Whaaaats up y'all?

I just moved back to the area after living in Northern Cali (Humboldt county) for a minute. I had to leave my bike behind and brought back things indigenous to the flora and fauna of the region. I'm looking for a new fixed or track bike, steel, around 54cm. Hit me up if you know what's good!

Well? It's true that the frames are solid. They are not liquid or gas!

You can't give someone the frame for $100? It might be the only thing worth money in this instance.
