Sub 11-lb full-suspension, aluminum frame mountain bike! In fairness, "accessories" might include wheels, seatpost, saddle, chain, & pedals.

I think he means 10.8 kg. From what I see in the Santa Cruz line-up, that's a very good price. Perhaps you could say it's a "steal"

I think with the mention of Dura-ace there might be a little BS going on.

1980s Passoni Titanium Bicycle catalog

https://www.ebay.com/itm/27560548508...4AAOSwjIZiMAJr

$150 for a very interesting catalog - apparently Passoni was at one time, and presumably only for a short time, a distributor of Riva's Trecia titanium bicycles. An expensive treat for some real titanium nerd. I offered the seller some money in exchange for making better scans before it sold and they blocked me... apparently they're a bit paranoid.

Anyway if you end up buying this please PM me and I'll venmo or paypal you some $ in exchange for nice scans, which I'll put on my website.

America's answer to the Moulton. I thought all Sears bikes were folding bikes--just back the Buick into them.

The cranks are worth more than the rest of the bike.

$300 isn't a bad price for a 610, if it's in nice shape, though Trek never should have used a one-piece head lug on a bike at that level.

Haha, did not even notice anything. Is it just the down tube ones that are off? I can't even see the model to be honest.

Decals are either wrong format or placed wrong.
