Gee - I never knew that Shimano "RSX" and "Dura Ace" were one and the same. But I guess they must be!

Shimano RSX Crankset 170 FC-A416/417 Dura Ace Japan

In the words of the Ukrainian-American comedian Yakov Smirnoff: "Eye . . . don' tink zo."

(In fairness, I guess it's possible the chainring is Dura Ace. But if so, that should be explicitly stated in the ad - because the crank arms certainly are not.)

Bicycle oil can.

Bicycle oil can, sadly the seller thinks the price is reasonable. About $900.00 US

I think that the chain ring is Sora.

Not just one, but two alternate reality valuations!

Nothing like a Pro-Flex for bizarre, over inflated asking prices. Kind of an odd fan base for those.

Nearly fell of my chair when I saw this one - guess the details would have been too confusing? "One sixteenth of a bike frame, permanently included?"




Edit: I had a feeling the OP did not realize what they were looking at? sent a message and got a reply
