I've never written 'F'in' before. I'll have to work on my shorthand curse words. I thought both bikes were priced decently in their original ads. It is frustrating to see them marked up so much in the same (more or less) local market.
I would be mad if I sold one of my bikes to a guy that gave me the speech.."I love it, can't wait to ride it. It's my dream bike...ect." only to see it listed for more than double a few days later.

Agreed, and you spelled it just fine, we can make it up however we want. Can't imagine either will sell at the new prices, while I basically agree on the first prices, I'm still surprised they sold for those prices, never mind the new foolishness.

And yet I have a Gordon Chinook, same size, I barely got even a nibble at $800. Maybe time to re-post.

Facebook Marketplace has a new heading "From Highly Rated Sellers" which is nice since it sorts out the flippers, we prefer to buy bikes from people with no ratings

I'm not stressed by it as I am happy keeping what I have and one day prices will probably rise again.

I doubt we'll see $1000 bikes for sub-$200 but there are some crazy prices this fall, waiting to see what the winter brings.

I am merely suggesting that anyone looking for a great deal should be ready now.

Didn't realize how nice these are until I recently picked one up. Huge step up from earlier super courses.

Things have slowed a lot here as well, despite the unseasonably warm autumn. Not seeing exactly "crazy" prices, but definitely lower than this time last year.
