A quick explanationa

Sorry that in the picture the bike is seen with V Brakes and 7 speed rapidfires
I used the bike as my commuter/hack bike and needed the better braking and shifting on the crowded roads in Cambridge.
Apologies to the purists, but at least it was regularly used

Seems to be an awful lot of bargains out there and I know everyone has their favourite
tale to tell
So to start, this was bought for ?6 or approx $10 at a local auction

1993 Kona Fire Mountain, completely original apart from needing a new chain to replace the broken one it came with

I love finding deals like that...some I can think of off the top of my head:

1991 Specialized Epic Carbon (with Cook's E cranks, full XT/thumbies, Flite saddle, 1" Mag20) for $250

1992 Klein Rascal (completely stock) for $220.

1992 Slingshot (with solid silver headbagde, Suntour XC Pro, 1" Judy) for $300

2 Klein MC1/MC2 bars for $15

NOS, never used white OnZa tire for $1....my best ever.

FSX/Mag21 carbon fork for $20

And a huge box of old MTB and Road decals (300+ stickers) for $5 bucks...which I sold off a little at a time on eBay for between $1 and $15 each...

Enough bragging for me! :rolleyes:

Unfortunately the profits were squandered on the <i>World's Largest Tension Disc Collection</i>. ;)

Doh!
Which remindes me...there was an auction for a dark 'comp' tension disc where the high bidder ended up flaking, of which it's been offered to me...I may have a 6th soon.
It's a good thing I made money on the decals!
