I am looking for a new urban/dj bike because my kona shred isn't really cutting it anymore. I have been looking at the eastern night train for a while now but since i don't have a job its kind of hard to get one. I just recently looked at the eastern thunderbird. I haven't seen one in person but i was wondering if anyone has rode one or currently has one and also is it a good deal, it seems like a bargain for only $700 but is it be to good to be true?

I am selling a NEW Night Train for less than the price of a Thunderbird. I can take a credit card payment also. See my sig for a link to my MTBR classified ad.

If you read the classified it says shipping included. Shipping bikes isn't all that expensive if you avoid ups.

Doh! I forgot I included shipping in the price. So yea, $649 shipped. We ship out of here daily and a box that size is probably going to be about $30 via UPS so I could probably absorb the cost.

Now if somebody would just buy the damn bike LOL. I can't believe I haven't had any takers for a brand new Night Train at $649!!! Thats half the price of a new one, and cheaper than the lower line models like the Thunderbird. I guess the market for these bikes is pretty small.

Having a company with a UPS account that does a lot of volume is the best. The mailroom in my office sent my 888 from Jersey back to Zoke in Cali overnight for 12 bones. You can't beat that.

I'm also surprised you can't sell that bike. Thats a sweet deal.

How tall are you? I've been looking for something really similar but cant seem to get something I feel right on. I haven't seen one of these in person and am wondering if they would be something a 6'4" guy like myself would like.

Well if you want a simple and ghetto way to weight it, stand on a normal scale, write down your weight, pick up the bike and weigh it with you, and subtract your weight from the weight of you and the bike.

i would LOVE to get that but you are over 300 miles away and I'm guessing shipping would be insane
300 miles is really close and it would be relatively cheap for normal ground shipping. At a distance of 300 miles you would probably spend more in gas to go get it and it will get to you in about 1 day with normal 3 day shipping. It's only 300 miles.

I haven't actually figured out what it will cost to ship the bike, but we ship UPS Ground out of here daily. All the carriers like Fed Ex and UPS go by box size and weight to determine a dimensional weight for the package, and that (along with the distance it needs to go) determines the cost. This thing will ship in a pretty large box so I'm guessing its going to be around $30 to ship to most places. But as I stated in my ad, I will absorb that shipping cost and the total cost would be $649.

On a side note, high gas prices are really starting to affect shipping costs. I've noticed a healthy increase in our shipping costs lately, and I'm sure high fuel costs are a large part of that increase.

Is that $649 in US dollars or Australian dollars?
Being in Australia is usually a bit of a downer for postage as well.
