Translated into caveman for your edification:
"Oog buy bike for Ogg's woman. She ride once while sun out. Oog no like "front chain mover hand." Oog scrape off "chain mover hand perch" with stone. Frame pipe still good, Oog know this. You buy Oog's classic steel frame. Make one speed."

Might be worth it for the Paul derailleurs . . .
And the Grafton cranks, and Avid Tri-aligns. Still, not a deal IMHO. Not completely outrageous, but no great deal.

Also kind of fun that it is 'Carbon-Carbon-CNC-Carbon', but of no particular size. :rolleyes:
I love clicking on "Ask seller a question" to say "Wot size izzit?"

Says "VRC" in the auction title so perhaps a regular on this board?

http://cgi.ebay.com/Bridgestone-MB-0-Zip-Mavic-Paris-GAO-Dakar-M231-231-VRC-/130409306135?cmd=ViewItem&pt=Cycling_Parts_Accessories&hash=item1e5d001817#ht_2922wt_1137

I'm not aware that a Black 36H Gao Dakar hub "came spec'ed on a 1991 Bridgestone MB-0"

Wondering if we will ever see the rest of the parted out Zip - time will tell i guess
("I also have many other Suntour XC Pro stuff coming down the pipeline from my parted out zip.")

Implying that this wheel came off a parted out Zip?!

btw, threads like this are used on other sites (peachparts.com for example) to make the marketplace safer for all....guys are willing to check out cars for other members, offer feedback, and give genuinely helpful/honest advice. It's not a selfish thing at all.

mendon, good idea to start the thread (in my opinion) even though some regulars may get bummed that they are "outed" for trying to mislead other vintage bike enthusiasts

With all due respect, I think it is too late for that. He KNOWS! The operation is compromised. :madman:

I recommend engaging Self Destruct Protocol Alpha. We can reassemble at the bunker in Death Valley. Temporary authority for fixing all VRC prices for North America will temporarily be transferred to Retrobike.uk until the council can convene an emergency session.

Good luck gentlemen, stay close to ground. Enemy agents will be close on our heels!

I recommend an alternate location. Forcast is 123 degrees in Death Valley today. Bay area sounds much nicer.:D
