So what's up with the classifieds?(8 posts)

So what's up with the classifieds?DrD

Is it just me, or are there an inordinate number of high end bikes for sale all of which have been ridden some miniscule number of miles? Are shops dumping inventory or something (demo bikes, etc.?) - not that it's a bad thing (I like the classifieds) just struck me as odd.

There are lots of multiple entries of the same bike (I'm sure, to keep their bike near the top of the list). But still seems like alot. Guess some people just upgrade or change bikes often.

It's pretty rare that shop guys would sell equipment that they bought on a pro/employee deal. It's not really legal or ethical to do so- that being said, I have a 56cm OCLV Frameset, barely ridden, on the block.
BS, happens all the time.LBS dude

could be the one reason. Of course if it got down to that in my household something else would be on the selling block other than my Litespeed.

By the way what's the going price for a wife of 15 years? Boy, I hope she doesn't see this post or I'm history!!

A wife of 15 years is priceless. They should be treated with care.
