A Day At Airborne...Akirasho
Jun 8, 2002 10:09 AM
... here's a breakdown of some of my haul from Airborne's garage sale...

1 Campy Record threadless headset... $30 (retail, $65)
1 Profile Carbon Stryke aerobar... $30 (retail, $130)
1 Reynolds Ouzo Comp... $70 (retail, $240)
1 Airborne Manhattan Project frame... $1200 (retail, $1900)
1 Giro Pnuemo (white)... $80 (retail, $160)... yeah, yet another brain bucket...

... various other small items.

... other items seen but not purchased...

Spinergy Xyclone wheelsets with bags and skewers... $200
Rock Shox Judy forks... $60
Easton CF road handlebar... $70
Campy CF seatpost... $70

... and a variety of stems, bars, tubes, tires, frames (MTB and road)... along with free bike storage/shipment boxes (I took two).

I didn't espy the Manhattan Project till I was done browsing and was making a second sweep of the area with friends... guess that's another bike I'll have to maintain...

We abide.

Remain In Light.

I want that Manhattan Project. Too bad I'm nowhere near where I would need to be to get such a killer deal.

Enjoy the bike (and all the other sweet stuff)
is this what happens...gtx

when you have a garage? Or, a garage, a good job and no kids? I bet you could make some money if you put a bunch of that stuff on eBay.

I gots the garage, but the bikes stay in the basement...

The job is tenuous but pays well so might as well get it now while I can...

I miss not having any kidz so perhaps being able to purchase a few trinkets is my upside to that story...

But if I sold it on eBay, what what I have left to play with??!!??

We abide.

Remain In Light.
