If he bought that bike at I Martin, he probably did pay $3000. The folks at I Martin probably think the big I Martin sticker on the seat stay increases the value of the bike by about $1000. IMO, it's generally a good idea to avoid buying bikes where overcompensated Hollywood-types buy their bikes.

I like that line "going back home." I wonder why.

Maybe because this person can't get a job because they're illiterate!

Doesn't anybody proof-read any more?

what was the exact sentence in the Bible ?

I'm sorry to say that, but I've noticed that American people's spelling is in average terrible. So I hope people who are laughing in the above messages never make any spelling mistake ??

sheesh. This isn't just about a "spelling error" or "typo." That bike post is partially unintelligible.

And folks aren't just joking about bad spelling, it is clear that the advertiser knows nothing about bikes in general, or maybe even this bike in particular.

You are right about American spelling. I cringe, even at signs I see in stores with misspelled words. But quoting Jesus? Whew. Lighten up.

I wonder how the seller came to his conclusions about what he's selling. Must not have read many of the websites he referenced.
Looks to me like he did a goggle search...........Dave Hickey

and based his discription on the new black lightning not the original.

Is that CF?SamDC

Didn't know GT made a CF bike that aero?!?!?! Looks more like the Vengence TT bike. Anyway rate, good deal if it stays around $500. I remember a couple of months ago a Vengence frame went for around $850 - $900.
