No.

Besides, who would admit allegiance to Bud Light?

$976 retail on a M400? 5 years ago I owned a bike shop and carried Cannondales, M400 was maybe around $575 retail. And the fact it says Bud on it, generally means that Bud had a few painted up and put on display and provided them for free to the beer distributers for advertising fodder. Then again, if you are looking for cheap birth control without the vasectomy guys...ride an unsuspended Cannondale.
LOL. And CAAD2 at that. Ouch.Kristin

I guess the moral of the story is: Hang a cheap bike on the wall for 5 years and what you end up with is a cheaper bike.

You are joking, right? :>)

No, this bike is absolutely NOT worth $600 (unless you think it has some sort of collector value because it says "Bud Light" on it - I highly doubt that's the case!).

It doesn't look like there's a Headshok on that fork, and judging by the few lower-end components, I'm assuming the rest of the components are also lower-end (as these promotional bikes usually are).

I'd guess it's value to be around $199....

Just my opinion. Someone else might actually think it's worth $600.....(that's crazy!) :>)

I wouldn't use the "buy it now" option because I don't think it's worth 6 bills. OTOH, bidding is at $99 now. It's worth that. I'd ask a few questions before bidding. I don't recognize the cranks. You can't see the brakes. They may be old XT. Is the head tube 1-1/8"? The pics stink and the description doesn't make them any clearer.

Is this for you? A 20" frame is big. That's what I ride and I'm six feet tall.
No no no. I don't want the thing.Kristin

I got a good deal on that old Trek 900 with XT/LX. Better frame and decent parts. The C-Dale seller says the hubs are Alvio, so I doubt there is any XT on the bike. I came across this sale while searching for lights. I don't know much about bikes, but doubted it was worth $600. Some poor fool thought this was a collectors item. Not without Lances sweat on it! So anyway, I thought I'd post it here and see if frames that say, "BudLight" are really worth lots of money. Can you believe its never been ridden? What a waste. It could be a worse waste, but still a waste.

Just a thought about paint jobs, while we're on it. Bikes that have been spray painted with primer in someone garage will need lots of maintenance.
no, just like most bikes ridden by the people on this board. nm.Steve_0
