It would seem that we need a new thread/area that we can put the
e-bay madness offerings/purchases into. We keep throwing them up here and there but it could be great to have them in one area.
As we all know there are some amazing....amazing things happening out there.....(Fat Chance forks comes to mind)

Here is one now:

Hmm - I think I'll keep hold of the similarly unopened DX thumbies I have for a while longer at that rate. Could turn out a nice investment some day ;-)

the US$685 Hutch BMX *grips* posted recently certainly qualify...and trump those paltry $150 thumbies.

Is £75 for a set of NOS thumbies that much? A pair of XT rapid fires will set you back £55-60 today and I know which looks cooler and will last longer.

Took the words outta my mouth there Woody.

A well used pair will regularly sell for around the forty five quid mark on here.

These are unused - and they come with the cables...

...that's gotta be worth the extra thirty quid in my book...!

Really? I would have said 25-35 for good set used and 50 for NOS.
That still gets you to around 100 Bucks.
Anyway you Guys are right it isn't a full blown case of Madness....

Do you also want to include the crazy BIN prices? Like the prick who was trying to flog his Klein for 25 grand...?!
