A hybrid is not an upgrade! (hybrids are dull, boring and not good at doing anything - a marketing creation) Put some slicks on the Kona and it'll ride like a tarmac shredding beast and still be fun. :D

It's not - so ride it.

It would truly be rarer than a rare thing to have a bike that was too rare or too valuable not to blag some slicks on it, and use it day-to-day.

Can someone give me an idea on how much these might be worth?

Set of CODA cranks and rings in excellent condition. These are the ones which were horrendously expensive back in 1999 when they came out if that's any help!

Thats not entirely true is it, they are great at what they were intended for, and many people use them to get to and from work every day. Just because you and I would rather build something up (because we know and love bikes), does not mean that most people don't want to just walk into a shop and buy a hybrid, to them bikes are tools.

I have a friend that is getting ready to sell and wants to know WIW.

Second gen Shock-a-billy with an original Judy Sl painted to match plus two other forks lots of spare suspension parts bushings pivots axles and three rear shocks. Two of the rear shocks are one of a kind custom rear shocks. The shock-a-billy is serial number SBL013. My understanding is there were 5 prototypes, 3 team bikes and mine is the last of the first batch of 5 retail bikes. It has a custom, one of a kind, Fat welded, gusset on the swingarm that was done added a few years after it was new, that should not appear on any other frame. I spoke with Chance about it directly and we worked together on the placement of the gusset. The shock-a-billy is shown with the current fork (the original is painted to match).

Thanks in advance- I don't follow the Fat market to close. I am waiting for better photos and a complete list of parts before I post in the for sale section

I'm glad that SAB above is too big for me or I'd be making all kinds of stupid offers for it! ;)

Yeah- it's big, I assume it's a Large because of the #. He also has a Slim Chance and it's a 58.
