I agree with you MikeC, your good deed deserves recognition.

After it was stolen, whenever I drove anywhere, I kept an eye out for my bike, and as you can see, I kept the paperwork just in case it was recovered. Wish I had kept the seat post, saddle and spare dederailleur hangar I had.

It is no coincidence that I put a note up on this forum when I decided I wanted to sell the bike. I need the money more than I need another bike, and wanted you to know I was selling it. Here's is your reward:

If you happen to be the high bidder, then you get a 33% discount off the final value. Fair deal?

I know I thanked you already, but this lets you know I really mean it.

Regards.

lawson, nice bike. I made the mistake of trading from the 1997 Ground Control (with MAX Backbone frame) to the 1999 bike. Turns out that the frame size was really only made in a large in 1999 and the smaller bikes simply had altered seat tubes/angles.

Why do I say this? Cause the 1997 bike I had sported the same bright red that your bike has. A medium frame in 1997 performed much better than the 1999. And the SID air shock was never as good as the FOX piggyback coil-over-shock.
