We're not supposed to comment on price.

So I won't.

Good luck with the sale.

By making a suggestive comment like that it's like the OP has wildly overpriced his rather nice Attitude.....

Then I will say it

He is asking a pre 97 Klein price for a 2000-2004 Klein badged Trek and in doing so the bike is likely to be with them for a very long time

Advice was given in the 97 members sale section but it seems they are covering their bases by putting it in all sections, still no one has to buy it at that price as I am sure no one will

I hope that was less suggestive and more open in order to assist the op and again suggest they may benefit from using the how much is my xyz link for the 98 onwards section that was provided earlier

Apologies for that level of honesty, I can assure you it will not happen again

I think you would have far more luck in recouping some of your money if you were to sell it in bits. Most of the parts could be sold for close to what they were new maybe 10-15% less as they've been fitted. The market for complete bikes is very tough at the moment.

right people, keep it clean and non abusive. (previous comments have now been deleted due to being unsavoury)

might i also remind you of the classified rules regarding keeping comments to a minimum, if you're not interested in buying this guys bike don't comment, if you want to have an argument about the pros and cons of kleins do it in retro mtb chat/98+chat and keep it clean there aswel. you have ruined this guys for sale thread. recommendations of splitting/pricing could have been done politely via pm if you felt that strongly.

greeno, welcome to the forum, hope you stick around.
