We have another auction site down this way.. TradeMe.co.nz.. Ebay are trying to snap it up I think, but I digress..

Found this..

http://www.trademe.co.nz/Sports/Cycling ... 816822.htm

Bit on the Robert Wadlow side, but at nearly NZ$3 to the GBP1, not a bad price..

Yeah, I think it was the "furry" paint that was menna be everything proof? A gimmick, but if you and I remember it, it clearly worked! :?

What other auction sites are there for NZ mate?

Think it was called 'Zylotone' or something...erm, not too sure there are any other NZ auction sites mate...I had a flick onto ebay.com.au but they don't seem to have much on there retro...is that always the case?

Trademe had a 1996 Pace RC200 on there the other day going for $500.00...bargain!

Ebay.com.au never has any retro stuff on it, I always go to Ebay.com..

What's that "Manitou HT" bike about on TradeMe? "The bike was originally a full suspension but has been converted to hardtail."??

That Pace sounds good, $500 eh..

What are you riding at the moment, or are you still looking?

Yeah, funnily enough I was looking at that Manitou for the wife..wonder what it'll go for and if it's got a crack in the frame?!?

I'm currently riding a Pace RC200 from back in the day (1992?), just fitted a set of RC30's to it too which is pretty sweet.

Did you see the other manitou on there?

Yeah I'm not sure I'd trust a "meddled with" Manitou to be honest..

I've got a bundle of retro parts [Ringle, CrossMaxs ver 1.0, 98 SIDs] but no frame to hang them off at the moment.. I'm looking for a 18" Dekerf, Fat, Sycip frame.. 853/True Temper etc.

Strong Aussie dollar is good for US purchases but just nothing out there that's caught my eye.. I was looking at jez-2-many-bikes' Shock-A-Billy on Ebay but missed out on bidding, gutted.. I woulda been driving thru his neck of the woods too as hitting Devon in four weeks' time :cry:

I'm riding Enduro/XC at the moment on [can I mention this??] an Intense rig.. HardcoreXC setup but about as retro as a Video iPod.. :?

Heh heh,

Shame on you! :lol: I took the Pace into work this morning and was overtaken by some roadies...thought I'd see if I could stick with them and soon after began blowing bubbles outta my arse...just not as fit as I used to be I guess! There goes my medal position at this years Worlds (which is in New Zealand this year by chance!) :wink:
