The user added "55 people watching this auction, and very few bidding!"

I wonder how many watchers from this forum?

lovely bike , but the people who bid early only push price up , so no reason for it .

People also watch because they have the same and are just curious . If i had to bid on everything on my watching list I would be bankrupt by now . 8)

I think the early bidders are trying to reach the reserve price?

Also it seems the seller is moaning about the 55 watchers not bidding!

all the kona kool-aid drinkers here are waiting to snipe. of course, they'll overwhelm the system in the last 15 seconds and none will have gotten a bid in. :D

I'm just stunned he chose to spend all that money on a new XTR chainset and did nothing about those monstrous forks.

Offer him £800 and he's likely to bite - once you've stripped the bike down and sold the parts on, that gets you the frame for £400, which is a damned sight less than they've been selling for recently.

I agree..

Those forks are horrible.


Still - keen to see what it goes for.

Anyone on here preparing a snipe?
