Is there something special about this bike? Why are the bids so high?

"Because the frame and fork are CrMo, it is a surprisingly light bike and of course, rust-proof."

New one on me! :lol:

It's so versatile..
The bike can be used for mountain biking, your entry into cyclocross or a high quality tourer. Alternatively, if you want a DIY project, the bike makes a great steed for a fixed gear conversion to make a great urban run-about...... bring in Reg Prescott (Kenny Everett's DIY character) to seriously downgrade it to a gypo collectable by turning it into one of those fixed wheel things

It does look like a very nice one, much nicer than the rat bag version I have in my garage!
Seriously though it would surely cost that to build it up with decent quality components...
