We have all become greedy bastards haven’t we. It’s a 30 year old mass produced bike that nobody really gives twos $hits about but some how peeps think £550 is a sensible ask.

This is a £100 bike in the real world

Yes we have mate and people will always take advantage if they can i guess.

It's what he wants in return that makes me chuckle.

There's a Rockhopper on the Retrobike UK Fb page for £650 :lol:

Although i don't think it's anything to do with this wonderful forum though.

Well, I like mine. But more than that, is handmade always better than mass produced? More rare, yes, But a better ride, when companies like Specialized had experienced design teams, the funds to invest in more testing and a lot at stake? I wouldn't like to say. Sometimes, yes, and sometimes, no, I would guess.
