You never know, would probably be a foolish impulse at my age, but I do love a new bike OR an old bike.Having thoughts on another new bike??
Think I saw pictures of an older version that was red which is what drew me in. I vote blue so the blue version would be fine. Quite a difference in price of the two.The WTP is on my short list
I like the double top bar design of the two aforementioned bikes. I’m cheap so the Retrospec looks better dollar wise. They are listed for less than half of their previous list price.
That Framed 26er just looks like what I'd expect a BMX cruiser to look like. And the 23.5" top tube is a bonus.
I suppose there is a nostalgia factor at work here. The listing is also a make an offer option. For someone in northern Indiana it might be an interesting purchase. I remember seeing these reviewed when they were new, thinking they were about double the listed price.Yeah it's a nice one, but I would think it is overpriced... But who's to say how much value rarity adds to a bike. For my money, it'd have to be drenched in XTR. How much is a similar era Stumpjumper? Half that? A third?
Seems like they were around $1400 or so new, but I could be wrong, thats 25 years ago.They used to go for far more.
