No relation to the sale, just think it's attractive.

That's delightful. Anybody have any idea what the port on the top tube is?

I posted something dumb. Then I edited it and deleted it.

That is a very cool bike, however, the rear brake routing looks nuts. If it was mounted on the chainstay, why wouldn't the routing be on the chainstays too>?

If I had tons of cash, I would love this.

Gonna have to go in two boxes (porteur rack) and the seller may be paying labor and materials for the pack job.

That is one of two ports to accept the ends of the u-lock.

That bike is my size, and I wanted it when it was at Oregon Manifest and for sale, but didn't feel like paying the then-asking price of $6,900. Since then I have gone through a Co-Motion Norwester, a Palermo (wish I had kept that), and a Renovo (still have that!) that have similar functionality to an extent. But now I'm back to wanting this...

It is quoting $240.87 shipping to me, so probably just using the ebay shipping calculator. I'd guess that you could negotiate the actual shipping cost as part of a "Best Offer" for the bike.

So you can't negotiate the shipping on a Buy it Now, you just take it out of the offer. In some respects better for the seller so you don't pay EBay sellers fees on shipping

It's been many years since that policy change.

Exactly what I was implying.

Oh man... this bike was a not-insignificant part behind the inspiration of the disc porteur I had built... I absolutely adore this bike. Wow.
