Would you consider selling just the frame? I'm looking for a large Wicked frame.

Gorgeous bike...

You could always buy the bike and part it out on your own as parts. Might make a lot back on your investment, too.

Default Sorry for my ignorance

Sorry, I'm new at this whole selling stuff on the Internet thing, so I figured posting on ebay would be a good idea too, but I think I offended some of the Fat Cogs guys/gals, so I apologize.

As for spec's, nothing too spectacular:

XT 7 speed shifters, hubs, derailers, brakes, cranks. Rims are unknown. Stem is a Ritchey Force. Levers are by Delta. Head set is a King.

So, I think that answers most of the questions. If someone wants it and does not want to go through the eBay thing, I'll just pull it off of the listing....I have not ever sold anything on there before and quite frankly won't do much selling in the future.

Gonna take this bike out today and ride with a bunch of full suspension guys, I think they feel I should be committed, but I guarantee I'll be the first one to the top.

Mike

Mike,

No offense here, always glad to see a beautiful Fat ...

especially one that fits me!

The Cogs do appreciate the opportunity to keep one in the fold before it is let loose to the masses on the bay.

Drop me a line at groovycycleworks@hotmail.com and let me know what price you're looking for.

cheers,

rody

Default eBay pictures posted

Hi All.

I wanted to be fair to everyone by cleaning the bike up and posting brand new photos, which I feel are impressive. So please check out the eBay posting and let me know what you think.

Cheers,
Mike

Default '88 Wicked Sold $500

All, figured you might be watching my bike on eBay, but if not, it went for $500, buyer pays shipping.

I'll miss it, I've owned it for 13 years.

I enjoy your forum, I'll continue to check back.

I'm off to disc brake land (safer way to go), not quite sure if I'll go full suspension though.

Take Care,
Mike
