Default wicked fat chance questions

http://bend.craigslist.org/bik/509452716.html

is this a fair price for an 89 wicked fat chance? i know they are not the most expensive of the fat city bikes but i think it would be a fun bike to have a nicer rigid mtb in my stable. thanks in advance.

jump on it. or at the very least have a look at it. rust is a killer so have a look at the seat tube. Pac NW is not a kind place to steel bikes. but that one looks for the most part complete. cranks and a wheelset should be easy to source. the spare fork you can sell to recoup some of the purchase price.

same color and size as mine. the red shines like glitter in the sun. you know you won't have a regular caretridge BB there. it's a bit of a pain to get new stuff but it's perfectly doable.

thanks again guys. colker i did not realize it would be a press in bb (though i didnt really think about it) i was kind of hoping to use my xtr m952 crankset on this bike but i guess there are others out there. i am going to look at the frame tomorrow so i will give it a close look to make sure there is no rust. if i get it ill be sure to post better pics here and ask for some build recs.

you could get a 107mm spindle and have those m900 cranks. am i correct here? can you find a 107 spindle for a Fat?
