It does, actually. Needs a new lockout knob, but it works just fine. Sitting under a table in the "workshop". Lol.

This angers me. This bike new in 2007 was $500. This jerk gives no info, looks bone stock, and he wants $450. No thanks. I found better brand new bikes for $500-600. All 10 speed, lighter, and with better components.

This is sad when people are deluded into placing monetary values so high on articles that have name brand recognition but do not understand the market place.This behavior is repeated over and over again until what was simply a bicycle becomes a treasure in the persons mind.I hate to say it but a news piece was recently run here in Switzerland about Detroit Bikes a company selling fixies for 4 to 6000 dollars.They are hoping for the same delusional notoriety with brand recognition and the story of how to get America working again,but in reality ripping people off is a how to keep people away from from businesses.

Not really craigslist deal but that's were in throwing it on without doing a thing to it. Looks new. Nieghbor down the street has it on curb. Image

Awesome! Take it, ride out until it dies. Look cool the whole time.

On another note:

I kinda think this is an okay deal, but I can't get an exact year on it. If I knew the size (and actually liked the seat stays), this would be a great frame swap for the denali pro.
