New R-84 pictures

I like the new carbon frame pictures, which are the best I've seen posted of the Lightning R-84. These pics could cause a serious and permanent reduction of weight in my pocketbook.

I found the pictures on eBay. Someone in Green Bay Wisconsin - probably a bike shop - is auctioning off a new Lightning R84 with the light parts group and a smaller Zzipper fairing. The opening price is $4500, and nobody has bid on it.

Yet.

Incompetition in Green Bay sells running, xcountry skis, and bikes at

You're not going to bid on it are you?

Even at the significant discount, $4500 is too much money for me to afford. So no, I won't bid. The R84 has rear suspension. That is nice. But Chicago flatlanders like me do not need the super light weight. That would benefit the real hill climbers.

Wally Kiehler in Michigan has one, and likes it.

It is a very beautiful bike though, at least to a Lightning fan.

Safe riding,

The bike sold for $5,200, not a bad deal.
