    oh, yeah! I think they were somewhere in the "tiagra/105" range for mtn bikes.

    I think my kona had an rsx rear derailliuer (sp?) and the front was xt . does shimano still use the same "names" for mtn bike components that they used in the 1990's?

    There are 3 of us, we all like steel, we're all the same size, OH NO, MUST HAVE IT!!!!

    Let's just buy it, and share custody...

    (I even like the color, and it has the same components as my old Trek, which I sold and never should have. Peachy keen!)

    Still no bids. I don't do eBay. Do most people wait until the last minute to place bids? Do sellers ever lower their minimum bid?

    i recently sold some stuff on e-bay for the first time (usually a buyer). The stuff I sold did not get bids until the last hour or two, then there was a frenzy the last few minutes.

    Knot, sometimes when something does not sell, the seller drops the bid.
    Also, if something is on reserve for say, 200 dollars, if you bid 150 they might contact you later to see if you'd like to buy.

    for six tanks of gas you could have bought a bike.

    Usually it is a last minute frenzy, but I noticed it now has a bid!

    I won't be bidding on it. It may be a great bike, but it's not the only Aurora out there, and one of the things I love about the current bike is its copper color. I wouldn't base a decision to buy solely on that, but considering I have yet to determine for sure what size I need and I do have that trip to Hawaii to pay for -- I think it's just not the time or bike for me!

    Hey, bike color is important! Hopefully Jamis won't change it next year. (It was copper last year, too. Very pretty.)

    I'm just amazed at how much difficulty you're having finding an Aurora to try out. Come to Seattle, we've got at least two bike shops near me that carry it! (TiCycles and Free Range Cycles)

    Have you ridden a Surly Long Haul Trucker? Trek and I saw one at my LBS and thought of you. (this is the same shop with the Salsa Casaroll. They really like steel bikes)

    Yeah, I thought that, too! It was startling to see "my" bike!
