    So this beast came in a collection of vintage bikes I bought. I haven't been able to find out much. Can't be that old given the components. Anyone know any history, approx value or any other comments?

    Well, now I feel stupid. I actually did a web search for this thing a few months ago, not recently, and I swear there was nothing out there. Doh.

    I think he must have just revamped his website. It says 2016 all over it.

    Apparently the price on one of these is $1800. What do you think I should I ask for my used one?

    So I contacted Hammersmith. He recognized the bike- apparently it was the first prototype bike he sold. Cool.
