They say that no matter what it is you want to collect you're already too late but I think I've found and exception to the rule in the early DH race bikes of the late 90's / early aughts. Look at this deal I stumbled upon last night http://www.ebay.com/itm/Kona-Stab-D...8267&clkid=6530441452901875490&_qi=RTM1562570 A good friend of mine had this same bike and it was the snizzel dizzel back in the day. Pretty sure the retail was like $4000! These bikes have all the same qualities that old school BMX bikes have. DH racing was a hot new trend in bikes and there was a lot of innovation and experimentation going on, many of these were hand made in the good old USA. These were bikes that guys lusted after and that kind of lust resurfaces as we Gen-xer's approach middle age. I'm going on the record as saying that April 28th 2014 is the bottom of market for these bikes. 10 years from now the prices will be out of reach for all but the wealthiest collectors.
