Recently the board software has been updated and there are some known bugs/failures:
- Avatars are currently not being displayed ✔ FIXED
- Tapatalk connection is currently broken ✔ FIXED
- Avatars cannot be uploaded ✔ FIXED

Please note that we will soon do some changes in WW board template design in case to get a fully mobile/desktop responsiveness board!

Most people that purchase high end bikes do not care about weight.

Most people that purchase high end bikes would rather be the first owner and have an original warranty.

Most people that purchase high end bikes simply do not need what this bike offers. Why buy a highly tuned version of an old groupset that is fairly obsolete for the price being charged?

Berk Combo? Not worth much unless you have the exact same saddle position, which you probably don't.

Bars and stem are same story. Many people replace all of these items once buying a bike.

Having known people that have tried to sell custom bikes they often have the lowest rate of return. No one is going to pay a premium to buy something customized for another person except in very rare cases.



Yup, part it out. It still won't be a great return, but you're more likely to get rid of (most of it). I saw a berk saddle/post go on ebay, but trying to sell a custom frame w/ a custom saddle/post combo isn't going to work well on a complete bike.

you build the most/biggest/extravagant thing in the world but when it's out in the market nobody can afford/want it.



The problem with Dubai wasn't the product.

It was that it was in freaking Dubai...

I'm guessing the 43 "watchers" of this are just other WW forum folks who want to see if he's able to sell it? A recent poster made a good point, if someone's buying a 5-figure bike, they probably don't want an outdated version of Red on it.

What's the over / under on when this bike finally sells?

Another 6 months? A year? Longer?

he'd probably have more luck breaking down the bike and selling the components
