When you are racing your bike is everything-you cant afford to have something go wrong, so typically before every race the bikes are stripped down, re greased, torqued, checked and preped. Hardley seems trashing to me?
If I am looking at a bike that has been raced, I think of the hard yakka the bike has done...compared to a bike which hasn't been raced. Yes they are maintained well but you would expect the life span to be much shorter than a bike with less use and maintenance....

Just my two cents....

Dont know mate-what hard yakka has a race bike done compared to any other bike? Plenty of people ride down the track every weekend but dont race-the only difference with the guys who race is on one of those weekends they attend a race....and keep their bikes in tip top shape. I just dont understand the stigma? I may well be wrong but at the mo I just cant see it?

Sorry-like I said my comments were no reflection on his bike-its obviously immaculately maintained and an absolute bargain!! Just bought up a question I have often wondered.
