      $70,000 on fuel alone by my back-of-the-napkin. That is ridiculous. And there's no way a Jeep would have gone 400k miles. Wow. Business cases are rarely so clear cut. :thumbup:

      Mtn bike - you could list it for $600. Worth at least $500. Your biggest problem is the 26" hardtail market is virtually dead, and the Yukon frame, while a good solid frame, is very generic.

      Everything I have come to understand about sports nutrition says this is a bad strategy. You need to eat while you ride. But you can overeat too, especially if you're drinking a sports drink.

      Leave the bars and seatpost stock, buy a used suspension fork instead.

      I rode a Kona Unit for several years in some pretty gnarly terrain. The stock fork is perfectly fine for light use but it...

      Beware...that battery pack is trouble. As I understand it, there was no intelligent management of power between the 4 cells during discharge/recharge. This made the batteries have very short lives...

      You dodged a bullet. That guy had issues and the bike was overpriced - even at $250.
