Came across an Eastern Ace of Spades & was thinking of grabbing it. Not that I need it but thought it might be cool. Maybe something someone might want one day. Anyone have any thoughts on it?

I don't crash, I do random gravity checks...

Good idea! I got my step son an Element and works perfectly. All original and a guy my age at a local park offered him $800 for it. I only paid $150 for it. But, saw on some sites in real good condition the ‘03 was going for that and more

Yeah, it's firmly in the "mid-school" era but I thought it would be cool to check out the geometry compared to today.

Speaking of geo... anyone know of a good site that typically lists past bike geo's etc..? been trying to find specs but I'm not having much luck other than TT length.

So, I took a look at it... Paint is pretty chipped up. New(er) bars & chain. Cranks were loose, chain wasn't tight & tires are near flat so I couldn't even ride it. Offered him $100. He wasn't sure so I told him to give me a call if he changed his mind. I think hens have gone for $120 but I'm not sure it was worth it.
