Well maybe if the baloon/middleweight scene cools a little wecan avoid some of the absurd prices present in the musclebike catagory. Some of the balooners are already only
a rich man~s toy!

Hey, I just found you.... so it~s fresh to me!!
I think that I have yet to master/find all this site has to offer,but I try.
Q: Is Ebay the best place to list?

Things are slow due to it being winter. The economy too probably.
The site is not fading away and is one of the best resources available on the net. Thats not just the case. You are fustrated like myself at the lack of posts it is the season, stay with us.
I saw the shift from balloon tire bikes to musclebikes such as the Schwinn sting ray type bikes at the last two swap meets so yes, there is truth that the balloon tire scene has passed the torch but it~s still got plenty of power.

Maybe the balloon tire section of this site is slow right now, but the rest of it isn~t slow at all, even in the dead of winter. They have over 1000 pictures in their picture database.
This is my first stop every morning along with my first cup of coffee!
On the topic of balloon tires in general, I~ve seen a lag in their popularity over the past year or two. Part of the reason, I believe, is the fact that the people who rode them as kids are now getting a lot older and are less likely to be involved in a hobby like this. And they probably are not out riding either.
What do you guys think? Even though I feel the ballooners are the coolest and most extravagant of all bicycles, I think their original owners are between 55 and 75 years old now and are not active in cycling or collecting.

Sorry your post got no replys but mine always have. This
is a great site for the exchange of information. They have
a good picture data base that is getting larger all the time. I~ve got no complaints!

Its awful hard to move bikes in the winter, or stir up any interest. in fact the largest and most enjoyable part of this hobby isnt setting home pinstriping a fender, its hunting the next bike. Or swapping parts, or whole bikes for that matter. I basically shut the whole thing down till spring, and save my energy for other things. wait a few weeks the crows will come out to roost.
