Well, I have a different view. Although I understand the collector value of original packages, I think bikes are meant to be ridden, unlike stamps or coins or antique porcelain. So why would I pay extra for a bike in the box, only to destroy the value by taking it out of the box and riding it? Some times the economics of collectibles simply contradict common sense.

I'm reminded of what my then four-year-old son said to after I had completed of of my rants: "Dad you're being logical again, you KNOW that doesn't work for us."
