There is a bike on ebay for sale and it says it has been converted to a Mamba. What exactly is it?

ok. I figured it out. It's a kit you can buy. Anyone know how much the full blown kit cost. The website said there are only 300 kits that were available.

The issue with that bike is he took a one of three hundred bike (the AGO) and added a one of three hundred kit to it.

Very strange. Beautiful, but strange.

If he had all the AGO parts, you could place a value on the bike, say $15,000, throw in a few more $$ for the mamba kit and call it a day.

Technically the Mamba was available in three stages, the hottest one even had carbon Dymags (3-spoke)
