Pity it's that far away. I'd happily pay the $139.00 asking for that one.

I like the UE 8 a lot. It is a very sensible bike with fenders, a good rack, and a lighting system. I had no problem paying $100 for this one. I think that's high for a UO 8 but not terrible for the UE 8 given the fenders and rack. I plan on modding it with alloy wheels and a cotterless crank. I had one of these a while ago that got ripped off. I find that these make first rate commuters or townie bikes. The PO installed the flat bars and I may keep them (after installing the proper stem):
