Times Are Tough: Green Michelin Mud Tires’ Value Falls with Stock Market

Guess the final price of this used pair of Green Michelin Mud cyclocross tires on eBay

Down just like the stock market: old green Michelin Mud cyclocross tires

Last week we featured a guessing game for the final value of an eBay auction for a pair of lightly used original green Michelin Mud cyclocross tires. When credit was still flowing freely last year and the Dow was at 12,458 in May 2008, a single NOS tire commanded $115.  And although this pair up for auction was used and featured the more fragile skinwalls, the average guess was still $75.52, with a high guess of $90.

Well, times are indeed tight with record unemployment and the Dow at under 7,500, the tires went for just $51. “Monstercross Clyde” won with his lowball and nearly accurate bet of $49.62.

It’s certainly a buyer’s market for cyclocrossers on eBay, especially for those who are looking to take advantage of off-season deals and have the funds now.
