    That body builder picture is quite disturbing. I like the cat pic though.

    "nothing that affects anything but the cosmetics"



    Eddy Merckx 10th anniversary plus parts - $1000 (mill valley)

    "up for sale is a 10th anniversary(1980-1990) Eddy Merckx frame made with "columbus tubi speciali superbutted" chrome alloy. the frame isn't in the best condition so it will be cheap. (usually the frame alone sells for around $1000) there is a little surface rust all around the bike but nothing that affects anything but the cosmetics. the frame has been customized and had the mounts for the shifters on the down-tube removed, notice the large blemishes near the head-tube...take everything for $1000 or buy the individual parts:

    the price is right, but....would had been more accurate if "nostalgic" and "bicycle history" were replaced with certain other words...

    This is a loud and one of the more deluxe bikes from the 80's. 12 Speed. Good condition and ready to ride. If you read up on this, you'll see this is one of the more nostalgic bikes from the era and a pure piece of bicycle history. Garage kept.

    "Only 100 made" is a pretty spectacular claim to make. Especially when you don't mention it again in the ad, but instead say you don't know much about bikes... Hm...

    I didn't know carbon fiber could be welded or there is a 40 speed drivetrain. I wonder how well that rear suspenion works with the seat post touching the shock?

    I just don't even know how they got 40 speeds. None of the math for any stupid illogical equation I think of equals that.
    Guh...
    And why is it that people think stuff given away in sweepstakes are always valuable?

    The swan song of a chronic jerk overposter - in the words of a spectator - on the Miami Craigslist:

    The Bike King's Lament (Plantation)
    Date: 2010-06-19, 5:00PM EDT
    Reply to: see below

    There once was a lad named Scott
    Who did brag quite a lot
    About his private bike collection
    That offered a huge selection
    “200 bikes or more”
    The braggart he did roar
    Through his many CL overposts
    Best prices and guarantees he boasts
    One day he proclaimed himself Bike King
    And in his mind it was a wonderful thing
    But the flaggers took note
    Of the overposts he wrote
    And did flag his ad
    Which made Scott mad
    So rant and rave did he
    Whining and shouting “let me be”
    But now code enforcement is on the case
    And soon will be in his face
    Code Enforcement asks “do you get the gist”?
    You must now cease and desist!
    “A commercial business you may not
    Have in a residential lot”
    So they took away his king’s crown
    Which was a bummer and a letdown
    “All of these bikes you must haul away
    Very soon, like today”
    Heavy is the head that wears the crown
    When everyone is putting you down
    Forced to abdicate the thrown
    When the future is unknown
    Stay tuned for great bike deals
    Complete, frames and wheels
    Going out of business prices are cool
    Especially when bought from a tool
    Hear ye, hear ye, come one, come all
    Prices are slashed, have a ball
    The moral of the “Bike King” saga will live on in lore:
    “Overpost on CL and you will list there no more!”

    Read This! Ride Group TONITE! (Atlantic)

    Are you bored?

    Trying to put together a midnight ride group. Meet at Atlantic & 10th TONITE June 20, 2010 at midnite
    Free!
    No special bicycle
    This is not critical mass
    MUST HAVE

    White TShirt
    Reflective Vest if possible
    Lights on bicycle

    text or call 9547899849 for details and RSVP

    See you there! No freaks, weirdos. This is just to ride around Pompano Beach. We will go from Atlantic to A1A to Sample to Dixie to 10th back to Atlantic.

    FUN!

    PostingID: 1801924800
    No freaks or weirdos are permitted, so I'm out already. The people who are permitted to attend must be bored (make that REALLY bored,) willing to wear the uniform, and trusting enough to show up on the edge of a dodgy neighborhood at midnight to meet a complete stranger(s).

    What could possibly go wrong?
