    If I'm not mistaken, the same person had another tandem frame for sale at $200 or so. I assume that for whatever reasons, he assumes this frame is worth that much more. The same thing goes on with high-end single bike frames, although I have no idea if this particular frame is worth anything.

    The little evil thorn poking out of the seat is perhaps symbolic of the whole endeavor. I emailed to see if I got "the original parts" with a potential purchase but no response yet.

    Are those actual Campy track hubs?

    Huh?

    http://portland.craigslist.org/clk/bik/1827269061.html

    if you are wearing rolled up skinny jeans, a vneck, a messenger bag with a macbook, horn rimmed glasses, goatee, beanie on the back of you head, then this bike is for you. but then again you can ride it equally well in bootcuts and a flannel.
    and damn! i didnt know how much these things sold for on craigslist!
    annyway
    i have this vintage road bike. no idea what the frame is. nor the wheels. nor the fork.
    i pulled a bunch of parts out of dumpsters in true earth friendly hipster style (people pay more for that these days right?) and hand sanded, hand painted, and hand reassembled all the pieces.....by hand. so no electricity or other such evils used in the process.
    bike rides fine.
    its by no means fit for Mr Armstrong, but then again hes an image of mass media so who would want a bike fit for him anyway right?
    its white, if there arent pics up when you are reading this then txt or email me and ill send u some or ill put some up on CL in a couple hours.
    it actually looks pretty cool in my opinion, but then again it would also look cool covered in super liberal bumper stickers or the ones indie bands give out at their cafe shows. whatever works for you.
    there is only a rear brake on it, originally i was going to go the no-brake fixie route but decided that i liked life too much to be that cool. so it does have a brake. easily removable though, i promise. and it doesnt work that well. so give yourself a extra 20 feet than you normally would to brake. or jam your beat up pumas/vans/other hip-ly worn out shoes into the frame and against the tire to slow yourself. the latter method is probably more effective anyway.
    the front shifter went out on me today. just needs a new cable. or not. you can ride it the way it is. you probably want a 1 speed anyway right? but the back one still works great, so you have 6 or 7 speeds still. im sure it wouldnt be too hard to break that one too to make it a 1 spd tho. hell, ill break it/take it off for you for another 10$. but being a hipster, you probably want to do it yourself.
    and ill also replace the shifter cable for you for free if you bring me some cable, as i am not able to get any right now.
    so in all, this is a good bike, yeah the front wheel wobbles, and it may need new tires in the next year or so but i ride it just about every day and it hasnt given me any big problems. the wheel is just off by a little and i could try to true it for you but that would take a lot of time and i dont have that much time.
    so yeah, let me know if you want it.
    and im not bashing hipsters, yes i think tight jeans are funny, but really, hipster types are the ****. thats what makes portland what it is.
    my phone number is 3606007417 so txt or call me anytime. im a nice guy, i just happen to have a sense of humor. so really, im probably somewhat of a hipster myself (minus the jeans, they hurt) so really, brutha to brutha, come buy my bike. please.

    I notice a few of the links are dropped/edited rather quickly. I pray the authors are being razzed by the general public and not by the upstanding viewers of BF...

    $450 for an English 3-speed.

    Someone tell me if I could get anywhere near that kind of money. I have an old English 3-speed in very good condition. I'm planning on shining it up and selling it. I live near NYC and I'm willing to list it as in NYC and bringing it in for people to see it, if it's possible to get even $250 or more.

    I wish! I've never heard of anyone paying this much for a basic English three-speed--and that's a nice but pretty average-looking Sports. I've seen some super-shiny, mint men's Tourists go for over $500 but nothing else close and that's in Boston where there's a pretty good traffic in these bikes. I'd love to hear differently, but I can't imagine that this dope will get anything more than a couple of hundred, max.

    OK, I'm glad you confirm my suspicion.

    After I shine mine up, I'm going to start out at a wacky price, in hopes that I get it. Then I'll gradually reduce the price to $250 or $200. Then I'll wait.

    Adult "bell" helmet - my jackass husband n teenage son think they god - $35 (Lacey)

    Date: 2010-07-11, 9:01PM PDT
    Reply to: see below

    Rei adult mens large bell helmet. Worn approx 5 times. The male ******* in my family refuse to wear. They simply will be far superior than whatever force there hardassheads will thump against - so I decide today to take the damn helmet n sell it to another mom with good intentions.

    Txt me for pix.
