Never mind the Viscount - just take those cranks off and send them to me.

I wonder what this joker did with the TA inner ring.

One thing I've noticed so often is Ebay and CL sellers (and elsewhere for that matter) who don't know how to measure or express the size of a bicycle in a generally useful way. You get stand-over with flat tires, downtube length, seattube length with contact points not specified, measurements in inches with unknown rounding up/down/sideways, guesses, "It's about right for someone 5'9," "I'm 5'9" and it's great for everyone I know," as well as top tube length and effective top tube length. It's really a crap shoot unless you ask a good question, actually get an answer, and become convinced that the requested measurements were done right.

You have to be prepared to get something that's wrong, if you can't check it out in person.

Gets here just on pure simple ugly, plus the combo of steel rims and back brake only for a special, one of a kind death ride:

I think the lightning bolt is the one Zeus is gonna hit you with if you dare to ride this thing...

Sometimes I just can't take it any more:
"That would translate to perhaps 50 Jeunets, IN TOTAL, still surviving in America in 2009!"

http://cgi.ebay.com/JEUNET-FRANCHE-C...3%3A6|294%3A50

This means I've had something more than 1/10th of the surviving Jeunets in my hands over the years. This guys hyperbole is a bit over the top; try reading the whole thing. I dunno if the price is fair, it seems high to me, but the market is pretty weird, but then again, he refuses to ship...

Yeah. New tire. That's what that bike needs. Then it will be totally fine, not an abomination at all!!

On a tangentially related note, I have recently learned that the Craigslist apartment ads are a haven for scammers. I really have to wonder if anyone ever falls for the "I'm working in East Africa and I really need someone to take good care of my condo while I'm gone, that's why it's so cheap! Just send me a moneygram with the deposit and I'll send you the keys by DHL Courier! Oh, and I will send more pictures of the inside if you want, but it's complicated for you to see it in person because I'm in Africa you see." (No kidding, I had 3 of these in a row and they all specified that particular courier. No idea why).

(I was quite relieved to find a place that I could actually enter, with an actual landlady there, and therefore I signed a 3 month lease very quickly indeed. (There's a workbench for bikes! And a cubby to park my trailer! Whee!).)
