The Budget Bicycle Center is dreaming again. As much as I'd like to see a Viscount actually sell for $800...

For $575, you can have a 56cm Bianchi fixie. Neat.

I can have that head tube replaced for $100 locally. Still not worth $425 though.

OLD BICYCLE - $20 (Appleton)

Date: 2011-02-16, 10:50PM CST
Reply to: sale-jy9eh-2218881571@craigslist.org

The only information I have on this bike is that it is on old winston, and it has liscense plates from kaukauna 87 The only thing wrong with it is that when you peddle it doesnt go anywhere.

"This is a good exercise bike as it is heavy."

Classic. Seller is a bit of a tool, with annoying habit of selling damaged bikes and failing to mention the damage, but this one isn't damaged. It's just an excellent exercise bike because it is heavy. Sheesh.

Or maybe they're not constrained by the "rules" the "man" forces you to build bikes with, maaan. I say it's a modern art masterpiece. He's deconstructing our very idea of what a bicycle is.

According to my calculations, pedaling that bike will actually move you backwards in *time*. Might be a good way to go scoop some C/V finds before they were C/V. Only problem is you have to shift the gears to small/small to go forward in time again - hello chain rub!

This has been making the rounds in the DC/Baltimore circles. It's been picked up on Bike Snob, so it's officially "Epic."

At least the lighting is decent. See a lot of pictures taken in dark garages with a row of upside down bikes. The guy will usually be selling the one in the middle

Remember this IS a genuine original early schwinn

Vintage schwinn - $1000 (concord / pleasant hill / martinez)

Date: 2011-02-22, 5:29PM PST
Reply to: sale-gshgm-2229344726@craigslist.org [Errors when replying to ads?]

This is a classic antique schwinn

Condition is 7/10

Custom red/green paint job.

Tires hold air, rides fine.

With a bit of tarnish remover and polish the chrome would POP.

Remember this IS a genuine original early schwinn

I think the Budget Bicycle Center is mainlining some extremely pure delusion:

http://cgi.ebay.com/Vintage-Ross-Sup...item51980103a3

I mean, I like old Rosses, and they're certainly under-rated, but this is a 200$ bike at best.

Who sets their prices? I know we've discussed this before, but they're absolutely out of whack with nearly everything I know. I've vistied their store, and they've always been a bit on the high side, but on-line, they're insane...

This bike is light weight road bike with mustache handlebars so that you can ride upright and still move fast. I'm 5'8.5" and it fits me fine though it would work for someone a bit shorter too. The frame would've been too small for me without the tall handle bars.

This is a really fun bike to ride. The electra bell and front light are included.

Thanks!
I stumbled across this in the general forum

A great tutorial on internet salesmanship.

A couple of my favorite lines: "The seat sorta fell" ; "It's antique or vintage or something like that".

Yes, 4 minutes of your life you'll never get back.
