    And not only is it an Pro Aero....it also appears to have a complete Dura Ace AX group on it as well. Which is also uber rare. I've seen just the brake sets go for over $200 on ebay before.

    So this kind of goes in the whacky world of craigslist ads.

    If you're in toronto we've notice alot of trolling on the sites lately, someone has been beefin' on the bikes sections about the "sh*tbox bikes" that are listed so he ended up making a "sh*tlist of bikes in each day. (this is all his terms in quotations). Now it's turned into a mini war on craigslist and people have been firing back and forth at this guy, it's rather entertaining.

    If you're bored go to http://toronto.en.craigslist.ca/bik/ and type in "sh*t list" without the *, or read the postings over the last few days it's been pretty interesting, i'm sure this happens on your craigslist's here and there but this is kinda funny

    i didn't even know these existed, they don't look like they'd be very aerodynamic but they could be very functional on the extra long commute to work

    the **** lists aren't there but all the postings and hateful messages are,, haha, i guess they flagged the posts where the guy posted about 10 links of stuff that was posted all yesterday and they were just made fun of in the post.

    it's funny cause about 3 of the 10-13 links proabably shouldn't of been in there, i guess this guy is just super mad for some reason, maybe he bought one of the "sh*t list" bikes and was mad that he didn't know any better?!

    He types all this out, with no mention of the make, model, size, or even a clear picture, and flat-out refuses to answer any questions, let you ride it (because obviously test ride = theft attempt), budge on the price, or even pump up the tires. But it has a gel seat!

    http://baltimore.craigslist.org/bik/2472044129.html

    $800 custom-made Street Bike with accessories - $300 (Rosedale)

    *sigh*

    I honestly don't know why I bother posting these ads. It's OBVIOUS that NO ONE ever looks on Craigslist for a bike... unless they want to ask a million questions and never buy anything or else find out how stupid you are by asking for a test ride so they can STEAL it.

    So, fine. Listen - I'm not going to answer a million questions about the bike. Honestly, I don't know what body or shocks or spokes or whatever are on it. I don't really care. All I know is that it was custom made for biking on pavement by a guy that's awesome at making bikes in VA (where I got it). The bike itself is only a year old, and has been in storage for the majority of that time.

    And no, you can't test ride it. You'll have to take my word for it that it really does ride like a dream (especially with the gel seat cushion on it), and actually, I just checked, and the front tire has leaked a bit of air from BEING in storage so long. Really, it would be more of a pain for me to WALK to the nearest gas station to fill it with air than it would be for me to just sell you this OUTSTANDING bike at a HUGE discount. And I'm near 300 lbs and 6'4", so trust me when I say this bike would easily support you.

    I'm including the gel seat cushion, a one-size-fits-most bike helmet, a bike lock, and front and rear lights. Easily everything you'll ever need to ride safely and legally on the street. Don't ask about lowering the price; it's firm. I need every bit of the money, too, as I'm short on the rent this month. Text me at 804-317-6069 when you're ready to come and buy. CASH ONLY, thanks.

    Anyone know what these retailed for? I found a nytimes article mentioning $169-179.

    20" Schwinn Orange County Choppers - $500 (Nashua)

    Rare Limited Edition 20" Blue/Chrome Bike.

    Orange County Choppers and Schwinn have combined to produce one of the coolest bicycles ever brought to market. It has a wide, motorcycle-size rear tire and a riveted saddle seat. The custom-stretched chopper frame includes a wedge-shaped piece of metal where a motorcycle's gas tank would be. The bike even parks like a real motorcycle, thanks to a double-leg kickstand that raises the front wheel when locked down. A closer look reveals amazing detail. The word "Sting-Ray" in white lettering on the tires. Black dice inner-tube caps. Clear-coated flame decals. The Sting-Ray weighs a healthy 45 pounds and feels like it would last forever. This chopper is a great cruiser. Schwinn produced only 3,500 of these first-edition Sting-Rays. These are destined to be sought-after collectables like the old Schwinn Sting-Rays of the 1960s and '70s. Here's a chance to buy one for yourself as an investment while the price is still affordable. Or get one for your kid so he or she can have the coolest ride in the neighborhood.

    Asking $500 or best offer.

    You gotta love this guys description of the bike

    http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI....m=170661759618

    FOR SALE CECIL WALKER 12 Speed bike, aka 'The Jewel of Ballarat'

    This bike was purchased by my father in law in the late 70's or early 80's. He's old he can't remember exactly, and when i asked him when did he purchase the bike he slapped me because he thought I said, "when did you root that dike?" He lives in a home now and sometimes poop's his pants so the bike doesn't get any use, and I need the money to pay for his warm milk and purified dinners.

    It's an exceptional quality build in original condition, apart from the rims which he said he replaced to something thicker for ease of longer rides, but I really think he just wanted to look tougher, back then if you had lamb chop side burns, a Lillie gold chain necklace and fatties on your bike, you were made, especially if you lived in Croydon, which is where he lived back then.

    This is a genuine one owner bike that been gathering dust in the garage for the last 20 odd years until I pulled out few a brief attempt at fitness regime of mine which unfortunately followed in similar success of Pol Pot's regime.

    I had new tyres put on the mags, poofy grips, a speedo to tell me how crap and slow I was and even gave it a wash. I rode it round for a while but then a few easters ago I went for a ride with a good friend. He had lots of colourful tight fitting lycra that accentuated his groin-al region, and riding boots on that sounded like tap dancing shoes when he walked on concrete. I felt like a gimp.....but the funny thing is he looked like the gimp. And I think he kept on looking at my arse when we were riding.....it totally put me off riding with a 'partner' in fact it put me off riding in groups and riding in general. He was super fit and I was super lame. My enthusiasm waned considerable from the day on resulting in me installing a hanging apparatus in the shed and hanging the old girl. Like the Golden Idol in Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Arc.......the bike sat waiting for someone to discover it.....minus the big rolling ball and arrow boobie traps mmmmm boobies.

    If you buy it I promise there will not be any indigenous Hovitos or rival archaeologists plotting for your pending doom and demise, And you don't need to pick up the bike in a seaplane that has trouble starting until you thump it on the dashboard when your under heavy incoming fire. We live on a normal street so you can pick it up in a normal car, but not a Hyundai. There is however a snake pit in the shed and a mass of brooding large spiders that you may have to contend with.

    This bike has brakes, a seat, handle bars and two wheels. Apparently the crank is a special egg design to make the most of your downward pedal action. In it's time it was cutting edge technology so it pulled heaps of chicks. So close your eyes and put yourself on this bike seat and dream of your potential hiram of lycra clad bike loving chicks.

    Should I be concerned about the bulge in the rear tire? I really like that stylish curved fork.

    90 PINARELLO PREVISO
    http://cgi.ebay.com/90-PINARELLO-PRE...#ht_5638wt_902

    I have seen this on ebay for what seems like months now. There is even a photo included in his ad that shows the word Treviso on the top tube. Not the first time this kind of mistake has been pointed out. Makes you wonder how bad the guy really wants to sell it.

    I would like to own it for 1/3 the price.

    I was thinking it was the lab-grade rust that was so valuable. But still, Fisher Scientific will sell me a whole case for $356: http://www.fishersci.com/ecomm/servl...141_29104_-1_0
