    experienced at what exactly? in addition to the reversed fork those are some interesting angles on the saddle and bars.
    Punctuation is important. It's the difference between "I helped my uncle, Jack, off a horse" and "I helped my uncle Jack off a horse"

    I did write them and mention that their fork was backwards and they wrote me back to say thanks and pulled the ad. In the end, if they'd shipped it, it probably wouldn't have mattered as they'd have turned the bars anyway, but thought they should know.

    Very funny indeed! I can't help but think that the technician was more experienced at stuff other than working on bikes. Maybe he assembled it on a Monday or he had a hangover from a binge the night prior...

    Somebody was experienced at grossly exaggerating the technical abilities of their employees on their ebay ads.

    Funny thing is that their ebay store is called "second glance." You'd think a second glance would have helped in that situation.

    Not a bicycle, but I saw this title to an ad in the local tool section today"

    Dile capliper - $50 (Belton)


    Since the seller didn't have a problem with his spelling in the text of the ad, perhaps he did it on purpose to attract attention...

    These ads has been around for about a month. Earlier ads stated it was $4,500 new + $2,000 invested asking $700. Now it's $2,500 new + $2,000 invested but now $350. Somehow the math still doesn't add up. The early ads had pictures of what looked like an unrideable half done fixie conversion. Several unkind "you're on crack" CL responses followed.

    This guy keeps posting this CL ad 2-3 times a day, and it keeps getting flagged, and he seems to be getting pissed. Here:

    http://richmond.craigslist.org/bik/2837303766.html

    In the event it is flagged again (likely) here's the text:

    SOMEONE KEEPS FLAGGING THIS POST....... Stop Flagging This Post...It Does Not Violate Any Craigslist Terms.

    I have One 1994 - 16th Annual - Great Peanut Tour Embroidered Patch for sale.

    It will be listed on eBay for the next 7 days.

    Dimensions: 4 1/2"W x 2 3/4"H

    Condition: New, One crease in patch fabric from manufacturing error.

    The starting bid will be $3.99 with No Reserve & Free Shipping.

    Please go to eBay and enter the item Number in the search box to see the auction.

    Item# 120854984583

    I'm an eBay top Rated Seller.

    Payment through eBay & Paypal only!
    Someone helps him out:

    http://richmond.craigslist.org/bik/2837729703.html

    The reason your ad keeps getting flagged is it does in fact violate Craiglist terms. Please read:

    http://www.craigslist.org/about/help/faq

    To wit:

    "Can I put a link in my for sale posting pointing to an auction site like ebay?

    No. Please post a set price, do not solicit bidding, and do not link to auctions elsewhere."

    I'd imagine your ad will be removed every time you put it up. As will this one, rightly so. I'd contact you via email, but some CL sellers have a history of going ballistic and I've no time for the trouble. Once you read this, go ahead and flag this posting. I'm not flagging your ad, BTW. But whoever is doing is it in the right.
    Let's see if it continues...

    drewed the frame, but says the new fork with fender/rack bosses is much better.
    Punctuation is important. It's the difference between "I helped my uncle, Jack, off a horse" and "I helped my uncle Jack off a horse"

    A sad Raleigh Cruiser looking for sweet hipster love - $20 (Downtown)

    Date: 2012-02-07, 9:10PM PST

    I'm moving next month and I really want to unload this tragic marriage of metal and rubber before doing so.

    If I can't find a buyer, its fate will be decided in a bath of fire down on Dallas Rd beach (which would be terrible for the environment, so you should buy it if only to prevent this).

    Currently, due to a slightly warped front wheel frame, it rides the way wannabe gangsters from Langford drive their cars. You can probably remedy this simply by bashing it with a hammer, or something equally as hard like that gluten-free, yeast-free, taste-free, stale organic bread you bought last week but didn't eat because you started a "cleanse".

    It also has two flat tires; for this reason, I rode it only once (see below).

    I'm pretty sure it's a three-speed but it's cold outside so I'm not going back out to double-check. Whatever, I'm only asking $20, and I bought it for $200 because I'm a chump. I mean, I knew I was getting ripped off but the chick selling it was cute and I was tired and lazy from walking all the way to her sh*tty apartment to look at it, and I didn't want to walk home. Yeah that's how it really went down.

    Ok, so I should explain the unusual paint scheme: I was originally storing it in my painting studio and it fell victim to careless over-spray on one side only. So if you're cruising down into Cook St village to read "On the Road" for the fifth time, all the other hipsters at Moka House will just think the haphazard white/red/purple spraypaint is "ironic" and they might even tweet a photo just to illustrate the coolness of their neighborhood. But the straight-laced consumerists across the street at Starbucks will only see the original green paint job, so you'll win either way.

    I'm not sure how big the bike is, so let's just call it something generic like "men's medium" (or "women's you're-too-tall-to-date-me" ).

    NICE FEATURES:
    -Seat

    MEDIOCRE FEATURES:
    -Handlebars
    -Brakes
    -Fenders
    -Chain

    SAD FEATURES:
    -Tires
    -Front wheel frame
    -Its owner

    Please relieve me of this bicycle. Its only purpose has been to hangout in my backyard, where it just leans against a wall and mocks me, like everyone at Lucky bar on any given Friday night.

    Attached you will find a normal picture, and the requisite Hipstamatic version (obviously).
