    This guy somewhat reminds me of the Viscount sellers who actually represent the "death fork" as a feature. Acckk!

    Capitalism at it's finest. If I want to price my rusty, old paperclip at $1,500, I'm allowed to. It doesn't mean that anyone will pay it.

    Tired of coming in second all the time? Wanna go fast? Like real fast? Then this is the bike for you. I am only selling because my wife is tired of me being so ****ing awesome all the time and making her look bad. My trophy room is so big I had to kick my kids out of the house just to extend it.

    Custom built crabon fibre tri-spoke front wheel for ultimate speed. Custom bar wrap constructed from the finest of kangaroo hides. Custom powdercoated purple glitter frame (so everybody can see you pulling away from the pack). Hand built rear wheel for lateral stiffness yet vertical compliance. Right now it is set up for sprinting but could easily be converted to a climbing machine.

    Don't pass up this opportunity to be one of the fastest, baddest mutha's out there. Price is OBO, but don't try and low-ball because I know how much this thing is worth.







    my favorite part is how the crank arm is too long to actually pedal the bike

    What exactly is "tls"? A bonus in the ad are the outlandish value claims. And, you have to shudder at the staggering lack of basic math skills (or the ability to use a calculator) to arrive at 3 x5 =18.

    TLS is probably TLC (tender loving care).. at $75 the guy isn't asking an outrageous amount though looking at the condition i wouldn't want to pay more than $50

    I know we have at least one BF member who disguises his nice bike as a Huffy for theft deterrence, but here's a Huffy disguised as a nice bike. The seller isn't trying to pass it off as a real Fuji, though. Quite curious.

    It's shiny! It's Italian! It has Campagnolo! It must be worth oodles of dollars! 521, to be exact! I can't spell "components" or be bothered to do any research! Everyone knows the Italians don't make boat anchors because their entire Navy was sunk during the Punic Wars!

    Bike is in new condition original bartape masi saddle 56 cm garlatti


    Has the ever amazing Campy Valentino, I do believe. 70s gaspipe.

    Best ad I've seen in a while



    I bought that used bike at the beginning of the summer. As I don't have a car, he brought me everywhere I wanted to go, everyday, even on rainy days, never complaining. He was always there when I needed him and let's say that life without him was really boring.

    If you want a bike that will bring you from point A to point B, this is for you. As he was for me, he can definitively become your best friend. Unfortunately, as a for friend, you must also give him a little bit of love. It means that the breaks could be changed and the chain would need to be cleaned and oiled. I did three flats on the front wheel, so changing the tube could also be a good idea. Otherwise, he is absolutely perfect. Don't look away to another kijiji bike that looks like perfect, I'm really honest, other people would'nt tell you about the mechanicals you'll have to do.

    Not for a small person.
    N.B. I'm learning english, so please excuse me for the mistakes!

    Great timing, this Viscount just came up for sale, with the "Death Fork" proudly announced! Check it out:

    Viscount Road Bike - $200 (south hill)


    Date: 2012-08-31, 8:56AM PDT


    Think it's around a 1976. It's been sitting for years, is dirty, tires are flat, and no pedals. It's all original, down to the suicide fork. Check this link out if you want info on bike. http://www.sheldonbrown.com/lambert.html
    I've found 2 similar era Viscount Bikes on Ebay in good and complete cond. priced at over $800. Been told that with a investment of around $150.-$200. this bike would be worth around $700. $800. I've had intentions of taking it in and having a shop do work but its still in my garage. Asking $200. obo call 993-5693 if interested

    This bike is way awesomer than you.

    Truth be told, this bike is probably so rad that no one in Boulder County should have the right to own such a magnificent beast. If you dig shredding copious amounts of downtown road gnar, this is basically like being in the center of a rap video with Jay-Z on a yacht, except you can't roll a yacht down to Amante and just front on all the beotches. That's where the Colnago Decor comes in.

    It's like teal and pink and ****, it's so 80s it has it's own theme song and here's a freakin' link to it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BizWIhrZ_Tw

    Seriously, the Colnago loves 80s dance electronica.


    If you insist on converting this magical unicorn of a bike into a fixie, and you're not a smokin' hot college girl that's 5' 9" - the price goes up by $100.

    Buy this bike and your sex life will improve by at least 10x.*

    *results may vary

    Respectfully,

    Guardian of Awesome
