If he had "stretchy pants" and a cape he could demand more for it.

I rode it (~145#). The biggest problem is the skateboard wheel on the front, which doesn't like bumps.

Bianchigirll 02-02-13 03:01 PM

That Impaler looks dangerous, there are cracks in th road bigger that front wheel.

Needs a tire tubestubes? What's a tubestube?

Bikedued 02-03-13 10:44 AM

Wow. Really? Mine must be worth at least $600 then, even with all the rust and missing parts. On that note, I am going to go for a single speed ride, then fishing for a couple of hours,,,,BD

And the CL one has bar end shifters, a rack and bag to boot. You could pick it up and make a 900% profit selling it on ebay.

Anyone need a pile of scrap metal? I love ads like this because you just know that bikes like that awful Huffy road bike in the foreground of the first picture are what this guy considers an "expensive and collectable antique."

^Pretty lame sales pitch...

This may or may not be the place to rant but...

I am ABSOLUTELY TIRED of seeing "Disney Princess" bikes for sale on my local CL.

That is all.

Great starter road bike 58cm - $225 (North Raleigh)

http://images.craigslist.org/3E83Lb3...28f5bf1d42.jpg

Giant (Kronos) road bike in good condition. Durable bike with Aluminum frame. I spoke with the guys at Performance Bicycle and they said the frame will last as long as you own the bike. I've used this bike to train for and compete in 2 sprint triathlons and it has been very good to me. Comes with a computer. I'm selling this because I've decided to take the next step and purchase a more expensive and higher performing bike.

http://images.craigslist.org/3I43la3...b79f1a19fa.jpg


Did you catch it?

Bikedued 02-05-13 08:37 AM

The aluminum frame, or the saddle that's worth as much as the bike? Both of them are kind of funny. It reminds me of sellers at the flea market, saying a bike was aluminum because it was so light. I guess they couldn't wrap their head around steel = light.,,,,BD
