    Yep, after researching the pics, and placement of the shifters and wall brace, both have Capella's. A great find if someone can get a deal on them. It helps me not at all, that they appear to be in my size range.,,,,BD

    Some Huffy Cranbrooks aren't that bad but those orange and black ones are pretty terrible.

    I'd rather look at actual motorcycles for $1k

    The sellers text is wrong.

    Custom build bike for sale. Used it and no longer need it. Will get 150 miles to the tank and everything is brand new. Askin 1,000 so let me know if interested. 979-218-7678

    It should say "Used it, got my license back, no longer need it to get to work".

    All it took was seeing the one that cuda had the steerer tube snap in two while adjusting the headset.. NEVER will buy one. A Murray from the eighties yes, but NEVER a Cranbrook from the nineties and beyond..,,,,BD

    There's a Honda Helix in Meridian, Idaho on CL for $700 that I wish I had, it gets over 65 mpg and does highway speeds, if you aren't aware of them look them up.

    I love the way people refer to such drewing as track. Sounds better than wrong size bars poorly welded to stem.

    The weld to the stem looks good. Penetration seems about right. Ugly, but welding neatly onto cast isn't easy.

    The weld to the bars on the other hand...

    Yeah, definitely unsafe and I hope the new owner has a good dentist.

    How about this one on the Toronto CL----a Campagnolo Shamal/Vento front wheel but it is actually just a Vento. I guess he put the word "Shamal" in the title to get people excited or something.

    CAMPAGNOLO SHAMAL / VENTO - front wheel - $195 (Toronto)

    http://toronto.en.craigslist.ca/tor/bik/3593041659.html



    This guy has a Shamal front wheel for $200 but the logos are gone. Hrrmmmmmmmmmmmm

    I teach HS English in a community with a large Af-Amer. population, and respect that kind of writing. I don't teach it, obviously, but there's value in it.

    You can hear it as you read it in a way that you can't possibly hear what I'm writing... and I don't mean reading it in an insulting caricature, but I can totally hear the young man who wrote it as I read it.

    Thank you.

    One cannot teach "proper" English to speakers whose native language is deep dialect without understanding and respecting that dialect as legitimate.

    Now, as for your assumption that the Craigslist poster is male ...

    Not entirely true. One's writing style offers many clues to the background of the writer (yours included).

    I agree. While as pointed out below I am not perfect either, aside from the fact the poster actually tried to write something what is to respect? I could understand the slang and or dialect but you actually allow students to hand in work with misspelled words? That makes you part of the problem.
