My favorite though is the Specialized mountain shorts and chamois a few ads down. Does anyone actually buy used cycling lowers? You couldn't pay me enough to put on some other guys cycling shorts, not even if they were washed in lye, peroxide, and rubbing alcohol.,,,,BD

Heres yet another anoying add of someone selling a frame and fork only for close to the to the value of the whole bike considering Denver's horrible sellers market. With really nice pics of the whole bike, I hate when sellers show pics of a whole bike when there only selling the frame.

Looks like the frame may be bent slightly bowed out also note the iffy seat tube and the lugs in front and boteom frame tube don't look right. If you can see more than one possible bend from just small pics on a bike of this level it is basically scrape.

I know this makes mutiple Wacky posts but this one is just a hoot if yoy read it. This guy mentions no actually price but states he would like to trade this POS for a nice Surly frame. I hope he gets about a 100 calls inguires asking is the bike $10.
[h=2])))))>--ROADBIKE--<((((( - $10 (Colorado)[/h]

Sorry, It's not really $10. This is a beautiful, great condition Brittany Free Spirit. These were built by Murray for Sears. This bike belonged to an older gentleman who bought it new around 1979. He rode it once, and hung it in his garage for ~35 years. I purchased it this fall, fixed it up over winter and now its up for sale. I puchased new gumwall tires $30 (about 100miles on them now), new bar$50, new tubes $10, NOS Star brake levers $10. and a new saddle among other things. Pedals not included. (9/16) I can throw in really nice French made Belleri drop bars for 10 extra. It comes with rack, fenders and mounting hardware. It needs a new rear brake cable and a front tube(for 10$, bike shop can do it). It is almost ready to ride, just throw on your pedals and ride. It would make an awesome ss/ fixed gear conversion. I can put the bars on upside down for you. It turns them into super comfy moustache bars. You get both the Velo and the original springer saddle. This would be great for cruising downtown or going down the bike path. The paint is a beautiful mettallic blue.

text(preferred) or call 97O- foourr88 - ninetynine thirtytwo first 100 TAKES IT .trades welcome. Especially a decent surly frame or some such thing

Official Bike of the 1976 Olympics.. FIXED GEAR! - $150 (Menasha / Steven's Point)



Up for sale today is the Official bike of the 1976 Olympic Games. 56cm in size, older geometry so perfect for anyone 5'9- 6'0. Has been converted to fixie, with a flip flop hub so you can switch to single speed. Brand new tubes, tires, and gold chain. Also hard to notice in picture but an awesome chrome front fork.

I travel all over the Fox Valley and to Steven's Point several times a month. So please don't hesitate to ask for delivery for little to no fee.

Feel free to call/text 920- six five eight - 3O55 (Text greatly preferred). Also if replying by email put "Olympic Fixie" in subject line to weed out spam.

It would burn up a lot of my precious time trying to wring $50 out of that overweight piece of junk. Of course, should there be an apocalypse, its value would soar and I'd have to eat my words.... but only if the internet still worked
