At least the price right, whatever it might be. I have a feeling they searched "blue mountain bike" to get a picture for their ad, and that it's most likely a Wally World Schwinn.,,,,BD

It's astounding that the medical condition wasn't stitches, and dental work.

Listing for $700, but will take $500 on the very first email. He claims its worth $1500 as it sits, but he just needs the cash right now. He uses the words bro and ight a lot, in emails, and probably in daily speech as well.,,,,BD

I just cleaned my keyboard, and lost one of my favorite keys, the quotation mark... I wanted to use them for bro, and ight, which is an even more shortened version of alright/aight, I think?

Maybe he/she thinks a potential buyer will believe that he/she hand hammered the VO fenders and/or hand made the bamboo fenders.

In any case, it's absurdly overpriced. (And if they actually paid $1200 for it, they got so incredibly screwed......)

[h=2] Lamborghini Tonino Leggenda Bicycle - $275 (Land O Lakes)[/h]

Have you ever dreamed of owning a Lamborghini, but never found it financially possible? Now you can own a Lamborghini and be the envy of all your family, neighbors and friends for a small fraction of the price of the "Lambo" car. Yes, it's true! and very surprising too, that the very well known Italian luxury sports car manufacturer, Lamborghini, periodically manufactures and sells luxury, high-performance Lamborghini's bicycles.

The two-wheeler, which wears the Lamborghini legendary badge is designed and built by the company owned by Ferrucio Lamborghini's son, Tonino. This is the Lamborghini Tonino Legendda 21-speed hybrid that's meant for roads and trails, and is finished in the popular and very famous Lamborghini sunrise yellow paint (car pictured). It has all the flair and luxury of appearance you'd expect from a Lamborgini. The frame is lightweight hand weld constructed from 7005 aluminum. The fork is 700C CS-8217 steel. The drive train is Shimano TX30D rear derailleur and Shimano TZ31 21 speed shifters matched to a silver alloy crank. The wheels are custom designed high V profile alloy silver and the brakes are Shimano Altus cable activated front and rear. It has an extremely comfortable custom Lamborghini saddle .

Stop dreaming and become a "Lambo" owner, here is your chance! You don't need a lot of cash to realize this dream. So what if its only a "Lambo" bicycle, still it wears a Lamborghini badge!

This lightly used, well maintained, rare, exotic bicycle is yours at just $275. Quite a bit less than a 4-wheeled Lambo? Yeah?

If interested please send me an email that includes your phone number and I'll call you back asap.

note that in the listing the seller says "As soon as I fill in some important details, I will LOWER the price."
Assuming they drop 3 zeros, it'll be alot more realistically priced.

Damn that is a sad looking bike. Burningman? He should be calling the Junkman.

Drive crank on the wrong side (or something bizarre with the picture)?

[h=2]Bianchi Pista (fixed gear) - $335 (W. Asheville)[/h]

This mean, city machine is great for speedily getting around town! I am the 2nd owner and have made the following additions/adjustments since I purchased it 2 years ago (it was new ~2007): comfy mustache handlebars with red grips, front brake, rear tire, chain, rear cog and the drivetrain was professionally aligned. The first owner spraypainted it black to make it a bit more anonymous. This coat of paint is well scratched, but probably helps to make it a little less desirable for thieving passersby. It has a sturdy steel frame, yet it's very light. It is pictured with no pedals, but I believe I have two different metal pedal sets to be installed for you. I'm not exactly sure of the bike size, but would be best for someone between 5' 8" and 5' 10". Though, I'm 5' 11" and it feels good for me. Contact me and we can set up a time for you to try it yourself.

In that town, it's only good for getting around town if you like pushing your bike up (and likely down) hills as opposed to actually riding said bicycle...
