GORGEOUS Raleigh, but $2500 is a little wacky IMHO? The seller must be grinning ear to ear!,,,,BD

Plus he's a registered rebuilder of bikes, what eer that means. Sadly, it does not appear that he applied his skills to this bike.

Yes, but they include the carpenter's square, so it's all good.

And now for something completely different, $32 for a slightly rusty Rema patch kit. The glue is probably pre-hardened, adding to the buyer's inclination to display it rather than use it...

Not only is this a terrible bike conversion, but this guy is a total dickhead. I made a reasonable offer (I honestly wanted the wheelset and the frame as a spare) and he was an arsehole about it. He acted like he had $700 in this thing.

Right behind this guy is the dude relisting the "fixie" Bianchi MTB conversion every. single. hour. for $400. You couldn't build a worse bike if you tried. He locktited a cog onto the hub, and thinks its just the bee's knees.

This person is completely ignorant, even for suggesting that these hubs be used. They're not worth $1.00, much less $100.,,,,BD

For 17K the cheapskate could at least put a pair of $50 Yellow jersey tubulars on the bike, that front brake is pretty slick.

Why do sellers always claim, "they don't make them like this any more"? I reckon they mean that older construction is better; however that just is not so in many cases.

This guy must have been trying to win a "most majestic bum bars" competition. Also, "world's crustiest sidewalls." It even mentions DUIs in the ad. Am I falling for a parody?

Refreshing and amusing change of pace from the usual kijiji / CL listing:


http://www.kijiji.ca/v-road-bike/cal...rame/571177583

This is a super wicked almost the original (by maybe a year) Brodie Romax. This thing was cool before you ever even heard of cyclocross. If you dont know who Richard Sachs is, or have a "tri-bike" you cannot have this bike. This bike was born before hipsters and tattoos. This bike has forgotten more IPA than you've even heard of. I will give you the original rubber for this too (it comes with the old ritchey cross tires and some sweet michelins). . About a sixteen inch (maybe smaller) frame. Lady ridden (a 5'6" lady) - meaning that it hasnt been crashed head first into curbs like some gorb. If you own a "fixie" you cant buy this (unless you happen to race track - proof required).

Plus Hutch didn't make hubs. I'm always amazed at the prices people on CL ask for junk BMX parts.

I'm going to take a stab at this and suggest that either the seller missed hitting the decimal point or CL unhelpfully removed it during submission. Also, clicking the Contact link gives you the guy's phone number.

If I saw this on the MS 150, I would throw tacks in front of them. Do they even allow motorized bicycles? I would definitely NOT want to climb a hill on this death trap when the motor runs out of gas.,,,,BD

I like the back brake, too. Very aero in that position. They don't make 'em like that anymore!
