Meanwhile, he finally went down to $500 on the Italvega. I only have to wait another year for him to hit $400, and I will begin to seriously consider this one. He started in 2011 at $900, and has been trying to sell it since then. At least once a week, it pops up with no takers. Maybe I should go look, take $400, and offer $350 to start?

And go back once a year and make the offer :roflmao2:

Selling the ex-wifes bike.

I'm selling my ex wife's bicycle,she rode this bike almost everyday for most of the day.She's in a facility now and they won't allow her to have it,her doctors all say that her obsession with bicycling drove her to mental illness.Maybe your wife can enjoy this bicycle the way mine once did......There is a mile counter thingy on it and it reads 788,a bit high for a bicycle that's not even a year old..
I believe this is a ruse, but funny none the less.

That's hilarious, imagine some crazy lady riding that thing all day everyday! Not very impressive mileage though for a bike ridden almost everyday for most of the day!

Weird, the Columbia looks like a ripoff of both mid eighties Raleighs AND Peugeots??,,,,BD

^Way out of line for this sort of Peugeot. I bought one just like it with a broken front derailleur a couple of years ago for $15!

This comment wins!

I love this bike though, reminds me of SB's DIY tandems, where he frankenwelded two bikes in the other direction.

That's not a pad, it's a platform, so you can get up to speed, climb up and stand, and then jump over the electrified/razor-wire security fence. How do you get back out? Well you need two of these bikes, first thing you do is throw one over the fence...

Good price if you can avoid the crossfire.

bikelovers 03-19-14 04:18 PM

I am less than 20min from the place, but no intention to get the bike , you can't do that to a fellow cyclist :) :) :) :)

If $550 is such a ridiculous price, she should be selling for $550, just for the symmetry and justice of it (plus that's $250 more she can spend on a Fendi handbag).

Or maybe she should just swap with the guy above who is selling his ex-wife's bike.
