I believe this is a ruse, but funny none the less.

The chain is not the only part of that bike that needs to be oiled frequently.

Whoa! If I found that in my yard I'd invoke finder's keepers! (Also I'd wonder, "where did this yard come from? I thought I lived in a condominium!")

Check out the spec sheet: Holy smokes, did anyone else realize that you're supposed to replace your BB every year? And of course, we all are aware of the HUGE difference that a one-tooth larger cassette cog makes for climbing, right?

just seeing if there is any interest, make an offer!?!!

Holy Jeebus! One more frame and the seat would be behind the axle, and it would be a unicycle!

Anyway- I see a Trek in there and a '80's Schwinn. Very much a waste of a couple of good frames.

I know thats been listed for at least two years, could be longer. He actually reduced the price to $450 briefly. Thought for sure someone would buy it then.;)

This is only wacky 'cause no one has bought it yet. I know I saw this listed last summer, could have even been spring. Why this doesn't get picked up i HAVE NO IDEA.
