    But it also makes you less visible to motorists on a ride.

    And the brand is "Mouton Cadet". Kinda says something about the intended market when they name it after jug wine...

    This always gets me. Seller won't even expend the energy to take the bikes down from the rafters. So you know the tires are flat, bikes are dirty, probably been hanging for years. Asking premium prices too. So, does the buyer have to take them down to buy them?

    Yeah the pricing seems very ambitous based on the add. I volunteer at a free bike coop and theres a 50/50 chance that either of these bikes would end up in the strip/scrape pile. I for one wouldn't waste a more than a couple of minutes or dollars on either of these bikes.

    Well not much of a theft seterant but definetly a deterant too potential buyers. Maybe I'm worng but my gut felling is this one just isn't quit right.

    The hung upside down ones are even more sad.

    I have seen several Walmart level discount store FG/SS with this bad of setup fork backwards that have been riden for a year or more. The sad thing is most where sold that way new at the peak of the Fixie craze.

    Pricing's kinda ambitious as well for a department-store fixed/single.

    Looks like a hipster starter bike and that the seller (millennial with poor mechanical aptitude) is trying to get most of the initial investment back.

    Well even from the bad pic I can a fairly nice multibolt goose neck maybe landing gear forks most likely better 24inch based on frame style. But the add is scketchy as hell and the bike is likely hot stolen. I wouldn't go near this one even at the low price.

    I have a friend from work who faithfully rode a Northrock (Costco I think) hybrid to work, I'd see it parked outside every day. One day took a closer look, and the handlebars were installed backwards! (Not to mention that the derailleur cables had come loose, so he was stuck with a single small/small speed). I offered him a free tuneup, I rode the bike home and my arms almost broke off it was so anti-ergonomic with the handlebars bending away. He got the bike back and was blown away how much better it was.

    Eh, seems fine to me. The writing is terrible, but I think the seller understands he's selling a damaged bike for parts.

    Feel free to disagree with me, but.....

    Caad8
    "Size 54cm. Suit rider 170cm to 185cm"

    Ok, it's not that wacky, but I wanted to complain somewhere. 185 is obviously almost 6ft1. A 6ft1 guy on a 54?! Parleeeeeze! And Caads have small head tubes. I'm sure it happens, but still......

    Well...for the price, the parts are worth it...

    Or...you could, like in a previous posting here, put cardboard in place of the missing seat tube...I am sure that would hold a rider up to about 50 lbs! This is pretty amazing...makes you wonder how that section of seat tube got taken out!!!

    Pretty sure that's a Mavic SSC rear derailleur as well....so yeah, for $50 and some simichrome paste that could actually be a pretty good find.

    My guess is it just rusted through. Probably two places on the seat tube where the paint was gone and bare metal quickly rusted through due to flood damage. Hopefully stainless or chrome or whatever protected the rest of the parts...

    Okay, I'll admit. It's a pretty entertaining build. Like if Dr Seuss went BMX.
    Maybe he will get his price if some Who in Whoville thinks it's nice.

    Custom Cruiser adult-sized fun - $450 (vancouver wa)


    I am selling my custom-built Frankenstein cruiser, featuring 41" ape-hangers, a pair of 144-spoke Dayton wheels, purple tires, red vintage grips, red string seat. It is a bit of a silly project, but I'd like to sell it now as I've had my fun with it and would like to make some $$ off of it... and I want someone to enjoy it. Any questions?
    That's enough out of you, legs. Shut up and pedal.
