Don't fret about that cracked stem, it doesn't affect anything. Until it dumps you face first into a root.,,,,BD

It's English...sure. But it's okay, it's been owned by a former bike mechanic.

Owned by a former bike mechanic- meaning he no longer works on bikes (or keeps them out of the rain in winter).

Bikedued 04-24-14 05:09 AM

I would hardly be able to enjoy it, knowing I paid twice what it's worth?

Creepy old guy sells bike on eBay, surrounded by children:

Sure, it COULD just all be innocent fun, but the masked face, the Velcro tennis shoes with black socks, the garage-turned-playroom, it all smacks of a "free candy" van, or worse...

High end, those words don't mean what you think they do.

High performance and ready to ride 53cm IVERSON 10-speed ROAD BIKE for a very reasonable price. Rides and handes nicely with problems mechanically. Great for leisure or everyday use to achieving your fitness goals. Equipped with quality components including tires, seat, quick release wheels, suntour crankset, champion handlebar , derailleurs and more. Why spend hundreds more at a specialty bike shop when you can buy a quality built bike at much lower price. Comparable to trek , giant , specialized , raleigh , khs , sr , shogun , fuji , peugeot , miyata , schwinn , univega , bianchi , centurion , cannondale , jamis , cannondale , freewheel , raleigh , single speed , azuki , nishiki , sturdee , fixie and more.

At least he admits it has "problems mechanically", like a seriously bent fork. Not that he mentions the fork.

Gorgeous. Maybe worth $6K, I don't really know. But if it's a "Randonneur", why are there no braze-ons for a rear rack? Also, who's Mitch? ("Check out Mitch's web site and do the math.")

OldsCOOL 04-29-14 10:23 AM

That saddle is at an annoying angle for a bike that is supposed to be endurance oriented.

^ Awesome bikes.

But any seller who says "do the math" is a *****. If I had that kind of scratch to dump on a bike, I'd be talking to Mitch, not you.

And when I see these bikes on CL, I wonder what's up, or what went wrong. Mitch has been building for five years at best, so the purchase of this bike is pretty recent. And I'm not going to do the math, but I guess the seller spent more than $6,000 on bike+parts, too. Not exactly pocket change, and due to the nature of custom bikes, not an "impulse buy" either.

How much bud is your track bike worth?

Whaaaats up y'all?

I just moved back to the area after living in Northern Cali (Humboldt county) for a minute. I had to leave my bike behind and brought back things indigenous to the flora and fauna of the region. I'm looking for a new fixed or track bike, steel, around 54cm. Hit me up if you know what's good!

This ... just floors me. He appears to have some other ads that are pretty good, but am I seeing things with this fork?
