    Look! I found a used Kevlar Tire on a beat up rim! Looks like the tire is cracking near the rim

    I saw that too.
    Hey, why throw it out if someone else can give you $10 for it before finding out it is trash and throw it out for you?

    Okay, I'll play.

    For at least the last year there has been a bike for sale on the Detroit/An Arbor CL, Ruthie Matthes' spare bike.

    Well, today this was posted:

    http://detroit.craigslist.org/bik/1137206938.html

    Ruthie Matthes:
    2000 Olympian-MTB
    1991 Mountain Bike World Champion
    1989 Road World Championship Silver Medalist
    5 Time MTB World Championship Medalist
    2 Time US National Road Champion
    2 Time US National MTB Champion

    Pearl Izumi shorts - Slightly soiled.

    This was the spare shorts so they have less then 5 hours riding on them.
    Ruthie had it made as her spare shorts for the 2001 Mountain Bike World
    Championships. She ended up racing on her performance bike shorts.
    Looks like the left leg has a little more time on it as part of the Pearl Izumi
    logo is worn off. Other then the soiled insides the shorts look NEW!

    A true collectors item!

    I got a chuckle out of that, too. There have been other response posts on CL about that bike too.
    My favorite was "Who the hell is Ruthie Matthes?"

    But you see...the seller isn't selling bikes. He is selling shorts...soiled shorts. He just listed the things that Ruthie did.

    Duh!

    There has been an ad for 18 mos, at least, try to sell one of her spare bikes. I'll try to find it.

    This was a parody.

    Guess you had to see the last 100 ads or so.

    I love this. I've been watching that damn Matthes ad for so long, I feel like I actually know who she is. Maybe next year he'll have it down to $1400... and, um-boy will I ever be tempted. I mean, Ruthie sat right there on that seat...at least when she wasn't racing.

    Have you noticed that it says for both the bike and the soiled shorts that they have had 5 or less hours of use?

    That rear rack will come in handy during the races!

    Wow that thing was made for bike. That's almost too cool. I am tempted to buy one so I can annoy my wife (and everyone around us). Great idea to entertain my 2 yrs old.

    This deserves more than a plain URL. This is awesome.

    "*^* Radio for bicycle (handlebar mount) - $15 (Union Square)"



    If you're reading this, it's still available. I'm usually pretty good at taking stuff down that's sold.

    Want some music as you're riding your bike? Ipod too dangerous? Taxis intimidate you? If so, maybe it's time to HTFU! (ask someone if you don't understand).

    Well, if you don't want to HTFU, maybe this handlebar radio/horn is for you. The best part is.......the whole world can listen to what you're listening to. Well, not the whole world, just people around you. It also depends how fast you're moving. If you're riding 7mph on the west side bike path, the joggers & rollerbladers behind you (who are waiting for an opportunity to pass) will enjoy your tunes.

    Dial in your station of choice (Z100, Kiss FM, Hot 97, Fresh 102.7, Power 105.1, Lite FM, News Radio 88, 1010WINS, etc.) and enjoy! See that lady up there with her dog? Hit that horn button to alert her you (and the 7 other people behind you are approaching in an aerodynamically tight 8mph echelon paceline). When you hit the horn (works the same way as a horn in the car), the radio function will automatically mute Amy Grant's "Baby Baby".

    The guys in my triathlon team don't really enjoy listening to Amy Grant or Paula Abdul. I personally enjoy it very much. But I received a few "broom in the spokes" type threat if I don't take this thing off my bike. So.....it has to go!

    Besides, I think it's time I take my training to the next level. With this radio, my bike weighs in at 14.2lbs. With it off (and when I take a rather large dump in the morning before my ride), I can get the bike to 13.659382lbs. As I take my riding to the next level, maybe you can enjoy this radio as much as I have over the past 48 (or was it 49) years.

    Cheers!!!

    What a pityful display of Socal bike sales...
    This is why I'm getting depressed living here looking for deals.
    All these guys do around here is comb through all the goodwill stores converting bikes into fixies or listing one turd for the price of three.

    So that "sandman" grew 4 inches in 2 months and the bike doesn't fit? Wow.

    I know! And to make our image look even worse:

    I went to the Salvation Army thrift store today to check out their bikes. I find an okay chromo framed road bike that was kinda beat up. THEY WANTED $180 FOR IT. That is one hell of a profit I would say. They get bikes donated at no cost to them, then tape a piece of paper to the seat and frame with a price of $180!
