I feel really sorry for this guy, but if he love his bike so much why did he left his bike on the front porch? U District in Seattle is known for bike theft.

http://seattle.craigslist.org/see/bik/1430675057.html

Hi,

You stole my Lemond Fixie the evening of the 20th of October off the front of my porch. I'd like it back. I'll pay you whatever you would make pawning it off normally and then some NO QUESTIONS ASKED. Please I just really love my bike and have put a lot of work into it. I am sure we can work out something anonymous so all parties are happy.

It is a 2008 Lemond Fillmore fixed gear. Its dark blue/grey with upgraded petals and black soma toe clips. I upgraded the handle bars to track drops, took off one of the breaks and added one of those sweet cane creek levers.

it looks a lot like the picture below just with track drops.

That saddle could be fixed with some leather conditioner, and a lacing/tensioning. The bike is probably still overpriced, though. There's just not much info to say otherwise.

We've had a few sellers posting damage/unsafe bikes recently in Toronto, and a couple posters who responded publicly letting others know not to buy, which led to some arguing. You know, the usual Craigslist stuff.

Anyways, someone posted this in response:

If only I could find a way to receive a nickel for every mention of bikes with "petals" and "breaks"...

Check this gem on ebay:

http://cgi.ebay.com/Schwin-10-spd-Le...item1c0d51f545

Schwin 10 spd. Le Tour Bicycle


This Schwinn Le Tour is five years old and in excellent condition. It is a 10 speed with 26 inch tires. It has Compagnolo shifters and Shimano derailluers. It orange with silver/steel alloy forks. It was $2500.00 new, and it selling for my rockbottom price of $500.00. Get ready for the holidays now, and be ready to take off those pounds after the holidays. It is a professional grade bike, and it is like those used in the Tour de France bicycle race every year. Superb bike for everyday riding or racing. Good luck as it will go fast. I already have a professional racer interested in it for the Tour de France, but I wanted to sell it on ebay first.

Umm ... if the serial number is 'LTxxxxx', that doesn't mean Limited Edition. It means that the frame was built in November of 1982.

Better just "fixer up" ...

If this was on craigslist I would assume it's a joke. With ebay the comedy isn't free, which makes this confusing.

I'm tempted to pipe in just to say "Lying doesn't endear buyers to you" because the claim that professional racers want to buy a Le Tour is pure fantasy.

But I won't bother.

About that ebay Le Tour

I think that the seller:

a. has no idea what he has on his hands (probably an 80s Le Tour)
b. googled "Le Tour" to figure out what it was (and got some hits on the current Le Tour)
c. put it all together, albeit a tad mixed up...
d. had an (ahem) light bulb moment and went tangentially from "Le Tour" to the "Tour de France" and made up a little story.

still at a buck with free shipping, if that thing in not rotten it will make a nice fixie, if one would not mind lugging 40 lbs of steel
