    12 whole pounds? Everyone knows that the "good" bikes of that era weighed no more than 11.5 pounds...

    Hi ! I live in hollywood and I need a bike (preferably blue, pink or purple) that someone might be planning to sell in a garage sale or even give away. My bike was my main transportation and was recently stolen so I need to get another one ASAP before I start my new job.Please email me DETAILED pictures of the bike and include any problems it may have (hopefully none) and the price you are asking for it. I can afford $25 tops...

    Go have the bunny get you one.

    I just checked into what else that guy has for sale and I found this gem (among knick knacks) :

    http://cgi.ebay.com/RARE-K2-BAYSIDE-...item2c519a4f95

    the narrative is impeccable:

    The "comfort bike" category is a splinter from mountain bikes. It sports a more upright seating position (made possible by changing the frame design and handlebar stem orientation), and shock absorbing features everywhere they can be put.
    The Bayside must win an award for shock absorbing features. The saddle has thick foam padding. And springs on the back. And a shock-absorbing telescoping sprung seat post. And the handgrips also have shock absorbing foam.
    Even the pedals have comfort features. They are made from low-density urethane foam, so it feels like you're riding the bike with crepe soled shoes. But there's also some serious performance-enhancing features, such as the Noleen NS1 comfort tech suspension front fork with 55 mm of travel. Sure, this smooths out the bumps in the road. It also makes the bike more sure-footed and easy to handle on poor surfaces. The fork will make you more safe and secure on rough unpaved surfaces, bumps, and potholes. And the oversize aluminum-tube frame is a very capable performer, with metallurgy, rigidity, and strength on a par with far more expensive racing machines.NOT CANNONDALE/GARY FISHER TREK SPECIALIZED HAS SHIMANO PARTS


    The Shimano Revo Shift twist grip shifters are easy for novices to master, and the bike has mounting eyelets so you can easily add front and rear racks. So a novice rider can find this bike an easy introduction to cycling; then add racks and use it for errands, commuting, or weekend tours.

    Pros: Comfort features from the land of milk and honey; cute styling that recalls a newspaper delivery bike from 50 years ago; no-nonsense high-tech frame is far more serious than all that padding suggests.LOCAL PICK UP ONLY PLEASE!

    $.99 and not a single bid. It doesn't appear to be working.

    i still don't know what's for sale.

    i wonder if the seller would give me the stand the parts are sitting on and just keep the parts for the auction price?

    I joke I joke.

    Actually, this is something I see quite a bit of as someone who has studied graphics and marketing. Sticking some attractive woman in an image is second to slapping some red, white, and blue (and perhaps some stars) on something and making it look patriotic. It's really a shame people can't take their time and come up with a real marketing image.

    2nd time this has been posted on Detroit CL. Gets right to the point, albeit a bit ungrammatically. Perhaps the poster thinks Santa uses CL to give away used bikes.

    I would like a road bike least than 5 years old
