    I always find these stories a little sad...

    Last summer I purchased this 2008 Specialized Hardrock Sport with the intention of starting to ride. I spent close to $450. Well, I rode it once and ran over something and popped the front tire. Long story short is it hasn't been ridden since. So it is in perfect condition except needs the front tire repaired/replaced (not sure which considering I don't know anything about bikes). Back tire is flat right now as well (assuming from sitting in storage since last summer).

    That is sad. I met a similar seller last fall. I bought his more-or-less unridden 2006 Hardrock Sport for $50. It needs a new chain and clean-up of some surface rust on the hardware. Hopefully I'll get to that pretty soon or I may have to list it for sale with a similar sad story.

    Since this is the 'wacky' thread, I thought of posting a well-designed CL listing for a change. What's more wacky than a good CL posting? I didn't think this deserved its own thread but wanted to share it anyway.

    I love the photography and image editing on this one. A beauty to look at.

    I don't think his bike is really worth as much as he's asking for it, but this is a nicely set up listing:

    I'm scratching my head at that bottom bracket picture. Not because of the bottom bracket, but because of the alignment of the rear wheel and appearance of the chainstays. Something isn't straight.

    Hmm, didn't catch that. You guys are right, however.

    I was distracted by all the bling.

    Local to me and free pick-up, but as I requested more detailed photos (to no avail) and better description, I eventually pulled this information: "used with paint chips. One dent from the fr brake". Guess I would have been the numbskull had I bid on a bike not knowing it had a top tube dent. Seems something a seller should note, IMHO.

    I'm pretty sure the stays are not square with the rest of the frame (which would explain why the wheel sits crooked in the vertical drops too). Some cold setting should solve the problem.

    Could the rear wheel be dished too much?

    That basket might actually work okay on the right bike. It was obviously special-made for something- if it was for a bicycle, then getting it mounted level with a puppy in it and cute girl behind it might actually be an okay combination.

    What wouldn't look good with a puppy and a cute girl?

    Maybe we should suggest that to the seller of the basket.

    Get a load of this beaut:

    http://miami.craigslist.org/pbc/bik/1169388484.html

    This is a very special bike. When I bought this bike, I spent almost $2000 on it. I didn't want to race, I only wanted an exotic bike that would go fast. This one does, but is a great lightweight touring bike too. The bike is a Suntour lightweight but very strong steel frame (most people don't know the famed Suntour racing company that is known for high tech racing parts for bicycles actually built some very special bike frames too), with Shimano racing gears, and Mod Grand Prix handlebars (Italy), with shoe lock peddles an through the frame cables. (I have the chain off the sproket which explains the lack of tension on the drive chain.) The third photograph shows the Suntour hallmark on the rear fork of the frame. The standover height is 31 inches and it ha a custom lime green color.. While the technology of racing bikes has changed a little, since I purchased this bike, if you are looking for a bike that has some of the best qualities of exotic racing machines is easy to ride, fast and beautiful, in great condition, (stored inside), you should look at this one. I have it priced at a bargain $275 or best offer, as this great bike should be ridden and appreciated. Email me at ALKoffice@yahoo.com or call me directly to come see it at 305-893-**** and ask for Alan.







    At least he has proved - without a doubt - to 95% of his potential clients that he is ready to pull a snow job on them.

    I was going to argue that what we're seeing could just be a matter of perspective. If the camera was lined up between the right chainstay and the chainwheel then the left chainstay would look to be very close to the wheel, especially with the camera this close to the frame. But that doesn't seem to be the case here.
    The chainstay could probably be cold-set, but his asking price becomes a bit more atrocious if you've got to tweak the frame.

    News flash: Metric parts will thwart thieves.

    Nishiki Fixie - $500
    Nishiki 57cm

    This was a project bike and runs fast and smooth. All parts are metric (the reason I did this, is to prevent punks from stealing parts off your bike, because they won't have proper sized tools), Vuelta Deep-V wheel set (high gloss white; Deepest V made before having to convert to carbon fiber), Sugino crank arms, custom black bars, Oary grips, custom front brake system, Mercier seat, etc. Easily can be made a fixed gear...has flip-flop hub.

    $500 OBO
