Hey, the pedals obviously didn't fall off on the test ride, what's the big deal?

I seem to notice a lot of reversed photos on CL. This one is just more of a riddle because there are no decals or brake cable routing to really show it.


Aside from that, it's a Fuji, it's in Minnesota, and it's been totally ruined. Murphy's Law says that this bike used to be pristine, the hipster bought it for like $30, and it's Khatfull's size.

Your correct, it's probably a reversed photo, all of the photos here are, bike was probably worth $150 or so before hipster got it, now it's worth about 15 as scrap metal. Saddest part, hipster didn't even notice the photos are reversed.....

This can't have been reversed, though. Those pedals are facing the right direction.
I do wonder how well it works. With a liberal amount of loctite and a fairly large sack of man parts I can see it working okay.

It's really tough to tell if it the photo is reversed, most of the normal indicators are missing, the mechanical ones on the bike have been drewed off and the decals are missing, probably under the radio-active puke green this thing got rattle canned with. Printed letters are the best indicator and there are none in the photos. If you did put it on backwards, it could be as simple as putting the chain ring on the wrong side of the BB, then putting the wheel on backwards, the Q factor would be wrong, but it might work. Good chance that if you can put the chainring on the wrong side and not immediately notice, that you probably wouldn't know how to deal with getting a bottom bracket adjustable cup off anyway.

It doesn't really matter though, the value of the bike as anything but a hipster poseur prop has been destroyed anyway.

I don't follow. What isn't facing the right direction when you flip the image to get the drive back to the right side?

I can't imagine that all of the images are flipped. I also can't imagine how the bottom end would stay together for any length of time...

Huh... I guess you're right. Maybe I just got disoriented trying to flip the picture in my head.
I guess that solves it then, maybe.
Only real way to know is for someone here to go look at it.

The true beauty of this bike is that it will probably sell for $275.
America is such a great place.

I dont know how he can sell it for this much without at least listing parts. Otherwise I would just assume those are steel rims.

Consider his target market.
I rest my case.
