Clyde Sized Ebay Finds. Post CL/Ebay finds suitable for Clydes and Athenas

Just found this on my local CL and thought I'd put it up here since there are some 'tallish' people around these parts...

Really pretty bike...!

Add this to the Clyde Index, Air!

Now for the rules: Don't post your own stuff, only Ebay or Craigs List finds you've run across. Big tall guy bikes, etc

Post the link and City/State.

Ive been looking on Ebay and you can get Falconi MTB shorts 2 pr. for 62.00 (including shipping). They have a coolmax/lycra interior short and a baggy exterior short. The company I got them from was Luv2Pedal on Ebay, and I think they are in KC. I got 4x and I wear a 46 pants. I also came across Brooks B17 saddles from some sellers, new, for a Buy It Now price of 69.95 and like 12.00 in shipping. There also was some New Old Stocks going for 60ish.
