Tired of your new iPhone 3G. Can't stand that Macbook Air you got for birthday? How about that crappy Sony laptop? Well, you can trade any one of those for a 2007 Dahon Mu SL... LOL

Hey... I'm all for capitalism. If you can get $400 for it, more power to you. I do not think it's unethical at all. I just thought it was funny.

Cool... I really wasn't intending to do anything wrong; I'm just kinda strapped for cash and really want an '09 Mini peace

The first one you asked about is a complete unknown. The other two look to be typical low end folders.

Would you like a free Bike Friday? No problem... just get the job as their SysAdmin / Programmer! One of the benefits is a free Bike Friday.

Ok ok... forget the whole "try to make a profit" thing I am going to just give in and try to sell the bike for what I paid for it ($300) plus shipping (from zip code 84720); I really just want to sell it so that I can order the '09 Mini before I leave for my tour. Thanks, guys!

You may get more bites on ebay. When I do my typical craigslist search, your entry doesn't come up at all.

hmmm... do you know how I could change that? Or does it have to be coming from a major city to be in those searches? :-/ Maybe I should advertise it as coming from Vegas (170 miles away, but the closest big city) Thanks!

Hi oboeterry,
I may be interested in buying your 8HN at that price. What would shipping to 10019 be?
thanx,
Barry

I don't know what could be done. It's weird. I can get other stuff in St. George, but nothing in the bikes section comes up at all. It's like google completely skips that portion of craigslist during searches. I tried searching via live.com and the index page for the st. george bike section came up with your listing, but not the individual listing.

Very odd...

Seller also notes that the bike is in working order, but could use a tune up.
