    That is one of the best efforts to sell an otherwise low sex appeal item. Very creative soul.
    God grant me the serenity to accept the hills and winds I cannot change;
    courage to challenge the cagers I can; and wisdom to know the difference.

    Only $25? The guy is truly desparate.

    $25 for a Veloce BB doesn't seem that low. If I were selling a Shimano UN-72 I'd probably ask $20 or something, and that's an equally good BB.

    Just don't go riding your Raleigh 26 tpi bottom bracket around Dupont Circle unless you know what you're doing! That's just asking for trouble
