    Craigslist find - Is this guy serious?

    Sorry if Craigslist threads are frowned upon - I didn't find an active thread with funny finds but i thought this one was worth sharing. He claims that this bike is extremely safe at night yet makes no mention of lights.

    http://appleton.craigslist.org/bik/814270122.html

    This bike is in very nice condition. The paint is in great shape and everything appears as new yet. Both the tires are also in excellent condition. I deceided to build a bike designed to be seen at night for safety reasons and have the rear wheel completely filled with silver reflectors. You can't get one more on, I tried. You can barely tell there are spokes the wheel is so full! The front wheel has two complete circles of reflectors....

    Hey now... He spent 10 hours straight with no brakes adding those reflectors!


    I'm sure the bike looks every bit as classy as the description makes it sound.

    Forget the bike. 14 hours of work for $40! That's cheap labor and he is willing to work 10 hours without a break. He's got McDonalds management written all over him.

    .

    Lol thats funny, theres pictures now, maybe if it was a nicer bike I'd pay, but reflectors are anoyying, I always break them off my wheels, sometimes they break themselfs off cuz they know what happens, I use my home made lights, a car would hit that, at night I wouldn't have a clue wtf it was. lol
