Sold my old bike, YES!!!

I put my old (2002) Gary Fisher Tarpon up for sale on craigslist. This guy emailed me and wanted to come by and check out. He shows up, falls in love with it and pays me. Two good things came out of it. 1) I got what I asked for and then some. When he left to go get money, he ran out of gas so it took him a bit longer to come back. So instead of the $175 I was asking, he gave me $180, he said don't worry about the change. 2) We are going riding on Sunday. I told him a couple of buddies were riding the Greenbelt and he should tag along, since he's a beginner he could learn the trails. So not only did I get more than I asked for, I got a new riding buddy! Life's good I have day light savings time to thank for all this good fortune!

Rock on man. Just hope nothing breaks on the used bike and he doesn't accuse you when it does...people are weird like that.

Nah, I don't think it will. Atleast, I hope not. It was a pretty good shape, I only rode it maybe 10times and it was never anything intense like I do now.
