    Do you have any photos of the whole frame? With the chromed ends, forged drops and Nervex lugs it looks like one of the better models.

    I ride safely and courteously. I don't care about the law unless I see a cop watching. I don't care what Mr. Suzuki thinks of me.

    Yeah, I think Citibike is pretty great here in NYC, though I don't use it myself.

    First off, I have almost never seen someone "blow through" a stop sign or light. I often see people slow down, look, yield if needed, and then roll through the light. I know here in NYC pedestrians...

    I know I'm not adding much to this discussion, but as a motorcyclist myself, I think the rider gets most of the blame here. I'm not talking about legal blame, I'm talking from a personal point of...

    I'd like to see photos of this. I've never seen worn out drops.

    Fair enough! I just lump all that under "dumb," and treat them accordingly.

    I'd buy it at $15. You could make it a beater or build it up with whatever's lying around and sell it for $100 or something.

    I have had a couple Paselas die due to sidewall tears, but not explosively. In both cases it started with a scrape which got more worn.

    I'd remove all the lights, bags, etc for the ad. They make the bike look cluttered.

    Also, you're cross chaining, that looks bad in photos too.

    I see the pics. It's a decent bike but you should temper your value expectations, no way it's a $550 bike, and especially not a $270 frame. It's a middle of the lineup or a little lower machine. My...

    I have been hurt several times working on bikes or motorcycles, not seriously, thankfully. Almost all of the injuries could have been prevented by wearing gloves or being a little more patient with...

    I'd go look at it if it was close, see what's salvageable, and make an offer based on that. Based on what I see here, If the guy would take $40 I'd buy it. I'm assuming the frame and fork are toast.

    It's pretty useless, IMO. Value depends a lot on your area.

    It causes a lot of wear to the drivetrain, which shortens the life. Plus it's usually noisy.

    Whether it's a law or not, I don't know, but the cops here (and in many other places) regularly abuse their authority.

    Consumer Reports gave these helmets fairly bad ratings a while back. I don't know if they have changed anything to update them, but the general consensus is that skateboard style helmets are not the...

    Oh, no way. The owner has lowered the value with the repaint, bad decals, mismatched parts, etc. My guess is that it's a 60's Gran Sport, but that's just a guess. We can't even say for sure that it's...
