Wow! What a bargain! I sure am glad he googled it.

It's still an open case in criminal court there, with a hearing in two weeks. Hopefully any investor will do their due diligence, but the Rasputin effect does seem to beguile an unfortunate few.
He's been in trouble and convicted as a con man before:
My 2 cents: he's bad crazy, if you enlarge the pics, I believe that's a straitjacket he's styling for the mug shot camera. (edit: it's not, they wouldn't have a zipper and snaps in front in all likelihood, thankfully I have no first hand knowledge!)

Smile at Miles with a ROLLFAST!Originally Posted by 10 Wheels
I used to have an entire 4'x8' storage locker packed floor-to-ceiling with stuff all neatly boxed up into neat little 12"x12"x5" flat-rate USPS boxes. I had moved out of a big house with a 3-car garage into a tiny little 800sq/ft condo with my new girlfriend. I had a ton of books, supplies, bike parts, and other junk that I didn't have room for or time to sell for a good price during my move and fixing my house up leading up to the sale.
The boxes are tough as nails, moisture-resistant, fit books well and could handle the weight of them when full, and didn't rib/bulge out when heavily loaded with them. They stack very nicely as they are all the same size and shape.
Best of all they are are absolutely free from USPS and come in a nice flat package if you order them by the bundle on the USPS site. I think I got 3 20-30lbs packages of them delivered for free They even came with a six-pack of free rolls of tape to build them up. Don't be cheap with the tape as you might as well build them sturdy to last. I was doing a lot of selling back at the beginning before paybay really started to suck so I had ordered similar boxes before so USPS didn't even bat an eye when I made a big order of the boxes.
It took me years to slowly go through all that stuff and sell or trade the stuff and work down to a point where it all fit in my new home. Funny thing is I don't remember ever throwing any boxes out -I'm fairly sure nearly every one got re-used to ship out stuff I sold on ebay or traded online. I still have a dozen or so of them in my parent's basement for long-term storage of books and a few things I haven't yet had the heart to get rid or the room to store. I might end up using them to ship stuff out someday if they don't change the boxes so they can't be used.
No I don't have a single pang of guilt that I got extra use out of them before they were utilized for their intended purpose.

I know toronto bike prices fetch way higher amounts then most places, but i will admit this is a little absurd. He's claiming NOS but there's no box and the pictures are sh*t. Kind of a joke if you ask me. There's also another guy somewhere trying to sell suntour parts for 400, they're cyclone and normal suntour parts...
I don't get sellers. Sometimes i wonder if they are just dumb kids trying to sell their bikes but they don't know how the neogiation process works:
I'm asking 200 or 180 thats it? All you do as a seller by mentioning any number besides your high starting offer is immediately start the negotiation at that lower price. He should have never even mentioned the 200.bmx mongoose - $180 (Spokane Wa)

i have a black bmx mongoose that i dont want anymore bc im getting a new one its a really good bike i just put new tires on it . It has no breaks the seat is alittle worn out but its still good. im asking for 200.00 or 180.00 thats it. if u want or want to take a look at to see if u want u can call or txt me my cell number is 509-917-1892 thanks i also have pic i can send to u too i just put a new tube in the tires too it has silver pedles on both sides
All that aside, 200 for a Mongoose BMX with no "breaks" and worn seat? Unless its a classic collector's item, seems WAYYY over priced, its probably nothing more than a generic Wallyworld mongoose.
I see that pretty frequently also, and the variation "I need to get at least $x for it."
My good deed of the week (whom I kidding probably year).
well, I noticed this posting last night on Craigslist.
And then seeing that it's a locally made handmade bike, did a quick Google search on it, and the found the bike listed here:
Then proceded to email both parties.
Last I heard the guy posting the craigslist ad bought it from a guy on the street for $15.00.
Bike and owner if not reunited by now, will be shortly.

This Touring bike is a classic and in one year it will be an antique. It is in great shape. It is made out of titanium so very light. It is an ultimate touring machine for the most demanding on and off road usage. Shanea FX cranks. Shamono rear gears 18 speed. Dark metallic blue color.
I think Billy mighta stole a Kodiak from somebody.
Not a bad price, tho.
Cuts to the chase, now, doesn't he? No superfluous information, such as size and price, and no distracting pictures.
I picture him looking like the old guy in "Up".
No, I am not going to make you an offer, you just tell me what you think is a fair price and we will go from there. I just never responded to the PM. They were just normal tires, nothing rare or special.
So if you want to sell something, put a price down otherwise you will lose interest of some people.
And good lord, does that old man in the ad know how to spell at all?
Yet another thing that annoys the hell out of me. They first stared showing up on shipping labels, and then the technology crossover began. There just seems to be something sinister about those black and white pixelated squares, or maybe it's just me?,,,,BD
Ridden ten times, and they come with PADDED SEATS!?! I'll rush right over, lol.
Here's a good one for those of you looking for a high end bike. http://losangeles.craigslist.org/wst...929535412.html
