    selling your attachment

    so, i just threw my first track bike up on ebay tonight. and of course we have attachments so it's sad to see something you've been so intimate with go.

    I can't believe it sold so fast. It was on there for like three hours until someone used the "buy it now" option.

    now here's the cool thing, i look at paypal, see the name and the city of the buyer and immediately realize its this kid i met last summer when he was on a bike tour. We had a friend in common.

    cool huh?

    Ode to the nap
    The evil, evil nap
    It lures
    you succumb
    But only with good intent
    Shortly I will rise
    But you do not.

    You weren't greedy enough if it sold in 3 hours, were you? At least it has a good owner now.

    Once I had a brake lever bought off me in 20 minutes. A single right side Tektro cross lever at that. Not even on ebay. Put an ad on a local cycling page and had a phone call 20 minutes later... Weird. (BTW, I shouldn't have sold that thing... silly me)

    If you don't mind my asking, why are you selling all your bikes? Are you joining the Peace Corps?

    yeah. it's like donating a kidney to save your cancerous sister. sucks that you're losing a kidney, but at least you're not being drugged in a ****ty bar and having your organs harvested by a new jersey chopster doctor, to wake up in a pool of your own blood with the taste of vomit in your mouth and a rapidly spreading infection around those poorly-done sutures in your lower back.
    the hipster myth.

    i practice vagabondery.

    Why didn't you post it on CL?

    I'm sure you could of avoiding the fees & time spent packing it up.

    Chicago's CL stinks but when I sold my Merlin on SFCL it went fast!
