    Are bikes not cool anymore?

    Because this guy seems to be getting rid of all his bike stuff, including his U-lock and floor pump.

    Just saw it on eBay, thought it was weird and probably a little overpriced.

    My Jeep is making me happy.

    Also, if you track bikes on the street riding *******s start hiking up the prices of vintage mountain bike stuff, I'm going to kill all of you.

    Who cares what's 'cool' or not? Do what you you enjoy, and if you have some sort of problem with others enjoying it too, stealing your thunder if you will, then you have a serious problem with wanting to be 'cool'.

    I just thought it was funny that the guy seems to be selling all of his (seemingly unused) cycling-related items in one auction.

    I think you guys might be in danger of reading too much into the OP.

    Reading through that auction, I realized how much I hate it when people say 'campagnola' instead of 'campagnolo'. It says it on the god damn part- how hard is it to look at it and spell it right? ****.
    “When the spirits are low, when the day appears dark,
    When work becomes monotonous, when hope hardly seems worth having,
    Just mount a bicycle and go out for a spin down the road,
    Without thought on anything but the ride you are taking.”
    -Arthur Conan Doyle

    That is kind of strange. I sometimes see entry level mountain bikes that come with a lock, helmet, pump, gloves etc but usually it's just Magnas and Huffys.

    The guy obviously knows crap about using ebay. If you want to maximize profit, end the bidding on a Sunday. Encourage early bidding by having low starting bid. Don't look like an idiot by having starting bid so close to BIN. He will be lucky to sell that bike IMO, but hey what do I know.

    Consider this:

    Maybe his whole family and him just got evicted, and he is selling to get money to feed his poor, starving children. Or he just got robbed of everything he owns except his bicycle and the accessories.

    HOW DO YOU FEEL NOW!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!


























    But yea. Prob just a hipster that thought gold, Japanese stuff looks good on everything.
