    Hilarious Craislist Ad

    Just saw this on Craigslist.

    A Windsor "The Hour" bike for $900. You can buy it brand new for $300. I like to call it anti-depreciation. I bet his trucker hat and skinny jeans are cutting off blood supply to the brain.

    hmmm 900-300= 600.

    All he needs to do is rip off some one on a windsor the hour once a month, and he can pay his rent.

    Everyone offer him $50-75, just because he deserves all the spam he can get.

    He says "lots of extras" What if he has a HED 3 on the rear and a Aerospoke in the front?

    You never know, but I'll be offering him $50 (:

    why do people do this even though buyers are smarter than this? i've been looking around for a kilo tt and ive seen some "just barely ridden" on CL and they price it $400 stock bc they had to "put it together." ****ing stupid.

    I get tired of that guy too.
    I'm not one for fawning over bicycles, but I do believe that our bikes communicate with us, and what this bike is saying is, "You're an idiot." BikeSnobNYC

    By "anti-depreciation," do you by any chance mean appreciation?

    That's what I was thinking. We're not in 2004 anymore.

    I like how he wants everyone to leave him a "detailed message" yet he couldn't offer the least bit of detail on all the "extras" that warrant the $900 price tag. Oh and the $820 drop to his lowest counter offer. I love logic!!

    That's my guess. He just sent me another email saying that he'll take $75 and "just needs the money."

    The morally correct course of action:
    1. Meet the thief.
    2. Inform him that we practice a two-eyes-for-an-eye style of justice 'round these parts.
    3. Break both of his hands and remove at least one kneecap.
    4. Get the bike.
    5. Let's assume it's a BD bike, so:
    5.1. Get the serial number.
    5.2. Contact BD and see if they can track down the original buyer.
    5.3. Contact original buyer and return the bike.

    I'm actually just a college student who was bored when I sent that email. If anyone lives in Norman (I don't even know where that is), $75 is all it takes to get this bike.

    BD doesn't keep the serial no. on file IIRC.
