    CL ad of the day

    http://newyork.craigslist.org/que/bik/1334254110.html

    Deep Velocity (DeepV) fix gear 54 - $200 (Flushing)

    a classic road frame converted to fix gear DEEP V
    because of its STEEL built, it can take a heavy beating in the streets of NY without dents
    it is a classic STEEL frame that weighs 6-7 pounds (whole bike)
    the frame is a Columbia - Dream Machine

    my experience
    when raping the streets, you'll catch dozens of eyes murdering this bike left and right
    it is if your driving a classic vintage Cadillac down the streets of NY

    here is a link for more photos and MEASUREMENTS

    you can email me at jsun514@gmail.com for concerns or questions etc.
    if both ends are satisfied, we can meet up at a local police station for the trust and safety on both ends

    thank you.

    Is there such a thing as craigslist-trolls? I mean, this can't possibly be a serious ad, right?

    I think he meant the "whole (ashtabula) crank" not the whole bike.

    Back in the spring I finished putting I-don't-know-how-many miles on a Columbia Dream Machine. It was a far better bike than I ever would have supposed. I knew that Columbia had a long history and, presumably, a good name. But this looked like a 1970s or 80s department store bike. Maybe that's just what it was, but it was a very strong specimen.

    I was going to give it a paint job over the summer. But when I inspected it I found two irregular holes at the bottom of each chainstay, just about even with the front of the tire. I knew they had to be rust holes and that the only thing this fine bike needed now was a decent funeral.

    It was a shame. A good bike.
