Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

idk most likely not stolen because both frames are the same size. when most ppl steal bikes they don't go out looking for a bike that fits them well then turns around and sells them...

My guess is it's one of those "I'm out of town, but my personal shipping company will send it to you if you send me your money" scams. Also, who the hell puts stuff on CL for 99/499 dollars?

Just for fun, I emailed him telling him I would PayPal him money up front if he shipped it to me. No replies, so I imagine he wants to deal locally.

Also, since that ad he's put up a bunch more that have raised the price. The Argon is at $600 and the FTP is at $200 now I believe.

Yeah it turns out that he's just some spoiled kid that has no idea about the bikes that his parents paid for. On the fixedvancouver forums, some guy bought the Electron from him and said the kid seemed to be pretty wishy-washy on the price and couldn't tell him anything about the bike
