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)

let me get this straight.

if you borrow a bike without permission, and it is stolen, you are responsible (obviously as per video)...
BUT if you borrow a bike WITH permission, are you still legally responsible or NOT responsible if permission is given and you lock it up?

Technically, you probably are responsible. But I suppose it depends on the agreement/relationship you had with the owner.

He says its "custom" made by a high end "custom" frame builder. I don't think it looks like a $3500 bike.

Still, if I had a "custom" built bike, I wouldn't loan it out for this exact reason.

Its like loaning out your custom built NJS frame with full dura-ace. You just don't do it.

regardless of quality most new hand lugged/brazed frames are big bucks. Mind you I'm not saying the frame he has isn't good (I know nothing about it) just that not all of these brazed frames are worth the money the builders charge for them. couple that with the fact that none of the De Bernardi frames that I can find are more than $1K never mind $1900....I'm call BS on this one

The only thing that he may have been sold is a frame with "racing history" or "pedigree". I've seen some dumb people fall for this. You tack another $XXXX on a part/bike saying it belonged to X or was raced at X.

I can only say that this press is relatively neutral for Bushwick bikes.

He said it's a custom built bike... hinting that the frame was custom, but then he says he already had the frame. Those parts add up to 3.5k? Riiiight.
