    someone should buy this (good deal on a specialized langster pro in nyc)

    i have no affilialtion with the shop but i was in bicycle habitat on lafayette st in nyc today and they have one left-over 2004 specialized langster pro (discontinued for 2005), never ridden, for $850. they originally sold for $1300, i gather.

    beautiful white frame with good parts on it (sugino 75 track cranks, dura-ace hubs, etc).

    i didn't get the size, but it looks to be a mid-size frame.

    someone should snap this one up.

    bicyclehabitat.com / 212-431-3315

    there was also a sweet red soma rush built up with some amazing top of the line parts.

    I'm not trying to be an assh0le when I say this, so please don't take this wrongly. - We have a stickied thread for these types of post. It's called "SS/Fixie/track frames and components on Ebay."

    Your point is valid and it would be nice to keep the dealing confined to one area. The problem is the sticky thread is becoming an unwieldy beast. You have some 400+ posts in that thread, some of which are actually posting about offerings others commenting about the offer and other assorted topics.

    As the thread grows it becomes more difficult to find a good entry point to browse it. Maybe if somebody trimmed the thread down to a weeks worth. Or perhaps a sub forum.

    Was the posting of Ebays and offerings really that much of a problem? It's not like we're forced to read em.

    I'd have to disagree with that in that I think anything to do with a singlespeed/fixed gear cycle is appropriate for this forum. The Langster is a fixed gear bike.

    I agree with you guys, but they mods think otherwise. I'm just trying to help keep things organized the way they want them. There was a thread a while back that contained a lengthy discussion on this topic. Search for it and you will see how the mods were pretty strong in their opinions. (In fact, as I recall, the sticky was a compromise. They wanted all posts relating to ebay/craig's list/whatever to go in the general for sale thread.)

    ah, well. a glance at the first few pages of that thread would lead one to believe it was a discussion of a few ebay auctions.

    if the mods want to move it, that's fine. just putting the word out.

    Is this an eBay item, or is eBay now the generic term for all on=line sales?
    From Craig's List: IF its a singlespeed that means----all the other parts are broken cut off and dumped...dont buy singlespeeds, the bikes will make your balls fall off

    But here's the beauty: all that for sale garbage is time sensitive. So just jump in, look around, then skip to the last few days and you can get what's relevant if you're really interested in buying something.

    There is never a reason to browse that Sticky. Auctions end and pics go byebye. The Sticky is to prevent multiple threads regarding bikes for sale whether its the deal, the pic or bike that is the point of interest. It's for folks who want to be updated or who want to post up a thread about a bike on Ebay.
