Think it deserves a separate thread so it does not get lost in the mix,

A lot of really cool stuff gets posted in the regular eBay/Craigslist/marketplace find thread.

Just like Schwinn (and Schwann, Schinn, Schwing, Swing, etc.), there are also many ways to spell Trek.

It took your post for me to get it. I thought the seller thought they had an all-purpose racing machine - you know, race it on the track, race it on the road. So the ad is, in fact, a head scratcher, just not the kind of head scratcher I thought it was.

I wonder if the ads are sometimes dictated rather than typed. Is that possible for Facebook, Craigslist, etc.?
