All this and a comedian to boot? We should all chip in and buy it, wonder if he'll throw in more of his "wit" with it?

I didnt know there were streets named "nev" and "er"? (I got the joke)

Is that really a 20" BMX with a gigantic foamy seat on it? That looks painful to ride.

I've noticed multiple posters on my local Kijiji advertise that they're selling bikes for money and/or various illicit substances; apparently this transaction is more common than I thought.

I've posted stuff about this guy's auctions before... His prices are CRAZY!! What really kills me is that he calls it Budget Bicycle Center!! He should just change his user profile to bbbcbikes for Busted Budget Bicycle Center. I have no idea how he sells anything at all. Seriously...

No he's a GENIUS! HE can now buy up all the "cheap crap" he called out in his ad and make a huge profit.

Should I break it to him that Trek didn't even start building bikes until 1976? It also looks like a Suntour DiaCompe model as well. I could be wrong and often am.,,,,BD
