Lolz, that is funny, even for a CL ad. Bike looks way too big for the guy too in the pic where he's displaying his medal.

Huffy is highly thought of in these parts. And the quality is probably better than most. Sad.

I don't want to make fun of the description too much as the seller probably isn't a native English speaker. It almost reads like it was sent through a speech-to-text or translation tool and posted as is. I love that it just ends mid sentence. I really admire the photos that make it look like the bike was photographed in a murder room.

I may be having a minor breakdown staring at that... thing. It's impossible to decide what to mock/roll my eyes at/complain about first.

Once you dump the infinitely long stem extender, and replace the seat with something more apropos, I think you might be left with a rather nice Bianchi city bike.

More like a "What's up, Man" bike. Thank god for the creation of cables instead of chain locks. How many bikes have suffered from those rattling the paint off?

Every bike needs at least one Campagnolo part, even if it's just a decal, right?

Campagnolo did make a full line-up of parts, with many of the cheaper ones rarely seen in the USA. But, that is just odd as I see nothing indicating a single campy part on the bike other than the TT decal.

I could use that on my Bike Friday. Or, perhaps another project bike.

Perhaps I should contact the seller.
