Well hell. Reduce, reuse, recycle.

I guess BDSM and bicycles overlap more than I thought. Must be the rubber and latex

"Forget paying thousands of dollars on a custom steel frame. This is a Reynolds 631 frame which is an incredible material to ride. You get the ride quality of a steel frame and the weight of an aluminum/carbon bike. Bike is in great condition and is race ready today. Has a very nice set of Bontrager Race Lite wheels with quick release skewers. Bike is in excellent condition and has a complete Shimano Ultegra drivetrain. Steel is the real deal. Bike has all the frame points to turn it in to a touring / adventure bike. Bike is about 57cm.


Comes with free clipless or standard pedals. Free lifetime adjustments and repairs minus the cost of future repair parts is also included with this bike. Enjoy a top quality bike with peace of mind that is priced much less than brand new entry level bikes with no warranty.

This bike will save you a ton of time and energy on your next race or ride.

Buy nice so you don't have to buy twice!!"

"condition: like new
make / manufacturer: Lemond
model name / number: Reynold 631"

https://norfolk.craigslist.org/bik/d...451749589.html

(The title touts 105, and the copy and bike have Ultegra. The ad has three photos of the "853" sticker. Precisely which "frame points" allow it to be a tourer? And it looks more like a 54 than a 57. If one wants $500 for a bike, the least they could do is get it right?)

Put A Cork In It

Super Rare Giant Campagnolo Wine Opener - $100 (Fan)









"For the Campy addict who has everything, this is an authentic made in Italy Campagnolo wine opener in the plot antique brass. Thess are super hard to find and usually only available direct from a bicycle shop supplier. Price is FIRM! Perfect for that post-ride bender this thing can open anything and is smooth as you've come to expect from Campy. A great an unique gift for the cyclist in your life. I'll even though in a Park Tool beer bottle opener. Cleaning out the clutter!"

While his 'facts' are a bit off, the price isn't that terrible.*

*I would not spend $100 on a corkscrew.

Neither would I, but you can bet there are tons of other collectors out there with cash to burn that would!

Looks like a collaboration between Campy and Oakley

Damnation, I always get it wrong. "Wacky..." or "Are You Looking...", and it never fails I post in the wrong thread. From now on I'll toss a coin. It's enough to drive a man to drink....

If only I had a corkscrew?
