That bike is 100% bad karma. Anyone who would perform this sacrilegious act to any bike should get a heavy dose of Spanish Inquisition beat-down, such as having their right testicle nailed to a stump or something.

He gets most of his bikes as LBS giveaways and from scrappers. I don't think he'd paint them. It just might be a ghost bike being reincarnated.

All blue ghost bike -- memorial for bicyclist who died at sea. (And on a semi-serious note, given this is a college town between two lakes, it's probably happened here....)

Either seller got took when he bought it and now thinks he's just passing on a legitimate saddle at a fair price or he's a straight forward con.

This is another example of "buyer beware". I've noticed trends lately where ads either insert a key word or leave one out to enhance the deception.

Finally! Pedals for the Abarimon

These are just what they need to join in our races!

This won't work the way you think it will...

About the Abarimon

The pedals otherwise look good. It's always the cages that are impossible to find. Loss leader, perhaps?

^^^^ Maybe it's his solution to the unicorn cages thing. Just swap the spindles, and you're GTG.

That's actually creative! I have the 600EX versions at home that that would work for. I don't know how the 105's work, unless they're like modern SPD's with a retaining nut at the spindle to keep it in place.
