Major Craigslist score

This is in the commuter thread because I am primarily a commuter. Plus I have freedoms protected by the constitution (presumably the U.S. one) that allow me to do what I want all of the time with no possibility of recourse against me.

But what I really meant to say is that I just got 16 park tools (including 5 cone wrenches, a bottom bracket tool, a crank puller, a pedal wrench, and a cassette tool, among others) a non-brand name chain whip, and tons of bits and pieces (including hundreds of bearings) for $60 from a guy here in Flagstaff who is preparing to move (it wasn't a scam; this guy did bike repairs and knew what he had; he just wanted to get rid of them). Now I can finally clean my cassettes and adjust my hubs.

that's almost as good as my '71 Colnago that was stuffed with $20's. Of course, it's really tough to get the last few twenties out of the downtube.

Can we also include Ebay scores? I just scored a NEW Axiom Ring Shopper pannier/bag for $10.50! I've been looking for a grocery pannier for my commuter, the type that fits a grocery brown bag and can be detached easily for shopping. Most of them are pretty pricey at around $30. Too much for me for something seemingly simple. The Axiom bag is smaller in volume space and has a floral design, but that's fine with me at $10.50 with free shipping! It normally goes for around $50 new and thee are some on Ebay for around $30.
