Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

What a shame it's not my size.

Well this is one-size-fits-all and quite a bargain!

Looks good to me. I'd go for it if the forklift came with it.

That was my thought. That bike had a nasty fall. Can we get a pic of the wheels?

Maybe it fell off a car at 80 mph and slid for 200 feet. Good luck with the $599 starting price.

They say that Merlin is great for parts. I wonder which parts are even usable on a frame that! Maybe the brake pads...

599?

If he gives me 50 bucks, I'll take it off his hands.

Ouch.

He no doubt has to sell it because the friend is on life support.

That'll teach him to ride so carelessly in the forklift lane.

(RD might still be good, FD might be too... brakes seem ok... BB could probably be counted on. I can't even figure out what's gone wrong with the handlebars or the pedals... And that's not only a trashed stem, but a trashed quill stem. So that's what, a pair of used DA brakes and an unknown BB? I'd say $50.)

Edit: there's no front brake. Heh.

Here's another one of his - - that's certainly a 'dent'
https://cgi.ebay.com/Specialized-Sequ...QQcmdZViewItem
(at least that one would have plenty of useful parts - and it's up for much less

And none of his bikes are big on front wheels...

Maybe he works at the police station and is selling off the kit that's come in from road deaths and such... he's got a lot of random kit to sell.

I'll also call his bluff on knowing nothing about bicycles - he just doesn't want questions - - if he knew nothing about bicycles, he wouldn't be taking pictures of aheadsets.
