Ebay/Craigslist: Part III, Read the Rules

Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

In Soviet Russia bike welds you!

Worth $550? I doubt it. If he relists lower I'm all over it.

this one just sold for $200 with Superbe Pro cranks and headset...

That's how I paid $250 last week for the Greg Lemond track bike I posted in the picture thread.
Ayup. I paid 250$CDN for my SLX Marinoni with full Dura Ace. Darn good deal, too bad I have too many bikes, so I sold it. I paid 75$CDN for a nice black/celeste Bianchi in the summer, it would fetch at least 300$USD on eBay but I gave it to my friend. There are deals out there, you just have to sniff them out....

Hot. Unfortunately it is 10cm too small. A longer stem and a high seat post should fix that, right?
