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)

just ordered some. assuming they will be lost, stolen or broken within a few weeks $2.50 is an OK loss for me.

I bought that headlight recently, and the light is certainly bright enough and all. The problem is the mount broke on installation. If you don't mind the use of duct tape, it's a great value.

I got nothing against turning a profit.

But the whole "hey, look at me! I bought two of those cheap saddles and I'm flipping them for $120 on CL! Hardy har har!" thing is silly... and actually, not the smartest thing to write about, as a seller.

Just sayin'.

Especially when you know there are people on the forum who would have actually used them, and missed out on the deal.

well no one is going to buy a seat that you were alone with in the bathroom. is that the best place you could think to take photos?

GEORGE: Yes, I, uh, I need to return this book.

CASHIER: (Puts the book's code into the computer) I'm sorry, we can't take this book back.

GEORGE: Why not?

CASHIER: It's been flagged.

GEORGE: (Confused) Flagged?

CASHIER: It's been in the bathroom.

GEORGE: It says that on the computer?

CASHIER: Please take it home. We don't want it near the other books.

GEORGE: (Outraged. Leaving) Well, you just lost a lot of business! Because I love to read!

Hahaha, no that's actually not a bathroom...it's a sink which is in a separate room from the toilet. I only set them down there to take the pictures because it was at night and there was a decent light there.

If you'd like to check out the rest of my photography you can check it out here: https://robertturner.zenfolio.com/

I wasn't too concerned with composition for pictures on a craigslist ad...and I took them with my phone.

And to everybody else...I apologize. I wasn't trying to rub it into anybody's face that didn't get one, I was just saying thanks to the OP for pointing out such a good deal.

I have to say I love my 3 Timbuk2 bags, but when it came time to buy my fiancée one for school (Picked out last years xxl backpack style) I was appalled that the snaps to close the front flap are so small you can't even fill the thing up! That being said, I wouldn't ever buy a messenger bag without those front clips, as velcro can't hold everything! Definitely look up CL Timbuk2 bags if your going that route.

Yes, but working at a shop has helped me learned my lesson.
