I would say so; it's hardly used and comes with more free accessories. Can't go wrong with either of the first two though, I'd say. What's up with all these great deals in the Northeast? People here in the west try to rip you off so bad in comparison.

I'm the one selling these.

I'm pretty sure a ziptie would work fine for mounting it. The benefit of the original SKS ones is that they are rubber, so there's no risk of damaging the paint on your bike.

As for the bend, not sure if a hair dryer / heat would help... maybe.

At this point, I'm just looking to get rid of them for cheap, so you can offer me whatever for them, if you still want em.

Planet bike/ SKS sells replacement straps which are interchangeable b/w speed ez's and race blade fenders respectively ; they're actually meant to be consumables considering you're supposed to cut off the excess.

I have that same exact bike. I got mine for cheaper but it was in amazing condition. It's a great bike and a smooth fun ride. I'd talk him down on that price for sure.

The steamroller seems like a great frame. I always have an eye out for one.
I say since its such a great deal and seems to be in great shape, start at 250 and meet at 275.I believe they run around 450 new with fork.
Some of us who post ads on craigslist care less about marking up the item and more so about a quick sale. Nothing more annoying than the barrage of lowballers you get on craigslist trying to haggle .50 off a $1 item.

That looks like the inside of one of my LBS's. Offer 225, meet at 250.
