Here is my Fake POST I placed on Craigslist inspired by BSNYC on Wednesday.
I got this bike shipped to me from my parents, little did they realize I had already bought a folding bike which is much easier to get up the stairs in my apartment.
I assembled it and it is ready to ride fixed speed. Comes with freewheel, but you can install a track cog. Includes brakes, but I doubt you will need them if you have a track cog. Would look cool with Pink Oury grips.
Willing to trade for Calculus or Physics texts that I need for next semester. Whatcha got?
I am also a bit dismayed where fixed gears and ..., gulp, fixed gear culture have gone in the last two years. But that doesn't mean I don't enjoy the hell out of riding mine. I also enjoy the Craigslist-Bicycles culture and getting indignant and revealing responses from CL trollers.
Enjoy the responses from my recent CL post of BSNYC's Mongoose Cachet.
Thats a piece of shit walmart bike.
I'll give you $50 for it today. -Ken
Hey just letting you know, that this bike can be bought brand new for $150.. So. You're asking of $300, well is a rip-off. What's the lowest you'll take for it? -Mike
Sorry to break your bubble, but you're currently asking twice the price that this bike is worth new. Don't think you'll get any buyers at $300 -Teddy
not sure if you're aware, but that bike retails for just $149.99 brand new~ -Andrew
do you still have the bike? -Ryan
this is that walmart bike right? so its only a single speed? -James
This bike is $150 new. There's been a lot of buzz about this one and I'm curious about it. I'll trade you my physics textbooks for it. I have everything for PHY 101 at ASU including the conceptual fundamentals manual. -Kyle
It isn't the first time I had fun on CL Phoenix. If you enjoyed the Cachet posting you will enjoy this more. Sometimes it is not easy to sell fixed gear conversion frames as you would think.
CL produces characters, need proof?
