    so most of us here probably trawl craigslist for that great deal. that being said nothing makes me happier (or more upset) than this shit

    you just have to laugh. if you see something ridiculous (or awesome) throw it up here.

    This guy is back. His schwinn varsity has been marked down about 200 bucks from its original price to a whopping $575.

    http://sfbay.craigslist.org/sfc/clo/1302356445.html

    That guy is selling "dirty hipster panties" for your sniffing pleasure.

    yeah that moron thinks he's gonna get big bucks for a conversion.

    ^ thats awesome. definitely a track bike. not a conversion at all and fxck the lowball offers.

    Also the guy with the schwinn conversion in SF, is one of my all time favorites. the best part is "People are always asking if I can sell my setup to them and I always said no but Now Im broke and need cash..."

    really people always asking to buy it... why isnt it sold then...

    I know the guy selling those. They're brand new, so that's why he's selling it for that much still. Pretty much just saves the hassle of someone getting it built themselves.

    -Deep V’s shows signs of use but have no problems

    Dude that's the definition of NOT brand new. You may know the dude but he's just trying to cash in on a fuckin Mash logo on his hubs.

    I've got a set of much newer Phils laced to much newer Deep Vs and a goddamn handful of little Mash stickers I'll sell someone for $515 shipped. Save yourself five bucks! :)
    Oh and if you act now I'll include a beat to shit Soma cycling cap (fuckin cred you guys), a Soma Everwear with a real skid patch worn through it (double cred!) AND a picture of your new wheelset being used to deliver an actual package!

    ^Oh shit, didn't see that. Coulda sworn he was selling new because he sells a lot of his stuff brand new.

    Well, at least he's honest.

    " I do not know the exact name of the bike..."; "dont know what biopace is look it up"

    Okay, then.

    Lugged Motebecane Something (looks like a better one, from the lugs). And he's apparently selling it with the wheelset, which makes $200 a pretty digestible deal for NYC.

    This is a demo frame built by Tim Sanner, the Bay Area framebuilder wes m. scarfed a frame up from not too long ago. He's just listed it on sfbay Craigslist; I figured someone here might be interested (too small for me, I'm not a fixed-speed guy, and I have no cash at the moment anyhow).

    52cm lugged steel track frame

    Hand Crafted Track Frame, Lugged Steel (Palo Alto)

    I have a really nice track frame that I built as an item to show shops who would potentially carry my frames.

    About the frame:
    -Lugged construction-- investment cast, silver brazed.
    -Bare metal, I WILL POWDER COAT IT YOUR COLOR CHOICE! Colors on my website, http://www.sannercycles.com/finishing.htm
    -52cm, 74 degree "squared" geometry
    -No holes, drillings, braze ons or any of that BS.
    -4cm (very high) bottom bracket
    -Columbus tubing

    Again the frame is bare metal right now, but in terms of the build it is almost the same as the one pictured

    Make me an offer! This is an awesome frameset... not to mention you get to pick the color! I even accept credit card.
    If you want a frame like this in a different size I can build you one.

    Yeah, I vouch for the quality of his work. He's a friendly guy too. The picture in that ad is of my frame, I guess the new one is identical but unpainted. I dont know though, I havent talked to him about it. I bet he will take a low offer if you are a motivated buyer.

I can only imagine how many kids emailed him looking for any white saddle they could get before he decided to start putting "no white saddles" in his ad.

I can only imagine how many kids emailed him looking for any white saddle they could get before he decided to start putting "no white saddles" in his ad.

    He's been doing that for a few months; the white-saddle-fetish thing has been going on around the Bay Area for some time.

    He's a reasonable guy; I bought a Campy Record seatpost off him in June, and he drove it up from San Jose to deliver while he was in Berkeley. I imagine he's tired of the emails from the Nü-Freds saying "But...but...I really need a white saddle to match my Deep Vs* and Zaffiros*! I know they're rare, but rocking parts that other fredz can't get makes me kül!"

    *Note: In the interest of civil community relations, I did not link to any of the many bikes on velospace with white Deep Vs, white Zaffiros, or (in a few alarming cases) both.

    Having said that, I will be taking not one, but two white saddles to the Mosswood Park swap tomorrow in Oakland. Style-weasels may purchase them if they wish, in exchange for a lot of money.

    Newly built Fuji Team fixed gear 56cm
    This is one of my favorite bikes I have ridden but the rent must be paid. The frame on this bike is a mid 80’s Fuji team that is made out of quad butted steel. The geometry is super tight reminiscent of the geometry of true track bikes. I am sorry to have to let this one go.
    Frame: Fuji Team quad butted steel
    56cm c to c seat tube
    55cm c to c top tube
    31.5'' stand over height
    Crank set: Shimano 600
    Saddle: vintage Brooks b-15
    Wheel set: Formula flip flop hubs, Continental 4000 tires, and Weinmann DP 18 rims
    Handlebar: a chopped Easton monkeybar, oury grips,
    Seat post: Thompson Elite with micro adjust
    Front break: Campagnolo veloce with a cane creek lever
    Freewheel: 17t
    Fixed cog: 16t
