    It's a hand crank clamp....not spring loaded. So it probably isn't that tight.

    Sadly, I'm inclined to believe you.

    ^ ya, whatever makes you feel better. IMO that falls under the "more money than brains" category. you've got a USED bike worth over $5k and you clamp the carbon frame.

    ^ first, don't act like that's not your ad. i know you chopped that bike up and then realized you can't turn the cranks. oh well, the pedal makes a nice kickstand.

    you made abstract lowrider garage art

    I ran out of money before I put the hydros on it so you could raise the BB and pedal. It's in cruise mode in that pic.

    It looks like it's already snapped in half, which would save time I guess...

    You won't need a kickstand the pedals hit the ground already (providing extra traction). I think it's an "Ice-bike."

    I found this gem today. Apparently it's vintage from the 1700's. I had no idea that fat ebikes were so old school.

    Old bikes were sacrificed to make new bikes. I love that it has a Shimano XTR sticker on it, but looks like a Tourney drivetrain. Close enough, right?

    Post your CraigsList WTF's!?! here-20170124_180237.jpg

    From a local site. Nothing really extraordinary in the bike itself, but just the way the seller tries to push it into every single wanted mountain bike ad is kind of questionable.. Doesn't matter whether they're looking for a hardtail or trail bike, he'll tell them it's great for downhills and trails, but practically leaves the "what about uphills" part missing. Gets pissed when someone calls him on his BS. Just pisses me off how these people are trying to sell a bike that is not suited for the buyer, and eventually someone unaware of a fact that it's a downhill bike will buy it to ride XC with it... There's never too many riders out there, and we certainly don't need them to get screwed right away

    This is clear evidence of just how long fat tires and electric bike motors have been around. Fantastic.

    yeah, if riding a motorbike that requires a license plate at 60mph with rim brakes is badass by all means, have at it. just do me a favor and wear a motorcycle helmet and jacket. and maybe some old school bomber goggles for good measure.

    That is simultaneously awesome and completely horrifying at the same time.

    And they're not even v brakes are they? Looks like some really low end caliper road brakes.

    They should have gone with a coaster brake. Can you imagine the excellent modulation of a coaster brake at 60mph...

    Here's a kinda similar one, though it looks like it was executed better. But how the hell do you ride it???

    He's asking $200 if anyone's interested (and has a much better back than I do).

    That might be one of those recumbent bikes, you pedal with your hands and steer with your feet.

    I guess you'd still need long arms to reach the pedals...

    As Kiwiplague said, it looks like it already snapped in half. A failed attempt at making it right again.

    a question though. if they're twins, shouldn't they like the same saddle?

    and there's only two pedals, what do they do with the extra two legs that are in the middle of the frame? what about the two extra arms? where do those go?

    clearly this wasn't well thought out.

    I was thinking the same thing. If he truly had conjoined nephews, I'm pretty sure they would separate them when very young, not wait until they were big enough for that bike. Unless he just got excited and was planning for many years from now. But yeah, BS.

    I seen an exercise bike a while ago that I *almost* wanted to buy. I saved a pic instead.

    The color was striking, kinda like Golden Root-Beer or something.

    I remember those, well! And even that color. I believe my brothers Sting Ray was the same flavor in the late 60's. That one looks pretty cherry. It's probably been covered by underwear and clothing for decades! I worked at a Schwinn dealer in Westminster, CA in the very early eighties while going to a College down there right before I departed for service with USN. I used to put those together, including all the other bikes which were mostly 5 spd beach cruisers that were the big thing, then. The Air-Dyne was the sh*t at the time, IIRC, for exercisers back then.
