    Dion, your awesomeness transcends the 80's!

    The 80's are like your friend who gets really drunk and begins to sing cock-rock karaoke at the top of his out of tune lungs while wearing neon spandex and a lampshade on his head. Sure, the dude may have pulled you out of a tough spot that one time, and he is fun to drunk dial... but really... most of the time you are in public with him, you are denying that you know him

    You know that one scene in Dumbo with all the technicolor dancing elephants? Don't know why, but it scared the piss out of me when I was really little. I have never been able to look at neon colors the same since

    The official colors of the 80's were florescent/ neon colors. So, whenever I think of the 80's I think of trauma-inducing technicolor dancing elephants.

    The 80's are scary!

    Neon didn't take off until mid to late 80s. It may be the official color of the 80s to people born in the 90s going to "80s night" at a club or bar, but I don't think anyone who lived the 80s is going to agree with you.

    A little misguidance!

    1997 Specialized Hard Rock Mt bike
    The only thing wrong with this bike is the seat post is stuck!
    I don't think so!

    This ridiculous pricing is commonplace in Milwaukee :/

    REDUCED! Trek 930 Singletrack Mountain Bike

    MSRP on the bike was actually $500 according to Bikepedia.

    After looking at the steerer tube/stem combo on that, i'd be sad too.

    Hipster-ass Hipster Bike for Hipsters
    Date: 2012-03-11, 12:47PM CDT

    I am selling my Vista Carrera 7 road bike. Perfect for the aspiring culture creator. I have recently become a Successful Entrepreneur and I no longer have the need for such trifling possessions. I drive a gigantic cargo van that literally pisses gas onto the road to mark its territory.

    Do you want to be noticed? Do you want to stand out from the crowd? Sleeve tattoo didn't do the trick? Dubstep bounce remix didn't go viral? Look no further than this bike. Don't even look past it in the pictures posted below. Import it into Photoshop and delete the background. I know you know how to do it, because you're a graphic designer.

    Orange body. Green accents. Pink handlebar wrap. Some silver. Black. Dirt. Are there even any more colors? There are awesome reflective stickers on the bike, too, which makes darting out in front of automobiles on dark evenings and asserting one's absolute and total right of way even more self-righteously awesome. Dear motorist: Did you not see the stickers. Do you think I have time to just put stickers on things. I'm trying to save the world from people like you.

    Just think of all the great places you could see and be seen on this bike:

    1. An Obama rally
    2. A Ron Paul rally
    3. Rally's
    4. Miscellaneous

    The possibilities are endless.

    This bike will get you laid. If you ride this bike around Audobon Park at 1 in the morning without pants on, dudes will literally knock you off of your bike to try to blow you.

    This bike is a freewheel fixed gear, because you're a ****ing monster and you have one speed, and that speed is +/- 15mph.

    A seat comes with the bike, but is not pictured. If you want, you can ride the bike without the seat to simulate the stick you have up your ass about which Pavement album is best, which political cause that matters to you most intermittently, or about whatever it is that you "do."

    SAFETY FEATURES

    This bike is Japanese and comes with four distinct safety features:

    Safety Feature #1: front brakes only. Because you're not about to conform to anyone's preconceived notions of how a bike should stop.

    Safety Feature #2: Quick release back wheel. I took this bike to Mike the Bike Guy on Magazine to get a tune up once, and he refused to work on it because of this Safety Feature. He said it was a "Frankenstein bike." I asked him if he didn't agree that Frankenstein was a literary masterpiece. I thought that after losing that argument he might be a gentleman and agree to tune up the bike for free, but he remained all pissy and still refused to work on it, even for money.

    The next time I went in to Mike the Bike Guy on Magazine was to get air. I was all, hey MTBG, can I get some air? He was all yes. It was clear that we both believed that air is a free resource that should not be commodified. Common ground. He pointed me toward his air machine. Everything seemed cool. When I realized that the nozzle didn't fit my bike's tires, I was all, hey MTBG, how does this nozzle go on? He looked at me, turned around, took two steps toward the back of the room, and let out a loud SIGH. I couldn't blame him. I work with people too, and sometimes they ask me questions because they don't know things and I am the paid expert on the exact things they don't know and I am standing right next to them, and I have to humiliate them in front of others before I answer them, too. It's all just part of the job.

    Safety Feature #3: Helmet. That's my helmet. You can ride in a painter's cap and pretend to be smart at the same time, but you're not fooling anyone.

    Safety Feature #4: Welding fix at seat joint. When this joint came loose, the bike was deemed horribly unsafe. When I welded it back together, it became safe again, therefore: safety feature. It's supersturdy now; I welded it to **** and back. I painted the welding joint green because I was feeling creative and I don't have to explain my art to anyone.

    Safety Feature #5: Apparently this bike has really nice rims. I am listing this under Safety Features because I feel that less-nice rims would probably make the bike marginally less safe.

    Safety Feature $6: Earthquake proof.

    $180 or best offer. Cash is fine. Your parents can PayPal me directly. Or see below:

    I'm totally into creative trades (this part is actually serious). Musical instruments (serious - esp synths and pedals); original art (serious); US Currency (for srsly); leisure suits (I'm 6'1'', 180, with long arms and broad shoulders. Let's stick with dark colors - I'm kind of pale and I don't like to look washed out); real estate/underwater mortgages (4realz dogg); antique firearms (I promise I won't trade you the bike and then shoot you with what was previously your firearm in order to steal my bike back and sell it again, although wouldn't that be ironic, or would it, I don't know, we use the word incorrectly so often that I'm not sure it matters); casual sex. Show me what you got.
