    ^^you might think it's a typo and they meant $90, but there's a similar one (motorized) from the same seller for $1100!

    Throw in a squeeze horn and it's a deal. I sold an old junk couch for $300 on craigslist. The buyer drove some 120 miles to pick it up. It was weird.

    This guy posts this up weekly.


    If you are in town for a few weeks or a couple of months , I'll rent out my low priced bikes for $15 a month . You pay me full purchase price and I'll guarantee a buy back price that will be $15 a month lower than you paid. After 4 months the rent per month will drop. For example on this bike I'm selling for $95 you give me the $95 when you pick up and return to me 2 months later and I'll give you back $70 That price will be paid regardless of flat tires , or component damage except for smashed up wheels or missing seats . Small adjustments will be made for those. The deposit for the U-lock if you want it is $25 but you get the $25 back when you return the lock . You have the option of selling the bike yourself and don't need to notify me . .
    This is a road bike from the 80s with a 22" / 56 cm frame that would be best suited for 5'10" to 6'2" riders. this is a bike I've rented out twice before with satisfied renters each time. I tune it up between rentals so it is in top condition. Has a lot of nce features

    Oh man, I wish I would have saved the 'museum quality Shogun' road bike auction that was posted for about 3 months (until just a week or so ago) on Cleveland CL. Even funnier than the guy demanding $3K (which he eventually lowered to $2K) for a early-80's mass-produced road bike (consensus value was $75-150 or so according to roadbikereview.com) with no pictures (wouldn't do the bike justice) were the posts that started popping up from people who were tired of his daily posts and general douch-ey attitude...

    Jimmy Descant Original Rocket Bike - $1500

    This bike was sold at the 2005 Jazz Fest and while Jimmy has been making bikes for years but they are becoming more precious and hard to find. The one currently listed on his website is going for $10,000 (www.deluxerocketships.com). I need to pay some bills and I will take $1500. The bike rocket engines, headlight, alarm and a working 8-track player. I am happy to deliver in the New Orleans area. I am also open to the possiblity of trading for a high-end mountain bike or high-end modern furniture (i.e. Design Within Reach, etc) as I am trying to furnish as house.

    http://richmond.craigslist.org/bik/1585631913.html

    she says she paid 900 for it but the msrp is less than 200... and she keeps on reposting and reposting and reposting...



    "I got an Iron Horse Maverick 1.5 brand new in August 2008, it was sold to me for $900. Because of it's age I knocked down the price, but I rode it probably twice and since then it has just been sitting in my living room. It is a chrome blue and very nice, still in new condition. This is an all terrain bike, advertised as a mountain bike but great for beginners and everyday use. The tires are in great condition, the kick stand is on, and I can sell it with a really nice lock and a rack for the car. I'm trying not to go too low in price since it is such a nice bike. Please email me asap before I take it to a store, where I'm sure they'll under pay me and over charge you! Thanks! "

    I moved from burlington VT to richmond VA about 2 months ago and the difference in bike quality here in VA is SOOOOOOO shitttttay like every other add is reposted every week for the same dam huffy and all they say is "clean 18 speed" or some dumb hillbilly sister dumpster fuk stuff... I miss burlington, where you could buy an arsenal of high quailty used bikes and parts if only you had the money... (which I didnt)

    I guess its the fact that there are no mtns too close and the fact that RIC VA is full of ghetto living sketch balls and sister funkin rednecks that wouldn't knwo the difference between a $6000 dollar bike and a $100 huffy...

    Sell me a BIKE this WEEKEND!! CASH!! - $500 (Chan)


    I need a bike for my commute to work 52cm-54cm. I want you to sell it to me!! I Like road bikes of all kind with decent components, I like fixed gears and single speeds. I love cyclocross bikes. Anything with a rear rack mount and or fender mounts a huge ples in my book. If you are thinking about getting rid of a bike I will ride it and give it a great home. Just reply to my e-mail and tell me what you want to sell me and pics are also welcome.

    Thanks For looking
    I've seen this one come up quite often. Lazy bum can't even use the search function of Craigslist.

    OK, I'm thinking in my head about what type of bike I have. A couple of hints: It is black, has thin racing tires, aerodynamic seat, and handlebars. Use your mental telepathy powers to determine
    what type of bike it is and then make me an offer.

    Was this thing even $2000 when it was new? And it sure doesn't look like its from 2001.



    Like-new 2001 Specialized FSR Pro Fully-Active Suspension Mountain Bike. Sadly, this beast has spent most of its time indoors and in storage. This is an amazing bike, and has VERY few miles on it... just come take a look at it... it's like new! This bike and all of its components and parts are very highly ranked, with an average of 4 out-of 5 stars on MTBR.com. $2,000.
