    Slightly optimistic price, but at least he's enthusiastic...

    Most confusing ad ever - most expensive Cannondale ever.

    This ebay ad is absurd:
    http://cgi.ebay.com/Bridgestone-MB-2...item230537ea2a

    He's asking $550 for an MB2 and $138 to ship it! I love his liberal use of exclamation points:

    "I HAVE A BRIDGESTONE MB-2!"

    "MINE HAS A DIFFERENT SEAT (THE LIBERATOR SEAT)!"

    "SOME ARE SELLING THEIRS AT OVER $1200 AND OTHERS AT CLOSE TO $1000!"

    "IT LOOKS LIKE I FORGOT TO ADD THE FRAME SIZE!"

    "PLEASE ONLY WATCH IF YOU INTEND TO MAKE A BID, THANKS FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING!"

    Josh,

    Just an FYI:


    While the title of this thread may make you think it is "For Outing Stuff", (scroll up and read Mendon's introductory posts), it's was actually supposed to be a thread for the guys who are for/against outing to bang bars, and discuss why each other are wrong.

    It also eneded up being a place to "out" ridiculous CL stuff for fun.


    Posting a link to a decent vintage bike might get your hand slappped.

    Look, I'm the first to admit I like to stir the pot and give grief to a newbie (or you or GM or Stan)...but you really have it out for this guy. You've lost it man!

    My mistake Steve, and I appreciate the explanation. Sorry everyone! I was under the wrong impression from a few of the posts above mine.

    So my ignorance spawns the question - is everyone here pretty much against Outing items on places like craigslist? Are there places where I can post about something and see what people think (like whether or not to pick it up?)

    Thanks Steve.

    Josh, retrobike uk outs and discuss. But you're right. Not everybody is outing appropriate items. For example, that Otis is not ridiculous. That's a VRC worthy item within a reasonable price range even though it probably a bit on the spendy side.

    The Bridgestone is also on the spendy side but who knows, there's a real fan base.

    Haha thanks for looking out, but Steve's just dishing out what I deserve - I stepped on more than a few toes with that ebay posting so my apologies for that.

    And thanks sfgirlonbike for the info - I have only spent a small amount of time on retrobike uk to check stuff out, never to contribute in any way. I saw that a few people on here live in SoCal so maybe they're looking at the same stuff I am!

    I also saw that Otis and Bridgestone and thought they were reasonable to the right buyer - looks like I wasn't the only one confused about the purpose of this thread.

    Back to the task at hand - I think outing ridiculous postings on craigslist or ebay should be allowed because it's often hilarious. Especially if someone really grinds the seller, like BSNYC does.

    Bikes are so cheap in Cali. That Ventana would go for at least $600 in Toronto.

    I agree California (especially So-cal) is pretty cheap. I think Orange County has some of the cheapest buys around. Not sure if it's because the people there can afford to buy and just "throw away" on craigslist, or what?

    If you have never had a Ventana or gotten a close look at one I can tell you they are absolute top shelf quality. I had a Ventana El salt. Weld quality and attention to detail are incredible. That bike is literally 5 miles from my house but I have no money until next Thursday. I strongly suggest you send one of your Cunninghams, Potts or any of the other crappy bikes you collect to me so I can make the trade for you.

    Current situation notwithstanding, asking it in a neutral format, IE: "someone in my area is selling this .... What's the deal, anyone heard anything", etc. Versus posting the ebay/CL link?

    The difference seems cut an dry to me. A little discretion goes a long way.

    Yeah, that guy with the '86 MB-2 is a piece of work. That's at least the third time he's listed that thing with no takers. I always take notice of it, because I sold this near-mint '86 MB-2 last year for less than half of his starting bid:

    "Others are selling theirs at over $1,200..." If he really believes that, he's got to be wondering what's going wrong with his auctions. I can't understand how people can keep paying the listing fees without dropping their starting bid.

    EDIT: ...and I'm happy to say I watch it every time. Glad to learn it must really annoy him to have lots of watchers with no bidders...

    One was listed here in San Diego. MB-2 all original near mint. $45 dollars. Shot an email to my neighbor who has been looking for a good cheap bike and he got it.
