    If he's out fighting crime, he needs one of those Hall of Justice killer name like SuperKlasse or somethin' like that.

    The frame size of that red Phoenix is also larger than your IQ
    But we're kind enough not to keep bringing that up over and over.

    So let me ask you this - if you saw me on the trail w/a flat tire and no pump or tube, would you offer to give me a tube and/or let me borrow your bike pump?

    okay, i figure i'd have to buy the tube and we would haggle over price, hahahahahah

    I'd give you a tube and loan you the pump no questions asked. Trail etiquette and hounding for parts on eBay are two very different things.

    it's basically economics - some say they cater to the buyer and sellers will go where they have the most buyers. (ebay has the most buyers)

    here's a lnk to Block Bidder Info: http://pages.ebay.com/help/sell/mana..._ov.html#block

    It looks silly to me to have a seat post longer than the seat tube

    but if YOU like it then it's a good bike for YOU

    I see that you may have "collected" a few of these frames Picture Friday (7-16-10) so perhaps you have an economic interest in convincing people that it "looks cool" but again - I dissent

    sorry dude, hahahahaha

    Those are so funny. All those bikes should have the seat lowered. About 6 to 8 inches each.

    The VRC community has shared community standards about appropriate seat post exposure, and these are all a bit ... risque'. Anything more than the norm is immodest.

    Small dents - laughable!!!

    da'HOOV,

    Thanks for the ad posting, "small dents" is a bit of an understatement, see attached picture (since the ad won't last).

    Who hated that bike so much they went after it with a ball-peened hammer?

    Thanks for the laugh!

    This one borders on (doubt many of the locals want a DB WCF frame...) what this thread was set up for, to point out pie in the sky listings, people who have a better sense of humor, than bike knowledge, etc.

    What it's not, is a source to list bikes folks might actually be interested in.

    Just thought I'd say this again, since most never seem to read the whole thread prior to posting some Cunningham seen in their local CL for $50.....
    This is a Pugs not some carbon wannabee pretzel wagon!!

    I don't think Tomac ever rode for DBR, but some other pretty big names did in the early/mid 90s. They had some interesting bikes for a while:

    1993-95 Axis TT - Sandvik-made titanium hardtails
    1995-97 WCF - "Welded" Carbon Fiber
    1996 Axis - Prestige frame - one-year only
    1996-97 Zetec Pro and '98 Team Issue - Easton Program Elite hardtails
    1997 V-Link Pro - carbon fiber full suspension (survived in '98 as V6 Team)
    1998 V8 and '99 XR8 - 3" travel full suspension at about 25 pounds

    Basically, they were a mass producer doing some cool things at the top of their range and, for quite some time, running a pretty good race team. All that pretty much stopped when they got bought out around 1999-2000.

    Sorry - I guess I didn't think that nitpicking something like that was over the line - I found it to be a pretty funny bogus weight claim.

    FATs on ebay are certainly not something that are rare (1/day shows up I'd guess) so I wasn't really concerned about "outing" somebody's find.

    Does this count for VRC?


    Hopefully they'll be worn by someone not quite so vintage.

    Lots of custom work! Apparently that means cheap tires and "a Shimano 8=speed V-Brake System". Firm on price!

    http://nashville.craigslist.org/bik/1943475509.html

    Ad quote:
    "This bike if truly one of a kind....i found it about a year and a half ago and it was in not so good a shape, just not taken care of. I have cleaned it up and put a ton of work into it. I bought it for 300.00 and it is 700.00 new. I have put new tires (Nimbus ES26x1.50) on it as well as a Shimano 8=speed V-Brake System on the bike. Each costing roughly 70.00 on each side. This is a hybrid bike that does wonderful on streets or trails, and is perfect for biking around campus or doing long runs with friends. I usually take it out on 40-50mi runs and have never had any problems with it at all! this bike is a steal at this price and for what has been put on it. Serious inquiries only please! Firm on the price thanks!!"

    Here is a Mountain Goat in the York, PA area. I'm pretty sure this is the guy that lists a ton of bikes and is actually closer to Baltimore.

    I believe thats a 92, base model Stumpjumper (I had the 91 model). They were the $700 price point bike if I remember right. They've gone up in value!

    That Goat has been listed many times on eBay recently and is there again. I actually thought about posting it here because of the many ridiculous assertions in his ad (about it being hand-brazed by Jeff Lindsay, when it's clearly a welded bike, about it being the first Goat ever produced, about the one piece bar-stem combo when you can easily see the pinch bolts holding the bar in the stem, etc.). It's not a terrible price, but there are so many outright lies in the ad it does seem to qualify for this space.

    "HERES AN OLD KHS ALUMINUM, 17 INCH, MOUNTAIN BIKE FRAME FROM THE 90'S. IT HAS BEEN DENTED AND HAD HOLES DRILLED IN IT. MY BUDDY WORKED AT THE KHS FACTORY, AND IN ORDER FOR THE WORKERS TO GET A FREE BIKE, THEY HAD TO TAKE A HAMMER AND DENT IT. THAT WAY IT COULD NEVER BE SOLD AS A NEW BIKE. OTHER THAN THE LOOKS OF THE DAMAGE, IT RIDES GREAT, SUPER LIGHT BIKE. "

    In the condition, ebay states: The item may have some signs of cosmetic wear, but is fully operational and functions as intended.

    Now I can't figure out if this ad should be considered fraudulent or not. Initially, it seems that this frame has more than cosmetic wear and is not functional nor can function as intended. There is now way you can safely ride this. OTOH, the only reason the bike left the factory is because of the dent so it might be "as intended".

    Me thinks the seller would get more money bringing it to the bringing the frame to the recycling center at 81 cents/lb and selling the bottle rack alone.

    Oh, that Klein, he calls it a "head turner", we think of it as a "head shaker"

    No they are not worth anywhere near that much but that doesn't seem to stop people from paying that much.

    By the way, this thread is not literally for outing. It is intended for entertainment purposes. The idea is to highlight the more ridiculous items you come across on ebay and CL.

    Thanks for pointing this out. I figured I'd post this again, since it seems so many stop by this thread, and don't get that point. Perhaps it's gotten big, so they just skip to the last page.

    So, to put it right up front again, here it is....

    The Official outing thread, Craigslist, eBay etc
    So the VRC has some odd feelings about outing of articles found on eBay (not as much) Craigslist (quite a bit) and various other venues of purchase.

    Some feel it's no big deal, ever, others feel it should never be done, while yet still others think it's fine, with certain parameters met, like not in my backyard, only if no one would want it anyway, it's fine cause it's so obscenely overpriced it's good for a laugh, etc.

    This thread is offered as education for the newb, solace for the member who just got strung up about it, and in general, a place to hash it out, pretty much unrestricted. Not gonna change anything, but we VRCer's do like to go on and on about the same thing, forever, must be all our time spent with steel wool and lacquer thinner Other sites feel that this practice is AOK, but this place is a bit different. I took over as mod, and the rule was in place. I keep it up, since it makes a number of folks feel like their sacred hunting grounds have a protector of sorts.

    Discuss, keep a modicum of decency, and have at it.

    The official word can be found here amongst all the rules and guidelines: NEW MEMBERS (and old) PLEASE READ...Forum guidelines, Links, General info

    For those too lazy to read that much, a direct thread link to a good discussion of it is here: NEW MEMBERS (and old) PLEASE READ...Forum guidelines, Links, General info

    That one is old though, so we'd better rehash it some more

    Since they're pink maybe it's a fundraiser for breast cancer research? Hopefully it's tax deductible!
