    Control Tech eBay Score

    I'm still a bit shocked by this.

    Am I the only one with a 1" threadless setup (well, I'll have one soon when Mr. Igleheart gets around to my project), or are these just not vintage (and not quill) enough to be sought after?

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=140473950557

    and

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=140473950693

    either way, 2 nice stems delivered for $16, I'll take it.

    More like, lock the drunks heads and hands into that thing in the village square until they sober up. It looks positively medieval.

    Sure by reducing the amount of material by 50% you increase the strength of the structure 60% of the time all the time.

    San Diego is bringing it lately. At first I really thought this was a misplaced decimal point but he quite clearly writes out the price in the ad.

    http://sandiego.craigslist.org/csd/bik/2078998461.html

    Complete delusion.

    I saw that one too and had a good laugh. Certainly a nice bike but c'mon. San Diego is the worst for over-estimating value. There is a Parkpre listed here for $1000, seller claims the frame is titanium coated. And the tubes are "tang"

    http://cgi.ebay.com/Vintage-Gary-Fis...-/150524599746

    I might sit on it for a moment. Perhaps if the ground were muddy. Ride it? Nah. I don't think I would, thank you.

    I wonder what the seller might consider to be an unacceptable level of damage to a frame.

    The ad states: Also included is a new chrome Colnago Precisa straight blade road fork (not pictured).

    You know, you'd think if someone is going to drop 50 grand on a bike and it comes with a fork, you could at least spend the extra 35 cents to included a picture of said fork.

    Indeed. And an overlap with deep pockets. $50k is crazy....
    But I know lots of cats in Japan who would spring $5k for it though.

    Yeah, $50k is nuts but I am unsurprised by the one pulling $4k.

    And it's a Spacialized. Does that mean you can fit more stuff on the rack?

    Seriously, though, I always dig seeing decent bikes (or lame bikes, for that matter) turned into practical transportation. Aside from the saddle nose being aimed at the bottom bracket, there's nothing too egrigious (and, more importantly, irreversable) about that one. For me, it's not in the same category as grinding the braze-ons off a Colnago Mexico to turn it into a fixed-gear freestyler.

    I think the guys at the LBS wince at my totally Fredded-up 95 Bizango, but it's a pretty handy daily driver!

    For folks who aren't in the habit of opening a thread, and reading from the top, yes, that's true.

    anyone who thinks that a sticky called "The Official outing thread, Craigslist, eBay etc" is an, um, official thread for outing things on craigs or eBay MUST be completely ignorant.

    Sometimes you just have to read a few neighboring posts to get it...not all 10 pages. However, there are others that post and run.

    if you can't sell it for 199, you should definitely relist it for 2000.

    But why?

    A lot invested in a low end frame

    "Restored Bridgestone Mountain Bike with many authentic period and high-end parts. 19" or size Large. You will not find one like this. I built this myself from a stock MB-5 frame (I have the original rigid fork too, primed with no enamel.) Sandblasted this down to raw steel and primed and enameled the frame, created and applied the wet-release decals and then shot with automotive clear coat. It has a similar paint job to an MB-1 or Zip but these welds ain't gonna snap someday. I purposely did not make it identical to an MB-1 though I could have, it would not have been authentic."

    You'll also have to at least add some lugs to make it appear more similar to a MB-1, never mind the Ritchey Logic prestige tubing and forks, extra weight or that the zip wasn't made in 1992.

    Yeah, a lot of work for a low end frame. Now, before we get into a heated debate about how low end blah blah blah elitist blah blah...it was low end for Bridgestone not for the world.

    Well written ad, nice pictures, the seller doesn't appear to be hiding anything. Agreed, he could certainly have chosen a frame a bit higher on the food chain but he did do a very nice job. And really, for the the average person who just wants a nice "vintage" bike, how much better would an MB1, 2,3,or 4 have been ?.

    Can't help it, its an affliction. Funny thing is I have a bunch of the CNC/boutique brakes in storage containers, but all my ridable bikes have Shimano or Suntour.

    Not sure what a boner is, but yes it's had a few scrapes. Like I said, the parts are what's for sale, and frame is free for local collection buyers!
