    The Official WTF 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: http://forums.mtbr.com/showthread.php?t=521682

    For those too lazy to read that much, a direct thread link to a good discussion of it is here: http://forums.mtbr.com/showthread.php?t=521682

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

    Well, I didn't really mean it to be a place TO out, but seeing as these guys get the idea on totally socially acceptable examples, I'll use them as exhibits A and B.

    It was more of a discussion area, why you're for, or against, grouse about so and so who's for it and you don't get why, whatever...

    Perhaps Obama should set up a special panel on it

    I hope the smilie indicated my light heartedness, I see folks on mtb's with 175's all the time, regardless of size. Some roadies will tell you that a 6' 2" guy needs 165's to get a "good" spin.....

    Hope Rad to the Power of Sick!

    This one expired long ago but I can't get the link to open here. Here's a copy

    BMX Bike Bicycle SuperRad Extreme 2000

    This is a max wicked sick BMX. It's a Reliance Boomerang and it's done heaps of maximum extreme stunts. I have mostly done stunts on this bike since forever. Once I did a boom gnarly stunt trick on it and a girl got pregnant just by watching my extremeness to the maxxxx.

    Some details about sickmax BMX: Comes with everything you see including:
    TOP ASS SUSPENSION REAR FORKS!!
    2 x wheels
    1 x seat
    I will even thrown my sick BMXing name for FREE - Wicked Styx.

    Has minor surface rust on handlebars and front forks (easily removed). More rust on rear forks (as shown in pics). Tyres hold air but are pretty old. Basically, it's an old BMX, but it's radness is still 100% in tact.

    Tricks I have done on this BMX:
    Endos - 234.
    Sick Wheelies - 687.
    Skids - 143,000.
    Bunny Hops - 2 (Bunny Hops are gay and my brother dared me to do them, which I did because I'm Rad to the power of Sick).
    Flipouts - 28.

    Basically if you buy this bike you will instantly become a member to every club that was ever invented, worldwide, because you will be awesome. Pick up from Richmond in Melbourne.

    Throw your hands in the air like you just don't mind.

    Q&A

    Q: Dude , thats the sickest description ive read to date . Had me and my family in stitches. If you reconsider postage for this bike im happy to pay you for your bike.
    A: Hello Radster. I suppose I could skid down to the postie and see what it would cost to post. I don't know where you live, but I might just try guessing.

    Q: dude, does this bike come with contraception because i all ready have 3 kids.
    A: Thanks Sick Guy. It doesn't come with contraception, but I will include a photo of me doing a stunt if you like. It's pretty blurry, but it's awesome.

    Q: How long are the skids that this bike can do?
    A: Dear Mad Dog. The skids odometer shows 128,992 metres, but i think it might have gone round the clock. I once did a skid that went for two weeks.

    This guy has been trying to sell this "collectors edition" for over a year. Every week, he faithfully puts up another ad, and never changes his price. I figured I'd give it some exposure here, in case any of you all want to snap this up.

    I didn't mean to imply you were hoov, more along the lines of suspecting he saw your post about to be deleted and thought he'd lend a hand by making his first post in this thread.

    Sorry you got sucked in to a deletion that started out not having anything to do with you Stan, but this thread is really about the act of, and or, ridiculously off base listings, not things folks might actually want. My apologies if that wasn't apparent.

    Spotted a bike for sale just down the street form me. I didn't want to get too close just incase I was swarmed with flood of machine gun bullets but I thought someone here may appreciate me posting it. There's gotta be somebody here looking for this gem.

    Sorry for the crap blackberry camera shot but I was scared.

    Mr.T rides an o.d. rigid surly, ain't no two-toned suspension-weenie FOOL!


    Occurs to me that I should respectfully answer MCS's post topic instead of derailling it.
    I'm in Canada, Toronto specifically, so 90% of outings won't ever faze me.
    With regards to local offerings though; I'm also a terminally bored grump who spends WAY too much time hunting for parts and therefore (as Mechagouki can attest, heehee) I can snag parts quickly and when I don't get them it's never going to be a life-epiphanous event.
    Because in the end, it's just a bicycle part, and I don't measure my happiness by whether there's a teesdale or a ccm in my basement.

    So no, I don't give a fig about outing.
    But then again, I have other things in my life to keep me happy... don't you?


    (while the local mtbr'ers are wiping their eyes, I've snagged another crate of nos deerhead and xtr!! MUAHAHAHAHAHAH! kidding!)

    Okay, just so I'm clear, outing is not something looked upon in a positive light by a majority of folks on this board. Old topic, not worth rehashing.

    This thread was to discuss it, learn about it, and perhaps out stuff that NONE WILL CARE ABOUT, ie: custom Huffys for $8000, etc, for our personal, high browed chuckling and enjoyment =

    Thanks for playing.....

    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.

    Any experience something like this: craigslist ad for a custom, handbuilt frame with breezer dropouts and other cool stuff, posted for a hundred bucks. I call on it and the guy tells me the price was just to generate interest but he actually wants 450$! I say I don't understand why he put 100$ in the add if he wants 450$ and he again says "just trying to generate some interest." What the H. E. double hockey sticks does that mean???

    BTW, turned out that he had built the frame, and rather shoddily it sounds. According to him he made the rear triangle too small so it could only fit narrow tires. Really sounds worth the 450$ . . .

    Craigslist has definitely become very competitive. Used to be you could catch things hours or days later. Now it's down to minutes and people trying to out-offer the guy before them.

    The irony is that I missed it because I was busy searching ebay for a titanium frame. There was nothing available locally but when I clicked the refresh I found it had been posted about 20 minutes. All it took to miss out on 500 smackers, but I guess that's part of the game!

    Nice looking ride, but too early for a hand job. Doesn't seem right to have an old steel Ibis without a hand job.

    It is never too early for a hand job! Maybe if you ask nicely the seller would include one?

    I think the handjob came to be in the 90s. But the early classics from the 80s were lacking that "gimmickry" in lieu of the nice seat cluster with the scalloped seat tube and the fillet brazed seat stays. To me the early customs with the Type II forks and LD stems are truly one of the classic norcal classics.

    Hmmm. What was the listing price? A Type II alone would be $450ish. If you could still get one made...

    I was actually surprised no one grabbed it. Here's the listing---started at $650 and didn't get anywhere:

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...ht_9648wt_1026


    And I agree about the "hand job." Same goes for the "Moron tubing." Just seems kinda dumb to me.

    I agree about the moron tubing, but the hand job was nicely done so I always considered it more than just a gimmick.

    I just like the way this one looks in the photo, bent fork and all. At least it is cheap, though maybe not much below market for this model...

    The only info I can provide is that you just brought them to the attention of just about every person who would likely be bidding against you. If they hadn't seen the auction yet, now they have. Not wise.

    Or its your auction, in which case you need to buy a classified.

    Considering its your first post, and the locations are both in Loveland, CO, my bet would be on the latter.

    Just Curious

    No, it's not my auction, the location sparked my interest because it is local to me, and I am just looking for info because I am intrigued by early CNC manufacturers.

    Per ECS:

    "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. "


    After re-reading MCS' initial posts, I'm assuming this thread is no longer for discussing whether or not "outing stuff" is a-ok, but rather a place to post links to ridiculous CL stuff, as pointed out by ECS. People are not supposed to post cool bikes or good deals - just funny stuff.

    But then again, I could be wrong?

    Wow, he has some REALLY nice stuff for REALLY high prices. I wonder if everyone 'Best Offers' him with a less than 50% of the BIN price and he still comes out ahead?

    And he liberally uses the word, NOS. Sometimes, that's just his own moniker for stuff that he's pulled off of bikes and the bike was clean. I think it's bad form. NOS should be just that. For example:

    Agreed. NOS=New Old Stock=new, never used or assembled preferably with original packaging. Which is very different from "removed from a lightly used "NOSish" bike. What ever "NOSish" means. That post is nowhere near NOS. Unless it stand for Not in Original Shape.

    Even if that were a Teesdale built Mt Tam, the price is way off.
    Need: McMahon brake for roller cam mounts, Mountain Goat fork.

    More than double what it is worth. Looks like it is in great shape, but that's more in 'parts bike' territory than 'holy grail' land like he thinks. I'm sure it is a nice ride though......

    That bike is right up my alley - I'm a fan of the geometry and build, and have been looking for a good deal on one around here for some time now. Too bad that guy won't get $800 for it...

    interesting, Bont is about half way through and going for a decent lick so far

    Nate, not sure if that's the link you meant to post, but yesterday I played Novelty, Ice Age, and Shadowplay for my seven year old, (he's got great taste in music for a kid )

    I'm not a member on any music forums, so my eBay excitement got channeled here

    Awesome playlist. I now appreciate what my dad was up to all those years.
    If you are into Joy Division and haven't done so already, I highly recommend tracking down the live albums (Les Bains Douches '79 and Preston '80).

    That is certainly proof that what goes around, comes around. Stunningly modern-looking bike for that era. Very, very cool, thanks Nate, never would have seen that otherwise.

    It started out with the best of intentions, explaining why it's an issue for some, and providing a singular thread to hash it out, as opposed to endless individual hijacks that caused all kinds of strife.

    It then evolved into a thread where folks could list ridiculous for sale items, and have fun making fun of them.

    Unfortunately, some folks seem to think it's for legit outing, since they don't read the whole thing, and get the vibe of it.

    This is all part of the general live and let live attitude I try to bring, not that I am without fault of course. Can't have it both ways, (lots of moderation that all agree on, coupled with a wild west mindset) sadly.....

    After reading the whole thing I thought it was rather vague as to OFFICIAL policy on outing ebay auctions.Reading the forum rules and the first paragraph of this thread I do not see how you could arrive at it being forbidden, only just not liked by some. If that is the rule then it should state it as such , not just singing around the issue talking about members feelings on the subject or stating a UNWRITTEN rule. Perhaps I am just thick...........

    Alternatively...why not just delete the thread to begin with. The existence of the thread combined with the multi faceted interpretation as to what it's meant for seems to encourage disappointment, outrage, insults, etc. So why not just delete it entirely? Unless maybe it exists to encourage those types of things?

    !!! The shop i worked at in the 90's had bought a Superbe Pro gruppo, and parted it out. The seatpost, headset, pedals, and brakes went. The derailleurs sat there in a box for *years*. No one wanted them. Everyone had to have Dura Ace STI. I think we ended up putting the rear der. on a messengers bike and charged him ~$40 for it. The only reason he wanted anything to do with it was the sealed bearing pulleys. ("Sealed bearings" was secret code for "magical" at the time.)

    Had I known anyone would pay that much for one in the future ...

    For $10 a pop, it should include the original product inside the buckets.
