From the Bowels of CL

More disappointing posts from today's Craig's List

This is an immaculate condition 2003 Orbea Starship bike. aluminum bike with Columbus 6000 tubing with Zeus carbon fiber fork. Weighs 18 lbs. Light and responsive enough that it will have you keep up with the carbon fiber bikes. Got 3rd in a Crit race. 


10 Speed Campy Centaur components. Double on the front. (20 speeds total) 2000 miles on all components. 

Campy Vento G3 rims. (makes the bike look much sexier than normal rims.) 

Brand new Bontranger Pro rear tire. 

Any more questions, let me know. Actual pics will be taken on request. Otherwise, here's an idea. 



Hate to see it go but I really need something more practical for campus and I don't race anymore. 

Keysearch: Trek, Cannondale, Specialized, Bianchi, single speed, fixie, fixed, Scott, Lemond, carbon fiber, Madone, Surly,

Okay - this guy is trying to sell a 6-year old bike for $1,600 and can't post a picture or bother to say what size it is? Of course, it does have a new rear tire.  He's also got the team name wrong, too; it should be Euskatel/Esukadi. I suspect the poster is either selling his roommate's bike while he is away visiting his girlfriend at Stout (dude - your bike got swiped while you were gone).

Here's another gem that also ran tonight:

Very clean Centurion road bike - $325 (Uptown)

It has good tires and very good gears. It rides very smooth for a bike. Email me for any questions or information. 

Location: Uptown

it's NOT ok to contact this poster with services or other commercial interests

Sweet!! This one looks promising - it as "good tires and good gears", and best of all, it rides very smooth (for a bike, that is). No photos but again, premium pricing.

Now - off to the debates!!
