Worst of NYC Craigslist Bike Ads #3 and #4

This first one's not about the bike. It's the approach I can't get past. The second one is just all bad.

AWESOME BIANCHI BIKE - $300 (Original URL: http://newyork.craigslist.org/brk/bik/359639365.html)

A bike is a lot like a car except it has only two wheels, no extra passengers, no stereo, no exhaust system, no parking tickets, no moving it every morning so you don’t get parking tickets, no insurance, no expense in money or time to pump dead dinosaur liquid that props up corrupt Middle-Eastern autocracies and their Western petro-chemical partners in grime, no digging it out in winter, no accumulation of fat on your ass and stomach from sitting in it, and no sneers from investment bankers who have nicer cars. Also, it is nothing like a car.

Awesome bike. Vintage high performance. Bianchi brand. Super light. Rides like a cream-dream. Seriously nice bike. Not ridden for a while, but in great shape. Tires need air, but otherwise good to go. Buy it. Ride it. Feel the wind in your hair. Be free again. See the city at a different speed, while simultaneously putting your foot up the ass of the automotive industry. Pretend you’re a bike messenger. Everyone thinks they’re sexy. $300 or best offer

Selling a bike is one thing. Trying to sell someone on the entire concept of cycling in order to sell your bike is another. That's just creating way too much work for yourself. I suspect this guy is more hopeful that someone will find him charming and email him for a date than he is hopeful that someone will buy his bike. Which is fine. But that's what the personals are for.

Vintage Haro - totally rad. - $100 (Original URL: http://newyork.craigslist.org/brk/bik/360243003.html)


Reply to: [deleted]: 2007-06-25, 8:00PM EDTA super cool Vintage Haro. Mostly original. Missing back wheel. (really easy to replace) 45" adapter chain ring. Could use a bath and possibly removal of some angsty stickers (3). Must pick up in Red Hook. $100 firm.

OK, next time you go back home to Ohio and visit your parents, try to dig that rear wheel up. You might just find someone dumb enough to buy this thing. (By the way, I used to ride BMX and actually owned a Haro in the 80s. I don't remember them ever being this ugly. Rebadged Huffy? I'll defer to the BMXperts out there.)

Rob in Queens,

I agree celeste is nice. It's a shame Bianchi, who have been making some cool bikes lately, have strayed so far from the all-celeste frames.

I love the "tires need air" qualifications in CL posts. So, you're trying to sell me something for $300 and you don't have the time to find a pump so that I might actually ride it before buying?

Ben istanbuldan selda 22 yaşında konfeksiyon içşisiyim Amatör Porno sizleri bekletmeden hemen hikayeme geçiyorum.. Biz 5 katlı bir binanın en üst katında yaşıyorduk ve bir öğlen paydosunda sevgilim beni Anal Sikiş aradı evdeydim çünkü evle iş yerim arasında 2 dakika bile yoktu.. Bende Asyalı Porno sevgilime benden telefon beklemesini söyledikten sonra evin durumuna baktım evde kardeşlerim ve annemin Esmer Porno birkaçtane arkadaşı vardı bu iş imkansızdı tekrardan düşündüm ve çatı katı aklıma geldi sevgilime telefon açıp çatıya çıkmasını ve Fantazi Porno beni beklemesini söyledikten sonra telefonu bir süre elime almadım anneme işe gidiyorum dedikten sonra Gay Porno hemen üst kata çatıya çıkıp sevgilimin
dudaklarına yumuldum az bir süremiz Götten Sikiş vardı ve çok istiyordum onu hemen önünde diz çöküp sikini çıkardım kocaman olmuştu bile... Özlemişti beni HD Porno bitanem başladım sikini yalamaya kafasını öpüyor onu çıldırtıyordum sevgilim saçlarımdan tutmuş ağzımı keyifle sikerken çatı katının kapısı açıldı toparlanamadan Lezbiyen Porno komşunun şişman oğlu efecan gelmişti ben dizlerimin üzerinde sevgilimin Liseli Porno siki ağzımda yakalanmıştım hemen bu halimizi gören komşu oğlu Sarışın Sikiş kaçarcasına gitti.. Sevgilim bir süre güldükten Türbanlı Porno sonra bu şişko neden kaçtı korktu herhalde onu sikicem sandı galiba dedikten sonra bir kahkaha daha attı ben sevgilimin Türk Porno sikine deli gibi saldırıyor yalıyor emiyordum boşalmasını istiyor Zenci Porno sütünü içmek istiyordum sevgilim ağzımı sike sike boşaldı hepsini yuttum bir damlasını ziyan Porno etmedim ve sevgilimle vedalaşıp ayrıldık... Ben her defasında sikiş yapmadan önce yazporno diye olan türkçe siteden Porno izle bölümüne girip seyrediyorum azdıktan sonra şahane sikiş ile gözleri kamaştırıyorum.
