this bike is amazing...
it is a barknuckle electric blue frame and fork with chris king nothreadset,Thompson stem, sugino 48 cranks, dimension pedals, san marco seat, generic post, white painted generic rizer bar, pink oury grips, navy top tube pad, phil wood chrome hubset, velocity white rims...this setup is sick...I have been the only owner and have only had it since june, it is in near perfect condition.
I am asking $1200...lowered the price from $1350
Yes, this bike sounds totally and completely "amazing" and "sick," though it's tough to verify that from the photo. Did you take it through a sheet of scratched plexiglas with your camera phone while lying on the floor? I suppose the fact that the crank's on the wrong side of the bike is pretty "amazing," and I guess you could also consider it "sick" since the bike is essentially suffering from a birth defect. At first I thought the $1,200 price tag was a little high, but then I noticed it was lowered from $1,350 so I better act now before you cut the price again. When I think of "amazing" and "sick" components I definitely think of Dimension pedals, a generic post, and generic riser bars. Oh, sorry, forgot the Phil Wood hubs, which provide an attachment point for spokes, cogs and axles like no other hub possibly could and also shave precious seconds off track stands. I would debate the validity of your claim that this is in "near perfect condition," though, since with the fixed-gear freestyler setup you've ruined what might potentially have been a perfectly good track bike.
18" custom singlespeed, built brand new - $220 [original URL: http://newyork.craigslist.org

Except for the fork and wheelset, pretty much all the parts are brand new, right down to the front and rear brake cable hangers. Having said that, the fork is a butted GT cromoly, and the wheelset is hand-built with Mavic 220 rims, Shimano Deore LX hubs, and DOUBLE-BUTTED Wheelsmith spokes. The frame is made of double-butted 7005 aluminum by Intercycle of Quebec, Canada, and is brand new. Gearing is 42t front and 15t rear, perfect for NYC riding: low enough to take any bridges or hills, but not too slow on the flats. I just did Tour de Bronx with it.
Brand new parts:
18" Intercycle 7005 alu MTB frame, burnt orange / cobalt blue
Bontrager 90mm threadless stem
Tange Japan threadless headset w/ Shimano fully sealed cartridge bearings
Nashbar sealed cartridge bottom bracket 68x113
Nashbar seat collar
Kalloy 27.2 post
Shimano M340 cranks w/ 42t ring
Sette singlespeed spacers & 15t cog
Sampson Fat Wrap bar tape
Nashbar 1.25" slicks
KMC 7/8spd chain
Trek alloy bottle cage
Used parts: Tektro canti brakes, Wellgo pedals, Selle Italia Flite saddle, 39cm bar, and Weinmann non-aero levers.
$220 for the bike only. Extras shown in pic (second bottle cage with Minoura mount on fork, orca bell, sadde bag) are not part of the deal. Thanks for looking.
With its surgical cap seat cover, ample fluids, and killer whale noisemaker, this bike looks like a jovial Patch Adams-type doctor making the rounds and entertaining patients in a children's hospital ward. My biggest complaint here is that the modest $220 price tag doesn't include the fork-mounted cage, since if you're the kind of person who wears a wrist wallet that's probably an accessory you'd want. In a nod to current fashion I also note the owner has left the very ends of the bars untaped, so while it's not a full-on dog erection tape job it does at least evoke a canine in a mild state of arousal. I rate this one a strong "buy" for the entertainment value alone.

Bike: Gray Bianchi PISTA
Size: 57 CM
Specs: Nitto Bull Horn handle bars, Oury Grips, Sugino 75 Crank, MKS Pedals, IZUMI Chain, Italia gel flow seat, EAI Cog, Mavic CXP22 front wheel, Bianchi front Hub, Velocity Deep V rear wheel, Formula rear Hub, Vittoria tires.
Condition: very good condition, minimal scratches, rides excellent
It wouldn't be a trip to Craigslist Hell if I didn't encounter a Pista being sold for at or above full MSRP, and I certainly wasn't disappointed this time. Sure, you could get a brand-new Pista for $600, but then you'd have to go through all the trouble of ruining it yourself. Fixedgeargallery entries and Craigslist ads read like mantras now, and this entry too joins in the chant: OurySuginoMKSIzumiVelocity...OurySuginoMKSIzumiVelocity.... What aspiring fixed-gear freestyler can't rattle these words off in his or her sleep? As for my own sleep, it is now plagued by nightmares of hordes of undead roaming the streets of Brooklyn on bicycles, mumbling these words as they eat the geared drivetrains of the living.

Turn any Dinglespeed into a BLINGLESPEED!
Chris King wheelset 26er, GOLD King wheels, REAR has just been rebuilt with Mavic 819 tubless, Black butted spokes. Frt is unknown rim (I think a velocity) with stan's liner. Comes with IRC Serac UST tires, XT cassette. Put some serious BLING into you rig without alot of $$ even run it singlespeed with spacers
I also have some Easton Monkey lite sl's low rise with Syntace 120 6rise super light weight stem w/ti bolt kit 140.00 for both.
other parts as well please see my other ads from moots parting out.
Selling to fund my new titanium soft tail 29er singlespeed (blinglespeed) project
I would ride with a Burberry top-tube pad ebroidered with the phrase "BSNYC is a Fixster Doofus" on every one of my bikes for a year to have the word "bling" permanenty banished from cycling. Certainly our little subculture is not well-insulated against stupid trends from the outside world, but this is one I think we can all make a collective effort to screen out. This guy has been listing these same wheels for weeks now, and he employs a favorite tactic of the desperate CLer: appealing to people's altruism by explaining how he needs the money to fund another project. Sorry, but the last thing I need to run across on my next MTB ride is another guy on an overpriced dual-suspended titanium La-Z-Boy bouncing around the woods like an overgrown hairy-legged kid on a hop ball. Maybe he'd already have enough money if he hadn't spent it on stupid things like ti bolt kits. The kinds of people who use ti bolt kits on mountain bikes are the same ones who buy Harley Davidson-edition Ford F-150s with skull-head ball hitches, and I don't want to help fund that kind of misguided extravagance.

im looking for someone to pwdercoat my frame for me, please point me in the direction of somebody good! any help is a huge help!
An important part of the fixed-gear mania is spending good money to powdercoat a crappy frame. Not saying that's the case here, but nonetheless I'd like to institute a rule that in order to qualify for custom painting or powdercoating your frame must be worth at least three times the cost of the job. In any event, trolling for a powdercoater on Craigslist is like living in California and traveling to Cleveland to surf. There are innumerable cycling websites and forums where you can get that kind of advice. Why seek it from people who promulgate misspellings like "break" and "peddle" and whose idea of Campy Record is the soundtrack to "Pink Flamingos?"
