Worst of NYC Craigslist Bike Ads #52-#56: Alpaca Lips Now!

(Alpaca Lips)


As usual, I spent this past weekend in my metaphorical crow's nest, scanning the horizon for the arrival of The End. And sure enough, a mast appeared. I removed my Cone of Smugness and peered into my Spyglass of Vigilance, only to see a ship so laden with Apocaliciousness that most of its hull was below the surface of the water.

Yes, that's right: Monster Track 2008 has been cancelled. If you don't know what Monster Track is, it's apparently the Lollapalooza of alleycats. The organizers have issued the following press release:

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

The organizers of Monster Track 2008 have decided, after careful consideration, to cancel this year’s main race. This decision did not come easy and was debated at length. Our reasons are many but the overall factor was that the race has become unmanageable due to the large participation and our concern for the participant’s safety.

As many of you know, Monster Track started as a race held for a small, close group of NYC bike messengers. It has now become an overwhelmingly all-inclusive event. This, on its face, may seem like a positive direction for a race but in the context of a solely track bike alleycat it brings many problems. First and foremost, the safety of the racers is compromised. We believe that this is not a tenable position for race organizers.

Although the main race is canceled, please join us for Gold Sprints on Friday evening, Fixed Gear Competition (track stands, skids, footdown, freestyle, sprints, etc.) on Saturday and the Velo City Tour, at Kissena Velodrome on Sunday.


This cancellation was almost certainly motivated at least in part by the recent alleycat death in Chicago. Indeed, alleycat racing is surely the slam-dancing of the bike world, and it is now well into the "moshing" phase, thanks to the overwhelming all-inclusiveness referred to above combined with the unprecedented popularity of riding brakeless track bikes on the street. Right now, if alleycat racing were a concert, it would be Woodstock '99 and Limp Bizkit would have just taken the stage.

If you still have any doubt, just read this article in yesterday's New York Times. If you're unfamiliar with the Times, it's sort of an obituary for subcultures, in that once yours appears there then it's already dead. And apparently, nobody alerted the reporter to the fact that Monster Track had already been cancelled before the article ran. But alleycat organizer Mike Dee did thave this to say:

Originally only bike messengers and their girlfriends came. Now it’s regular people on their bikes saying: “I want to do that, too. That looks fun.” It’s a cultural phenomenon for young post-college kids getting these yuppie jobs that don’t pay them any money, figuring they’re going to be paying off student loans the rest of their natural lives, or who can’t get a job anywhere but a coffee shop with their art degrees. They’re like, “I’ll just get this track bike and stick a U-lock in my back pocket and ride around.”

Surely, now that these trendy scavenger hunts have left the CBGBs and 9:30 Clubs of the cycling world, are being embraced by frat boys, and are becoming unmanageable mob rides in the same way that moshing became a form of date rape with live musical accompaniment, then we must be able smell the fetid breath of the Alpaca, right?

Well, let's see what's happening on Craigslist:

Bianchi Pista 2001 size 53cm. use this bike for the past few years and its still in great condition. it has some paint chips but still looks fine. there are 3 minor scratches on the top tube as seen in picture below. doesn't effect the bike what so ever. most part are original except stem and handlebar. asking for 600 or best offer.

If interested please email me at [deleted]



And here's a seven year-old Pista for $600. Together this brace of Pista posts puts the NYC PistaDex at a stratospheric $625. Surely we're not facing the End of Days yet.

Or are we? Aren't all busts preceded by a boom? Perhaps we need to look beyond the PistaDex:

yours 3000cu. in.even freakin bigger

my bag is in great shape , i havent used it in a long time , great size for all your smelly shits.

I need something to cart packages to the post office , my bag is too small for the volume i deal with blah blah blah


Blah, blah, blah. I'm not sure what kind of bulk mailing operation this guy is running, but based on his reference to carrying "smelly shits" it seems that he's mailing large quantities of either marijuana or feces. Frankly I think he'd be better off with one of those folding carts people take to the supermarket, and I think we'd be better off without people like him. So if the Apocalypse is indeed coming, let's hope it dispatches with him faster than a messenger unloads his last package on Friday evening.

Rode 2 laps around the park. Geometry not working for me.

$1750 for the whole thing... Paid 2000 + sales tax yesterday… OR $750 for the Cinelli Vigorelli frame which includes the fork & headset ($1090 MSRP-http://www.cinelli-usa.com/) and I'll leave on the bottom bracket - an additional $35 value. Velocity Aero Black Rims, Omas Hubs, Cinelli Post, Italia Gel Seat… Direct Contact: [deleted]




Geometry not working for you on your rides around the park, eh? Maybe you shouldn't have bought a freaking track bike then! It's not supposed to work for that kind of riding, idiot. Hopefully at least you're coming to grips with the fact that you should have bought the hybrid the guy at the shop told you would be appropriate for the type of riding you do. Surely right now the Apocalyptic Alpaca is breathing fire from his nostrils, as no deity could possibly resist the urge to smite someone like this.

Land Shark Track Frame and fork with campy headset, 54 - $650 [original URL: http://newyork.craigslist.org/brk/bik/593157515.html]
Reply to: [deleted]

Yo! So I built this bike, but got a Croll track bike built up for racing and don't want this one anymore. I want a Land Shark road bike. So anyways, here is the bike specs from what i measured, got the frame from the original owner, but they didn't know the exact specs, you get the top tube pad too:

all measurements (c-c):

top tube - 54
seat tube - 53, it is more like a 52 (too short for me)
fillet brazed lugs

Cool, so basically I payed 700+shipping for the frame and fork, which was too much to pay, so I am trying to sell it for 600, but i put a new old stock headset on there so that is why it is 650. The bike is short, too short for me in fact.

e-mail me your number and I'll call you back today. It's nice out, so a great chance to come take a look.

Ok, that is it, nothing else is for sale, please don't ask, but if you buy the frame, you can talk to me about buying the other stuff...if you buy the frame.

It's really an amazing bike. Ok bye! Oh, one last thing. Please don't waste my time. If you are coming to look at it, I would expect you have got the cash and know what you are looking at and just want to confirm the quality of the frame. I'll deliver the bike to you for free.



Yo, the only thing uglier than a Land Shark is a Land Shark with a top tube pad on it. And surely there's no human alive who could possibly look at that bicycle without protective eyewear. Cool, so that means if someone actually does show up it could only be the Apocalyptic Alpaca, who will undoubtedly burn both you and your bicycle to embers with his Flamethrowing Snout of Death. In a fight between a Land Shark and an Apocalyptic Alpaca, I'll take the latter every time.


PINARELLO VINTAGE ROAD BIKE italian fixie fixed campy campagnolo rare - $1100 [original URL: http://newyork.craigslist.org/mnh/bik/591908990.html]
Reply to: [deleted]
Date: 2008-03-01, 5:09AM EST


Vintage Pinarello road bike. The frame is a top tube 54, from center to center, and a seat tube 54, from center to center. Bike is Columbus steel, and has campy dropouts. The cranks are Omega standard double, and in great vintage shape. Suntour front dérailleur, an old school sew up rear wheel, and a mavic front wheel. The bike is set up for drop tube shifters, although you can modify it to index if you prefer. Rear cassette is six speed. Serial number is R-371, which means this bike was low production.

While this bike is in functioning condition and has great ride quality, it needs a drive train with better parts, as well as new wheels to be in top/restored condition.

The frame is the beauty of this setup. It is rare and hard to find, and structurally, it is perfect. It has some scratches, and NO dings.

If you are looking for a vintage bike, or a project, this bike is as special as anything you are probably going to find. Made in Italy, and looks vintage.

PAYMENT: I will take $1100 or my highest offer. I live in California, and this bike is listed in both Los Angeles area, as well as Sacramento. I will package it for free, and ship it for $50, which is very reasonable. If you would like to pay Paypal for security reasons, I will accept, given you pay the 3% fee. I will take a personal check, but you must wait for checks to clear in my account before I ship. In a world of bullsh*t scammers, I can assure you I am honest, and lets talk on the phone and exchange addresses to prove it.

I do have a total of 12 pics available. Email if you want more.

If you are interested, email me and leave a name and phone number.



Do things in New York City look so bad to the rest of the world that they're attempting to sell us their overpriced vintage castaways from the outside? Apparently the answer is yes. Please keep your "italian fixie fixed campy campagnolo rare" bike and your "Omega" cranks and your "drop tube shifters" and your accute accent over the "e" in "derailleur" and let us at least meet our end with dignity. And don't worry, your own will come soon enough. So keep that Pinarello, you might need it.

A "yuppie job that pays no money"?

Huh? Either I've misunderstood the meaning of "yuppie" all these years or things in the NYC economy are much worse than we've heard out here in the sticks.

I think he means the kind of job that you get the first year or so out of school when you spend your senior year doing bong hits and going to Cozumel instead of hitting the career center and going to resume classes.

Or you majored in art.

And a yuppie job is the kind of job that pays bux delux for doing essentially nothing; examples being investment banker, lawyer, or congressman.

Are you referencing the 9:30 club in DC? Was it cool back when dischord was around? I could see that being true.

I can't see the land shark in the photo. That Cinelli is a tribute to ugliness. Like Lance and his old-man socks, I'm counting the days till we see the end of shot-peened black components on shiny frames. I almost wish ano was back, and not just CK headsets and Velocity rims. Unfortunately, I think I see the future and it is still black, albeit wet: http://tinyurl.com/37d8bt

Pol Pot said...

I love the line: "The cranks are Omega standard double, and in great vintage shape." Which I guess is code for "beat up and old."

spokey said...

The 9:30 club was cool to say you had been to, to hang around outside of, to sit in the hallway of until the opening band would come in at 11:30, but awful for a show. The pit had a concrete column in the middle, with a cameraman in a crows nest. The stage was only three feet high, so if you ended up up front you had bruises on your thighs for a week. The ceiling was low enough and the ventilation bad enough that sweat dripped from the ceiling. I did have the pleasure of being looked down upon disdainfully by Ian MacKay as I threw up in the urinal in the basement during the Special Beat show about 20 years ago. Ah, those were the days...

I sold my track bike because of the wrong geometry, I bought a leather Ikea barcalouger with the money and find it far more comfortable, plus, I don't have to pedal.

bike snob, ever since I read your post this morning and contemplated the fact that I might be able to provide that Cinelli frame with a more loving and fitting home.

Just Kidding.

How is it that the owner of the 7 year old Pista let it get scratches in the top tube? Isn't that why the protectors so beloved of BikeSnob were invented? For shame.

I like the fact that someone wants $1100 for a worn-out Pinarello with a (whee!) 6-speed cassette. Maybe Miguel Indurain should check his garage to see if everything's there. New York: Home of Chutzpah!

John Slawta's fillets are top notch and his paint is out of this world. Plus he'll get a custom frame out to a customer in less than two months. While his paint may be too LOUD for the Bike Snob anyone with a healthy dose of psychedelics will surely enjoy his frames. Don't believe me? Just eat a some high quality blotter and wander over to the Bicyle Station.

First, the cat killed at the Tour da Chicago wasn't riding a track bike. He had gears, he had brakes. He also had bad judgment. That's what kills and hurts folks. But yes, the sooner the indie kids' love of all things track ends, the better. Races will be smaller (and messengers will outnumber civilians again), will be off the radar, and Tom and Tina Hipster will be popping pups out in the hills and woods of suburbia. Bonus, you'll be able to get killer deals on their old track stuff as soon as they lose interest. The same reason I started riding the damn things in the first place.

Matt in Seattle said...

Ok, a couple of things;

First, John Slawta of Landshark not only has a great last name, but he builds and paints over 200 bikes every year for over 20 years and is the only frame builder in America to have been under an American winning the Giro. The guy has put out as many amazing paint jobs as ugly ones (all paint is at the direction of the buyer).

Second, about the ABC thing about alleycats, the guy in the glasses had a 15 minute interview cut into 30 seconds of sound bites and put up against another guy who is the "good cyclist". Do any of you think someone would make those comments and only those comments? The station was looking for a sensational story of out of control cyclists and they manufactured it, they interviewed that guy under the guise of a balanced story and they fu@ked him for it. That's what they do.

Third, here's my favorite messenger joke:

What did the messenger say when he ran out of pot?

This job fu@king sucks.

My mind has been permanently damaged trying to figure out if this reveals the bowels of the fixie frenzy or perhaps a very cunning dilution of the fixed army?

“For some reason, companies don’t want to sponsor underground illegal bicycle races through the streets.”
Given the dramas in the pro ranks and such I cannot think of one sane reason why any cash strapped LBS/ local business etc would want to sponsor this , unless it was personal hygiene related business. Perhaps Colgate Palmolive.

Maybe the UCI could start a drug testing regime there to perfect their techniques given that they would likely encounter every potential drug available

Also bad judgment does not kill, it is the rapid deceleration that will do it every time

And you, Mr. Cycle Smithys: I've been in your shop a few times. You guys are Lycra twats of the worst kind. Condescending, idle wieners all. I am sure you are losing sales to the fixie set, hence your mock concern for the well being of Chicago cyclists and their circumvention of your overpriced lair of carbon fiber wankery. Eat some shit too!

wipeout,

maybe you should actually read this site for awhile before blowing in here and making a complete ass of yourself. It is certainly the first time you've ever logged in under "wipeout" and laying the lumber and name calling with nothing to back it up says a lot more about you than your targets. "nyah nyah you're a d-bag!?" them's fighting words... if you're in the 5th grade.

hmm...unsupported arguements, no facts, childish namecalling; looks like you're ready to retire that nom de plume. i'm sure the guys down at the shop are sorry to see your kind go (high fives all-around!)

Cycle Smithy is a fine shop. They have an old bearded man who works silently in the basement and reminds me of Sheldon Brown... They haven't ever been condescending to me, and as a woman, that can happen to you in a bike shop sometimes. Plus they have walls and ceilings full of vintage bikes that aren't carbon crap that half the shops around wouldn't even begin to know how to work on. (as in the hip neighborhood shop that forced a standard bottom bracket into a Gitane that said made in France on it. Brilliant.) Anyways... if the fixie freestylers had any money, maybe Cycle Smithy would worry about missing out on their buisness.

Also, Bike Snob, you're usually not wrong about much, but there is one man who could face that Land Shark with naked eyes and his name is Mario Cipollini.

So my other job is at a coffee shop, but its hooked onto a jankey bike shop, which is kinda nice and I read on a couch the whole time, I'm payed to hang out alone at a coffee shop and listen to music. Its a nice f***off job. Though I feel belittled

And where do hipsters come into play in all of this?! I see more hipsters taking off their brakes on their bikes everyday then I do yuppies. If it wasn't for a nieve hipster and his new sh*tty ugly "brass knuckle" track bike I wouldn't have been knocked into a parked tow truck and had my chin split open to the jaw bone. 839$ in med bills later and I'd rather ride alone then with a kid who is into riding brakeless because "cool messanger kids do it"

I can't wait to see when this moshing advances on to the hardcore kung fu style, picking up change and pizza tossing mosh. Then after that?! Bikes with hair in their faces and bright colored beads??

Ill watch from a distance...

Anon 10:40 PM: No, wrong, I have posted under this moniker before, so maybe you should get your facts straight. I have read BSNYC daily since late last summer, so as to "blowing in here and making a complete ass..." of myself that's not really accurate. I have in fact posted under this moniker before, so again, it is your facts that are wrong. That there is no verifiable demonstration that refutes of my claim of readership should give you pause to make the silly assertion that I am not well versed in this particular forum.

If I have made an ass of myself so be it. You took the bait and to my mind seem to be a bigger ass, as the comment section of this blog is traditionally ripe with witticism, half-witticism, and weirdness - my "eat shit" comments themselves were cribbed from a recent thread wherein the particular tag-line was mutated and overused to ironic effect- but especially ridiculous is being called to task for my relatively anonymous approach, as your own post is as "Anonymous" as is possible, if you get my drift. So maybe it is time for me to get an account on Blogger.com, using Wipeout of course, if it is available.

If you really can say there is any merit to the arguments of the Oakley guy's position, in the context of alleycats, I would love to hear you twist it out. The very essence of the alleycat has been that of dodging traffic and the law, and Oakley posits that since some unfortunate warrior lost the ultimate race, so to speak, that laws should now be changed to condone behavior that is distinctly outside the law. I ride in nyc and respect and advocate for biker's rights, provided they operate within the law. I am barely critical of the notion of impromptu racing in the streets, and have my scofflaw tendencies, but c'mon, if you want to play you have to pay. If I blow a red and get creamed, it's my fault. how could it be any other way?

To the "Anon" woman who had a good experience at Smithy's: glad to hear it, and I don't doubt you for a moment. Smithy's is located in a particularly stuffy portion of Chicago's Lincoln park, and to my experience, seems to a little heavy on the form and a little light on the function. Sort of an R&A of Chicago, coincidentally perched in a neighborhood with a similar demographic to Park Slope's (venerable?) carbon superstore. The old-tyme goodies in Smithy's store are an interesting trope of sorts; a hackneyed feel-good theme hiding the 5K racing bikes. Just not my style, I guess.

Yes my post was too vitriolic, and intentionally stupid, so I will try harder next time.

So, yeah, Anon 12:02 AM, I am up for alpacaliscious seconds?

And thanks Bike Snob for the best thing about bikes on the web.

Commiecanuk:

In my past life as Wipeout I might have taken insult at your undoubtedly good natured ribbing (it is good natured, isn't it?), then without hesitation, and by way of some hyper-verbal prattle, offered to rearrange your face for free. But now, reborn in both spirit and intent as Alpacanonymous, I am gentle and kind. Having seen the emptiness of my former path, I seek only peace - and groovy 'shroom rides in the park at dusk where no one has a bad trip.

Thanks all, for stepping up with the messenger jokes. I love this place!

And that includes the recycled ones.

Seriously, Commie et al: complaining that a "screwing in a lightbulb" type joke isn't original? That's like an annoying praux roadie telling you not to ride because your tires don't match.

Wipeout:

fyi, Lincoln Park used to actually be a shitty neighborhood and Cycle Smithy's has been there for a long time. So for you to say that they're in a "particularly stuffy" part of Lincoln Park like they planned it is kind of like saying Marcus of Yojimbo's MEANT to be surrounded by the condo crap that is quickly going up around his shop. (His shop, which is a great shop and he does awesome work, is in what was once Cabrini Green)

Really, come on... Cycle Smithy's is not Kozy's or Village or some other awful all Trek selling chain. They know what they're doing and know how to work on bikes.

I've only gone there occasionally but I get the impression that their mechanics have worked on enough bikes to know a French threaded bottom bracket from a BSC. I would much rather take a bike there than some shop manned by fixie riding hipsters who aren't experienced enough with other kinds of bikes.

I was visiting NYC from Vancouver, BC with my GF last weekend. I felt the need to immerse myself in the 'scene' over there with an obligatory visit to Trackstar. It was during this visit that I saw that very Cinelli bike being wobbled out the door and down the street by it's new proud owner. When we rounded the next corner on our way to the subway we witnessed the owner cramming it into the passenger seat/back seat of an Audi TT. He couldn't get it in so he had to drop the soft top and cram it in from above before he could get both the roof and passenger door closed. It was no surprise to see it posted here when we got back to Vancouver.
Kickit.

Here's a Pista going for a hundred bucks in Phoenix.

It's sad that the guy in chicago died. I must add that his friend is as dumb as they come. The race is illegal, and when you knowingly pedal thru red lights, you take a very big risk. Unfortunately, eventually someone pays the price. When they do, don't get mad at the law abiding driver who is coming home from work assuming he or she won't have to veer at of the way of a cyclist in an intersection.

Thats a good one big bad washed up nyc guy. Remember when you tried to break your mothers wrist on mothers day because she wouldn't get you any more beer. I remember how you would pack her stuff up in a bag and catch the bus to the pawn shop. Later that day you would be passed out on warm Miller High Life and Klonopin with piss all over yourself. You are a great fellow to have in the family I guess since you alienated everyone who cares about you for a bottle of yellow pills and warm beer you have lots more time on your hands to post bullshit on this fag bike site. I havent seen you in ten years get over it loser. Your dog died, darcy left you, you smell like piss. I don't understand how nice people die every day and your black tumor of a life is still happening. How long does it take before people realize your a fake bag of shit? Maybe you wouldn't have so much anxiety if you looked in the mirror the and remembered all the good times for once.

When you're ready to Sell Your Junk car, there are a number of ways you can go about it.



First and most obviously, you could trade it in at your local car dealer, but we all know how that goes. The more you get for your trade in, the less you will get off the sticker price of the car. And these days, not a lot of us are in the market for a new car anyway, so this option may not even suit your particular needs.



Second, you could always try to sell the car yourself. However, that requires a great deal of patience, false leads, people who call and never show up, and of course, you're faced with the cheapskates who want your car for next to nothing. When you consider all the time you will spend on selling your junk car yourself and then divide it by the hours you've spent, chances are you are making very little per hour off the deal.



Third, there is always the scrap option. That's easy but these days with the price of steel so low, you're not likely to make much money scrapping your car.


The fourth -- and we feel "best" option -- is to give us a call. We're a family owned and operated company who understands the hassles of trying to sell your junk car, and what we do best is eliminate the hassles for you. We'll ask for basic information to get an idea of your car's condition and value and then figure out the best price we can offer you. Once you accept our offer, we'll pick up the car for free (we don't add additional towing charges -- this can make a big difference in the final price when you try to sell your car) and pay you cash on the spot. It's that simple. You'll spend a few minutes on the phone with us, and we do the rest!

In 1989, college student Brian Scudamore encountered a tight summer job market in his hometown of Vancouver, Canada. So, after seeing an old, junk-hauling truck rumbling along a McDonald’s drive-thru, he was inspired to start his own business. He named his junk removal service “The Rubbish Boys” and used the slogan: “We’ll Stash Your Trash in a Flash!” What began as a means to pay for college quickly turned into a unique business - a franchise of professional junk removal.

Brian changed the company name to 1-800-GOT-JUNK?, invested in more trucks, hired great people, and set a goal to build a brand that would become a household name. Since 1998, the company has grown to approximately 200 locations across three countries.

1-800-GOT-JUNK? makes the ordinary business of junk removal exceptional. We create space and peace of mind when junk gets in the way. Whether it’s an unwanted sofa, a pile of household junk in the garage, or a warehouse full of unused office furnishings, 1-800-GOT-JUNK? removes it for you. In keeping with our environmental goals to divert items from the landfill, wherever possible, we will donate items to charity and recycle.

He named his junk removal service “The Rubbish Boys” and used the slogan: “We’ll Stash Your Trash in a Flash!” What began as a means to pay for college quickly turned into a unique business - a franchise of professional junk removal.

Brian changed the company name to 1-800-GOT-JUNK?, invested in more trucks, hired great people, and set a goal to build a brand that would become a household name. Since 1998, the company has grown to approximately 200 locations across three countries.

1-800-GOT-JUNK? makes the ordinary business of junk removal exceptional. We create space and peace of mind when junk gets in the way. Whether it’s an unwanted sofa, a pile of household junk in the garage, or a warehouse full of unused office furnishings, 1-800-GOT-JUNK? removes it for you. In keeping with our environmental goals to divert items from the landfill, wherever possible, we will donate items to charity and recycle.
