Worst of NYC Craigslist Bike Ads: Spikes and Troughs

First of all, those 3TTT Pista bars I mentioned yesterday are still available according to the latest ad. I know it's human nature to hesitate when something seems too good to be true, but as the seller points out these things are going to be collector's items. And, once again, they're aluminum. I can't stress that enough. Do you think Ronco founder and inventor of the Chop-O-Matic Ron Popeil got rich by being slack-jawed and immobile in the face of opportunity? No, he got rich by inventing wacky household appliances nobody needs. So what does this have to do with buying these handlebars? Very little, but I felt it was worth mentioning.

Moving on, there are some noteworthy things happening in the world of used fixed-gears in New York City right now. Much like the larger economy, there's currently disparity in the fixedconomy. On one hand, the PistaDex is at 575. So if we were to imagine it as a fruit, it would be a big, juicy, overripe melon that's almost too soft to be appetizing. On the other hand, the IRODex, which I just made up this morning, is at a mere 325. Sticking with the fruit metaphor, we're essentially looking at a dried date or something, which, while not quite as mouth-watering as fresh fruit, does stay edible longer and is a better choice for the long term in adverse conditions, which is why bedouins eat them. Let's see what's going on out there:

So you bought a bicycle in the wrong size and realized it two days later? I've really got to wonder what the circumstances were here. Certainly I could understand someone spending a few months with a bicycle and then, with time and experience, learning that another size might work better for them. But if the poor fit is already apparent two days later the bicycle must be really ill-fitting and must have been purchased under duress. This person had to have a Pista and had to have it right then. Perhaps a "bike culture" party was taking place to which it would have been bad form not to arrive on a track bike. Or perhaps it was merely a prop used to interest a potential mate. Or perhaps some unscrupulous shop is doing its best to cram Pistas into crotches in which they don't fit in anticipation of the Apocalype. Whatever the reason, it's troubling.

61-centimeter, track bike for riders on a budget, juniors, or as a fixed gear training bike; the geometry is correct for banked tracks with the tight 28mm fork offset, higher bb and short wheelbase. The bike that started it all, from the company that started it all. Gang Green paint with classic white panel decals.

Ridden less than 60 miles (persistent knee injury prevented use).

Call Joel, 917-[deleted], cell; 212-[deleted], daytime work.


Speaking of ill-fitting, this thing looks like a Bike Friday. I'm sorry to hear about Joel's knee problems, but is it possible they were caused by riding the wrong sized bike? Doubtless Lennard Zinn would have an opinion, and I'm sure he would love to take a tape measure to this guy's femur and fabricate him something better-suited to his freakish biomechanics. I wonder if this guy's also walking around in tiny shoes with his toes sticking out of the front and a sport jacket with sleeves that barely go past his elbow.


Bianchi Pista for Sale - $500 (Park Slope) [original URL: http://newyork.craigslist.org/brk/bik/699945922.html]

I have a 2007 Bianchi Pista in cool Racing Green for sale. The bike is 55cm and would fit someone 5'9" - 6'0" probably. It's in perfect condition and super fast. I've also upgraded the tires to resist the glass-strewn brooklyn streets.

I've ridden it as a fixed gear with a 48/17 gear ratio, however it has a flip-flop hub so you can put a freewheel on the other side.

I also put a Cane Creek hand break on it for safety mostly.

The asking price is $500.

Please send an email if you're interested along with a telephone number.

Thanks.




I hate the term "old school," but I have to say that this is a classic, "old school" Pista ad. It's got everything. Most importanly, it's got the kitchen shot. (Bonus points for the fact that there are not only dishes in the dish rack, but one of them actually matches the bike's frame.) Secondly, "brake" is spelled "break" in accordance with the official Craigslist style manual. Not only that, but there's also the requisite dismissal of the brake: it's there for "safety mostly," the implication being that he doesn't really need it since he's such a crack fixie rider. Also, there's some evocative prose in the phrase "glass-strewn brooklyn streets," as well as the patented Craigslist Ignuramus Fit Chart, in which the seller lists the height range for the bicycle despite the fact that he really has no idea what he's talking about. Lastly, he says it's fast. Bikes aren't fast--people are fast. Bikes are overpriced. It's an important distinction.

Now on to the IROs:

Black IRO Fixed Gear Bike (59cm) - $300 (Midtown West) [original URL: http://newyork.craigslist.org/mnh/bik/708100520.html]
Reply to: [deleted]Date: 2008-06-04, 10:49PM EDT

I'm selling a black IRO fixed gear to anyone who's interested. The bike is 59cm from the center of the bottom bracket to the top of the seat tube. Should be sufficient for anyone around 6ft (). I bought it here on Craigslist about a year ago for $400 and a bottle of whiskey and didn't end up riding very much (about 40 miles...maybe less). It's had a spot in the bike room in my building ever since, so it's still in great condition.

Unfortunately, I don't have any goodies to throw in, but I'd be happy to answer any questions. Also - in case it's not clear in the pictures - it has a speedometer (can be easily removed if necessary). I also installed new pedals about two weeks ago.

Drop me a line if you have any questions.








What?!? $300 for a complete fixed-gear? He's supposed to be asking twice that! I never thought I'd see the day. Not only that, but he's even apologizing for not throwing in any goodies. And he's only selling it to "anyone who's interested." Doesn't he know how Craigslist works? You're supposed to cajole and say things like, "This bike is a rocketship!" and "Beat the high gas prices!" I don't know who this guy is, but he must be from Nebraska or some place like that where people are neighborly instead of predatory and provide goods and services for what they're worth while dispensing practical bits of homespun wisdom for free. Or he's drinking too much whiskey. Or both.

Moving to the Bay Area and need to sell soon. This is a beautiful IRO with a few scratches rides great.Its cheap and worth checking out. For questions refer to (shop.irocycle.com) click on build parts, and then MARK V it will answer all questions.



OK, what's with the non-stratospherically priced 59cm IROs? Something creepy's going on here. Have I woken up in 2002? (No, I just checked and fortunately I haven't. I don't think I could live through "Ally McBeal," Eminem and Queen Elizabeth II's Golden Jubilee all over again.) Or does this presage a wholesale exodus to the Bay Area? (All the more reason the world needs my "Take a Pista, Leave a Pista" bicycle lending library.) Whatever the reason, for the moment IROs appear to be the dried fruit of fixed-gear bicycles. Do with that what you will.

Another clue to the identity of BSNYC. He referenced a writing "style manual" He knows there are different style manuals e.g. MLA APA etc. He is college educated and has done enough writing in a style to have casually thrown that in there. I'm leaning toward market research/marketing. His poor math and improper use of . . .dex as in index lead me to believe more marketing or a poor market researcher (like the other 98% of them). But a great writer.

Taras said...

Easy to complain about an ill-fitting bike when you are a shortie and all bikes are made for you. Given that the guy's 61cm frame looks like a bike friday it's very likely that it is extrimely hard to him to find a frame in the right dimensions. 59-64 are all max sizes for various brands.

Way to be clueless

urchin said...

I know that the prestige and presumed quality of the IRO product is below that of Bianchi, but suppose for a moment that we're not looking at the dried fruit of the used fixed-gear orchard, but at something not yet ripe? Could it be we'll see them screaming up to $700 by Fall? This would fit better with the general absurdity of the market.

On the other hand, the report of IRO transactions with hard liquor as an integral part suggests late fermentation.

A second timepoint should sort this out.

Hilarious post! Staying with the fruit metaphor it's big, juicy, fresh, appetizing, and organic. Yum!

Jim said...

Possible Reasons For The Inexpensive IRO Conundrum:

- The IRO's owners "need to sell now" (Craigslist Accepted Descriptor) because they are trying to scrape together enough cash to buy a Mission Bike - which is basically the same thing except with stickers on the frame.

- "IRO" is too difficult to spell in their Fixed Gear Gallery portfolio, so they have to ditch the bikes for others with more easily-spelled names. Also out for the same reason: track bikes by Merckx, Fondriest, and BMG.

- Even though they are made in China, the fact that they are sold by a guy in Eastern PA pretty much destroys their Asian Street Cred, such that no Keirin wannabe poseur is willing to ride one. After they sell their IROs, they'll be looking for higher priced, lower quality bikes with better street cred.

- It's possible that the bikes are being sold by actual cyclists, and the social stigma of owning a Pista is just too much to cope with, so they sprayed the frames in flat colors and are selling them as IRO, in the hopes they can slink out of the fixie/hipster scene without being noticed.

And as for that enormous bike... WTF? I heard Chewbacca called and he wants his Pista back.

I sincerely apologize for being insensitive to the plight of our nation's tall.

leroy said...

Taras --

You made BSNYC feel bad. Happy now? Any one who has read his blog knows how sensitive he is.

Honestly, it's not his fault Randy Newman didn't write a song about tall people.

Get over yourself, Taras.

Unless, of course, you are really tall.

In that case, no offense. I was just kidding, really.

Some of my best friends are tall and they're the nicest people you'd ever want to meet.

You know, I always say if I have a choice as to whether to draft behind a tall person or some vertically challenged fire plug, I'll draft the tall person every time.

Yes indeed.

Did I mention that Abe Lincoln was tall?

leroy said...

BSNYC --

True story, but I'm not sure how this affects the Pistadex.

On the way home trying to beat the rain yesterday, I saw a woman in a tight dress, with a little purse and high heels wobbling down the Second Avenue Bike Lane on a fairly new brakeless Pista.

I don't think she would have been able to change a flat on the Williamsburg Bridge.

She was having enough trouble trying to clip in while wearing heels.

Is this a confirmation of impending doom?

A confirmation that Bust Magazine (of which I had never heard before your post) is an influential publication with a vast readership?

Or confirmation of both?

Inquiring minds want to know.

Just to reassure those track enthusiasts who aren't familiar with the Pista.

Are you suggesting that particular pista is so large because the owner is really tall? That's ingenious!

Way to be humorless AND sanctimonious!

Anonymous said...

Cameron, I noticed that quick release too (actually the pictures sort of make it look like there are quick release levers on both sides of the front wheel).

But you've violated one of the Cardinal Rules of Bike Culture: Never blame the cyclist for their choices, inability to read basic directions, and/or lack of skill.
To that end,

1. The NJ legislature has been considering a bill, backed by some national "safety" organization, to ban quick releases on bikes sold in NJ (I'm not making this up).

2. At any moment, I expect that a prominent local bike advocacy organization, when confronted with this picture, will send out an action alert to its members, asking them to petition the DOT commissioner to address this dangerous situation with more bike lanes (ok, I'm making this up, sorta).

OpenYourEyes said...

The tall guy with the tall pista should have thrown in that he was needing cash to buy a bunch of frames to build an appropriately tall bike for his tall self. That way he would have been utilizing the power of CL to its fullest- unloading his junk while making a statement about being on the way to bigger and better trends.

It pisses me off that people own pistas and call them "gang green." This is not even a color. "Gangrene," is a medical condition.
The correct color, and trademark of Bianchi is "Celeste." This is very important knowledge if you own a Bianchi as so many ignorant hipsters now do.

People who've attended a college usually do feel they have some kind of intellectual advantage over people who didn't. I've rarely found that to be true, though. Have you? And the fact that style manuals exist is typically introduced to students in junior high school.

Something is puzzling me about the first bike. It is supposed to be "perfectly new," only two days old, yet isn't that a campy super record front brake? Didn't they stop making those in about 1990, when the record delta brake replaced it? Gum hood covers, now THATS old school.

dopepedaler said...

BSNYC is an ex-fixie rider that works at an ad agency as a copywriter (or as a designer...and was smart enough to bail on this soul-sucking industry). He's feeling a bit slighted that his once subversive identity trait is now mainstream.

Just to clear up the Bianchi paint confusion:

Celeste
Gang Green

wishiwasmerckx said...

Jewbeard, knowing that the color is called celeste green is indeed an indication of whether one is a real cyclist or a poser, but this guy thinks that a 55cm. fits a six footer, so we can probably securely place him in the poser category.

术+术:可能是唯一有可能冲上2300的同职业组合,天赋一般选用双恶魔法+贼:控制+爆发型,法师的爆发力略胜术士,不过容错性非常小,游戏相似组合还有法+野D,法+暗牧法+法:双冰法控制,综合来说还不错,续战力也存活能力也很强。双奥法的秒杀流一经提出就被喷的面目全非,我本人其实尝试过这个组合,可惜装备只有S2,法伤最多也只能撑到102X(现在能高不少),魔兽队友情况也差不多。这样的组合容错性低的离谱,虽然有10000+HP 400+韧性,但是感觉一被打就瞬间死,而且跑还跑不掉,所以这个打法还是更适合高端副本装,反正一样死很快。组合上还是克死战士队,别和我提盾反,网络游戏那么明显的动画效果能吸到个火冲不错了。网游基本上能够硬顶过我们5秒的职业只有骑士,冰法,盗贼和恶魔SS了。打盗贼队伍,如果是盗贼+看的见,一律先把看的见的OOXX了,双盗贼很难打,2斗篷我们免费网络游戏直接去一人。最后被一个队恶魔SS+骑士卡住了,因为奥法的后续爆发几乎没有,开局秒恶魔SS和骑士都不成功。感觉装备足够猛的话,2000是没问题的,2000以后看能否连好沉默来秒SS了。法伤最好是NOBUFF 1200+以上,最新网游保证秒杀的成功率,可以不用考虑血和韧性,建议装备牛B的法师们平时娱乐使用,非常畅快的战斗贼+暗牧:爆发力非常强的组合,而且他们的视频里很不厚道的最新免费网络游戏吃了金童3场贼+野D:第一赛季闷+盲+消失补闷+飓风的完美控制秒杀型队伍,不过在徽章能解所有控制技能之后容错性大大降低了。
