I can't say I'm not tempted! If space in the garage was unlimited I'd 100% pick that up for a bar hopper and LogLoop shits'n'giggles bike. 

You know of all the over-priced crap I've seen on CL & FB lately...dare I say that this almost seems reasonably priced?!

Guitars have doubled, it's insane.

Are you selling yours on CL?  Not Reverb?

I pretty much stopped flipping, people are getting worse. Reverb just raised rates too.

That's...amazing. I'd love some rear view or rear axle closeups. But it looks like the frame isn't modified at all. It looks like they just custom built an axle to hold both wheels.

And, of course, a Talas on the front. Looks flexy.

I love the ad-hoc concept of the design, but the 'want to be' mechanical engineer in me is worried about the torsional stresses now on the swingarm and its bearings.....

Need a parallelogram setup like those modern side-cars have.   I can already see a special category for the next Peddler's Pass Race:  Sam Pilgrim Special Class

"Makes working out an absolute delight"

Let me run that through my bullshit decoder:

"I am not really a mountain biker, I am a CrossFit enthusiast and I bought way more bike than I needed, then I realized that I did not like this sport and have moved on to my next obsession..."

It's not a bad bike and the price is not incredibly out of line. I'd be willing to bet that the person took good care of it because it was recently tuned up. However, if you are gonna spend $3900 you can get a NEW full carbon for not much more. I bought a 2019 Orbea Occam for not much more than that with a full new warranty. Spending that much on a 4 year old bike with zero warranty is not a smart move based on some of the other options out there.

Anyone looking for the PERFECT bike for Austin?

This is the guy, I think his name is Jeremy, who flips bikes on Craigslist for a living. He’s a PoS. Uses the same ad for every bike on there.

He seems scummy. A 200mm DH bike is more or less unrideable in Austin unless it’s your dedicated spider mountain bike.
 

Fortunately, I think the price is going to scare off any beginners who may not understand what this bike is intended for and for those looking for a DH bike, they will probably hammer this dude on the price.

I've seen 1,000 ads with the photos taken on that same wall. same background on every photo. they are listed under "bikes for sale by owner" which is technically true, but if it's a business, he should list them as such. super annoying to scroll past 30 bikes reposted every day from the same person.

Yeah, I know the guy.  Everytime I'm on Clist - I flag his posts and hide them.  I totally agree that he is a business at this point.

He's the official Craig's List poster for Bicycle Spode Shop.

Is he connected? I always thought he was independent. I actually met him once, a co-worker bought one of his bikes.

Geeze. Would need to negotiate to take over the lease on that warehouse as well. Where the hell would you put all that?  and the head ache of moving it all to another location.

Looks like someone bit big on the idea of ebikes but is learning the reality of both ebikes and the COVID world. My guess is that he was starting a rental business. Hope he can find a buyer.
