Holy crap!  They had their seatpost inserted only 1.5" or so, so the top part of the seat tube ripped off?  The clamp keeps the tube from going in further, but what keeps it from rotating?  Is there a piece of something clamped in there on the rear side to keep it from rotating?

What's the big deal? Dropper posts also have rotational play.

Anyone have a good line on sewing a scrotum back up? Asking for a friend.

It's so bad it almost has to be trolling.

San Marcos Vet Clinic did an excellent job on my dog.

Do I have to wear a cone then?

Depends. Can we trust you not to chew out your scrotum stitches?

"Only issue was the original bike seat fastener was stripped and post was cut and the clamp was replaced. See pics. No welds are compromised. Only issue I have found."

What the bike is supposed to look like:

If you wanted a cheap beater and there was no concern over ever dropping the post, a little JB weld and maybe a couple of bolts drilled through the ST/post, you could make it a perm height post and just run it.

If.

I would not be opposed to that. seller wants $385 for it though. in that condition, it should be sold for $100 for parted out.

It looks like there is a little shim in there. Maybe they fixed that inside the seat tube somehow, got a smaller seat post, and clamped them together.

I'm in to buy it for FREEE and make it into a damn lamp.  Bike integrity is gone

 

The stress from the seat post is directly on that aft weld. No fucking way.

Just loose the seat and go trials

19" 29er trials... might make it the next "big" thing...

 

All that said, $385 for a damaged lower-end bike is dreamin'...

Not the worst thing I've encountered, but this is a really awful listing. arrogant, and he can't even spell with his bike posed in front of his garage flag. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/503792240984704/

Great bike, just don't have time to ride. Medium (18") frame
Wheels 26"
Front forks serviced by Tora brand new internals (350.00)
0 miles on new fork, tuned up at B.S.S Got it ready for the season and never road it

If you don't have 1,250.00 
Don't DM me 
Is it available?  messages will be blocked. will remove when sold
Thanks for looking

Can anyone identify this bike? is it worth anywhere near $1,250?

yes, the seller posted all of the photos right-side up because the bike is hanging upside down. if you can't be bothered to take your bike off the ceiling before taking photos, what do you expect ?
