I’ve actually got an RSS feed setup for Pittsburgh Craiglist bikes. I must be a glutton for punishment or something. It’s like 75% crap, 10% some guy trying to sell two tires for $25 for weeks on end, and 15% weird odds and ends ($400 rail road bike dude)

I am about to buy this just to reward these kids for their initiative.

Should hook these kids up with bumper bike and start a detailing shop.

I have a lot of rust they can try to sand away.

@ndromb And I wonder why there was only one girl?

Flag this guy: http://pittsburgh.craigslist.org/bik/1778585304.html

Complains about the kids posting services in a sale section. Too much of a dick to see his own irony?

Always good to see people fixing up bikes, I’m about to try my hand at it as well. Im getting tired of taking my bike to get every little thing fixed. I figure if I get a couple of bikes I can work on (i.e. take a part and put back together) I can stop relying on other for just about everything (I can change my flats but thats about it)

I mean, he does have a point that the fork is on backwards…

i think maybe the whole wheel is just turned… it looks like the handlebars and fork are both matching in orientation, this sometimes happens when you use kickstands.

it could be an optical illusion though… or i could just love these kids

I’ve seen bikes come out of Toys’r us that way. And worse. Scary. Whenever I see a kid in the neighborhood with a shiny new bike I ask them to let me check it over.

That fork is definitely backwards.

+1 for the Grindstone kids showing some initiative though.
