Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer?

That listing is incorrect. Those wheels are Cane Creek Sprint 50's, which retailed for $1500. The Endurance 50's have Sapin bladed spokes and a low flange 18 spoke radial front wheel. I actually got a set of Endurance 50's for $500, when I ordered a set of Sprint 50's, but they sent me a set of Endurance 50's instead by mistake in a box labelled Sprint 50. Later on, I picked up a Sprint 50 rear for only $200. I haven't even used the Sprint 50 rear yet, but figured I'll never see a deal like this again in my lifetime, and can always sell it for more than I paid for it. These wheels are totally excellent quality, very stiff, stong, perfectly true and the bearings are really smooth.

Would you guys be interested in working prototypes at half off? I'm considering posting some just for SSFG.

I just bought a Chrome when they had that 50% of sale, otherwise I would totally be up for it. Maybe I'd be interested in a backpack? We'll see...

If you made a big one with 3000+ CI and an x strap I would be very interested. My chrome bag is super uncomfortable sometimes for work(JJ bike delivery)

yeah, i'd totally be a smaller backpack or even messenger prototype. I've got a huge messenger but I find myself wishing I had something smaller for day to day use.

Is this a deal?

http://richmond.craigslist.org/bik/2027685101.html

(PS: I know this is probably not the most appropriate thread to ask this in..but it beats starting a new thread. Amirite?)
(PSS: I really have no intention of buying this for myself..just seeing if it seemed like a decent deal or not).

Yes, especially if the bag has a prototype expandable record pouch.

lol..i didn't even see that line of text.
And I didn't click the pics.

I was just wondering if there was any re-sell potential. But I guess there is always a "greater fool" out there..
