For most of my adult life I've been exercising by riding bicycles, when it turns out all I needed was one of these to . . . sprout a booty.

(Seriously, I posted this because I thought "brand newy" was funny, but this thing actually looks as if it's never been ridden. So if you're one of those people who admire the aesthetics and engineering of dentist chairs, this might just be the bike for you.)

$400 reward for stolen electric quadracycle


[url]https://seattle.craigslist.org/see/bik/d/seattle-400-reward-for-stolen-electric/7144922414.html

Maybe it wasn't stolen. Maybe it just got sick of everything and ran away.

Rode away. (Whatever.) Such a sad photo, as it looks back at the city and ponders the passenger it left behind. Chin up, quadracycle! Brighter days are ahead!

I'm sure it does.
I watched a his and hers pair of those sell at a local auction last year for $425, yet I was able to buy four nice vintage Raleigh, Robin Hood, and BSA bikes for $5. People don't know the difference these days.

Take a moment today to pour one out. Craigslist, A Tragedy.


Never used and never installed. Onza "Judy Yellow" Mountain Bike vintage bar ends. I never was able to buy the bike I wanted.... So these sat in a drawer for decades.


https://sandiego.craigslist.org/csd/...145641342.html


Jokes aside, I'd love to put them on the middle of a flat bar as bike packing aero bars. They're the perfect shape.
