Someone could make a video explaining this, but it would still be dumb.


P.S. Your Volunteers have taken the lead in the 9th. :bday:

That Christian Walker is pretty sneaky. He occasionally has a hot bat too.

Me neither. I did it in 4 which is typical for me these days.

Are you there on business or pleasure?

The bike clearly means business, but I'm here strictly for pleasure.

That's not a serious bicycle.

Color coordinates well with the bike saddle.

Back in Spring of 2021, I started buying C&V bikes. My first purchase was a 1989 Schwinn Circuit, with its Columbus tubing, chrome fork and chain and seat stays, and Sante groupset. I thought at the time I overpayed a bit, $450, but it turned out that the bike had ALL the original bits in good condition, including the barely-used original Rolls saddle - and they go for $70 and up in Ebay! So, in the end, I didn't mind over paying just a little, even if the frame is kinda small and required a new seatpost and 130mm stem to fit me.

Maybe 6 months later, another 1989 Circuit pops up on Ebay, this time in my size. But they want $800, and $200 for shipping. And that bike has been languishing there for close to a year now. They have the option of making an offer, but I doubt they'd take what I'd offer.

Last week, someone listed ANOTHER Circuit on Ebay, also my size. This one's listed for $1200.

This morning, someone else listed YET ANOTHER Circuit, again in 23". This one's listed for $1800!

In watch collecting, we used to see this sometimes. You won't see any listings of a particular watch for years, and then one gets listed and suddenly there's a bunch of them listed. We call it "Monkey See, Monkey Do".

Put yours up for $2000, obviously.

I wondered what happened to Sagan, didn't see him in the results when I looked briefly. Today I saw that he finished in 63rd and it was his first time at a gravel event. Also, he has had a number of physical issues including covid twice and hasn't spent much time on the bike this year. I think he still hopes to do the Tour, however.

HA!

It occurred to me that if I were trying to sell something at a high price and it wasn't moving, and I had a friend with the same thing, I might ask him to list his for a much higher price to make mine look cheap by comparison!

When the "Monkey See, Monkey Do" things happen, sometimes what you'll see is the first one that sells is the first real auction to close, and after that the Buy It Now ones sell, presumably to folks who didn't win the auction.
