Ignoring the keyword title spam, it's pretty badass if not super retro.


Keyword spamming means using unrelated words (which drives me insane), but these all relate to the bike, although some moreso than others admittedly.


Even Track and Fixie?

We could also get into a debate about whether early 90s and tri bars are 'vintage' :twisted: Shameless I say, I feel wrong including the word 'vintage' in the title of something that really is 'vintage'.

And the capitals really aren't helping his cause.

Point. I probably should have done more than just look at the picture briefly :oops:

If you're talking about the one I'm thinking of, it was blue & yellow.

This is turning into the de facto 'hot tip' thread too.

If anyone is after a set of great commuter wheels, look no further:
http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/231005108896 ... 1423.l2649

I bought an identical set off this guy about 12 months back for the start price. Great wheels. You see a few of this particular combo around.

Specialized Rockhopper (USA) Mountain Bike on Gumtree $15 http://www.gumtree.com.au/c-ViewAd?AdId=1020559523


I've got a feeling that's the same one I bought the other day. Saddle looks familiar.

That's what happens when you're a Ninja, hard to take good photos when you hiding.

Good at killing, terrible at photography.

Regardless of photography and killing... I'm happy to pick it up and store it (or help box it up and ship it) if anybody wants it.

It's way too big for me, but I'm local and have spare shed space...

just a heads up for any brisbane ebay bidders:
steve, aka gem22, aka victa98 sold a eurosport tri a to another (interstate) forum member, and i was asked to help collect it.
http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/old-retro-vi ... 7675.l2557
then:
http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/old-retro-vi ... 7675.l2557
i tried arranging collection, but steve was pretty lax on the replies and eventually decided he might have a crack at relisting rather than replying.
definitely a violation of policy etc.
after the buyer contacted ebay, then him, our mate steve replied with:

Dear (xxxxx),

contact me again you and Shannon will have the police on your doorstep .

- victa98


ebay has pulled his ad, and that's about it.

i've given this pro kerbsider hundreds of dollars in the last year; you might have bought bikes from him too.
i'd like to go round and poo in his letterbox, but really, not much can be done about it. just putting it out there so you all know he's a piece of work.
all i can say is, "steve, you're giving woodridge a bad name".

my ebay is telling that 10 people are viewing that item every hour. Must be more bicycle collectors around than I thought.
