I was looking at craigslist recently before I went to bed and found this.

No idea what that is. You need more pics.

Looks a bit like a reflector on the pedal? We need better pics really. What does he describe it as?

Well, we're gonna need more than just a moderately lit picture. A part list or at least more pics would help.

It looks complete. You'll have to actually ask the person selling if it is complete or not. My GUESS would be yes. As for it's worth, like said before, what is it? What make, model? What parts are on it? BTW, if you are confused by what we mean, perhaps you meant to link the actual CL ad. You didn't. You linked a photo only.

Here's the post to the bike... it says Fit BMX bike. And it's a Fit Level 2 bike (I can tell because it has the Revenge Industries singlewall rim in the front and the double wall one in the rear) So all Fit Level 2 completes have a Cromoly front triangle and Cromoly Bars and I think Cromoly forks... so this bike would've been about $530 new... but if you're on the market for a bike I would recommend this bike here... http://www.easternbikes.com/shovelhead
It's a way better bike than the Fit you saw on Craigslist... this is $400 and it has a FULL Cromoly frame, fork, and bars. Double wall rims front and rear. Sealed bearings... this is WAY better than the Fit you found...

I agree Honda. I JUST picked up the Shovelhead (in the Trans Gold) & it is everything they said. The tires are a bit bigger (2.4") than I am used to but, like you said, you cannot beat the price for everything included. Mine came shipped to my door, tax-free. $399 all in. Took two days. from the time I placed my order to the time it showed up.

You can find better than a shovelhead for $400. Someone re just posted getting a basically new s&m custom worth $1600+ for $500. Just be patient, keep looking.

Ask if he is the guy working on it. That is an Erik's bike shop it is in-could determine more details on it.

Also the cost on the frame is GREATLY exaggerated, especially if he is a shop employee. BTM's are not "nearly 600". They retail for about 360.

Honestly I would bet that he got a mid level complete then got a new frame and a couple parts, based on the Revenge wheels in colors they only offer on completes.

400 is not a bad deal though.

yeah, when I looked it up its 350.75 NEW and the guy hasn't replied yet so I'm guessing he sold it already, also my rear hub just bit the dust so if you see one for sale let me know. also, I'm looking at this one as well
