Here’s the Craigslist post in full:

I’m parting with my custom built bike. This bike and I went on a lot of rides together, to the farmer’s market, to Rainbow, delivering pies, you name it. It is a pleasure to ride and it is in really good condition.

Sadly I am leaving the country. Having shuttered my business years ago, this bike has been chilling out, unridden, for a couple years (until yesterday). So I’ve decided to sell it instead of store it.

Here are the details:

Frame & Fork: Pake c’mute, Tange 4130 Butted Cr-Mo Steel 50 cm with a custom bright red paint job

Brakeset: Shimano Deore – with an opposite set up (front brake on the right, back on the left)
Shift Levers: SRam attack – this is twisted upside down, it was more comfortable with the handlebars
Front Derailleur : none
Rear Derailleur : Shimano deore XT
Bottom Bracket: Shimano Sealed Bearing
BB Shell Width: 68 mm
Rear Cogs: 9-speed
Saddle: Soma Ta-Bo
Handlebar: Origin 8 Urban Pro
Headset: Threadless IRD Technoglide
Stem: Origin-8
Crankset: Sugino RD-2
Pedals: MKS GR-9
Toe Clips: Soma Four Gate
Toe Straps: Soma Double Straps
Rear Cassette: Shimano 9-speed
Seatpost: Generic Alloy


Hubs: Shimano 105s
Rims: Velocity Deep-V
Spokes: DT Swiss Stainless
Tires: Vittoria Zaffiro White
Grips: Oury Grips

Additionally this bike is outfitted with a Wald basket with wooden base, a ToPeak Explorer rack, a double kickstand that lifts the back wheel up (the basket is too heavy to have a leaning kickstand) and pinhead locks on the wheels and I will give the buyer the original and only key.

Plus I can throw in two orange ortlieb’s to attach to the rack.

Asking $600

Read on for lots more pics.

Valentine’s Day sucks

Happy in love? Aww that’s so cute, now just go away please…This week we’re all over celebrating the single life with our BFFs and at the same time cursing the single life by getting oh so Emo on you. Sadderday SF asks you to song request your broken heart out so we can all get a good cry or scream on the dance floor.

Things to do in SF this weekend if you’re a local and you don’t care about the Super Bowl

1. Go to the final American Tripps at DSF in the Lower Haight tonight! DSF had to close its doors due to rising rents and stuff, so this is your LAST CHANCE to party there! And how long’s it been since you went to one of these Berlin-style ping pong parties anyway??


2. Go to the Rice Paper Scissors Lunar New Year Brunch at Pizza Hacker on Saturday! The RPS crew only does their brunch thing every now and then, so you need to hop on this opportunity. They’re doing a “Phở French Dip,” man!


That’s it!

Things to do in SF this weekend if you’re in town for the Super Bowl

1. Go to a Berlin-style ping pong party tonight! Every town’s got football, but only San Francisco has Berlin-style ping pong parties!


2. Have Vietnamese food for brunch on Saturday! Every town’s got burritos and clam chowder, but only San Francisco has Vietnamese brunch popups in a pizza restaurant!


That’s it!

What were you born for?


Just another reminder — follow Mission to Market.
