For Sale: Create fixed / single speed

Posted on
  • For sale i have my Create Original.

    The bike has been used very little due to being too small.

    It is in excellent condition. I have fitted a GT 110mm stem and bullhorn bars.
    I still have the original stem and riser bars if they would be prefered, or as well as to sweeten the deal.

    Charge spoon saddle which has barely been used due to buying a different saddle for my Plug.

    Rear brake only fitted (simply because i stole the front for the Plug)

    Chain ring is 44t, flip flop hub with 16t freewheel and 17t fixed.

    Original pedals and straps included.

    Looking for £200 ono

    Collection from Coventry. Meeting point can be arranged.

  • you will find sale threads like this work better on Fridays

  • It is dangerous as it is currently set up, and not road legal. I won't comment on how ugly it is, or the price given you could buy one of these pieces of shit brand new for less.

  • You should search "unipack" on this forum. Also, you really should see what's on offer in the classified section, I already found two much better complete bikes for the same/less money in two pages.
    Welcome to the forum.

  • You could also check the Rules before posting!

    No cross-posting adverts you've put on other sites. If you have an item for sale anywhere other than here, like ebay, bikeradar, ctc, retrobike, etc. then you cannot post it here. However, if you have posted it on one of those other sites, other people who have discovered it are allowed to post it in the eBay/Craigslist finds thread. You must not do this yourself.

    So this is not good: Create for sale

  • Especially when you're trying to do one on the forumengers! £280 here while £250 on gumtree???

    I'm sure you'll get a warm welcome here...

  • Dibs ...

  • Must be a troll, surely? All the boxes have been ticked: an overpriced crate with no front brake that is listed cheaper elsewhere? It's too good to be true.

  • He tried selling some charge bars and brakes for £70........
    Also from Coventry must be super smart.

  • Useful feedback as ever.
    I've priced it at that simply knowing it will get knocked down much less anyway.

    If you don't want it don't buy it. I'm not posting on here for everyone's unconstructive comments.

  • I'm not posting on here for everyone's unconstructive comments.

    In that case you have come to completely the wrong place.

    I think if you post this in the Foffa thread you would get more interest

    You post a:

    UNSAFE - Check
    Fugly - Check
    Overpriced - Check
    Nasty - Check

    Bike on here and your not surprised by the feedback? Its better this way than someone actually buying this piece of shit and eating concrete.
    Remove the bike from internet / road - get it safe and knock £150 your asking price.

    Here's feedback:

    • your bike costs far too much, it's sold for £180 new and if selling here is like selling to a mate, this is not Ebay; do you homework: those bike are known to be bad, and looking at the classifieds should have shown that for the same amount of money, you could get a far better alternative (Langster steel, charge plug, etc...);
    • You sell the bike on gumtree for less than here! which leads to the last point:
    • You broke a rule of the classified: you CANNOT post a bike for sale here AND somewhere else at the same time!

    Create bikes are known to be bad in terms of components and most importantly frame quality, hence my advice to read about Unipack bikes.
    Also, you are trying to sell a bike to a crowd of people extremely knowledgeable about them; once again, had you done your homework, you'd know that it is a very bad idea to run with a rear brake only.

    What did you expect? you join "the nicest forum on the internet" and expect people to take your shite?
    Welcome to the forum!

  • To be honest, you're being lucky, usually ads like this get so flamed!

    I'm almost disapointed, I was expecting popcorn...
