I got a new connection. Nice and local. Friendly and affordable. I sat around for awhile to chat, but had to excuse myself to sell a tandem.
Bought for: $100
Work into it: $0. (Five mins of adjustments and a wipe-down).
Sold for: $250
My apartment/room rent: $250 (which I just paid an hour earlier).
And the joy of rolling a tandem bicycle out of the van's side doors to show it to a prospective buyer? Notable. My van is currently a full-on Craigslist showroom.
