Default Why do I feel like this is a terrible idea?

https://dallas.craigslist.org/ftw/bi...811364573.html
"I'm selling a rowbike, it is in good shape, it has just sat for awhile.

I'm not the original owner and this is not my personal bike.

Check out https://www.rowbike.com/ for all things rowbike. Feel free to ask any and all questions.

I can not deliver and am only available Sunday thru Thursday.

Asking 300

I am willing to trade for some of equal value, Snowboards and boots, kayak, go kart, motorcycle/dirt bike, mountain / road / bmx bike, or tools. I'm not interested in furniture, electronics or house hold appliances."

This is not my own ad.
A rowbike.
Seriously.
Hit a bump, try to turn, and next thing ya know, you're a stain on the asphalt.

I'll give you -6000$ for it, because that's what it's going to cost in medical bills when in done with it!

I visited the website, and it's got all these "claims" about how great this thing is for fitness with positively NO evidence.
If he paid me to take it, I would and then sell it off to some sucker that's worried about his 'health' by buying a machine that will get him run over.
I'll pass.

This is the kind of machine that deserves to have no wheels and stay as an indoor, stationary exercize machine.

Uhmmm, I didn't start this thread here.
I started it in Crazy Craigslist Finds.
I was actually wondering which mod moved it.
And sorry about the "other" thread that ya closed. (no offense taken, I totally understand why)
So yeah, this find was on CL, so if you could/would move it back to CCF, that'd be great.
I'll edit the opening post, 'cause I guess it's not quite clear that THIS IS NOT MY AD.

Ahaa. so you were quoting a CL find...
without 'quoting' and without the link to the source...

Who'd thunk...
See.. this is what you get for posting random for sale stuff..
misunderstandings

'sid

PS moved back:
next time, please add the source so this doesn't happen again
