My Raleigh Sprite has been sold out from under me! According to the seller, there was only one other inquirer about the bike. The potential buyer contacted her solely through e-mail which made her think that he wasn't sure about purchasing the bike. She seemed relieved when I made plans with her to purchase the Sprite and removed her ad from Craigslist almost immediately. I thought it was a done deal. It turns out that the other interested party called today with an offer to buy the bike for her original $75 asking price. She called to tell me that he came by while she was out and gave her husband $80 for the bike. She said that he fixes up bikes and lives in Atlanta so maybe I could buy the bike from him, but I know that he's going to ask a lot more than $80 for that bike once he's through with it. So there it is: no Raleigh Sprite for me. I'll have to keep on looking for my dream bike.
