A lot of people have no issues airing their dirty laundry all over the internets. One guy in particular, from Toronto, Canada, has turned to Craigslist to shame his bicycle, a Giant XTC 2, after only a year of marriage.

I hope they’re able to work through this without it getting too messy. Let’s just be glad no children are involved…
The following ad is a perfect example of what I see on Craigslist just about everyday..
As an avid cyclist, and someone who has been very active my whole life, it bothers me to see so many of these sorts of ads. Everyday, millions (I’d assume) of people decide to get in better shape, and one of the quick answers to that is to buy a bicycle. Chances are, their doctors suggested it as a low-impact form of exercise, and it’s easy to envision oneself pedaling around outdoors, enjoying nature and feeling like a kid again.
