Bitter man selling bike he’s used twice - and offers to throw in his ex for those who ‘feel like being taken for a ride’

A rather peeved victim of a dumping has taken to Gumtree to sell his bike - along with the girlfriend who he says ‘took him for a ride’.

The South African says he is selling his Specialized road bike which his ex - who was into cycling - encouraged him to buy.

He wrote: "Bought this bike because my girlfriend was into cycling.

"She dumped me and I hate cycling. I've used in twice since I bought it. Apparently it's quite a good bike.

"I'll throw in some size 9 specialized shoes for good measure along with the ex's phone number if you ever feel like being taken for a ride."

After an unpromising start, having to be bribed by her parents to learn to ride without stabilisers, Sarah became rather keener on cycling in her university years, and was eventually persuaded to upgrade to proper road cycling by the prospect of a shiny red Italian bike, which she promptly destroyed by trapping a pair of knickers in the rear derailleur. Sarah writes about about cycling every weekend on road.cc.

Stupid man, saying he would give his exs number!
I see she had a good reason to dump him. He should just get over it and move on

You brought a bike because the missus told you too even though you don't like cycling. Grow some balls dude.

Well Rory McIIroy dumped his girl and never looked back, should have given the bike a second chance though.

Dumped man sells his bike - and his girlfriend - on Gumtree

He's not really selling his (ex-)girlfriend, though, is he? You don't work for the Daily Mail by any chance?

Fair point, but the headline is misleading. Think of all the poor, sad buggers that have signed up to Gumtree only to find that they couldn't buy his ex-girlfriend!  40
