My review of Karim's Bikes in Berkeley:

Two friends have recovered their stolen bikes from there. I went there to shop for a trailer and left there pissed off. One other thing: for those who think Karim's gave you a great deal: bike thieves get theirs. If you are sitting on someone's else bike, be prepared to be taken off the stolen bike you just bought from Karim's. I hope you aren't riding it when you go down.
Before I receive a mooshoo-style flaming, I like to hear from someone who has actually visited Karim's...

so wait, you wrote a review for a place you've never been? :confused:
I've been to Karim's, just like I said in my review.

He wanted almost full price for an used trailer, then when I pointed out the wear-n-tear, he said, "You're here, just buy it!"

And two of my friends have gotten stolen bikes back from Karim's, for real.

What a shi!!y shop. That's what you get in gheto a$$ Berkeley though.

Your review prolly wouldn't have gotten flagged if you hadn't gone and started threatening people.

I have personally found two bikes there. My roommate and girlfriend at the time. I have also taken back bikes from people who bot them at Karim's.
Shady, shady, shady.

I walked into that place once. Asked for a star nut and the proprietor looked at me like I was from mars.
Maybe he thought you were propositioning him for a relative of the Rusty Trombone...

If he's used to making deals with junkies, it's a serious possibility.
