Listed as St Wilier, which seems odd. The ad doesn't mention size of frame, model or anything that you would expect a genuine seller to list. Looks fishy to me.

    A question has been asked
    How many speeds does the Shimano groupset have? If I was to buy the bike and put my track rear wheel in the frame would the gears still work?

    Had a response to the question asked above
    The bike has 20 gears
    I am sure the gears would work if you change the rear wheel but would prefer you to make 100% sure
    I have only used the bike 3 times so it is in perfect condition
    Any more queries do not hesitate to ask

    The groupo looks to be of Italian origin not Japanese.
    I've added a signature to prove it is still possible.
  • I think the D locks in the wheels are an ingenious way to support the bike for its photo. On which subject, why are photos on ebay so often from above and down and not directly side on ?

    The St Wilier should sell with the high number of bids it has attracted :lol:

    The locks are still there because the railings had to be cut away...Silly You!!!

    I'm sorry but what does this achieve? I'm no expert and wouldn't have been able to answer your question either, does that equate to me being a thief?

    Just because someone's listed a bike with lack of description doesn't automatically make them a thief.
