Does it seem likely?

    Got to be nicked. Too cheap. The retail price was £5499 for this bike in 2010.

    I wondered if it actually exists - could be a scam of some sort.

    The ad doesn't even give a size.

    No reason given or anything you would actually expect of someone that loves a bike. Stay away. Lets hope if it is nicked the owner is watching.

    If it's a scam not sure what they are after. Lets face it. It would either be some sort of cash on pickup or via Paypal or Credit Card Company.

    I do believe that most people are honest but this is too good to be true and any of us recognise this. There are also all sorts of scumbags out there,

    Just reported it to Gumtree as possibly fraudulent, pointing out that the retail price is £5699. That's £5000 more than the sale price. Also, the reason for sale - "to buy a new bike with electronic shifters" - seems a bit illogical. The SL3 makes a perfect host for Di2.
