Hopefully someone will recognise this. If it ain't nicked I'll eat my hat.

    i dont think people with bikes that expensive (legitimately, anyway) tend to have shopping trollies in thier front gardens!

    Well for a "cyclist" who would buy a Cervelo he's made quite a few errors in his knowledge....

    Spelling of tyres wrong.
    No mention of gears or chainset information.
    Mentions DA wheelset, then a few lines down "Shimano wheels".
    Mentions 23" instead of the normal (for nowadays) 56cm frame.
    "bike looks like new" = Freudian slip of the tongue meaning I nicked it coz it looked shiny?
    No saddle info.
    No pedal info.
    How many miles has it done?
    What year is it?
    Bottle cages info.
    WHY has it NOT got under bar tape cabling? Looks like 105 triggers

    Is it me but does that frame look a bit big for 23", I'm not an expert of Cevelo but it looks almost like a 60cm frame.

    Weeee, I could go on.... :wink:

    Look at his Ebay feedback, not wanting to stereo type but you don't need to be Sherlock to see it doesn't look right.

    I did report this to ebay ages ago, just got a stock system generated response that they wouldn't do anything unless the old bill approached them.

    I think the title gives him away "Fully Carbon" WTF

    Ebay should do something about listings as blatantly dodgy as this one. You'd think the police would want to improve their stats by following these up surely it would be an easy arrest!

  • What really stands out is the obvious difference in the sizes of the frames. You could imagine this may be normal switching from road to MTB but the difference in saddle height is a bit much!
