Last week there was a guy selling high end bikes on eBay with very low prices, then all suddenly disappeared, he was Glasgow based, the very same bikes are back on now, but he's moved to Liverpool this week, codrik_123 is the seller, don't know how to put actual link on here, there's a Scott foil, pinarello dogma, cervelo and colnago all for sale, just be careful.

    Bidding is going mad on the pinarello...

    Hi - Is the bike still for sale?
  • Mickyg88Mickyg88 Posts: 289
    All still for sale....
  • His 'my world' part says he's located in romania. You may get the bike but I suspect it'll be a fake

    You'll be lucky to even get a fake! Somebody will no doubt report the ads and they will be pulled.

    Ooooh, I'm going to bid. The 2009 Cervelo only weighs 5.2kg so must be worth £102 of anyones money.....
    Faster than a tent.......
  • He accepts Paypal, so at the end of the day if you receive a fake or nothing you should get your money back...

    Yeah it is. Blatantly dodgy but somebody really wants a dogma!!!
  • Mickyg88Mickyg88 Posts: 289
    I fancy the Foil but there's no size on any of the bikes, messages him but no reply... Damn I really wanted it
  • p1tsep1tse Posts: 694
    There's a bianchi c2c cheap at the £250 but when I asked about size and spec he couldn't tell me as its son bike who's gone away

    Said it was 20inch and to lookup spec myself

    Another waist of time

    Just had an email regarding size on the Foil, he says he has many sizes available, and guess what, his email address indicates he's in Asia, says it all, and they are still bidding on the dogma!

    This guy has never sold anything and had no previous transactions involving bikes - has somebody hacked into his account and used it as a front?

    only £3 postage! I wonder which courier he uses? :-)

    found it dodgy as hell might be bidding for some fun do you think we can get it over a £million?
