NEW Dura Ace 10 spd on EBAY!!mybike1

I was wandering around on EBAY and saw for sale a new Dura Ace 10 spd group! The guy says he is the first around to get it. It doesn't include the hubs, pedals and headset. I am going to call him and ask about it.

So why would someone immediately sell DA 10 on eBay. No possibility of a scam or grey market goods, I suppose?

what the heck? how did he get it so fast? does he work for a pro team or the 10 speed groupo even out yet?

No distributor that I am aware of has it yet. In fact, no bike company that I am aware of is yet shipping Dura-Ace bikes, and they will get it long before it goes to retail. OEM will see it first.

I suspect this is a scam, but I would ask the guy selling it for a picture of it all, in the boxes and of the complete group. If he can produce, then maybe I am wrong...

Well, guess I should have looked this up before I posted... they show the boxes and most of the group... it seems this is a bike shop selling it. So I was indeed wrong.

I called up last night and talked to a guy named Steve. He told me that the parts are real and in the boxes with all the literature. He says they are just a really high end pro shop that just got lucky. I wish my local shop got lucky like that sometimes!

I've been in Parkside. It's in a smallish town in Ohio. They are very reputable and the shop is very cool. If the cranks were only 175s...

I called up to see how much the reserve was and he sold it already. He told me they are going to try and get another group in, who knows though.
