My understanding is that the description rather than the photo should govern the contents of the auction if there is discrepency. In other words, the picture may show more stuff or less stuff than is described, but the seller should deliver what is described in the text, right? Do people agree (assuming they have not discussed and clarified the discrepency beforehand)?

I'm a pretty regular eBay user and would agree... to a point. If someone posted a photo that seemed clearly misleading, I might have a issue. I think the best approach is for the description to include a disclaimer like "photograph shows a complete bike but this is for FRAME only" or "pedals not included."

...although regarding condition, a picture is worth a thousand words. If I see the manufacturer's website photo of a frame on ebay, and the frame is described as being "used," there may be trouble on the horizon.

Give us more details... the gorier, the better!
