my guess is Cannondale does not authorize the dealer to sell over the 'net.

Not that Cannondale doesn't have other things on its collective mind right now...

Could be stolen. They want to avoid fraud charges. Just thinking of all the negative. It may be what the other poster stated...restrictions by C'dale.

They also had a couple Pistas listed in the same manner -- pick-up only.

I'm in Canada and can't get a Pista here since the CDN distributor doesn't import the Pista. I emailed the contact on eBay and he was willing to sell to me and ship to Canada via UPS. Granted, he wanted full MSRP.

But, judging from the "tone" of his description, it sounds like this particular auction is not open to discussion like the Pista was....likely because of C-Dale's dealer policy.

Nice bike though!

Cycle Smithy is a real bike shop. I have visited there, I'm from Michigan and it's a cool shop. I would doubt the bike is stolen. I haven't bought anything from them so I can't speak of thier service.

I was in that shop recently. They were pleasant and seem reputable. There was a mechanic down in the basement that could be Sheldon Brown's twin brother. Had a lot of nice frames that I don't see often.

Oh yeah, they had a Cannondale moto mounted on a wall. Does that tell you anything?
