Is this EBay ad for real?(9 posts)

Is this EBay ad for real?Kristin

I know this is an MTB ad, but it sounds really fishy to me. Over $5,000 new?? I thought Deore was entry level...just above crap components.

The sellers' name is a palindrome of "ove do".. misspelling of over do, as in excessive!
A joke perhaps. Treks priciest '03 OCLV hardtail is $2500Kristin

The person is a used car salesman obvously. Nothing about the bike is that great. New it probably cost a quarter of that and then he added a few over priced items and thinks that makes the bike super expensive. Right now a bike with that setup in Specialized, Trek, or Giant (aluminum frame) would run $500-$1000.
I disagree...spacemonkey

...a used car salesman would at least make it SOUND appealing. He is more likely a used futon salesman, a pawn shop clerk or unemployed. The bike is crap and so is the sellers pathetic description.
I'm betting there's someone in Nigeria...The Walrus
