Check out the description of the item and the picture. Is it just me?

sidi or carnac?wilsonc

The best part is that the description says carnac, and the picture is of Sidi shoes...

Many ebayers put the names of competitors in the description to attract more hits. This item would come up in a search for carnac AND Sidi shoes.

In most cases a description reads something similar to "Sisi shoes size 38.5 NOT Carnac Northwave Time". It's common and can increase the number of hits your auction gets.
Mountain triathlon shoes?mickey-mac

Sure, some mountain triathlons are run, but those aren't triathlon shoes under any definition I've ever seen. Is mountain biking falling out of favor to the extent that the seller thinks he'll have any easier time unloading the shoes as triathlon shoes? I wonder if he also has listed them as mountain shoes without any bites.
