I've seen these picutures before on a lance armstrong website, I cant find it right now, but: the person selling it doesnt say anything about the bike only the specs, doesnt mention the condition/miles, also signed up in australia... I also noticed the guy has all positive feedback, so I dont want to ruin anyones repuatation or anything, just pointing it out. sorry for the run on sentence. haha
Certainly looks out-of-place. (nm)TFerguson

Another pre-approved bike listing from a hijacked seller who has never sold or even bought one little bike part on ebay. What do you think the chances are that someone would be that into biking that they buy a high end Trek, buy and sell on ebay alot, and yet you don't see even one prior transaction dealing with anything bike related? You take that in combination with the sketchy things you already pointed out and you know your dealing with a thief.
definitely a scamhackmechanic

I was selling a 5900 a few weeks ago, and one of the bidders e-mailed me an offer he received for this bicycle. He recognized it as a fraud and wanted me to know my bidders were receiving this offer. I like how the pedals are called "Shimano prototypes". Well, yeah, maybe 2 years ago. Since then they have been called Dura Ace.
