trek 5900 frame cheap on ebay, Just what I'vejiggs
Dec 2, 2003 6:44 AM
been looking for, it looks like buy it now price of 499 bucks. The seller doesn't have any reviews, and he just joined up the other day, but he does have pics of the bikes that use the frame, maybe from interbike. Anybody here inclined to take this offering seriously? 58cm is my size too, also my favorite trek color.

Product photos taken at a trade show or from a magazine.

If anyone bids on this auction, they deserve to lose their money.

Other posters have pointed out all the red flags. If you *really* want to send money to Nigeria, I'd suggest a reputable charity ;-).

I really think he meant to type "soruntocop" instead of "sorundocop" meaning after you get scammed, piss off and run to a cop cuz he'll be gone. Well gone and $500 of you money richer too!
