Seen a huge bargain on a bike 50% RRP, unused.
Seller 100% somewhere in darkest Wales.
Ask to see a receipt/proof of ownership before bidding
Then book a B&B and have a weekend away to collect
That's not talking me out of it!
Has it been used at all ?
Is it being sold by retail outlet or private person ?
But then if its deepest Wales it was more than likely owned and ridden by a sheep that bought the wrong size or wanted to try and do some exercise and gave up after putting it in the shed .
On a serious note there are loads of bike out there that get bought ridden once or twice then go back in the shed or such and sold off after 6 months at a bargain price , just look out if its on a cycle to work scheme
Well do you need or want it? Can you afford it? Do hope it's not another Cinelli though
Want, need, afford...these are all relative terms...
No, pedals haven't even been put on, private.
If it's cycle to work, does that mean it's the company's and not his to sell?
Unless it's stolen or a dodgy Chinese copy, the only other scenario I can imagine is that it's C2W somebody did just to get the readies.
or he has not made the final payment
As long as it's theirs ... enjoy seeing the mountain sheep
C2W means no sale until paid for or the company can claim it back. I've seen people get a bike just to re-sell for the cash. However, tracking a sale could be hard to do.
Post the link and we'll tell you if it's worth a punt or not
1) Check feedback. If ok, then 2) send a query by email. (Check the cut of his/her jib). If good response, consider 3) send another query. (For same reason). If ok then proceed if you still want it, knowing your protection as a buyer is pretty good, so long as you play by ebay rules.
Well, they've said not c2w and have a receipt, so this is awkward.
It's legit. Enjoy Wales *

You can take it on its maiden voyage on some proper hills before leaving the land of daffs, leeks and there be dragons
