Don't know where to put this, but are Planet X really selling cracked carbon?
Is this suspiciously cheap or is this just what they go for?
Now removed. So maybe there's your answer!
Ha! Maybe they saw this!
It's not unknown for this part of the forum to be trawled by scoundrels and ne'er-do-wells...
Cheap price, dark photos, no details of the bike other than brand. Anyone missing a Colango? "Want gone quick"
Has anyone ever seen 'Deshaun' on gumtree? All the sales look beyond suspicious but I've seen him selling on gumtree for months now!
The descriptions are barely legible and he seems to have an unquenchable thirst for iPhones!
This guy is classic
I put his number on my phone to check out his whatsapp profile...it is just a pic of an iphone LOL
This one isn't particularly dodgy... but the title and description are unintentionally fantastic:
All 37 or so ads now gone. Did multiple people flag him up to Gumtree or is it just a coincidence?
Seems to be shady. User under month on gumtree.. price to good to be true etc
Is that seat post normal?
Is that seat post normal?
It is factory, yes.
Quite a lot of detail in the description.
Can’t comment much on the price.
Anyone know a "Magnier"?
http://www.andrewmagnier.co.uk/ maybe someone should ask him if he had a bike nicked?
I emailed him a link to it, not much more that can be done.
I've sent him message to check. I hope he is using messager. Would like to check if not stolen and help reunite if it was
Could contact the Leisure Lakes Trek Bike Team too (he may have been with them)
I will give them a call
The Trek Emondo is also on EBay and priced at £1750. Seller has 100% positive feedback.
eBay sale looks genuine. Gumtree one definitely doesn't. Frame size is wrong for one thing.
"Collection only outside CR2 6JP South Croydon this but soon alright condition does have a few rust marks what might need touching up the rackets a bit rusty seem I need to go over that was some wire wall or something that bang and within that about rideable everything works it just needs TLC you say 20 inch frame with 700 see you wills and I think it’s 15 speed"
