    Seems like a really shit scam, if thats what it is, paypal will always get their money back.

    As its on a bikepacking blog I'm guessing a bag goes in the triangle of empty space.

    Thanks. I think thats the same item but from a different seller. Its essentially someone else saying they like the product.

    Ad detail indicates pre-owned in contrast to pics that give the impression of new.

    Really? Can't see where it mentions that. Can you highlight it please?

    As I say not too concerned as eBay buyer protection pretty good.

    Same reason I've lusted after them. Tradies bloody love them.

    I'm leaning more towards grey market than fake but who knows. Even with import duties its not a bad deal, plus the chance that I won't have to pay them (bought plenty of items before and only mobile phones and bike wheels have been stopped).

    Either way I was looking for a cheap tool so would've ended up with something similar if not. As long as it works. Plus ebay's buyer protection is pretty good.

    I know this is ebay but if this is right its a good deal.
    Makita Impact Driver - £30

    Cheapest I can find online is £60 for body only. This one mentions '...with 1 x 3Ah Battery Charger & Mak Case'

    I ordered one. I'll let you know if I get ripped off.

    Are there DT shifter braze ons?

    Could it be possible the front mech was operated by a band on shifter on the seatpost? Being a LoPro bike.

    EDIT: Actually that won't work. Ignore me.

    My guess is it was pre-drilled or drilled in error and never meant for a FD.
