    Buyer beware!

    Hey folks just a heads up for anyone looking for a great deal on a mtb on craigslist..This ad is for a bike that just sold for $500 the other day from mesa and is now up for $850 out of scottsdale . It was my old 2006 enduro . That puppy was seriously abused in my early years and I wouldn't doubt if its got no life left. All my early jumping was on it and my early shuttling . Marks are mine and stickers are still on it .Some of the parts were stock parts off my 07 sxtrail and anything low end I could find before I sold it as I sold it cheap . Anyways if you seen it and had a thought about it dont do it muhahahah.

    Oh here is the ad Specialized Enduro M5 fsr MTB mountain bike

    $500 isn't that cheap.

    Buyer beware for the guy who bought it off you?

    No buyer beware for whoever wants to buy it . I sold it in 2008 . You wouldn't want a 7 year old frame that was treated like a freeride bike would ya .

    If you sold it in 2008 how do you know it just sold for $500 the other day in Mesa? I am not doubting you but it seems odd that you have kept track of something you sold 5 years ago... like there's more to the story. Anyway, good looking out.

    he did not sell it 5 years ago he sold it the other day, he's saying that this person bought it with the intent of making a tidy profit when he was listing it for cheap.

    no I sold it in 2008 ...I always look for bikes on craigslist . If any of you recall I have found a few stolen bikes and got them back to their owner or at least got the criminal charged One of those bikes was 3-4 years after it was stolen . To refresh memories the last to MTBR member bikes I have located just by checking CL frequent and having a good memory was a Speci Demo and a custom orange DHR...I was looking for an enduro and have been for a bit but I am after a 11 or newer preferably an evo . So naturally if I am clicking thru the ads and see a bike that looks familiar I am gonna click on it and check it out .

    Also the reason I know it was sold in mesa was because just 2 days prior I seen the ad from the previous seller for $500 Which that person still has the ad up . Specialized Enduro Only difference is the fsr chainstay protectors covering all the shuttle damage have been removed by the new owner.
