    Yes, he's a fraud, and I report him all the time to EBay. I contacted him to find out what his schtick was...he sends you a bogus email thats spoofed to look official, but his payment button directs you to western union. Somehow he is able to list the bikes under other users names....not sure how he hacks that.

    is that the guy that make up some bogus story thats the bike was a back up bike for the armys endurance racing team or some bullsh*t like that yet only has one photo of the bike?

    it looks like he takes the bike for a demo ride (flat pedals) stops in a alley snaps a photo then lists the bike on eBay.

    my guess is he just finds a photo from elsewhere on the web and posts it as his own. He'd have much better luck ripping someone off if he'd stick to more mainstream bikes like a specialized or trek or something. not trying to give him any ideas or anything though

    I almost bought one of those a while back but remembered that when something seems to good to be true... I'd like to know what his scam is.

    uh oh, looks like another one is posted. this time, a different userID with 0 feedback! And people are actually bidding on it!! No way your first sell on eBay is a 2011 X YBB with 2 pictures, "lots'a eye candy" in the title, and no comments about why you're selling. Buyer beware.
