    Suspicious Craigslist

    Does anyone else find this really suspicious? I was looking for a cheap bike like usual and I saw this. http://pittsburgh.craigslist.org/bik/1990594162.html It might just be that after reading the Ibis Mojo HD stolen story I am suspicious of everything, but I feel that it is.

    Take a look at the ebay auction...i think whoever buys the "bike" is getting ripped off.

    I don't know if it's "suspicious", per se, or if the seller is just a strange individual - but I certainly wouldn't want the bike or the hassle of dealing with the seller. What's with the 'NO BIDS FROM PA. . . . sales tax. . .etc' bit?

    Since when do private sales for used *bicycles* require the payment or reporting of sales tax?

    I don't know but he apparently will sell the bike for $50 cash if you don't use ebay.
