    Way too cheap.
    There's a big difference between ripping and skidding. Those who skid don't know how to ride.

    Just the way the listing is written screams scam.

    Yes, what could possibly be someone's motivation to drop $5k on a bike, and then shortly later ask $1.5k? Doesn't make sense, even if the person is strapped for cash.

    I had an all black 2013 Stumpjumper Expert Evo carbon stolen back in April. Its its a full black medium carbon Evo let me know!

    People lie about what they paid or what worth all the time to make the deal sound better. It could be a Comp carbon, which listed for around $3k, and you could get the for $2300-$2500. If you needed quick cash, selling one for $1500 wouldn't be too crazy.

    I emailed asking for pics and never heard back, so my guess is that it was a scam.
