Agreed. It looks dodgy and going by the questions the seller reckons it's in a warehouse but the pics look like it's in his back door.

Had a couple of guys on the service station on Old Northern Road try to sell us an unseen and unused Scott road bike. These two didn't seem to understand much about these types of bikes - they cleared off pretty quickly when they realised they weren't getting anywhere.

As we rolled up, they were eyeing off an absolutely pristine 70s vintage Ford Falcon 500 GS.

They drive a white VT Commodore wagon, so if you see them - caution!

Saw a weedy guy get on the train at Heidelberg Railway Station this morning wheeling a black carbon road bike - with white and red decals on the top tube. Did not see too much of the bike besides that. Reported it.
Good luck if you're trying to find your two missing wheels.

My bike was stolen during the night of Monday 6th Oct and Tuesaday morning 7th Oct in Burwood. Distinguishing feature addition to your description is that the rims are blue and there is a PowerTap hub on the back. Any connection?

Unhelmeted chav-ish looking chap in North Melbourne today riding against traffic and shouting at cars from the back of a nice-looking Merida road bike. White with green or black trim IIRC. White bar tape and black/white saddle.

Got a photo from the corner, but it's not great. Wasn't in the mood for a punch-on trying to get a closer one. PM if you think it might be yours and I can text the pic through. Small saddle bag visible in photo and might be a giveaway for the owner.
