zero feedback, and not one photo of the complete bike out of about 10 pics... something to hide....

St Clair. :| Quite likely. Other cues are the near zero description.

The other option is the frame is in that many fragments. :lol: :lol:

Not taking that bet, noooo.

Interesting range of stuff he has to sell...

Nah. Druggy'd be happy to sling it for $200.

$2,200 on ebay means waiting around for your hot item to sell - doesn't make sense.

It isn't worth anything like $2200 when you can get a brand new 2012 model for $2499 http://www.bikeexchange.com.au/bicycles ... /102019907 with LBS service, warranty etc.,.

Seller is clueless about price, and clueless about what description is necessary.

Doubt it's stolen - but maybe it's a girlfriend selling the boyfriends bike.

So are you saying only thieves live at St Clair?

Pathetic!

I suppose it is only white collar crime you see on the Northern Beaches.

Looks like someone needs to access this bike and seller to unlock the mystery!

Give me a dollar for every over priced, under described and poorly photographed bike on eBay and I'll take your bet... Heck, I reckon I'd be able to bid on the bike above with the proceeds.

Seriously though, why do people put up such bad listing? It only hurts your chance of selling or kills the price. I don't get it.

That's still stolen...

unless they had permission, in which case you would assume a description.

Not really, the criminals sometimes come here from St Clair to commit crimes. :P

I hate people who generalise. They're all the same.

Norbs, you need to look at Google Maps... Baulkham Hills is about as Northern Beaches as St Clair is. You've got an hour drive to get past Roseville Bridge from both suburbs :lol:

This thread fails to deliver. Clearly not stolen.

As an aside - I would assume Gumtree would be the defacto outlet. Ebay's a lot more effort to set up and more 'trackable'. Gumtree, just get an email address and work out a way to obtain a sim card with fake id, you're away.

I lived in St Clair (and St Marys and Erskine park for 20 years) before I moved to WA, and whilst you say that's a generalisation, why don't you go there and see that it's a sad realisation.

Of course not every body in that area fit's that description. But it is a sad state of affairs out there and it is only getting worse by the day.

I for one am glad to see the back of that place.
