dodgy roubaix

Postby carrock » Sat Oct 06, 2012 18:36 pm

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Specialized-r ... 500wt_1361

Allegedly a 2011 roubaix pro- except that 2011 bikes had internal cabling

And the 2010 bikes had a different colour scheme

It is a 2009 bike, with a sofa saddle- just like all the serious riders have....and to be honest there is precious little info, which makes me think the owner is either a thief or a halfwit, or both

Hmm...someone who seems to have money to spend on an ipad but not know the difference between then and than. Very dodgy indeed.

Point is that someone is selling a near pro level bike without knowing anything about it, even when it was built. Or is trying to mislead a potential buyer by passing it off as 2years younger than it is. Either way, not the way to advertise on eBay I,d say......

hmm 'then' and 'than' could be an iPad just auto spelling.

I just dropped in to this forum as I have been looking at 2nd hand bikes and there do seem to be some dodgy descriptions on Gumtree for women's specialized bikes. Thought I'd check if anyone's had any stolen.
