Postby carrock » Sat Dec 08, 2012 21:16 pm

looking for a roubaix s works frame but something doesnt ring true here, with 2 items from the same seller

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/SPECIALIZED-S ... 416efaa762

Selling on behalf of a " friend who has bought the wrong size frame ".....if I was spending £2600 I would at least buy the right size....

and

selling on behalf of a friend who " bought a frame but never got round to building it "

Must have a few rich friends who casually drop £2500 on something they dont really need....

Rich people aren't smart my friend. They inherit these days and have no clue what to do with the money. They spend thousands on a bike because they want to get fit, then it goes to waste because they can't be bothered. Lol

The roubaix frame is no long for sale. I emailed the seller to enquire why someone would buy a frame of that value in the wrong size, and she advised that it was in fact an insurance replacement. which of course was never mentioned in the ad. anyway, her friend was going to put it up for sale himself. so it will be interesting to say if it appears again, and if it is an insurance replacement, or the wrong size. Time will tell I guess....

Now the owner of the roubaix frame has contacted me directly to advise that he bought it for his dad, who really wanted a Tarmac frame, and he wants to do a quick deal in order that he can get the Tarmac frame.

All sounds very dodgy to me.....
