Ooh, looks like I'm selling the Cube already.

Postby dynamicbrick » Sat Jan 19, 2013 17:48 pm

So on Tuesday morning the Cube turned up, and I lurved it and hugged it and licked it and told the missus to sleep on the sofa.

viewtopic.php?f=40044&t=12899951

But today browsing eBay for some bottles and cages, I notice I now appear to be selling it.

Would you bid on it?

Feedback of 1, done 70 miles on a £930 bike, and starts the bidding at £90?

someone has used his photo to create an ebay ad, possibly for a bike they don't actually have. I'd report it to ebay pdq.

Someone has used my photo on their listing. My heart actually skipped a beat when browsing ebay - last thing you expect to see if your own bike on there.

The other thing I've just noticed is that they've listed theirs (if it even exists) as a Cube Peloton Race - which is an entirely different colour scheme and spec from the Pro.

Well there's not a surprise - eBay 'report listing' option has nothing for stolen or imaginary item...

I always report stolen photographs on Ebay.

I had someone list their item three times with my photos before they finally got the message and took their own. It was a problem because I was selling several of the same item, and people could be confusing my items with theirs in the listings.

What option/category did you use to report them?

They must have nabbed the photo from here, as it doesn't show up on Google image search.

Looks like your wife got fed up of your new bike pretty quickly.

How much would you take for a buy-it-now option? Would do me for a cheap roller hack/turn it into a fixie. :D

people should learn how to watermark their pics when they publish them online. Would stop this happening.

I had the same issue with images when I was selling a Sugino chainset. Using the 'Ask Seller Question' option I've asked why they are using somebody else's image.

I didn't in the end. Found some Cube overshoes which are possibly the most over the top hideous items this side of team kit.

So, of course, I had to have them.

Those over boots are truly horrendous. They would go perfect with my shirt and mits my wife bought me!!

Indeed.

Which is exactly why I got them - they're so awful, so very 1980s German.

Now I just need to grow a mullet and rig up a stereo on the bike playing some Hasslehoff.

Nothing can touch the awfulness of those Discoboots.

Bottle cages will be when the weather warms up sufficiently to warrant lugging water around with me.

As you have a thing for people using your images, I found this one of you wearing your new overshoes :wink:

Sorry I couldn't find one of you on your bike!
