What you reckon this bad boy is stolen?!
I don't think so, If it was stolen then unless the thief was a cyclist, why would they bother to include a geometry chart in the pictures?
It is rather cheap, considering the dura ace model is around £4500. But if it was a gift, then the seller is not losing anything

He said he will take £1000, no problems.

The ad has gone so couldn't view it. Did you buy it?

it was this bike: http://www.westbrookcycles.co.uk/bikes-c5/road-bikes-c18/cannondale-supe...
I have the guys contact details.
If I bought I would sell it on for a profit.

Does seem a bit cheap but you never know.

£1000? At 20% of the new value, that sounds a lot like the way my (stolen) S-Works SL3 was advertised - the thieves didn't know what they had, so just googled and copied information (including a geometry chart) off the net. The police target ads like that as likely stolen bikes. Might be worth passing on the details so they can check it against their list...

I didn't want to seem negative or anything but ^ this ^ is what I should have said on reflection!
