Does appear to be too good to be true

Doesn't everyone sell their bikes super cheap when the wheels are slightly out of true?
I also scrap my cars when the ashtrays are full. Perfectly reasonable behaviour.

why wait for the wheels to get buckled? a puncture's enough for me to fire up ebay

Cleaning your bike isn't worth the trouble, stick it on ebay, and you'll get PAID not to!

Wow, you guys go to extreme's, punctures and cleaning.......ONE tiny piece of girt on my shiny tyres. Thats it, the bike has got to go, its not ridable, safe or nice looking anymore

Well, in these tough economic times, I think we can at least afford to blow off the grit.
But I suppose you're right, anything that needs physical removal from any one of my bikes can only mean only one thing...
(I think Gkam and I will have to fight over who has exclusive ownership of this little guy: we can't both be evil.)

You can have him
I think that might be why I have so many bikes. I should learn to put up with imperfections, but being Mr Perfect, Its difficult

Old Ebay trick. A low reserve and a sniper mate get the bids buzzing.

Yeah, everyone will be watching that because it looks a bargain, the seller and a mate will then inflate the price to a reasonable value as it get's closer to sale time and hope that a few people stay interested.

Somebody once tried to steal one of my bikes by repeatedly hitting my D-locks with a big hammer didn't do anything to the locks but did buckle one rim and put a big dent in the side of the other rim. the oik ran off when challenged by a station staffer Now I'm not suggesting but

I was thinking that they were buckled during the ride-it-like-you-stole-it journey away from the cafe.
A clubmate had his nicked at half seven on Sunday morning! He'd nipped in the shop for flapjack before setting off. Talk about opportunist.
Last night I would have considered trading a very loud baby for a really nice bike.

Everyone still watching this?

I don't think anyone will be seeing money for this with the dodgy bids
