I was searching e-bay to get a price value of my frame I am pondering selling. I came across this add...I do not believe what I see but that bikes looks exactly like the bike I bought...The listing says Aluminum frame set...we all know that Reynolds 753 is steel.
When I bought my bike from craigslist the seller said it was aluminum also...He also said the bike was very light. I know for a fact that the bike doesn't weigh 18.6LBS The bike looks so much like the bike I already bought. The location of the photo looks like the same neighbrohood where I bought the bike.
Is this a stupid coincidence or what? My bike came with the exact same wheels and goofy reflector on top of the handlebars. The saddle is exactly the same. The thing that gets me is the fact that the cyclocomputer attached was the same exact brand that I had. I know Cateye is very common. But the tape marks are in the exact same spot. Could this be a scam? Or perhaps the seller has a duplicate bike...I recently sold the Mavic GP4 tubular wheels that came with the bike...My wheels had reflectors and spoke protectors in the exact same spot as the photo.
I stripped my bike and converted to fixed gear. I am pretty certain that the spoke reflectors/handlebar reflectors are more than likely aftermarket...If anybody is curious about this I can send photos my frame and wheels. You will see that the spoke protector/reflector is in the exact same spoke pattern. I really do not believe this. I removed the front reflector from my wheels. I swear this is the exact same bike I bought...What gives...
