    It's used by shops, to get measurements to build your custom frame.

    It's just a fitting machine. The owner must not know what he has. Notice all the adjustable fittings on it? Why not buy it and start your own custom fitting service.

    Seems silly to put the Campy parts on it but it is a legitimate frame sizing tool

    It's all part of the sales psychology. Which would 'feel' better, getting fitted on a Campy or Wald equipped frame?

    I'm thinking englishe isn't their primary language.

    For someone who has alot of bike parts on ebay that is a pretty
    bad verbage. I'd think hijacked account or bogus auction on
    this one. C record crankset huh?

    I've looked back a month at his auctions and they look the same... format, font, slaughtered englishe etc. Feedback is great too.

    I see the seller also has a "Cinelli Fuso". You would think someone from California selling bike parts would know what a Fuso was. Maybe he's just keyword spamming.
