It means the seller can't work a tape measure. You are going to have to walk them through it, or just look at it. I had a seller tell me he was positive he had a 40 inch frame bike. I tried to walk him through it, but that did not work. I ended up looking at it, it was a 19 inch frame. I can't figure out how he possibly came up with 40 inches. I ended up buying it.
The good news with sellers that can't measure, it usually cuts down the competition, so if you work through the problem, you can get a better deal.
