Was this a steal?

I'm a little new to bike shopping but this looks like a sweet deal. Full Ultegra, carbon fork, Aksium wheels, $600. And it has eyelets for a rear rack. Is this a steal or am I crazy?

edit: forgot the link...

maybe that's why your first few bikes should be from a bike shop?...

I think he was making a reference to this story rather than implying that the auctioned bike was actually stolen.

I know, I just meant that if the deal's too good to be true, one would rather stick to a LBS bike..
