    Help me with this Birdy

    Just saw this bike on ebay, is it a good deal (assuming it does not go crazy with the bidding)? It is not in the best conditions but it seems like birdy goes regularly for a lot more?
    I also have a few questions:

    1. Does birdy offer different sizes?
    2. Birdy describes its frame as "monocoque". Does that mean its frame is carbon? the one in the pic seems to be alu/steel.

    TIA.
