and yeah you're right about the Steve Bauer comsumer bike thing, I've found out a bit about it online.
This leaves me with 2 thoughts,
1 - the dude who placed the ad has a steve bower regular, not-road bike and is either confused about it's components or is flat out lying.
2 - the dude has a real road bike and is confused (or flat out lying again ) about what it really is.
Either way Ive got my folks on the case and I will see what happens, (though it is looking doubtful right now).
cheers for the info
