Haven't seen the advert- but Buyer Beware is the motto for buying anything, from any-one. I saw a Kona Stinky advertised recently and I knew the seller. Kona Stinky is a known "Good" bike and this one, from the advert- has had a couple of upgrades, is only a year old and is half retail price. This bike has had "Upgrades"- if you can call putting an RST triple crown fork on it an upgrade- in place of the Bombers from original- The bike has been hacked round the streets with no maintenance for at least 2 years- but you tell the difference between the 2005/4 models, drive chain still works but only just with about every part just about to give way and the wheels have been knocked out of shape so many times- they will not come true and need replacing for safety let alone ridability.
Daft thing is the first person to see the bike bought it. Motto is- if you have something that has a good name- like Kona or Specialised- advertise it for a high price because some mug will buy it.
