    It's a scam. See Akron-Bike scam on eBay.

    The website looks like it was designed with yahoo page builder by my 4 year old cousin. Don't forget the ads on the site and numerous spelling errors.

    Got a link to the auction? I want to make a bid. $1000000 sounds fair, right?



    Their website really sucks the devil's ass, but there are plenty of websites for legitimate bike companies that could stand to use some updating, to put it nicely. The whois was revealing, and there was some nice detective work by whoever it was that called the hotel across the street from the address.

    L@@K, IT'S A SCAM!!! Keep checking your bike on ebay and see how many times it appears as the same or exact same add by different sellers. I was looking at a Klein Palomino XV and discovered it as a scam. They claimed to be in the U.K. The more I emailed with them and started accusing them of a scam there english appeared choppy as if they were Asian. There transactions are off ebay. I reported them to ebay, THEY ARE NOT CONCERNED.
