Ebay 3T Rotundo Team 200$ cheaper, OEM?!? Trustable?

Hi,

I want to buy Rotundo Team. I looked at ebay and saw a seller with rotundos for 86$us (from Hong Kong..). I asked him why it was so cheap, And he told me those were OEM part?!? Would you trust those bars? Are they real 3Ts? If they are real 3T, why so cheap?

Any thougths, recommendation ... would be appreciated.

Thanks

I don't know specifically about the ones you're looking at....but there are lots of fakes on Ebay; even complete bikes! Plus, from Hong Kong, if they were not-as-described, to be refunded, you'd have to send them back with delivery confirmation- which can be prohibitively expensive to a foreign country. Most legit sellers these days will not sell expensive items on Ebay, because Ebay poilicies make it too easy for the sellers to be ripped-off .....so when you see something with a price that is too good to be true...from a foreing country, no less.....I'd be very leery.

Look up the seller's feedback on toolhaus.org -that tells the real story (Whereas looking at the feedback on Ebay itself often hides the truth)

He's going to be banned from Ebay soon.
