    Dodgy ebay shop? Too good to be true?

    Hey all. What do you think might be wrong with this:

    Alu-Mountainbike-Hardtail-MTB-Shimano

    Check out his shop as well. It seems they're using the same frame and attaching some very expensive parts on it. Do you think it might be worth the shot?

    I am not spamming here! Trying to get some opinions on whether this is legit. I mean, could it have a very very very ****ty frame? Is the rockshox dart fork a problem? Plz help here.

    I had to do a double-take. The pictured bike is a hardtail. The picture of the rear derrailleur also shows a Horst Link. I was like "Whaah?"

    I looked at the seller's other products and here's where his picture came from:

    Its obviously targeted at new riders who have no idea about anything except that XTR is top of the line.

    that adjustable stem is where its at.

    that way, you can not only rotate your your barends vertically, you can also do the same to your brakes and shifters.
