That is most definitely a ripoff. The ticket signature complete was $2600 and came spec'd with a fox 831. That is a ticket 30 which is around a $700 bike.

He'll get the point, I believe, when nobody contacts him about it.

I contacted him about it this morning even after he lowered the price. I told him that he was insane.

I contacted a seller a few weeks back who was selling a $230 Wally World bike for $340, letting them know how ridiculous that was & that he would certainly never sell the bike at that price. He informed me that he sold the bike for $300 earlier that day.

I never knew there was a business in buying items at market price & selling them back for more

PT Barnum invented that business -- it's called 'fleecing the suckers'.

Capitalism baby! The Craigslist in Vegas gets to be a war of words when people find out they have been ripped. Some people are trusting of what they read. To quote Mr. T, "I pity the fool!" Its out of context, but it works.

Yeah I sent him an email yesterday just for sh**s & giggles, told him he was my hero if he could sell it at a 50% markup. Guess the BF spam was too much to handle...but not enough to make him honest
