I came across this when I was searching for Cannondale stuff.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...tem=3659787988

I personally would never pay this much for this bike, or all the others this guy has listed. Hmmm......

Yeah, as I hinted at earlier, I think he's just a tad overpriced.

P.S. Check out the names of the high bidders.

Obviously someone is very bored and has turned to eBay for entertainment. This is simply too outlandish for even the most transparent of scams.

I got a good laugh out of that one. Did anyone perchance check out the first bid?

The entire auction is a scam, the bid prices are huge
so the idiot who posts ends up having to pay
(never happens) e-bay whatever percentage they
charge of the final price.
No one is really bidding on a bike that doesn't exist.

(did that whole thing make sense?)

This bike's up to $10 MILLION DOLLARS muhahahahaha!
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...&category=7298

I don't know about you but for $10 million, I can BUY lance armstrong.

$1 Million - http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...category=27948

$12,000 - http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...category=27948

These 2 people, nveniossatbay and latzewo both have multiple auctions above $10K, 0 feedback and request either wire transfer or personal check to your friendly nation of Nigeria.

I wonder what happens when I win the auction for $10 mil and I don't pay. Ebay will still deduct their 2% or whatever fee from the seller's account Hehehe.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again. DO NOT GO OVER $1.5 MILLION FOR A BIKE WITH ULTEGRA. Nuff said!

Well, I've been Ebay'ing for several years now and this is nothing out of the ordinary.... especially for a XTR equipped rig. There are people out there with lots & lots of money...

Hey, I really wanted to be sure I didn't get outbid. lotzewo sells a quality product.

I wonder what the seller thought when he first saw that bid...
