7 lb roadbike.

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Can I just give him my credit card number and let him charge whatever he thinks it's worth?

It's less than 7# even with the reflectors, that's a marvel of modern technology

It's like those guys that buy a Wally bike and tell me that it weighs "like 5 pounds".

Wait... read it again... It doesn't "weigh" less than 7 lbs. It "ways" less than 7 lbs. Very simple confusion. If it ways less than 7 lbs its doesn't mean the same as weighing less than 7lbs. A tripple chainring and 58 cm tall... that thing most definately does not weigh less than 20 lbs.

the frame and wheels are really made out of foam and painted to look like a c-dale.

but honestly, there are some 7# fixed gears.

I think they should work on spelling at the federal penn, the one bidder is most likely a shill, probably a cellmate.

In keeping with the typos, I'm sure he meant way less than 17 pounds.

Maybe way less than 27 pounds... Looks like a 2006 Synapse Alloy 4. Tiagra parts mix, CXP22 rims. Not super-lightweight components.

I think the auction is probably not a fraud. Just not a very well run auction.

Maybe it is one of those cardboard cutout things like you can buy of movie stars and such. Like the "ways 7 pounds".
