Check out these Look 695 prices..scam or what?

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

Check out these Look 695 prices..scam or what?

I did a quick Google search to see if there were any 2011 clearance deals on a 695, and I came across these somewhat fishy websites:

http://ratans.net/products/Look-695-...etCurrencyId=1

http://rejeki-pura.com/products/Look...%252dPACK.html

http://starscycle.net/products/Look-...%252dPack.html

Not only do they offer insanely low prices of these premium bikes, but all the websites have pretty much the same layout. Location is Indonesia.

You have to wonder though. The Look 595 used to be their flagship bike and I picked mine up as NOS for the price they are asking for the 695. Of course, mine wasn't an "I-pack" either.

Indonesia for bike stuff is kinda like Nigeria for Banking.

Caveat Emptor.

Lol..I see.

I wonder if there's a way to find out for sure and inform the Google marketplace people. It bothers me that it's so easy to stumble upon. Someone is going to fall for it.
