Help! Is this castelli legit?

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

I've messaged the seller but they have yet to respond what model it is
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...L:COSI:US:1123

any help would be greatly appreciated

If you receive it and the only tag on it is the "Lycra" tag, you have yourself a nice little counterfeit.

You really should have asked before you bought, but that said, the seller is in America, has 100% positive feedback (over 5k transactions), and doesn't have a whole bunch of Castelli stuff for sale. Probably legit. If you get them and they're fake, send them back for a refund or file a claim with eBay.
