Suspicious Dallas Craigslist

Carbon Fiber Road Bike FOR SALE

$75 just doesn't sound legit. Anybody closer that could take a look at the serial number and check it out?

the ad sounds bogus as hell.

no frame size, Pinarello not mentioned in title, no reference to DA parts...

AFD or stolen is my guess...

The photos are stolen from one of these sites:
https://www.wordnik.com/words/pinarello
Flickriver: Photos from Glory Cycles (quite far down the page, with scripts enabled).

Also note mismatched headtube shots in the Craigslist ad.



I can't say the ad isn't real, but I find it very suspicious when they use stolen internet photos.
