- Dodgy deal for giant defy on edinburgh gumtree?
Ok, so it might be a genuine advert but the spelling mistakes and very low price for what looks like a defy 0 makes me suspicious. Anynone missing one?Posted 4 years ago
OK so the seller has responded and somehow managed to give their own email address, defeating gumtrees obfuscation.
What’s the reason for the sale? That looks like a nice bike, is it damaged? What size are the tyres, and what pressure do you run them at, I’m trying to decide if I should get a racing bike or if it’s too bumpy. How far did you ride to college, did it take long?
Thanks for your help.

Looks like that one was sold in Cambridge on August 21st. Or he’s nicked the photo. Or the ebay guy nicked this guys photo.
Thing is it was listed at £420 on Gumtree last week in Edinburgh so maybe he’s just dropped the price.Posted 4 years ago
Bump for smart ideas, or just ask for the frame number and check if it’s online as stole’d? If it is, then my next move there would be to inform the Polis? There’s no point emailing the previous ebay guy is there?
I just found an iPhone 5 and returned it to it’s owner, so I’m feeling hopeful we can help if this is nicked!Posted 4 years ago
