    There’s something a wee bit suspect about him IMO. It’s not a bike shop, think it’s just a guy (the ads say that swaps for a DH frame will be considered).

    A slightly used Cove G Spot appeared on Pinkbike, didn’t sell and I then spotted it on ebay where it did sell.

    Now he seems to be selling another one using the exact same pictures on Pinkbike again? Just checked the ebay sale and it was paid for, feedback has been left etc.

    I’d mention that to their mods, Pinkbike unlike a certain other forum I could mention takes a very hard line on iffy sellers. Still full of scammers but they do try.

    BR? 😉

    Nah, BR has reduced scams by making it impossible to post for sale ads without breaking one of the 1000 secret rules.

    Mmmm same with the Bandit i’m thinking about buying.
    It was on eBay as a complete bike which sold etc.
    Then on PB for sale in bits by the same chap.
    Its a good price and looks in good nick but the seller wont accept Paypal.
    Its too far for me to travel.
    I guess its the same old thing – if it looks too good to be true….it probably is!

    I’ve seen his ads too but luckily he is near me and I did ask him once about an item and he was up for a meet at his place . So maybe he isn’t dodgy ?

    When they sell on eBay and show up somewhere else it’s because the seller bid up their item and accidentally won.

    I had the same situation, bike on pinknike that had sold in eBay, and the seller told me that himself.

    So the bike on eBay never actually sold.

    Also the guy selling the bandit really isn’t helping himself:-

    PAYMENT IS ONLY TO ME MADE VIA BANK TRANSFER OR CASH ON COLLECTION – NO PAYPAL

    ALSO ANY OFFERS ON THESE ITEMS WILL NOT BE RESPONDED TO, PRICES ARE FIRM AND CHEAP
