    If that is the black one posted recently - definitely something looks off with it, but I'd doubt the photos are even of the actual bike.

    How many have they stolen though? He says he has em available in all sizes. 😁 links to a business in California.

    Tis an odd one to be sure.

    Same scammer lists Specialized and Trek bikes almost every weekend. Any size available :) Just make bank transfer.

    Similar to a car scam going around a few years ago. Pay a deposit to secure a bike to be sent from abroad, but no bike appears

    I doubt it's a stolen anything Id say most likely the bikes don't even exist. The usual line we have a lot of interest and if you put down a deposit via bank transfer we'll hold it for you.

    Yeah seller says the bikes are in their store in Berlin, it’s a scam as above, more so than stolen bikes

    Get an address in Berlin. Cheap midweek flight with an empty bike box. I'll take an SL7 red etap axs in green!

    folks - i've removed the links; if you think a bike is stolen please report it to adverts. linking directly to an ad and suggesting it's stolen is possibly legally actionable.

    i think there's enough info there for people to find any odd looking ads at this stage.
