or he is a genius marketeer and knew that relisting and telling people not to watch would generate a lot more interest and discussion about the listing, resulting in even more watchers and potential bidders.


perhaps he has seen the response that Retrobike for sale threads with nothing in get?

if he's worried about it going too cheap, why not just set a reserve :roll:

i bet he's huge fun at parties.

oh, and i'm watching :)

actually i will take back my comment about him being a genius,

just had another look at the listing:
1. no mention of frame in the title
2. no mention of mountain bike in the title
3. terrible pics
4. assy description, sounds like he got out of the wrong side of bed,


he's not really selling it to me

therefore i will keep watching and not bid, lol

Exquisitely put. Always slightly confused when people are 'agressive' in their ebay listings. Isn't the point you're meant to sell things!!

Anyhow askeda couple of qs, sadly this winner isn't posting on his listing. Let's see if someone on here wins it. If they do they will have to inherit the title Lysander has bestowed on the owner of this fine bicycle.
