Nah, that's Kosher. Look at his feedback; dodgy scrotes don't describe (£220) rims as never having been "laced".
He knows he's got a lovely bike there!

I've exchanged many emails with the seller when she posted on the forum. She sent me exactly the same photos as in the listing. Note the TBG sticker on the seat tube. Pretty sure it's a 1990 when Brodie's featured in the Kona catalogue.

It's nice and it's rare. It is 1500 euro nice, but can't see anyone in the UK buying it. It needs Fat written on the down tube for British punters. :roll:
The mint sauce sheep was very apt.

Fair enough,

I guess it was mainly the minimalist description, spelling mistakes and very little feedback that rung a few alarm bells.

Having looked at other items it all makes sense now. Better safe than sorry, especially with a bike of that pedigree!

Sad but true.

Not sure it's worth £1500 though, rare or not.

Really? I think it's ace...it's the price that's the worry not the name! What size is it anyway? Looks pretty big with that headtube...and is it a 1990 in that colour scheme?

It's proper nice anyway and as you say, rare.
