Suspect GT Karakoram because this is my photo from when I bought it new, it even has the city map showing on the top of the bookcase of where i'm from :?

reporting it to ebay seems to be the way so be aware.

That is very spooky - was that photo in the public domain somewhere, and they have just borrowed it perhaps? If not, then its even more worrying...

EDIT: As I suspected, if you type "GT Karakoram" into Google images, its the 4th image which comes up!

Yes it is, and i don't mind someone using it for reference, but to actively show this image as the bike you will receive on an ebay or private sale is wrong.

EDIT :) picture changed and an apology from the seller admittedly just been lazy :roll:

Not sure, maybe if it was mint.
I probably wouldn't pay that (cos I'm tight and a like a bargain too much).
Its probably worth it as a bike and cos of the spec but you could get something a little more
interesting and less mass-produced for a bit more (like an early Avalanche).
