Holy seatpost, Batman! :shock:

I don't mind a lazy advert, as it goes. I think if the seller is clueless, or can't be arsed presenting the bike for sale, it can work in the buyers favour when it comes to striking a deal.

Of course, the flip side of that is that the bike is even more of an unknown quantity, as is the seller - caveat emptor is never more applicable than in the aforementioned incidence.
