Bit out of the ordinary for me I just grassed a crappy ebay bike up!!

I think totally misleading (even if it does kinda state what it is)

Really?

He's listed a Dawes with a paint job as a Cervelo.

I had to read the whole advert before I found the last line.

Nice one Dave.

buyer beware.

i know what you are getting at and am in no way having a dig at daj, just pointing out that this is a case of reading the whole ad rather than just the headline.

tis a little different than the 'here' we have a supermarlet fram with cannondale stickers hope you notice that add.

Yeah it did... and the seller is whinging on the ebay discussion forum about a case that's been raised against him. It beggars belief.
