Well, I am bike shopping on ebay ... if I win this I will pay someone close a few hundred dollars to go pick this bike up (not far from Chicago ...ERK?) ... I'm pretty sure it is too good to be true, as the wheels alone are 1850 new and the person has a buy it now for 2000 bucks ... guess I shall see, but this is a $8000 or more bike new.

Not sure what happened with the auction, but if you end up buying it or want someone to go verify it is the real deal let me know.
