So I called ebay, and sure enough the legitimate account of someone who was very into knitting had been hacked and was being used to scam sell a bike.
That is what happened to my dad's eBay account last week. Someone started selling 20 Playstation 5 on it....
eBay advised him that it is highly recommendable to lock out of your account everytime you leave their site ESPECIALLY on Apple devices. It seems to be fairly easy to hack into an eBay account if you are logged in your Safari browser on an iPhone or iPad...
Peace! Uli

I could believe it's paint crack. This is an area where CF may flex repeatedly to cause a paint crack. Do you feel lucky?

Those carbon Sevens were a low point for that company - just ugly as sin. Cracked ones are even lower on my list .

If anyone cares, there is a minty one for sale in a LBS here!! ha ha!

54cm Cervelo Aspero Frameset... Not an amazing price, but better than buying a complete bike only to strip it and rebuild it...

The weird thing about them is they seem to generally have been fine from a functional point of view, but Seven decided, for some reason, to use really goofy shaped tubing. If they had just done the same but with round-tubed carbon, they probably would have been quite popular.

So tempting... geometry data is sparse but looks "normal". Also 26.4 mm seatpost?? Probably best to shim it to 25.4 mm.

needs a paint job, but a good deal on a nice frame with a good fork.

Definitely not a 26.4 seatpost. The Pros Closet writers miss the mark all the time. 27.2.

That's a great deal. They certainly didn't charge any more due to the couplers.

The seat tube decal in on backwards.
