Its a complete bike, I spoke with him and got more details and photos.

Its something I'd like to buy just to experience the ride, but I don't think I would keep it.

More likely a Chinese replica. Need better picks. Price is too low to be true for a complete bike.

It does not add up, Ax brakes, seatpost, lightweight wheels ect... The wheels alone should be $2,500 and I have never seen a fake set of wheels.

I'm doubtful that anyone with a legit $10,000+ bike puts a simple 1 sentence ad in Craigslist that says "interested live a email thanks" when they are looking to sell it...

This is hilarious! And highly likely to be too good to be true. Maybe turn up with one of your toughest pals to make sure they're not trying to rob you (assuming they're requesting cash on collection)? And if not, double check the local papers to make sure it's not been stolen. If all good then you've got a winner!

I just asked why he was selling it for so cheap and asked for some more photos. He responded "Try to sell it for 7000 but no body want to buy it so I put down to 4000." He also attached some photos of multiple different RCAs. One was equipped with Dura Ace 9000 and different wheels and one was clearly multiple sizes larger than the original one pictured.

More than likely a scam.

Get local address of police station.. just tell him to meet you there ( not that it's a police station) to make cash transaction. I know my local PD has cameras setup all over their parking lot and has actually told the residents to use if to make transactions

Could be a good deal, a fake or a could be a scam.

I'm not really interested in it, but may be someone wants to check it out.

Play it safe if you do.

Scam. People swipe cl pix and post them as their own. Do a tineye search on the photo for starters. Or a search tempest search for the ad title.

There's no way. The wheels are worth that much.
Meet the guy at the police station. Then return it to the rightful owner.
