The fork doesn't look right. No serial no. label on the fork. The word "Fluid Ride" on the inside of the fork seems off and too much red painted on the inside.

The bottom bracket face is not supposed to be painted black, just bare alloy.

There was a link awhile back about how to identify the fake : https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set ... 529&type=3

But this frame looks like it's been updated with a newer paint job to make it look similar. But I am not 100% sure unless we get better pics.

Like everyone said, if the price is too good to be true, than it's not.

Well, it looks like someone bought a fake one then: the auction is over, item sold.

just like on the facebook link, the pics on ebay on the seat tube say, "you won meddonize your performance" instead of "you won't recognize your performance". so it's a fake.

and all this reminds me of a long standing desire: purchase (real) Time RXRS frameset, remove all decals, apply my own design for Time graphics. :? The standard graphics from the factory are not to my desire.

There is already a fake Colnago EPS. It's been out awhile. Time is the newest fake OEM frameset.
