    $850.... I’d bet on it being stolen.

    Then again, it’s the Al version.

    It's Al, but nice build with Fox bouncy bits. Has a tag on the seatpost, someone needs to investigate (and if it's a large, tell me!)!

    Original price of $3100 means it’s a “R” kit....and in Al it’s gonna be portly.

    Components are gonna be similar to what you got on your Chameleon.

    The bike pictured along the rocky wall is a CF model. No mention of those wheels in the ad. I think this is a scam.

    One of the two photos is just a stock photo. The other one could be as well. Stock photos are typical for stolen bikes, as are ads with minimal or poorly written descriptions.

    It could just be in poor condition but the way it is written suggests to me it is stolen.

    Go investigate, Orange-Countians!

    Nothing really concrete on Bike Index...

    Did anyone respond to the stolen bike alert in @mike post?

    I did. I don't think that's it, as it's a LOOOONG way from Cheshire, but who knows...

    What's frustrating is the lack of serial numbers on the bike index postings.

    Why would they list a new seat, pedals, lights and no other descriptions? Doesn’t sound like a mountain biker to me. Who do I report this to that will actually look into it? OC Sheriff? I’ll start there but if it were my bike I’d want help finding it, maybe it’s not stolen but doesn’t hurt to try.

    Even @mike post from the UK is fake...:the bike in the pic isn’t the same bike. The description says Reba Fork, but the pic shows a BOS fork.

    I sent details to crime stoppers per a link from OCSD. Provided the link and pointed out that the guy even states it’s in excellent condition but linked the blue book site showing nearly double what he is asking.

    That thing is hotter than Hansel.

    I've alerted the two 5010 owners via bikeindex.

    I enrolled today just to do that. And registered our bikes also.


    @Cornholio, @Cyclotourist: thanks for acting.

    Bike Index is pretty awesome, but only if you put the details on it. Needs pictures and most importantly serial numbers (and pictures of the serial numbers!).

    Oh great. I ride the same bike, just large and carbon ... I hope nobody comes up to me on the trails in an accusatory manner, LOL.

    You'd better start carrying it's "papers" with you. :eek:
