    $19.98 Including shipping for a 27.5 hard tail carbon bike. Ordered it yesterday on eBay (buy it now) and so far the order has not been cancelled. Today it's listed for $2500.00. They must have gotten the dismal in the wrong place. It will be interesting to see how this works out.

    I don't really plan on getting it. As soon as the first one went through I thought lets get more, but only the first one went through. It's weird so I think they will say sorry, defective product, here is your money back. I'll have to wait and see what happens.

    They are still $19! Maybe closeout frames because they are 26-ers with quick release?

    Its china with zero feedback. I see these ads all the time and won't touch them with a 10ft pole...6000mi pole?

    The seller offering them for $2500 has a 27704 rating.

    If you search for sava m18 under completed items...there are 8 that have 'sold' for $19-24...they are all different user names (variations on a theme, a couple letters and a bunch of numbers)...they all have zero feedback.

    I don't know if they are just phishing for info...or if they get this money from a bunch of different people...do something with it to make profit...then refund the original amount to the duped buyer and move on to the next fake product and user name.

    I often get excited by a too good to be true price, and then see...china...abc9384937 (0) user name...then get bummed :(

    I sent the seller a message, no reply. The item is now listed as removed and no longer available. This provided much entertainment at deer hunting camp. Everyone agreed it was more entertaining than loosing $20 at the casino, which you always do.

    Assuming you went through paypal, or a credit card, you should be able to get your money back. That is the odd thing about this scam. I don't really get how they benefit. I had a friend run into a similar problem when he lost a superbowl bet, and had to buy and wear a green bay jersey. Well, he was going to go cheap as possible...and every good deal he found on the 'net turned out to be one of these china things in which they didn't actually have product, but would do the whole run around with challenging the credit card charges. 2-4 weeks later he would get his money back. He went through this three or four times before he just gave up and bought one at a local mall.

    There has got to be money in it somewhere...or they wouldn't still be doing it,

    Maybe the credit card company ends up out the money :doh:...if so, I don't see why they can't squash the problem.

    Something's not right for sure, I just haven't figured it out yet.
