Well she wants to trade it for my laptop witch is cool but it just seems to good to be true she sent me a pic to my phone and you can see its internal by the way head tube looks. She changed rear rim and tire and sprocket she put on a gold fit laced to alienation to match front and alienation sprocket but says she has other parts (assuming there the originals that were on it) that she will throw in for free ill type up parts list

hmm , well most frames have a logo on the gusset on the down tube , or the name of the company engraved into the dropout

if you asked er to send you the serial number , could you email fbm and they could check the serial ?

Right it such a nice bike im honestly worried its stolen and if i get pinned with it ill get the charge and i don't think i could explain it the cops considering I have already had one in the past

Man if its legit then pick it up !!! Not bad colour scheme either am looking at a fly pantera at the moment can tell its a fly but cannot tell which year the frame is an the seller is just being a dick nana

An if your worried about it being legit then go see it an take a ref of the serial number under be yourself an contact fbm and they will help

I would see if you can get the serial number to id the frame, THEN ALSO call the local police.

That seems like it is too cheap for such a setup, so I would be cautious.

all i can say is that it is cheap and that if ya want it just go for it, any problems and they shouldn't be hard to fix as those parts are nice and strong. If it is stolen take a print screen of the page with all of the details just in case it is so if something were to pop up with the cops you can show them that and then they can go get who stole it

Yeah the color scheme looks great to me. Talking on the phone its just a chick she says its to big doesn't sound like she would of stole it but i mean who knows anymore. Im afraid if ask for serial number if it is stole shell get scared off and if it is stolen I rather get it back to the original owner then keep it for myself you know.

Buy it, if it's stolen and can be returned then you just earned yourself a 250$ boost of karma. Shit the person who it was stolen from may even pay you back or something. Idk, it's a win win. You either get a bike, or you give someone's pride and joy back to them. Small victory either way.

I think he's got confused with hubs and rims, they'll be stock Fit Hubs.
