Price seems a bit low. They've got a picture from Kona's website and haven't responded to my request for more pictures of the actual bike.

$350 is too good a deal for a 2016. Although posting a serial number?? Looks like a 2015, but the green is off

Was REALLY excited for a minute but that's not my stolen 56cm (custom SS build).

No doubt stolen at that price. Fucking thieves.

You mean a aukshun biik? Baut at poleec auktsion?

Anything's possible, but I'm just putting up a picture and copies if the true owner is missing it. Not calling the cops or anything.

Why would a "biik tief" trying to sell post the serial number of a stolen or dodgy bike? Its like advertising to the "real owner" to come and get it.

Also, there are some identifying clues in the background of the picture - an object with VSG Media (a Van marketing firm) stencilled on it … the seller could have saved themselves some trouble by just posting a pic from the Kona website. Could be a not-so-bright crook, but I'm just sayin'.

It is a 2015. I'm not saying it's stolen but I remembered DrewM saying his was stolen and the price on this one just sets off to many bells.

I agree … its too low. Still kind of weird that the poster made such an effort to include irrelevant but incriminating info in his post.

Look like pic was taken in a school hallway.
Maybe a student trying to dump it.
Spelling in ad is terrible. Maybe ESL student?
