Bike for sale on eBay. Not sure why.

The headline for this bike on eBay reads, “29er 700c Single Speed Fixie Brand NEW Thruster Road Cruiser BMX.” It reminds me of some meetings at work where we spend 30 mintues throwing buzzwords at each other.

Extraneous words aside I think the Thruster is a pretty good cheap bike. You can pick one up at Walmart for under $100. That’s what makes me question the ad. The bidding starts at $85, which isn’t enough below new to take a chance. On top of that the shipping is $60 dollars, which puts the total cost well above the price of a new one. Why would anyone bid?
