There is a pretty nice DeRosa on Ebay, item number 475626185. Worth, in my guess, about $900 tops. However, I looked at the bid history and something struck me kinda funny. The current bidder, "hoelman", has the price up to around $1100. Prior to his bid, "1woeman" jacked the bid 8 times after "1woeman", to the current price. Prior to this, "hoelman" was outbid several times by "1woeman".

so, I checked both the seller "cjbuilder" and "1woeman". Although they live in two different cities in the southwest, they both have the same last name, "Sowers".

Sounds very fishy.

Nice bike, but unscrupulous behavior may prevail.
