All I can say for now is that the guy who was offering this bike for sale doesn't know anything about this bike and its components... which then caught the attention of some riders who were eyeing him and the bike. After all, who can build a Bullit without knowing anything about mountain bikes?
I am hoping that the person that you saw using this bike in Sta. Rosa sold it to the person I saw last Sunday. If that is the case, all's well that ends well. But if this turns out to be a stolen bike... then certain wheels need to turn.
let's just hope the scenario is similar to what happened to a friend of mine. rich guy wanted his car repaired. the brother of my friend repaired the car, the rich guy offered a bling bling bike that he's not using for payment.
the brother accepted, but since he's not into cycling, decides to sell the bike at a cost he feels he should be paid.
other than that.....could anyone get the serial number of the frame? maybe we could trace the original owner.
Best thing to do in a case like this is act really interested, and get the guy's phone number. That way if it turns out to be stolen, you can call him up and "make a deal".
what about an entrapment operation with the lespu. ;D
Easy,, were not yet sure if this is a 'hotbike' im sure sta rosa bikers already read this thread.
just recently 2 john wilkie mechanics bikes were stolen. mang erning and dagis. mang ernings bike was stolen right infront of the bike shop. ganyan na sila kabilis ngayon nageevolve na. ;D kumbaga sa software they are updated. so please take care of your precious bikes. wether indoor or outdoor.
best move Santino at least you took picture of the bike. you can also post the pic at the downhillers thread.

if you had posted this matter to inform, that's well and good.
but if it is to present an accusation (the way i see it) then....
it's one thing to inform, it's another thing to "ACCUSE" (see red prints in bold below)
anyways, if we can present concrete evidence of what we say, then a lot of P M T B peepz, savers, to mention one i'm sure can take proper action. if not, please save our accusations.
people.... let's be responsible with our posting, this is a forum read by a thousand or so members. responsiblity should be a rule of thumb.
should have posted this thread on the stolen bike section, there is possibility, altho those people are engage in buying and selling used bikes they nevertheless encouraging, tho indirectly, stealing bikes. guys im not saying that those i saw this morning are fence, pero may possibility di ba? (but theres possibility?) just a hunch, brad saver what do you think?
hey guys, got this reminder before, perhaps take reference also.
That bike's pretty decked out. If the guy who's selling it doesn't even know what his rims are, that's almost a give away that it is stolen.
Someone has to act really interested in the bike, get his contact no. & get as much info about the bike as possible. It would be easy to catch him when there's a lot of info on why, what, when & how the bike is being sold like that.
is this really still on the "BLACK MARKET"?....wawa naman yung owner.... but if there's nobody claiming it's either he really owns it or the owner is super rich that he just bought a more expensive bike...
because thats what people do, they leap and hope to God they could fly, and otherwise we just drop like a rock, and wondering the whole way down .....why in the hell did i jump? but here i am...falling... there's only one person that makes me feel that i can fly... is you......
