First i have to say he is not all bad. He has some good bikes in his stash. The bad however he is a big liar. He would say all kinds of untrue things to trick you to buy his bike.

Before meetup, i already told him i want a good brand steel mtb. Then...

Scene 1

Met him downstairs, he showed me an MTB with oversized tubes and thick welds.

Him: "this is good bike, aluminium"

Me: "i am looking for steel"

Him: "this is steel"

Methinks: are you sure?

Me: "just now you said aluminium"

Him: "i was refering to the stem and handlebar"

Methinks: what the f***, who defines a bike by it's parts?

Me: "so is it steel or aluminium"

Him: "aluminium"

Him: "why not aluminium...aluminium good what...steel can rust"

*rolleyes*

Scene 2

I went to his house to browse his bikes. Saw a few good brands MTBs like Raleigh and Fuji.

I saw one with a bigger wheel size.

Me: "is this 26 inch fractional"

Him: yes

Me, after inspecting the tire: "this is 700"

*rolleyes*

Scene 3 

So i asked to test the Raleigh hybrid with 700c wheels.

Me: "is this steel"

Him: "yes"

Then as i was just about to mount it, i saw "6061" on the frame.

Me: "this is aluminium"

Him: "this is steel...how do you know it's aluminium..."

Me: "6061 is aluminium"

Him: "is it? how do you know?"

Me: "you said you are professional bicycle repairer, but you don't know 6061 is aluminium?"

Him: "that's my father, i only market"

*rolleyes*

Scene 4

So i said no and he went up. As i was walking away he came down again and offered me Aleoca.

Him: "you want steel right? i have the aleoca full suspension. that one confirm steel"

Me: "aleoca canot trust one"

Him: "why cannot trust...aleoca good what...suspension good what"

Me: "bye"

Haha, he sounds more blur blur, clueless and incompetent than deliberately dishonest.

perhaps he is training for a sales job at the vertex

Peter, Ooptimizer@yahoo.com"> Ooptimizer@yahoo.com is really a liar.

My husband and I saw a bike we liked and messaged him through gumtree.

He confirmed that he still had the bike, and he replied to my email with his details. 

I again sent him the picture of the bike and double, tripled checked that he had the bike... he confirmed via email, and I have the evidence to prove this.

*All this happened on the same day.

When we got there, he showed us a totally different bike, and claimed that he just sold the one we wanted.  He tried to sell me this totally different bike, but we refused.

He is a liar, and he had my phone number, and I have his... I am so enraged right now, I almost want to post his cell phone number.

I should have taken a photo of him and put it on my facebook.

Please dont buy any bikes from this guy!!! he is truely a liar.  You have to ask yourself why he can't put up a picture of the actual bikes he is selling (instead)???

Hi would anyone happen to have ooptimizer's contact number, and if you do, could you PM it to me? Im negotiating a bike purchase from him but he is avoiding my question whenever I ask him for his contact details, and I'm getting worried after reading the poor experiences of transacting with him. Thanks in advance and have a great day ahead

I think just don't bother buying from him. Not worth your time to go there and the bike you want is no more.
