    Question What is Stinkbidding?

    I haven't heard that term yet.

    Bidding a scam auction into the stratosphere through a dedicated ebay account. If it's up way over what a real bike would be worth, nobody gets taken. Some stinkbidder accounts have names like "ItsAScam", or "Scambaiter2003", or (my favorite) "DieMuguDie". You can't prosecute these guys, so b!tch-slapping them on EBay is about the worst anybody can do.

    I once stinkbidded a Trek potal bike (Lance's own, if you believe the pictures...) up over $250k. I believe that was the auction when "Stinkbiddy" won with a winning bid of over $1million.....
