    Cervelo TestTeam Winter Jacket on eBay

    Hi folks, 

     I am curious if anyone has experience with this seller and item on eBay. It is a great price for the jacket if it is in fact good enough for winter:

     

    http://cgi.ebay.ca/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=280416371551&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT

    Any feedback would be great.

     Thanks,

     It's an obvious fake due to the price and location sold (Taiwan).  If you're OK with that, it is a good price.  Beside it not being an original Castelli, I just don't trust anything/anyone selling out of Singapore, Phillipines, Taiwan, etc.

     I agree it is probably a fake but here is what I do not get (and excuse me if this is naive) but if it is a fake, why does Castelli or Cervelo try and shut them down. I know they cannot stop all the fakes but a least the eBay ones since they are so easy to find....

     There's no doubt it's a fake.  I believe the reason Cervelo/Castelli and other corporations don't go after them is twofold.  I don't think the the laws that govern trademarks/patents are the same or as easily enforceable in those countries.  Any law(s) broken likely occurs when they ship said item and it enters the USA.  However, it probably isn't worth the time, effort, and $$ to go after them. 

    Compare the jersey from PBK in this link with the one on ebay and you can see the differences.  Enlarge the photo on PBK and compare it closely side by side with the fake.
