    I find the price highly suspicious, but I admit to being clueless about spotting brands and obvious wear. It is a little grubby.

    It's a copy of an Ecotaxi by Maxpro. I have the original and they are the best bikes available. They were copied really badly in London as the Ecotaxi is the bike that everyone wants to rent. The main problem with the copy is that it's not very strong and well aligned. The frame metal is a bit thinner, the dampers would snap and the welding alignment was poor so the thing never rolled very well. It would be a strip down and rebuild if you wanted to buy it. The originals hold there value and change hands for about £2000 depending on quality.

    Buyer beware.

    If you are serious about getting into the game, buy the best bike you can afford.

    Thank you Tikki, I did think it looked a lot like a maxpro but as you say the ones on here run at around £2000-2500. I saw that bugbug were selling some of theirs but no-one seems to be manning their facebook at the moment.

    I would steer clear of buying any pedicab from London.
