Ask for the shop he got it from so you can make sure it's not stolen.
I'll buy your old bike from you.

The old line

”wow aren’t you in luck, we just happen to have one left in exactly your size”

I remember that line!  The bike my parents bought me in 1988.  The bike shop had exactly what I needed, and clearly none of us knowing anything about bikes and sizes, bought it.  I had and used that bike for about 20 years.  Then when I started all this crap, replaced it.  I'm 176cm and it was a 60cm!  No wonder I nearly had the seat resting on the top tube!  And while that bike shop doesn't exist anymore, it morphed over the years, and the owner was still in the industry and his family own a local bike shop now.  I don't ever shop there.

I know the bloke and I am confident it's not hot. He probably bought it from fb sight unseen and went off his p5 size. He also has had a lot of trouble with his hips so that may also be a factor, then again he does buy and sell a lot of bikes....

I have done a lot of bike fits for a very well off group of blokes, no bike less than 10K even for first bike, they buy and sell off each other or  via the net and the size is often way out
