Questions received when selling a bike

I received this question about a bike I am selling on a certain website. The bike is a 42cm size one that Kylie used. I have also included my response....
 
Dear James,
I am a 6 foot 5 inch - will I fit this bike?
Regards,

Dear Mr Speeder,
this bike has 19 more gears than you are used to and a ladies saddle.
 
If you run a 150mm slammed stem and some mad offset in the seatpost it should be right for you.
 
'Intelligence Services' - now you're really taking the pi55!!

James, you need to work in a bike shop - the right size is always the size that's for sale.

Have you seen the Pig that S.Speeder actually rides? It has a lamp-post, not a seatpost!
