So many times Ebayers forget to post vital information. I've seen hundreds of auctions with no size mentioned for frames, steerer length on a fork, stems, seat posts and handle bars. Buyer beware of the clueless!

I love it when somebody really screws up a description or fails to post a photo. I spend 30 seconds emailing them a couple of questions and almost always get a timely response (because nobody else is interested). Sometimes their answer is equally clueless or it's simply not what I need. However, I'll sometimes hit the jackpot and will be one of the few bidders because nobody else will deal with them. This is one of the best ways to get great deals on eBay. The rest of the time it's strictly supply and demand when it comes to bike parts.

The converse also applies... "lies of ommission"

One man's "great shape" is another's "complete garbage"
