This guy posted a 2002 Giant TCR One for sale on 4-6-02. I committed to buy it only hours after he posted it. He agreed to the sale and we started the process of procurement. After a 12 minute phone call to Vermont from Alabama, he tells me he decided to sell it to a guy at a bike shop he used to work at. I have worked at a bike shop before and I have never heard of one that is open on a Sunday. Do not trust this guy.

This doesn't add much to discussion, but there are 5 bike shops in my area open on Sunday, and there are only 5 bike shops.

Note: the seller has the right to change his/her mind, if he or she can go local go for it. I would too.

Your only legitimate complaint seems to be that he renegged
on an agreement. But that's dishonorable; good enough for me to ignore DT's future sales offers. Thanks.
