Quick to reply before sending payment. Now two weeks after paying no reponse and no reply to repeated emails.

I will post a follow-up if and when I ever get a reply or receive the product but at this point I have to assume this seller is just another 2-bit theif.

Kristan has replied to my last email, I may well have to eat my harsh words of my last post.
This may have been an innocent shipping error but it would have been nice if he would reply to his email. Will follow up again with final result.

Package finally showed. Part/model number was wrong in the ad but it is what I was looking for.

Too bad it took two weeks and a couple of slightly peeved emails before it shipped.
What exactly was the part?!?DeeEight

I don't recall ever listing model numbers in my ads ever in the past 8 years.

Let's take a look at the items you currently have listed for sale.

Perhaps you simply don't understand what a model number is.

The second listing is for an Oryx Desert Dueler 99. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe that Oryx is the brand, Desert Dueler is the series and 99 is the model number.

Let's skim down a few items...

Here we have a listing for Magura HS-22 Hydraulic Brakes. In this example Magura would be the brand and HS-22 would be the model number.

As we go down a few more items we find a listing for Scott handlebars. One of the MODEL NUMBERS you have listed is AT-2, and the other is AT-3.

The item I bought from you was listed as the AT-2 handlebar. Once again, the MODEL NUMBERs are listed as AT-2 and AT-3. When the part arrived, the factory sticker still attached to the bar read AT-4.

Keeping in mind that I am perfectly happy with the item, you still listed the part number wrong.

My main problem with the transaction is that you ignored my emails until I got snotty with you, which worked because you did eventually look at your shelf and confirm that you had never shipped the part.

I probably wouldn't have posted anything here if it had not been for the other user who also had a problem with you. After seeing that I figured I would do the other forum users a favor and let them know that you seem to be a bit of a flake. I'm sure you would appreciate it if you were on the buying side.
that's not what I'd call a model number 'dude'DeeEight

A model number would be like FC-M900 for an XTR crank (which to people who know shimano parts, they could identify
precisely what model year range the part dates from).

I list model NAMES... and AT-2 and AT-3 were the NAMES of the models !

As for the handlebar, the ad was for Scott AT2s and AT3s, the photo was for AT2s and AT3s, and the bar you got was the correct one was it not? The fact that the distributor I bought the bars from misslabled one of the bars doesn't alter the fact that I correctly described and identified the stuff in my ad which you bought (I haven't owned or sold an AT-4 in about 5 years).

Of course if you don't know anything about Scott bars and the various models they've produced, that's really not my fault is it?

AT1s were the flat bars, AT2s the bar with single-position end, AT3s bar with dual-position ends and AT4s had a full wrap around section that connected at the front. There was also an AT4-Pro which had a different curve to the front section. Plus the various TX series bars in the same number sequence which had 26.0mm center sections designed for hybrids/touring bikes and road stems.
Wow! Isn't this a pleasant fellow to deal with?CallMeClyde

As I said in my last post, or did you read the whole thing before you started ranting?

The bar is what I wanted, I am happy with the bar.

The factory sticker on the bar said AT-4.

Why are you still arguing?

goofball, and what did you buy / pay for? Amazing lack of detail there. How do I even know you were a customer of mine?
