WHATS GOING ON TODAY?!?!?!fishhead90

What has happened to MTBR? I remember when I could use this site in complete confidence of the provider and users involved. I remember a time when people spent more time buying, selling and riding than trying to rip each other off. I remember when you could sell a bike with out getting a bunch of fake checks first in hope for that one buyer that is willing to pay a real dollar for a good product. I remember a time when you could tell another user your address and phone number and not worry about what they might do with it. I remember when a bike sale was not just a transaction between two individuals, but an extension from one person to another helping each other, have a laugh or two, and possibly making new friends with the benefit of a few bucks. Now all you can think about is how bad the person at the other end of your e-mails is trying to screw you over. But the worst thing of all, I remember a time not too long ago when MTBR was a community of people who loved to ride, not stupid f#*kin 48 year old internet buffs that do nothing but sit in the basement of their parents house trying to make a quick buck. For gods sake I can't even turn on my damn computer with it being bombarded by Trojan horses, viruses and what ever the hell they can come up with.

Where have all the riders gone. Where have all the people that want legitimate business gone. Any one that has used this site for the past couple of years knows for a fact that buying/selling a bike or part was almost fun. Not sticking you neck out waiting for some guy to milk you for all your worth.

My name is JP, I just turned 18. I have been trying to sell my balfa minute man for the past month now and all I have gotten was bull s#!t e-mails, scammers and fake checks from chumps like mailslimgee3@yahoo.com or globeauto_rider dot whatever. I may not be very old or wise beyond my years, but I know one thing for sure, that I am discussed and fed up with punks like these destroying a potentially good experience. For all you lagit sellers and buyers, more power to you, and for all you jerk offs out there trying to kill off any rare species of honesty . . . . . F%@K YOU!!!

Today, Friday October 31 2003, I am still trying to sell my limited edition Balfa minute man with no luck yet, but I will still keep trying, because I know that somewhere out there, someone is willing to buy it. So if any of you lagit buyers are interested then check it out . . . I think it's a really cool ride.

I once heard the saying "No one person can do everything, but every one can do something" and I do my best to live by that.

This is my something, and I encourage all you to do the same.

LIVE LONG, RIDE LONGER
