As a seller on the internet I probably shouldnt even be writing this, but here I go. First let me say that when you buy sonmething on the net it may or may not be exactly what you hoped for. One persons idea of as new may be anothers very used. Expectations of an internet buyer seams to be that of a new car purchaser. Im so happy I got this great deal then two days later have buyers remorse because they come to their senses and realize they will be paying for this car for the next six years and it will cost then more than twice the original sticker price.Now we arent dealing with new cars but that is the best way I can describe it.
The only way to remedy this is to only deal with your local bike shop. Now I understand a good shop is hard to come by but they are out there.And I realize that in todays society we are being taught that a good deal always is better than a quality product serviced by a qualified person, you know the Wal-mart philosophy.
Anyway, My point is purchase on the net if you must, as I will continue to sell. but use your head and get all the information you can before you make that purchase. Use PayPAl or some other wire transfer system for your purchase so if there is a problem you are protected.

Total brilliance! Where did you come up with this information because I for one think it is amazing.

BTW, your use of the word "seam" is actually referencing the bringing together of 2 pieces, e.g. "That chair sure has nice seams"...

You actually needed to use "seem".

Just trying to give you all the information I can give.

While it is true that similar thoughts have been posted before, please remember that people need constant reminders. If his post saves one soul some grief, why not.

The point has been made many times about the place of the LBS in all of this. Some are great, others NOT. So what if someone posts his/her thoughts about it. This isn't exactly a Cal Tech think tank here. It is just people who want to have fun and their spelling is not as good as it should be.

Dissing for poor spelling and caring is a little harsh.
