    for those just tuning into the show, background context is found here http://forums.mtbr.com/showthread.ph...21519#poststop
    Perhaps they just meant the MAVIC hub was speced on the Zip, and not this exact hub. I'm not the seller, but calling someone a liar when you very well may be misunderstanding their description is not too cool...

    The person that would care if it was the perfect hub for his Zip restoration would/should know that the black ano one is not the exact spec, anyway... Do your homework and don't believe everything you read.

    And in my opinion, it seems like an intentional misrepresentation....so have any of you guys emailed the Seller (VRC buddy of yours?) to remind him/her of the original MB-0 specs?

    That would be the cool thing to do....revise the listing

    The right/cool thing to do is be honest...

    I think you should email the seller. You're the one that started it.

    I have - have you?

    According to muddybuddy, the Seller is indeed a member of this Forum...so assuming the Seller wants to be honest in the listing - we should see a change in the description.

    Remember guys/girls, VRC people are supposed to be about passion not money

    Whats really interesting is that you post asking if the seller is a regular here when you obviously already know who the seller is. Go F yourself. I'm done.

    I don't think it's that big of a deal. There are a few words missing in the sentence and I think the seller's saying the rivendell guys would be interested due to it being a Mavic hub - the hub that the Zip used. Calm down before everybody here puts you on their blocked bidder list. Youre brand new here and already off to an annoying start. Reminds me of someone else. He'll probably be here to defend you shortly.

    That wheel wasn't spec'ed on the MB-0, simple as that.

    The only reason not to revise the listing is Pride and EGO...the last thing you would like to see is for the "VRC" ebayer to revise the listing and make the description accurate. funny

    I couldn't care less if they change it. Never was one to trust 20 yr old specifics on a random ebay ad. Any Zip fan worth their salt knows that's not a stock Zip wheel.

    I'm not aware that a Black 36H Gao Dakar hub "came spec'ed on a 1991 Bridgestone MB-0"

    Wondering if we will ever see the rest of the parted out Zip - time will tell i guess
    ("I also have many other Suntour XC Pro stuff coming down the pipeline from my parted out zip.")

    Implying that this wheel came off a parted out Zip?!
    Those are nice hubs, I have a NOS set built up with mavic reflex's that I run campy eight speed on, butter smooth!

    My point is/was simple - the VRC member intentionally misrepresenting the ebay item...and intentionally misrepresenting mountain bike history - truth hurts bruthah but WILL set us free......we hope

    Wow, everyone needs to go for a ride already....

    FB's got my feeling on this, nailed down. If it's misrepresented to that level (pretty mild) and the buyer has a Zip they are looking to rebuild, it's the sellers responsibility to determine if it's right for their needs.

    Is that wheel off a Zip? Sounds like no. Is it damn close? Yep. Is that good enough for many? Yep. Is it good enough for someone who is totally anal about having every detail, spot on? No, but then, they'd know it wasn't the one they wanted, and keep on searching. Have we all, inthe learning of a new hobby, made some mistakes? I'm sure, all part of the learning process. Do your research yourself, trusting an ebay listing as gospel, is just plain asking for trouble

    My intention was, as Hollister (obliquely) alluded to. It's a discussion of why outing isn't a happy thing around this neighborhood. Can dissenting opinions be aired, of course. Will legit listings that get posted, get pulled out? Yes. Will funny, outrageous ones get left up, cause we all like a good laugh? Yes. Talk about outing. List some really bad ads, it's all good.

    Klasse, you seem like a nice, knowledgeable person. Please just step back, and play nicely. We'd love to have you stick around, but grabbing a stick, and running up and down in front of the cages, zipping it along the bars making a racket, whilst screaming LIARS!!!!!! Is likely to piss off the other animals, and make them not want to come out so you can see them

    Here you can find the original specs on the 1991 Zip http://www.sheldonbrown.com/bridgestone/1991/index.htm

    Pretty straightforward...and not a long story.

    It is the Seller's duty to accurately represent the item he/she is selling - no BS.

    That's how simple it is.

    Trust me, plenty of people agree with this guideline...if you don't that's cool

    BUT I'm done discussing it w/you - nice day.

    People make listing errors all the time. Calling them a liar is one way to handle it. Insisting the VRC crew contact the seller implies some sort of responsibility to do so, when there isn't.

    But a better way is to politely point it out to the seller through the eBay "ask a question" function. That's it. If you get no satisfaction to your liking, report it. Haranguing folks, here, only alienates them from all the ruckus. Memories are long, here.

    You're assuming it was an intentional misrepresentation.

    We all get it wrong sometimes. I'm going to have to add you to my blocked bidder list in case I leave out a minor detail or accidentally get some info wrong. You'll be one of those guys who raises a big stink and fires up a smear campaign and drag my good (well....not that good) name through the mud.

    And since its about 'passion' and not the 'money', I won't miss your business.

    First, I'm not defending anyone, just indicating that, you didn't say I was

    Second. It's a buyer beware world out there, and if you don't approach every private sale that way, you have no one to blame but yourself for the results.

    Simply letting the seller know of the error is cool. Coming on here and swinging a dead cat about it isn't, that's all

    Most people, if you point out an error nicely, respond nicely and actually fix their error to avoid problems. Once I notified a seller of an error in a listing and he pulled the listing. He decided he didn't want to relist the bike and offered it to me at a killer price. I bought and the bike will be displayed here on the list in a few weeks.
    Looking for:

    • Syncros Revolution, drive side 172.5
