    Okay, let's get right to the point: Are you the Seller on this auction falsely claiming that this wheel (black 36H mavic gao dakar hub strung to an M231) came spec'ed on the MB-0?

    I thought you were implying that I had lied. I am not the seller and have not lied in this thread. If you are stating that the seller is lying because the black hubs were not originally speced on the zip, I don't know, but I'm sure someone around here does.

    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

    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.

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

    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!!!!!!

    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.

    funny dude, actually your sig about "killing an error" is appropriate here.....where a regular VRC poster is intentionally misrepresenting an item on ebay. bad call:nono:


    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. :p

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

    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.

    Am I the only one that finds quoting yourself even more annoying than someone who refers to himself in the third person?

    eric, it's safe to say that BY THIS TIME - the Seller knows it ain't true

    you are right, we all make honest mistakes but once you realize the mistake and don't correct it - that's the point at which it becomes intentional. get it? anyway...

    btw rumpfy, i remember around 8 years ago when you and I were going back and forth over a fair price for a blue ringle stem that i had listed on eBay..I can't remember what it went out for but you were offering me around $35 then $38 then $41....hahahahha:)

    last item i bought from you was a (totally useless) black Halson fork - i didn't say anything 2u and i'm sure i left you positive feedback....that was around 5 years ago

    no big deals

    Here's another LIAR selling mischaracterized MB-0 wheels. I'm sure it's intentional.

    Does anyone know this seller?

    Should we all report the seller for keyword spamming? Maybe Klasse could email him direct - he should have his email address, maybe even his phone number, who knows, maybe they know each other on a one to one basis......

    Where did klasse go now? We have important work to do with this orfan_miracle seller!! Especially if he knows the guy.

    He could be fighting crime elsewhere, I guess.
