    yeah ,,,it's ok to out until you post something someones looking for. No Ritcheys, Fats, Cunninghams etc. Like no one who's looking knows how to search Pretty lame and likely to stay that way.

    If one were to actually read the several opening posts on this thread, it would become immediately apparent that it isn't a place TO out stuff, as well as the whole schtick on why this particular dusty little corner of the interwebs, doesn't take well to it.

    Carry on.

    It's baaaack and, apparently, it got about 50% 'better' than the last time it was unsuccessfully listed.

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...E:B:SS:US:1123

    FYI to those wondering about this thread: This post falls into the "ridiculously priced" and "been on Ebay for more than a year" categories, so it's not exactly a true outing.

    I really, really wish someone would buy that stupid, hideous, red not-a-Ritchey that has been faithfully reposted every week for the last year:

    http://cgi.ebay.com/Ritchey-Red-Bicy...item562e8822b4

    Maybe we can take up a pool to buy it and have it shipped directly to a recycling yard.

    That is obviously a very rare piece from Tom's abstract period. It is almost certainly worth an incalculable amount to a collector.

    with rare paint absolutely... ebay has shown that time and time again... with a big dent, perhaps not...

    truth be told, i put an outrageous number on the bike (and hint... best offer) to see what people would offer.. for a certain price i will sell it, otherwise it is a keeper. i am more into steel bikes and have the opportunity to buy a massive collection of old italian road bikes , english cruisers and a few early and rare mtbs... i thought it better to sell some stuff rather than take as much money out of the bank. that said, i am happy to keep a 'rare paint and big dent{ed}' bike, a certain price is just my tipping / selling point on it (again , i realize the BIY is rediculous thus the best offer portion)

    It's baaaaack. Or...did it ever really go away?

    If you can't sell something for almost two years at prices between $1,000 and $1,500, why not ask $2,000?

    Wanted Syncros 26.8 425 black seat post

    Hi all,

    I'm new here. Not sure this is the right place to list this? Currently building up a 20" 90-91 yeti ultimate. Almost there, just missing the seatpost. I'm looking for a Syncros 26.8 in a 425. If anyone has one lying around and would like to make a deal I would be very happy. Thanks!

    You gotta be eating well at $100 going over seas on that one Actual would be around $70 to most of Europe assuming you are doing USPS at home and printing your own labels to avoid the eBay fees on that. I know this because I just shipped an RTS-1 to the Czech Republic.

    I don't know about Aaron, but when I ship frames I use pipe insulation on all the tubes and pack them super well especially when its going over seas. Typically i'll spend $10-15 an packing materials when shipping a frame/set. Doesn't leave a lot of meat on the bone.

    On international I may charge high initially but I refund the difference if it comes in under the amount I charge. I just shipped a frame to the Ukraine and it cost $80 bucks. I gave the guy a $20 dollar refund. I can't do it that way now because of the final value fee they charge on shipping. Materials, time, insurance, tracking, delivery confirmation. Try shipping one to Australia or New Zealand or Indonesia. It will be over $100 every time. I do the same thing on shipping in the states too. I always mark the actual cost on the postage as well. When people get a discount they weren't expecting they are usually pretty happy. One guy got pissed at me because I took 2 bolts out of the swingarm so I could fit the frame in a small box. Saved him $15-$20 bucks and he dinged me.

    I think I am just going to do free shipping from now on and take my chances. Which is exactly what ebay wants. I just sold 2 items to forum members and shipped for free but they still charged me a percentage of the shipping charge I posted in the auction. Thats B/S.

    I have to say, to Ebays credit they did fix the problem and refunded the fee on shipping for the 2 items I shipped for free. At least they answered the phone when I called.

    have you all seen this? I almost pooped my pants...I though these would have all been in a scrap pile now. This is like finding a Bushido or something. Now the price on the other hand is definitely for the serious collector.

    20 INCH WARP FACTOR FIVE BMX BIKE. $500 OBO. WORTH AT LEAST $900

    Oh I am sure that your BMX bike definitely worth that, especially with the highly coveted disc covers on the wheels and the one piece cranks. All high value BMX bikes have that.

    people are on crack on craigslist. But if you really want to see the creme de la creme of craigslisters post an ad on the free stuff list. Classic classic people!

    Hard to say without pics. It could go anywhere from $500-1,000 depending on what mismatched parts you are talking about and how nice the 'patina' looks.

    I got a minty (nearly NOS) Commando on ebay for $800 shipped recently, so I'd adjust your expectations accordingly (i.e., expect a discount to that)

    Dunno, it's a current model flat bar road bike. Certainly not what the VRC crowd is after, but it's likely less than he paid, and it looks quite unridden from what I can see. Great deal? Perhaps a bit of hyperbole, but not a bad price.....

    Don't know if you guys have seen this seller on ebay, but most of their prices are unbelievable.

    For example, here is a set of NOS Deore thumbies, still in the pack, for $175.
    $175 Thumbies

    Then the same guy has another set of Deore thumbies, NOS, but this time in a ziplock bag, and the price goes up for some reason.
    $199 Thumbies

    And most of the rest of his 7 pages of auctions are similarly priced. Anyone interested in a $6000 Fat Chance Yo Eddy?

    I like how the "full Colnago equipment package" consists of a stem and seat bag. That's pretty much the stuff that makes a Colnago a Colnago, after all.

    I admit I am not the most knowledgeable on the value of older bikes, but $4K for a Fat Chance Yo Eddy seems a tad high.

    Budget bicycle has proven that when pricing complete bikes, they are even crazier than individual parts. Because $4k is a deal compared with this one. Budget bicycle has proven that when pricing complete bikes, they are even crazier than individual parts.

    Ok, so who is taperlew in Cupertino?

    He has been listing the "WTB" hangers. I bought one a little while back and probably paid too much ($40) before realizing they were repros. A few others did the same before the market was sated and they dropped to around $20 a pop. Everyone should be aware these are willfully and dishonestly described fakes!

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...#ht_500wt_1311

    Wording it his "last of the stash" in the listing above further suggests NOS stuff. They are nice reproduction pieces, and I have been happy with mine, but he should just say that they are repros instead of claiming they are WTB. Liars suck and so do intellectual property thiefs.

    I don't think he comes here but I've met him in person and agree with the part that he should say that they are reproductions. I bought mine thinking they're real. I have compared mine from him with my known WTB ones and I still can't tell the difference.

    You can go through eBay and challenge him but I don't see how you're going to prove that they're fake. All anybody can do is give him a neg. Again, I would do it differently but what can you do? It's ebay and I see fake stuff on there all the time. I think there's some fake Chris King headsets on there.

    After I had given him positive feedback but saw them listed again, I asked him if they are fake. He said they are "high quality reproductions" and "I'm glad it is working good for you...I made them better than the originals." Fine, but he is still dishonestly selling them as if they were the real deal.

    I agree there's not much to be done, I just thought it was worth flagging here for anyone who hadn't figured it out already. They are totally nice hangers, but nicer for $20 than $40 for repros.

    Report his items for sale, and indicate that they are counterfeit or reproductions. With enough feedback, eBay will contact him and force him to change his listing.

    Not sure how effective it is, but I heard the report feature works.

    I am pretty sure the seller reads this forum. After the hangers were discussed in the other thread, he changed the starting bid to $20. He sells regulary on ebay under a different name i think. I dont care too much that he did not write wtb repro, it was possiboe to tell they were copies (price, new seller, many) But i care they suck!
    A good hanger is supposed to take stress away from the headset, not to add it. It is cheap metal and cheap finishing. I even had a dream that the hanger snapped

    He readily admits they're fake via mail but not in his add. He said " I guess it's implied" that they're repop's. It's a nice product and I see no need for him to pull the wool over some ones eyes.
