Great dealings lately with:
We've got a top notch forum here.
hellojoben is commended. Trustworthy, fair and open, he even held up well under my cantankerous old man
act. I enjoyed dealing with him.

Afilado, I don't know what to say about him. His cantankerous act almost got to me lol. I can only say the same things about him that he did about me, except even more so.
It was a great first bikeforums trade experience for me
Deal with purebikes with absolute 100% confidence. You will get exactly what you are expecting with no surprises. He even dealt with my stupid questions with good grace. Highly, highly recommended.

^ +1. I just bought a stem and bars from him and he answered my questions and sent me parts that were even nicer than they looked in the photos.
Just got a super record crankset from afilado, great person do deal with.
-holiday76 is a stand up guy and a pleasure to do business with.
Soma Double Cross DC
I've done business or trades, in my very limited time here, with both RobbieTunes and Duckforcover. Both were lovely and sent me nice stuff I needed. I hope I was equally responsive.
Abarth came to my house and helped me take apart my Shogun, for nothing. He's going to help me put it back together, someday, when I finally finish cleaning it, and I shall buy him dinner. He's a good egg.
You guys are rather charming, when you aren't making "rack" jokes (even then, actually).
JohnDThompson is great to deal with.
(khatfull) is simply FANTASTIC to deal with.
I bought a Club Fuji from Keith a short time ago, and have to say he is just wonderful do deal with. His packing job was second to none, and he keeps you informed every step of the way. His description of the bike was also spot on. Deal with this man with confidence. Thanks again Keith. I would have done this sooner, but forgot all about this thread.
jonwvara is careful and decisive. A man of his word. I enjoyed getting acquainted and doing business with him. A recommended BF inmate.
Had a great transaction with aixaix, Thanks Michael.
I don't think anyone needs me to say Jan Niklojsen is great to deal with, but just in case...A+

bought some Dura Ace shifters from jan nikolajsen
Very friendly and easy to work with, shipped fast, and packaged properly.
- Jan Nikolajsen is a straight-shooter. Thank you, sir!
- KHatfull is to recovering vinyl saddles as Michelangelo is to painting ceilings. I dare you to show me better work! That and he knows his way around a Suntour derailleur or two.
- Thumbs up to Tom Reingold (noglider)!
- Apparently I cannot build up a vintage bike without one or more items from Neal Lerner's cold basement. Neal, you are awesome!
- Pastor Bob is a class act. What else would you expect from a man-of-the-cloth?
Check out KHatfull's handy work on this original saddle from an '89 Giro d'Italia.
Got some Nitto bars from XR2 recently and they look like new, probably because they were installed but never used. Beautiful and Awesome.
Also got some shifters recently from Khatfull, they're fantastic and look like new, but that's because he put the shine on them.
Both great to do business with.
I bought a Campagnolo brake ensemble from Force (Matt) and all arrived safely at my place. Packaging was well taken care of and the contents fully met up to expections. I sure do recommend business with Force. Thanks man
as you all know by now I recently passed along my Shogun katana to Rootbeer who seems to be really enjoying it. the transaction aside from a typo on the tracking number was flawless from both ends. Rootbeer was great to deal with.

forgot about this thread.
i purchased a great Colnago frame from xB_Nut - fast shipping, standup guy
i purchased and traded a few things with ColonelJLoyd - good guy
I've bought sold and traded with all these people and they're great:
I'm forgetting a few, I dont have time to go back and research everyone I've done bid'ness with over the past few years. It's been a lot.
rhm is awesome for sending me sturmey archer parts for nothing not even including shipping
Konaaron Snake is awesome for picking up a wheelset for me and giving them a home while I screw around (that I still need to get from him)
Recently traded a set of pedals with "afilado". Julian is great to deal with.
Michael Angelo has a great sense of fairness. Everything seems to work just right when he's involved. Two recent transactions and I've become a big fan.
