You, sir, are a great person to work with!

To everyone else, I wasn't sure if a stem had the height I needed, and the Golden Boy there was More than helpful making sure it would work for me before finalizing the transaction. He's absolutely top-notch. You can feel completely confident in his end of the transaction.

It's been said before and worth saying again that bikemore is great to know and great to do business with.

Thanks Jim. Good luck with your wheel build.

And Jim is what keeps the C&V crowd in the Boston area together. I think I am more or less booked into September, but would look forward to a group ride then.

I'm not certain Billy D and Richard F are members here but Paul G is and drops in now and then but I can't remember his forum name

I recently bought a saddle from PatTheSlat. It was a fine transaction, He packed the saddle well, shipped quickly and priced it and the shipping fairly.

As everyone knows @The Golden Boy is awesome to work with. Great shipping, communication, enthusiasm and the ability to come up with bike-bits I didn't know I needed but really love (sweet sweet CDale panniers.)

@Henry III quickly shipped me a nice clean STI Tricolor group, with new cable guides, and nice set of Mavic Open 4 CD rims with Tricolor hubs.

Fender1 is a grail guy..I mean Great guy!

Gomango saved my @ss with a sweat record Ti rear rerailleur after mine cracked. Also, previously help me with Dura Ace goodies for my Zunow build.

Rigormootis, a true professional.

All three are assets to the forum.

YAY for Brockd!!
Like I told him, he was way too conservative when he described the saddle he had for sale.
What came blew my expectations! So beautiful and so well preserved his 1984 Brooks Pro! It even looks a lot better than many new unused ones I've seen!

Thanks again Brock!

A big HOORAY for "jyl"
I really appreciate how jyl made it possible for me to buy his minty Peugeot PY10FC frameset by working out a payment plan for me during a challenging financial period.
Today we completed the deal with a final payment!
jyl helped me realize a longtime dream of finally owning one of these great Peugeot racing bikes!
Thank you very much John ("jyl")!!

I thought I was buying from Steve Whitlatch, but I sent my money to Lisa and got some nice Suntour barcons and Derailleurs from her. I would buy from Lisa again!
