I'm one for three on ebay shipments as a buyer. (One good, two bad, really bad). Look for feedback that they have sold and shipped many bikes. Myself, anymore, I don't take a chance and go for ones I can pick up in person.
The worst one was tossed loose inside a bicycle box, zero packing, nothing! And the handlebars were loose in the box, so they pretty much destroyed the frame (bike shipped from Seattle). Sellers response: "I used a bicycle box." I put in a claim on that one.
