Or maybe I wasn't very nice.
Saw a listing for an overpriced gas-pipe bike that someone had some barcons on at one point. I called and asked him if we was interested in parting out the shifters and possibly the crankset. He seemed to be contemplating it then asked me how I thought he would sell the rest of the bike with the missing parts. I suggested he could repost it in the Boat section.
Yeah, that didn't go over too well... it gets boring being nice all of the time.
