    Don't buy from discountbicycle603 on ebay.

    They sell open box/used items as new and are difficult to deal with for returns.

    I purchased a Shimano 7 speed freewheel listed as new. Got the correct packaging but the part was a 6 speed freewheel in the box. Been going back and forth for days with the seller where they basically are asking me the same questions that I already answered and have not offered any resolution.

    Should have read feedback on seller because they have a track record of selling used items as new

    They are also a brick and mortar store Berman's Bicycle in Keene, NH

    Just to update the situation. I resolved this situation with the retailer. It turns out that the packaging had the wrong retail label put on it. The factory box was for 6 speed freewheel which is the correct part that was in the box but it incorrectly had a retail label marked for 7 speed. So it was an honest mistake and I was able to work with them to get the correct part.
