    I got a new stem.. I don't like the "mobius" stem that came on my specialized since it's 90mm, 5deg rise. I needed a 100-110mm 0-deg rise and finally found a cheap one in black. I'm happy.

    wha? every auction I see on ebay for bike stuff is more than what a new one costs at a store... maybe im just unlucky.

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...e=STRK:MEBI:IT

    I'm the high bidder on that though..

    yeah this seems to be true... ebay can be the biggest rip off. I have to really watch hard for deals.

    Ebay isn't the one ripping you off, the auctions only get above RRP because the bidders continue bidding coz they think: just another $20, just a bit more. If an item is above what you want to pay for it then don't. Everything i've wanted i've won from ebay, i just wait for the next load of stolen goods

    Ebay has some great deals on some stuff and really horrendous deals on some other stuff.. Just have to be a smart buyer. I was rather happy about finding that stem for $19 because it was in the color, size, and rise I wanted. I've found them online for $29 but that was in a 120mm 10deg rise, which I don't want. So to me, that was a great deal even though I didn't really save THAT much off what I could have gotten an equivalent product for. It was just the fact that it was exactly what I wanted.

    - pair of sun singletrack rims (silver) laced to xt disc hubs (silver) (new).
    - hayes hfx-nine hd (8") brakes, front & rear (new).

    other bike stuff bought off the net, but not through ebay:
    - pair of silver singletrack rims (new). bought in case i wreck my other ones... silver singletracks are hard to find ::
    - fi`zi:k nisene saddle & xt shifters (new, oem products - i ended up finding out they were the parts that were supposed to be for the balfa completes the year they decided to go frames only).
    - xt rear derailluer (new).
    - xt front derailluer (new).
    - 2003 marzocchi z1 fr with 2004 stanchions & other parts (used but warrantied just prior to being bought by me. came with extra springs).
    - truvativ holzfeller dh pedals (new).

    all this stuff was bought cheap. everything cost me no more than $2500 CAD, give or take some.

    Yeah.... I haven't been able to find any really good wheels for a really good deal on ebay... I'll probably just end up having a set built. I already know what hubs & rims I want... I just don't have the money at the moment.
