    I think those are latex or vinyl gloves. I usually wear nitrile, which are blue,green, or purple.

    I have given up on calling out because of the unpredictable response. Bells seem to evoke a more reliable response, but ringing way in advance allows time for the ped to hear, take a look, and then...

    The seller is aware of the issue with the original aluminum forks self destructing and wants to shield him or herself from lawsuits. Nice bike for the price. Replace the fork and you are good to go.
