    I am not the OP so I can't comment on the thread's intent, but in fairness I don't see anything about the first post that suggests stolen property. That came later. To me it was more social...

    GONE.

    This handlebar bag support was on a bike I picked up recently. The bag was not with it.

    I don't know what kind it is, but someone is bound to know, right? It lacks the end bends that keep...

    Probably true, and in light of this verification issue, I will be more inclined to list items that way, at least items of any real financial consequence.

    As much as I don't like winning an item...

    This scenario describes one of the main reasons I like sniping programs. Find one you like better, just cancel the other snipe. It's not like cancelling an Ebay bid, which is kind of a big deal and...

    Still a steal. Those are really nice Panasonic-made frames. Nice racks too, and Cyclone bits.

    And those particular bikes do not appear to have suffered the indignity of months or years of exposure.

    Of course some bikes are abandoned; nice to hear about them being recycled to co-ops.

    I can accept that you feel that way, but I don't really understand why. I can't see who is hurt by it.

    As a seller, I don't care a lick how someone submits their bid, and assume that one way or...

    How does one know for sure they were abandoned? Were they wearing signs?

    Please don't take that the wrong way. I'm not saying they were not abandoned, but how can you be certain?

    Exactly right, but at the end of the auction, and automatically so I don't have to be logged on to bid, which isn't always convenient.

    Also, one of the best features, in my opinion, is the ability...

    I see nothing wrong with it. Plenty of people place manual last-second bids. Is that evil as well?

    The sniping programs charge a very nominal fee, so there's really no economic barrier to using...

    As this article (from last Oct.) points out, it can be a negative for both buyers -the ones who snipe, anyway - and sellers. Also, perversely, for Ebay, since they are missing out on the marginal...

    I didn't mean to start a prolonged debate over whether there are alternatives to sniping programs - clearly there are. I just meant for it to be a PSA for others who use programs and might be unaware...

    Snipers beware!

    I am a fan of sniping on Ebay, for a lot of reasons that have been discussed on other threads. It's become my habit to bid through Auctionsniper, no matter how big or small the item. I just find it...

    Just found a pair of Treks at the LBS. 1981 610 and a 1986 520. The latter is my size and will be my new all-rounder, assuming I like how it rides. The other is too big and will be booted once I give...

    I'm going with Specialized based on the script.

    Pretty bike. The tires on my Davidson measure abt. 26 mm and it's maxed out. Still a great riding bike though.

    Wow, nice one.

    +1 to the lock comments. It's a nicer bike than I'd lock up at all, unless that's an employee lot far from regular civilization and you're high up on the org chart.

    Cyclone is a great choice. As a less expensive alternative, a Vx series from Suntour is also excellent, maybe the best performance/dollar RD ever.
