Another good transaction with ColonelJLloyd! He ships fast and prices things too cheap. Thanks!
FYI, the dent is partially out with frame blocks; going to have the rest filled with silver.
I, and many others on this forum, request using the "personal" option (which includes "gift") as to avoid the transfer fees. It sure as hell doesn't make me a rat, Kurt.
Please note that this is not an invitation for you to start another rant regarding PayPal. We all know you don't like it.
I recently bought a Merckx MX-Leader frameset from Stevenc. It came sooner than expected, was exceptionally packed, and was exactly as described. No surprises. Email communication was wonderful as well. Buy from Stevenc with confidence.
Bought a bike and a frame off sjpitts recently, shipped quickly and well packed. Highly appreciated!
While no transaction actually took place, I want to commend Belg-Ital Steel for his in-depth answers to queries and detailed pictures describing every possible flaw on the frame in question.
mapleleafs-13 - I recently did a deal on some Peugeot cranks with . Great guy to deal with.
MetinUz - Sold me some tools at a very reasonable price. All went perfectly well on the deal.

I'd highly recommend Mapleleafs-13. I just bought some shifters from him and he even did the extra leg work to bring the shipping costs down.
Rather than create a new thread I figure I should first reply to this one in the hope of getting some advice.
Simply, I've never come across a dealer like this before although I knew they existed. Anyway right now it looks like I've been caught out. He's very responsive to emails up to the point where he has your money in hand at which point everything goes quiet.
He's failed to respond to me now almost 3 weeks. At first I accepted that sure he's just slow, as some have said, but now following 5 unanswered emails over the last 2 weeks let's just say I'm not convinced he has any intention on shipping me anything.
I'm wondering for those who's deals have gone bad with this guy:
- how have you contacted him - he obviously doesn't respond to emails
- did you manage to resolve your deals finally and if so just how long did they take?
Have you tried calling him?
alternatively call during 10.00 to 19.00 Greenwich Mean Time on:
(0044) (0)117 951 0619
(0044) (0)797 104 3290
Jumping on the bandwagon regarding Mapleleafs-13: super transaction for a parts/spare SR rear derailleur. Great communication and fast shipping.
I'd like to mention Mapleleafs as well, excellent transaction with no hiccups!
Also, DrilliumDude for a sweet parts swap, I even got some bonus drillium not originally discussed in the trade. Not to mention very helpful and knowledgeable guy assisting me in putting together my upcoming "restoration"!
Just received items from jstewse... Good communication, great items great price! Thank you!
I had a great buying experience with bibliobob. Shipping was fast, the frame was packed well and now I've got a beautiful Lotto MBK team frameset that's going to make a great winter project. Thanks again!
ColonelJLoyd sold me a stolen bicycle. He also tried to convert my religious beliefs.
Nlerner knocked up my sister and wouldn't marry her.
noglider impregnated my dog, but at least he helped with the delivery.
RobE30 stole my credit card and bought tighty whities at Kmart with it.
Fender1 sold me a fake Rembrandt!
