^ I agree. It's tricky. If I couldn't get a positive response from a seller in advance of the order, then I wouldn't buy.

I'm in the throes of buying a track frame made in Singapore but sold by a Chinese Aliexpress seller. I have specific size requirements, of course. It has taken two weeks to get the seller to respond, and tell me that they only have one color in my size (contrary to the store listing). They extended the shipping origination time once already, after I had agreed and paid. Sigh. I don't need the frame, and have no deadline. I'd be surprised if I've finished this bike before July 2021. Really surprised.
