your offer lifted you above the deluge, nice capture.

I see miles of smiles ahead for you.

Excellent deal.

I won't do a "bidding war" on Craigslist. But, it is not uncommon for me to hand a seller an extra $20 or $40, or just round up to the nearest big bill, and we both leave happy.

When I was car-free, I had a cheap CF frame that popped up on Craigslist. I had a meeting time and location. And, took off on the bike. Halfway there, I got a text from the seller that he sold it out from under me (and for about the amount I was probably going to hand the seller).

Oh, and please don't just relist the bike on Craigslist for $1000 without doing anything to it. I find those people so annoying. Do those people show up for an appointment, then lowball the sellers?

Value added, sure, but otherwise share the wealth.

I like my Campy Record 11s parts (white label), although some people seem to think bikes should have silver parts.

I do have a few Shimano parts including brake calipers and wheels.
