Good idea. I'm frustrated with the bells for sale nowadays. They're all made of plastic. I just bid on some all-metal bells on ebay.

Got a package from Ribble this weekend. Got a bunch of Campy bits (Veloce Ergos, cassette, cables), GP4000s tires, some tubes, headset spacers, etc. Now I'm just waiting for my BB and RD which should come this week.

Some Modolo levers and brakes from a fellow BF'er. Love the look these levers have ! Don't even want to put hoods on them.

Now have to come up with a project......

That sounds pretty good, except I don't think I could get them on with my shoulder right now!

Either you are going to start an S&M club, or somebody is going to be really happy with their new bags!

It wasn't that bad...I have some older unlaced tubulars that I bought from a member hear about 2 years ago at t-town. I've never laced them up and they've become the official tire stretching rims...I can put my foot in one end and pull on the other.

Funny you should mention that. I exchanged emails with a young, naive gal who was selling some black leather hides on ebay.
Come to find out she inherited them from her late aunt, who was apparently making S&M gear. I offered to re-purpose some of the straps she had into something a bit more mundane. Never heard back from her. Maybe she decided to take up where auntie left off.

Why?

The Italian flag sticker is sweet. And I'll assume the US postal service crushed the box.

No sticker, printed on box. Customized by Fed Ex. Disappointed, because of poor shipping style, Yes it's only a box, but seat was cheaper elsewhere without box, box was prominently displayed in ad, I like boxes. It may sound stupid and trivial, but if I bought an iPhone, you wouldn't just slap a label on the box and ship it would you? This was a gift for a friends birthday, at least everyone at the party had a good laugh at the condition of box. Seat had small mark on nose, and everything inside (manuals, stickers, etc.) was crushed and destroyed. I had a similar experience from the same seller a year ago, I forgot that they couldn't care less about their product, I will be sure to avoid Velomine in the future.

I've had nothing but good experiences with Velomine, including excellent customer service should you chose to deal with them directly.

I guess I'm just unlucky, they sent me a Suede Turbo in a paper envelope with no packing whatsoever, Suede worn off in places, Turbo sticker peeling off nose.... They obviously sell a lot on eBay, huge feedback number, but oh well. As far as customer service, they sent me an email "will send another box, then it will be all good." Maybe (although party's over, so not really), but you could have asked what I thought would make it right. I am sure the loss of my business won't make any difference to them, and I am glad you have had good experiences with them, but I'm done. Sorry to rant, I'll try to Stay Positive!
