Do what I do. Carry a pedal wrench around wherever you go and help yourself when you see some pedals you like.

Start doubling your bids. That might change your luck.

Trust me, getting sniped twice in ten minutes on CS is a really good game for me.

That's happened to me before too, but it also enabled me to get a bike that was probably better suited for me anyway.

Yeah, because you guys are n00bs, and n00bs are supposed to get sniped.

no no no, that would be snipped, and no, it's not something I'm planning on doing anytime soon. Found something close enough on probikekit (I was hoping for silver or blue, found they have silver) and just ordered them....

Blah! I don't have the time to sit around and watch auctions all day, let alone figure out how to pwn at winning them every time.
