Auction Description Variance


I originally posted about this same bike in another thread:


Anyway... I was a little suprised to find the bike in the condition that it is given the description. Seems as though my rose colored glasses have broken. Anyway, as I'm a newbie, if you have a moment could you look over this and let me know if I'm expecting too much from what was described?

I've created a page, originally to share pictures with the seller, that describes the situation:


Some feedback as to what I should have expected from the description would be great. I don't want to be unreasonable but can't help but feel I'm getting the short end of the stick.

Should have listened to Sydney. Saying that, The seller has obviously mis-represented the condition of the bike in the listing. But his idea of normal wear/minor scratches differs than what common sense would dictate. A minor scratch is not considered down to metal. A bent ring should have been mentioned. This seller is an idiot. Here's a link to ebay for what you should do ASAP.

This seller isn't going to do anything. Don't be afraid to neg him either.
