I've gotten my power seller status several times, never thought much of it. I actually have it right now, couldn't care less.

As long as I have my 100% positive rating the powerseller status doens't mean anything really. When I'm buying on ebay I never look for the power seller status of a seller. I look at their feedback rating. If anything the powerseller status is sort of a turn off. I feel that people that sell on ebay for a regular basis are there to make money, not just there to get rid of some things they have laying around. The deals usually come from the people that are just selling things they find around the house or from when they are upgrading or switching out bikes (or other things).

HI, I'm new to mountain biking. how long should I be riding before I
take off the training wheels?
do you recomend 5 or 10 lbs of tire pressure
for the best traction?

You've actually ridden your bike? I still haven't decided what to upgrade before I take mine out. Should I get spd or eggbeaters? I've only ever ridden the bike to test it before I bought it but I'm pretty sure it doesn't suit my needs; new fork?

I don't know what those are, but I don't see why you couldn't put bike parts on a bikelol

I wouldn't use disc braeks because i've heard of some people having problems with them. I just got mine yesterday and they don't stop me at all! It's like, dang, stop me already.

If I did receive a certificate I probably just put it in the shredder. I seriously doubt that anyone I know could care less if I was a power seller or not anyway. Then again, I guess I could have framed it and put it on my trophy wall for all to see.
