How can this issue be declared resolved when the purchaser still has complaints against the seller for misrepresenting the bicycle condition, shipping terms, and over billing for unpurchased insurance?

THE SELLER NEEDS TO DOCUMENT ITEM AND SHIPMENT TERMS BETTER IN THE FUTURE ! If the buyer acted in good faith, so should the seller - it appears that the seller did not...

I side with the buyer, based on the info presented, on an issue that should not be considered "resolved" when it is clearly not.
