I believe he is list member Mario Girasa who ID'd himself to all of us just a few weeks ago. I have bought a number of his auction items and contacted him in privite on some other items I needed and he came through on those too. He knows what he has and its' value and is able to get top dollar; seems reasonable given the very high quality of the high end items he's selling. If I recall correctly he had a connection to Mike Kone from Bicycle Classics back when it was located here in the East. He's a great source of parts and I would recommend him to anyone on the list.

Eric Elman Somers, CT (yes, I got the Sutter in the house and no one noticed - I guess things are so out of hand now that one other bike doesn't draw attention anymore - that's good......right?!)
