Yes I did that too put the (,) instead of the (.) but I pulled my bid and redid it. I also started one Ultegra crank at 2000.00 in stead of 20.00. And what was funny is some one gave me a lot of trouble saying I was trying to rip people off.. Steven Willis 1778 East Second Street Scotch Plains NJ 07076 908-322-9022 http://www.thebikestand.com

(period) that is proper in the US to divide the dollars from the cents, you use the world standard which is a ',' (comma) you will get just such a number. The seller could actually have simply meant to put $10.29.
