eBay item 3677986276

This just irks me .... I wrote this note to this seller today...(and I know it's a case of "who made you the eBay police?") Many of you may already know he does this over and over. Maybe if a zillion people wrote to him?

<< Dear seller:

Re: your description "Brand new pair of NOS Dia-Compe gum rubber hoods for non-aero brake levers. Fit Campagnolo Record, Nuovo Record, and Super Record; Dia-Compe; SunTour Superbe Pro; Modolo; and many other brands of standard brake levers."

I am adding my voice to those who have informed you of the misrepresentation you repeatedly make in selling these gum hoods. As you must know by now, these are not a proper or safe fit on Campagnolo, Superbe Pro nor Modolo. Interestingly, you do not mention the proper fit which would include levers made by Weinmann and GB.

As a matter of courtesy, I will allow you a day or two to make the correction, and if not forth coming, I will make a formal complaint to eBay and encourage the vintage bicycle contingent to make similar filings. Please understand I am not trying to infringe on your sales but to prompt you to be responsible and become accurate in your description. In the long rub this should enhance and build your business through the trust and confidence buyers will have with your offerings....

Thanks in advance, Dale Brown >>
