Ahoy !

In my simple mind, I don't see any issue here. Just because an item is not appropriate for one person's intented use, does not mean the item is not appropriate for another person. One person's dis-interest does not mean the item is flawed or in some way inappropriate for sale. Someone else may be perfectly happy with the item. To each his own.

listees... i am replying to this again (see mailbottom). somehow the ebay seller got news that i posted an opinion on a private forum re his ebay item and that opinion has tarnished his sale. just so that he is happy, let me retract one comment: once i decided that this frame had tubes that showed evidence of being damaged in the form of wrinkles on the top and down tubes, it wasn't that i DECLINED to buy it for that reason - i offered to buy it for less than the price the seller was asking. he sent me the frame via fedex on his dime and i sent it back to him via fedex on my dime. at this point, an email from him to me )cc-ed to dale) proves that he is upset about this and rightfully so. but (BUT!) i did state my position to him re the status of this frame upon its return and he was aware that i inspected it with the opportunity to buy it. based on my inspection i decided it was not worth it because of the irregularities on the tube surfaces. as i inferred, i would never do thia in public, and i hoped that this private by-subscription-only forum was an okay place to share an opinion, since i've been here since 1999. well - i am sorry i warned anybody cuz now i got some guy on the west coast disagreeing with me and he's upaet too.

Hardly a bad thing at all! If you were about to buy a car I knew had been crashed and compromised, and I, as your friend, didn't inform you, it would be terrible! Thank you Richard! Dale Brown Greensboro, North Carolina

for the record... i would never do this in a public forum. one more thing: i am not sure the owner is the seller. the owner clearly knew what i knew. the seller registered with ebay JUST YESTERDAY. e-RICHIE chester, ct
