I have bought several things, including my beloved chrome Paramount on 2nd
Chance offers. It would be too bad if they became so discredited that they
ceased being a legitimate tool to purchase items with.
I have a feeling that the public is getting very leery of any such offers.
I recently saw an item go for huge bucks on E-Bay and I had a virtually
identical item in my stash...A set of new in the box Delta Brakes. I
contacted all the bidders who had bid above the considerably smaller amount
I was willing to sell mine for and offered them to them. Out of nearly a
half dozen buyers I got back one very suspicious sounding reply. I guess I
was naive in thinking they would be glad to hear from me. At any rate the
parts are still sitting in my stash and I suppose I'll have to put them up
on an E-Bay page soon. Maybe this is as it should be...I'm not sure. I
hate to think bicycle folks cannot offer each other items because it has
gotten so rough out there.
Thank goodness for such little oases of relative calm like our List.
