Subject: [CR]2nd Chance offers and Off E-Bay deals

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.
