I have thrice e-mailed questions to The Sultan early on during ebay auctions. In no case did he respond. He has neat stuff, good photos and descriptions, but I make it a practice of not buying from folk who do not respond to simple inquiries. I would say he lost at least a dozen sales from me for stems, wheelsets, framesets, etc., because after three strikes I gave up. I would like to buy from him, but I'm not sure he understands who his best customers are or might possibly be.
