John-

I am impressed by your wisdom...seriously. I think you also saw this situation as product of buyers remorse as I do.

The real problem is with the buyer's internal discussion as opposed the item itself.

I also agree with your opinion regarding the amount paid for the item, (my idea of desireable cog range is 12-21). Your ability to still be accomodating is very admirable as well.

I will be looking to you to make my next purchase.

Best Regards- Nels Cone Seattle WA
