      Yeah, all my bikes cost around that.


      Unfortunately mine's about to be broken up, I need to join the adult world (booo) and get driving soon as, not that it was getting any use before I made that decision anyways.

              Too many spacers screws up the frame geo, can you not saw it down a bit more?

                Spacers won't affect the frame geometry (as they are above the headtube, it's only the axle-to-crown height that affects head angle), but riding position will be changed to be more upright and lead to higher center of gravity.

                    I don't know why people still use bank transfer now PayPal withdrawals are almost instant, much safer and less change of typing in wrong numbers etc.

                    Hope it comes good in the end though.

                      Guy wouldn't use PayPal and I know a fair few people that don't. PayPal is good except for the fact they can just take money from your account it makes people uneasy.

                        But riding position being different would mean your not positioned to correctly "fit" with the frame geo? I've seen some crazy spaced out forks where the hands are raised enough to effect the handling, or some who put the spacers on top of the stem LOL!

                        Isn't pink bike now renowned as the place to shift dodgy bikes nowadays? On many stolen bike threads its the first place they always say to go ARgghhghgh

                          I've always used it for parts for my bike never had a issue. And I always get address phone number etc first. There are always some dodgy bikes on there but you can usually tell which ones if your careful.
                          And most importantly I always try and check the ads for stolen bikes similar to the thing I'm buying. Had a bike nicked once was really depressing and a mate had his taken a few months back from outside his work.

                          I'm really hoping I'm wrong about this guy and that's he's just slack otherwise got to save up again and buy something else

                            Forum owners should be able to help the police track him down for you?

                              Forum owners have a massive disclaimer about holding no responsibility for buy sell secrion. They do say they will give any info they have to the police but its an American website so not sure how helpful they will be. And you need little or no info to register
