When a deal is too good to be true it usually is, presumably a hi-jacked account, reported several but as normal Ebay do square root of bugger all
My cousin and his wife have decided to create some space in their shed by selling off their bikes. Usual story; bought many years ago with good intentions but have hardly seen any use. They are low end bikes but somewhere above BSO status.. Knowing my cousin as I do, I can vouch for the fact...
So this has happened to me a few times and I wonder why people do it.
The other day I posted a really nice, 3 months old mint condition child's bike on eBay with a desired price in mind of at least £100, (older, well used ones go for 80-90), reserve was set at £90. Local collection only...
They know many people don't fancy buying from China because of the shipping time, potential customs charges and the impossibility of returning faulty items, so they just say they're based in London or Manchester and eBay lets them do it.
I got a couple of cheap bike bells advertised as suitable...
All sold via eBay.
Having had a shed clear-out and a distinct lack of space I've listed the following:
American Classic 420 rear wheel - Shimano 10 speed freehub - £40 start: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/164156793077
Boardman SLR Elite Five wheelset - Shimano 11 speed freehub - £60 start...
Would I be right in thinking that due to the Covid situation people are not really posting much stuff on ebay - I am looking for a few specific cyling items and there is nothing. Not an issue at all and completely understandable - just wondering.
Sadly, some lowlife is at it again.
ICE FULL FAT RECUMBENT TRIKE WITH BAFANG BBSHD 1000W
Can always tell - just have a look at the HUGE range of other items this person has for sale !!!

Had a fun chat with a seller on ebay this evening.
Chap's selling an Extracycle Edgerunner (long-tail) that looked perfect for a mid-drive e-cargo bike conversion. The listing mentioned some issues with the seat tube but on closer inspection it looked like the post has seized at some point in...
Was tempted to buy the more expensive one as it includes postage. Then resell in the summer. Not a fan of cannondale bad boy although the one I had was Shimano 11 speed.
I dont know what the bloke selling the cheaper one is burbling about.
Anyway good prices...
This is my son's 'winter' commuter. That he isn't using for commuting because he's racing / training and won't commute on those days. Basically it's done under 200 miles and is exactly as per original spec except for Widget mudguards being fitted.
Not used off-road as he only rides the...
You know that time when you bid on something, only to realise you don't want it, don't need it or you made a mistake.
I bid on some 2nd hand Road Shoes that had the SPD 2 hole system which I don't use. I didn't read the ad properly.
I spent the whole week being the high bidder but was saved by...
I can’t help think that some sellers on eBay and other marketplace sources (including here) think buyers are stupid. The number of times a product is described as ‘fantastic condition’ or similar when clearly it isn’t nearly anywhere as stated, beggars belief. AND they list it at a daft...
Is this priced about right?
Would I be able to furnish with modern components or is too old for them?
I can’t tell by the photos if it’s a track bike or a road bike.
I’d be grateful for any information before I commit.
Moving house so need to clear the garage.
Lots for sale at (I think) very resonable starting prices.
Somec, Roberts, Barry Chick, Serotta, Saxon twin tube frames
C-record 650 wheels
Sugino track cranks
Lots of Dura Ace, Campy record, Suntour superbe etc...
I sold a relatively small value bike component recently. It was on for sale as a buy now or make me an offer basis. A buyer duly made an offer which l accepted and an invoice which included postage was sent through ebay. That was two days ago and l haven't heard from the buyer and the invoice...
I had ordered a small item 10 days before Christmas, Royal mail second class.
The item did not arrive by the 28th, so I dropped them a mail, they sent another one out the same day.
Of course I ended up with two of the same item within a week.
The shop asked me if I wanted to pop the second item...

Looking through ebay and came across this, It' only part of the add,
(It will also come with a Kryptonite Evo Series 4 lock, with two keys. I have the third key at my mum’s, which I can mail later on if needed.)
Not sure what to make of that.:laugh:
Hi all -
I'll try and keep it short....
Sold wheels on eBay to buyer who offered not far off asking price and has Zero feedback. He did ask a cpl of Q's relating to wheels which suggests basic knowledge. His address is work address (he's away for a week) and name and (quick google) address match...
Just trying to buy something for one of the kids that he has been mithering about for months. It's a £60 Rc buggy and a lot of the sellers are based/shipping from China so I don't want to risk being landed with any duties if customs decide to stop my package.
There was one seller apparently...
So bassically something happened on the 12th of july which caused my bike to get stolen which is why i haven't been on much, I reported it to the police through their online service as soon as i got home. However I just looked on Ebay and found a bike that looks exactly like mine as it has...
