I just received the PX10 purchased from hazetguy. The price was low and he made nothing on shipping since I provided a pre-paid shipping label but you'd think he'd been paid a fortune to package it. I have never received a bike or frame packaged this well. I asked if he would use dropout spacers and he did. He also made about half a dozen anti-crush pieces fitted throughout the box and noodle wrapped the entire frame.

Thanks for a great transaction!

A massive thank you to the endless kindness of @since6

He very kindly passed on his Fuji Opus III to me today. What a great guy, full of info and evident passion. Very happy to have made that connection, and very excited to slowly restore and ride this Fuji - a permanent bike in my 'stable.'

Thanks again @since6!

@shnibop sent me the Suntour Superbe Pro FD/RD set you may have seen that didn't last long. They were exceptionally well packed. True jewelry for the bike! Alex was prompt, communicated very well and pleasure to do business with! Don't hesitate.

Kudos to @marius.suiram, for a fantastic transaction on the Schwinn Super Sport. His communications are fast and clear, packaging was first rate. Arrived Wednesday morning, only 3 days total elapsed for my PM to purchase the frame and fork. That's smokin' fast service there.....

Definitely can recommend buying from him, I will be watching his future FS items here.

Perhaps a bit late in my reply, but "Thank you @ColonelJLloyd" for a great deal on a Super Course frame and your careful packing. You've provided me with my winter cycling project. Thanks again.

Very happy to have received the beautiful Schwinnderella from Doc (rrcardr) a few days ago. He did an amazing job of packing the bike and spent a lot of time covering the entire frame in foam pipe insulation, zip-tying things to the frame, packing things, etc. Just want to say thanks to him. I feel lucky to have gotten one of his bikes (customized by Gugie.) Very easy to communicate with and just a great guy/transaction over all.

Thanks, I probably go a little overboard on the packing as a few others can probably attest. ATL is a major travel/shipping hub, we get a lot of ephemeral staff working the distro centers who really could give a crap what's in your box. If you don't pack bomb-proof, your stuff gets damaged as it's getting tossed around. I really miss DHL, only carrier you could really trust to handle your packages with care!

Was a pleasure doing business, you're extremely easy to work with!

I recently received a set of Suntour Barcons from AeroGut , and it was a completely hassle-free transaction, great communication. Also, it benefits a co-op, so +++... Thanks!

Bought A Masi 3V Volumetrica from @alexihnen. transaction was fast and smooth. 7 days from paypal to bike arrival. I was starting to worry, because i get excited, and trust too much with the people on the forums i hang out at! he got too busy, and forgot to send me the shipping info! Bike was packaged professionally, and well, and arrived in pristine condition!

thanks Alex

Drillium Dude sold me a nice pair of Avocet touring shoes. His listing was very clear and he gave me extra information and measurements so I could be more sure about the shoe size. It made me more confident in fitting shoes sight-unseen.

Also I learned a new word.

I paid him with PayPal "gift" because I already trusted him based on his other forum posts. I was not disappointed. Shipping was faster than Amazon, he was great to deal with, AND they fit!

Great transaction with francophile!

I just picked up a Razesa frameset from francophile yesterday. What a smooth transaction! I had to be down near Atlanta for some paperwork, and he actually delivered the bike to me. Everything was just as he described; I cannot recommend buying from him more highly! This was easily one of the easiest bike-related deals I've ever had, and he's a good guy too boot. Thanks francophile!

My second deal with malcala622 went just as well as the first. Our deal was done using Venmo, but I’d feel comfortable using any transaction site with him. Fantastic seller on here.
