Smile Nice!

I could not be more pleased with the Mavic/Ultegra wheels I purchased from Brian3069. I received them this morning via Fedex and they are like new. Brian was very patient while I got the PP FF corrected, I copied the e-mail wrong. Prompt shipping and packaged great. They are going to look so nice on my Ochsner rebuild. Thanks again to Brian 3069!

Thanks to @rootboy for generously providing a Campagnolo top tube cable clamp for my re-build of a Frejus. Thanks.

Ex Pres

Can't say enough good things about the beautiful Litespeed Classic frame that Ex Pres sold me. Not only is the frame in beautiful condition, but he obviously went to great lengths to make a box to minimize the shipping price to my distant location. And it was packed better than any bike I've ever had shipped (several including private and commercial sales).

Thanks again, Jim if you read this. I got it built up with some pretty nice wheels and other parts on hand to get it on the road and it is a sweet ride! It is well worthy of future upgrades and fit tweaks.

1991 Trek 830 Headset

Not sure this is the right forum to ask but I'm looking to find a headset for a 1991 Trek 830 MTB. Mine stripped last summer after many years of great riding. It measures 5-7/16" from the top of the bottom bearing race to the top of the steering column. Bike looks like this but this one is NOT my bike.

Just did a transaction with @Brewsmith, and I have to commend him publicly. Despite having just had a baby, he still found the time to ship my little purchase to me. Thumbs up.

Today I received a pair of Shimano shoes from Shrevvy, and a set of 105 8 speed DT levers from Rccardr. Both items are as they were described, like brand new. It was good business doing the transactions with them, good communication and prompt shipping. Both items were purchased at very fair pricing. I have purchase a number of items from members recently and they have all been exceptional buying experiences. Thanks to all.

Jim, aka Ex Pres answered a wanted ad I posted. He sent pics, described the parts accurately, gave me a good price, shipped them quickly.
Thanks for the awesome parts and great deal!

Belated thanks to @vtchuck for a set of Campagnolo NR crank dust covers, got 'em fast.

Also much thanks to @cudak888 for a Park cotter press, the thing is pristine and came at a good price for me.

Hope I'm not missing anyone - to date I've only had good experiences buying from forum members.

Thanks so much to @Insidious C. for the free blue Trek frame. Super stand-up guy, first of all he gave me this frame, second he was very communicative and willing to let me create a shipping label and send it to him, and third it was packed well and shipped without delay. Could not be happier.

I have had a interaction with a member here that contacted me about selling a part. I agreed to his price but because of PP transaction fees on my end (cross border) I wanted to cheap out and we agreed to a money order on receipt of part. When I traveled the ~60 miles to the USA drop box while on other business the parcel was not there and I contacted them to which they said it was sent and they already PM'd me a tracking number (which I did not get). I told them I was going back there and to please send again the tracking number and they respond they would do so. I had left it at that and after 7 days he sent me a message asking if it was received but still no tracking. Being busy it took me a couple days but I phoned the store to see if the package arrived and still it was not there. His last responds to me seemed a bit inflamed and I offered to send him payment regardless of actually getting the part or not if he would simply give me the tracking number. He claims that he sent it before but for some reason unknown to me will not do so again. In all of the nested responses of the PM's not once is there a USPS tracking number but he is adamant that it arrived at the post box on the 20'th of May. I gave him the phone number of the business that does the package recieving and I did tell him that I would post all the private messages if this was not resolved. I am reluctant to do this though because I don't actually know if an honest mistake was made or if he is a thief. I just want the tracking number. I have not heard from them in some time. Should I just let this drop and forget about it? Sorry for the sudo rant and please delete if not appropriate.

I have 7 messages in my PM sent box regarding the Tracking number for USPS: 9505 5149 8927 9137 1019 18. Each of those messages also shows that the tracking search shows the package having been delivered on 5/20/19 at 8:44 a.m. I have also repeatedly asked for confirmation that the package was or was not received and was not given this info until 6/5/19 when the OP relayed in a PM that the package had not been delivered there. The only person that is out anything is myself. I paid for the shipping, I sent the product, reported as delivered. He says he did not receive, fine, I am out the $9.50 for postage and I am out the $10.00 cost of the freewheel. What else can I do? Anybody, Please track the above number and relay it to the OP. PLEASE!

Yes, I plugged this tracking number into my USPS app and indeed it does show to be delivered to Houlton ME 5/20/19.

"Additional Information
Your item has been delivered to an agent at 8:44 am on May 20, 2019 in HOULTON, ME 04730"


Please don't post any PM's, as that would likely result in a perma-ban.
Surely this can be resolved amicably.

From my perspective, this is done and over with. If you received the freewheel, just keep it if that will appease you. I have written off your payment to me as a lost cost with no blame. Let's just move on.

Thank you for finally providing me with the tracking number. Payment has been sent to paypal.me/kleep52 as in your PM. I cannot imagine any reason why this could not have been provided when asked EVEN if it had been sent originally and then asking another to relay said information in the same thread. I assumed we were all adults on this group. I have opened a lost mail claim with USPS as it seems it was insured and they will find it for me.
