Many thanks to @abshipp. He brought his Schwinn Passage frame to a midway point, which I thought was really nice considering he didn't want a lot for it. It's a great frame in really fine condition. A great transaction. Good price, good communication, no surprises. Highly recommended.

Great to meet you as well, @abshipp. I'm looking forward to building this frame up when the temps get a little cooler. It's gonna be the flagship!

purchase from chico81

A couple of months ago I bought a Raleigh Peak Mountain Bike from chico81. I posted a thank you to him in the for sale thread but I just realized it would be most appropriate to do that in this thread, as this is where someone might most likely search for feedback on a forum member. Ian did a tremendous job restoring the bike and it is as close to like new as a 28 year old mountain bike can be. He was quick to answer questions and send additional photos. It was packed very well and arrived in perfect shape. He did a great job of communicating throughout the process. I would recommend a purchase from Ian to anyone based on my experience.

Purchase from SamSpade1941

I recently purchased a Diamondback Ascent Mountain Bike frame from SamSpade1941 and it was a great transaction. Ryan did a good job of accurately describing the frame. The price and shipping costs were very fair. It was very well packed and arrive in great shape. He even included a Shimano bottom bracket with the frame set. He communicated well throughout the process. Thanks for a good deal Ryan.

Received an almost-brand-new pair of Superbe brake calipers from @Brewsmith this evening. Well-packaged and - did I note that they are almost new? Super transaction - thanks, Alex

A couple of feedbacks, well deserved:

Just completed two fantastic transactions with @smontanaro for some shiny Campagnolo content, packed as well as anyone could ever ask for and newer than eBay sellers could ever dream about. Oh, and how about price? Skip could make those eBay seller's Top Rated awards turn into the dust of Thanos.

Super generosity from @ThermionicScott means that the three Velo Yellows kids track bikes that I'm building for the local non-profit have gained a much-needed freewheel - completely gratis too. Such a kind thing to do - two thumbs way up.

More feedback coming soon...

-Kurt

Another excellent purchase from @deux jambes , an assortment of chains this time. He graciously timed the shipping around my schedule. Package came sopping wet in a plastic bag, thanks to Uncle Sam's ham-fisted handling. Chains inside were wrapped so tightly, however, that they came out unscathed, and I have two in service already.

Hope this is okay - plug for a C&V seller based on local non-BF transactions - I've made several purchases now from @TenGrainBread , at his yard sale and via CL ads. Honest as the day is long, items are exactly as represented. So if he lists anything you like, contact him quick, before I snatch it up .

In more than 20 years of buying and selling and swapping bikes, frames and parts across the internet, I have never encountered a frame packing job as thorough and solidly done as the Raleigh Gran Sport I just received from Schreck83. There were carefully shaped and fitted blocks in the fork tips, rear drops, a plug to maintain the top of the seat lug and a nicely shaped protector for the bottom bracket as well as thorough pipe insulation protection for all tubes. I've had bikes shipped from frame builders that weren't as well prepared for transit as this battered and homely (but with good bones!) frameset that was essentially given to me. Chapeau, man, as they say! I am humbled and honored by the care he took!

I had a very good transaction with Panzerwagon. Good communication, good price, item was as described, fast shipping and good packaging. I would not hesitate to deal with Panzerwagon again.

Had a great deal with jeirvine a while back. Campy nuovo record parts. All nice and clean. Was great meeting you.

also had a great experience with Brian3069 on a cable adjuster.

Working with lastride76 has been great. So far no bad deals with this group!

Had an excellent set of transactions with brian3069 a while back. Purchased a Raleigh frame and then the parts/components for it. Everything was in better condition than his descriptions and he was very fair with pricing. He did a phenomenal job on packing things up as well. Many thanks again.
