Re: More s**t parts.

Trouble is it isn't just the hassle of sending parts back it's the waste of a afternoon thinking 'am I doing something wrong' that I begrudge! If I could charge for my normal hourly rate they wouldn't dare send out less than perfect parts! Totally agree here Tim.....The hassle caused by convincing ...

Re: FRAUDSTER ON ebay....WARNING!!!

I know, but what concerns me is that there may of been a planned theft of the bike. Find the location of the bike do a quick ebay listing and someone may think they are getting a bike at a bargain. Let's be honest, if someone was after an sx and it was only at £4800 with a few hours to go,????????.
