i've had occaasion to sell stuff and i vet the buyer pretty heavily. i would have had old mate sling his hook as money or not, if i cared for something or it was something cool that didn't deserve to be mishandled by a substandard intelligence yob then the cash wasn't important.
other side of the coin i've walked away with many a bargain as the seller gladly took less than the asking price or in one case, a sixth of a higher offer as he knew it was going to a good home.
this isn't snobbery, it's basic respect for equipment. you wouldn't give a two year old a razor blade to play with, and for the same reason a guy with nought in the way of sensible lashing equipment and illumination issues shouldn't get a bike that could very well be trashed before it's even gotten home as i can't picture him showing it any more care once it's there.
just a quick hello my name is Steve and im a bikeaholic.
been messing around with bikes for years but im NOT a mechanic, more of a muchanic, meaning that i muck about till something works.
Look forward to joining in
