Trusted/Un-trustworthy sellers
« Reply #1800 on: August 11, 2008, 12:48:28 AM »
So I bought MySlamsAreOlder King wheels nearly 2 months ago, like usual what seemed like a good deal turned into a nightmare. Wheels arrived quickly enough, not in the time he said but only a few days after, no problem. Upon further inspection the front wheel was missing over half the spokes(I knew it was missing some) and the nipples on both wheels were seized, he ma not have known this so no problem. Then I find a cracked adjustment cone, this is what basically holds the rear hub together. I test ride the wheel and find it loosens after only a few seconds of riding. So I swap the front and rear cones and take the wheel into work. Further inspecting it while trying to fit a 12t cog I find the flange is cracked, completely sideways through 2 spokes. I e-mail him and let him know my find, of course he said he had no idea. I call Chris King and talk to them about warranty, get an estimate for a new shell, $60 plus I add on a new cone to replace the cracked one he sent, $75 total for parts and labor plus $7 shipping back, since I run a shop they cut me a deal and we settle at $60. I PM MySlamsAreOlder and ask him to split the cost and paypal me $30, he tells me how he's super broke and would like to help but can't at the time. The following day I see he's made a WTB post for some parts, PM him again and of course they aren't for him, they're for a friend he's still broke.
Well 2 months have went by and he's yet to paypal me a single cent and i've already came out of pocket to completely fix the wheels.

I don't think the guy is shady in general, he's made some decent deals I just think he dicked me, being he knew the flange was cracked or not he knew the adjusting cone was broken and he knew how many spokes were missing from the front wheel. And over the course of 2 months he could have came through with $30.

Good price, good communication (I had to remind him for things, but no problem), and was able to deal with my shipping demands due to some problems I've had.  I'd deal with him again.

Dealt with 180 again, just for a lever and everything was great

JohnBlev - super good with selling me a frame when I paid first and he shipped quickly with a copy of the reciept/tracking.  Would deal with him again mainly based off of his ability to return PM's quickly.

asianpersuasion - sold him some stuff for cheap and went good.

razz-b - always been good to me.
