    Nope, wondering if I have been scammed, no reply now to PM's either :evil:

    He got back in touch today to explain he had had 42 items to post hence the delay. Reassuring.

    hey velo
    all gone now
    im sure you will have them by weds,possibly tommorow

    thanks

    The pedals finally arrived today post marked 25/05/2011

    I'm pleased that they arrived, but to say that I would have got them on Tuesday when he didn't even post them until Wednesday would have involved some time travel!!! :shock: :roll:

    From his emails he is not a very nice person to deal with either.

    He probably will say the same about me, but sorry I dislike people who can't tell the truth, why didn't he just say "Sorry Mate, I'm a bit busy with work so will post them at my first opportunity"

    Anyway I really can't recommend anyone dealing with him again.

    Emails seem fine at the moment. He's suggested he delievers the goods to me tomorrow lunch as we're located nearby in london so will update on progress.

    I paid for a Selle Italia saddle (in white) described as being in great condition. Inaccurate description in my view.

    I'm sad to say that I would not buy from him again due to condition of item and delay/lack of communication involved in transaction (10 days or so)

    Still waiting on a FSA chainset from him, paid for it on the 20th May. Seriously considering raising an issue on paypal with him as i've no response from the PM system with him.

    I understand he had over 40 packages to send out but a simple message to keep me in the loop would be nice.
  • he's just put up a few more items in the road section btw.

    p.s. ciclicasati, cheers for the crankset :)

    I finally got my stuff, along with gillet and new winter windproof jacket. Yes he took a while to send my stuff, but happy enough with the extra gear he sent.

    Goods turned up in the end. As described.
    He didn't turn up to our lunchtime meeting and no call which was annoying but posted special delivery at his own cost a day or so later. Got him to send me a pic of the postal receipt. He's no scammer he just isnt very quick. That you get anything at all when you give a stranger £100 over the net is always pleasing so i guess every so often a delayed delivery is ok.
