I've been after a new set of forks for a minute and was following a couple of sets of float r's on here and ebay. onceinalifetime had some advertised on ebay as 'brand new' but had adverstised a set which had seen 'one light ride' on here months earlier, and then put ads up further down the line claiming they were 'brand new'.
I was interested in them but he was after a bit too much, imo. I bought a brand new set off CRC last night for 555pounds. onceinalifetime emailed me again today to see if i would reconsider my offer, i declined and explained i had already bought a set. I also explained he had advertised the forks as both new and used. It didnt go down well.
"Actually adam, they have nit been used, just fitted to a new build. you got the wrong end of the stick and had no intention of buying (I did but not at the price you were asking)
wasted your own time here.
Pretty glad i didn't end up dealing with him in the end tbf.
So if you go for 'one light ride' is it cool to advertise the goods as brand new?
