So, as always. To redress some of the negative stuff that's been going on, there does of course continue to be excellent forum dwellers who exceed expectation.
So, mundiesmiester. Bought a mega frame off him earlier last year, paid a bit more than you might expect, but it was essentially perfect, and it had the right headset installed, plus extra nukeproof spacers, so a good deal. Delivered in the original box, superbly packed, and in good time.
Then, out the blue at Christmas, I got a note saying that he had taken receipt of a new chain stay that had been sent in case of the famous snappage issue. He asked if I,d like it, so I covered the postage and he popped it over.
In general, that is top class. Great effort.
Have to say, that echos ALL of my experiences on here. Frame from ton (natch!), brakes, a 1D canon, various other bits, a complete roadrat.... My, I should probably stop, but all experiences have been excellent.
