If people are making money on a REGULAR basis from trading on this forum then that isn't good - ebay should be for that sort of thing. How many bikes / parts can someone buy / sell in one month??
I'm not saying that people shouldn't make money but people using the earlybird tactic to bag a bargain to be resold isn't in the STW spirit in my opinion - takes deals away from STW'er who will USE the products.
My lesson learnt is to wait and see who pokes their nose above the parapet before selling - not sure I'll reserve it for any earlybirds as it isn't fair on people who want to buy something for themselves.
