Oof. Post a link to the ad?
I was selling a bike recently with a knackered rear cassette and new chain. I made this clear in the ad and discounted it by a decent amount. Had one guy come around and say he wanted a discount because of the cassette – err, no, that’s why it’s cheaper than all the other ones on sale, as you pointed out.
Next day, some other guy starts texting about it and the following exchange happens:
me: “you know that the rear cassette needs replacing, right?”
me: “it’s mentioned in the bit of the ad that says IMPORTANT in capital letters…”

I thought once you binned an item it was fair game, drop it off at the tip, someone else picks it up, its there’s to do with as they see fit, including flog on fleabay…
When you say:
…smashed up due to warranty issues & threw out…
What precisely was your involvement with these items?Posted 3 years agocookeaaSubscriber
TBH, its not your concern OP, you’ve done the responsible thing in highlighting the safety issue, but is long as the seller is up front that they are flogging damaged goods for “Spares or Repairs” only I don’t think they, let alone you could be held in any way liable..
I don’t think the seller was in any way obliged to remove the item for sale as you described it…
There’s damaged Carbon kit all over ebay these days, various enterprising, and capable cheapskates (ahem) buy such things to fix so they can have a cut price bling bike…
