Ooooh get you. I’m looking for a nice set of longish travel forks and I have always liked Marzocchi so I was drawn to your ad thinking they might be just what I want but if you decide to include a review that marks them as average I’d say you’re spoiling your own sale.
I will get a life though, thanks for that sage advice, whilst you’re dishing out the pearls of wisdom can you tell me why is it the people who attempt the rudest and cheekiest low balling over other people on here who get so incensed when someone tries it on them?Posted 9 years ago

I’d still like an example though JonR. If you find one in the classifieds (where it can put potential buyers off) then I’ll gladly hold my hands up and take it on the chin. If its in the ‘chat’ forum then I can’t see how spoiling someones classified ad justifies the above comment. Do you see my point?Posted 9 years ago
Would you prefer the chat forum to become less lively in its debate? A more uniform opinion preferred? You dont have to agree with everyones opinion.
Honestly? I can’t remember it. Was it linked with a classified ad? (my comments at the time).
Do the above amount to personal attacks by reason of linked comments? Is that fair on someones ad do you think? Are they all meant to (hopefully) push someone away from the forum?
Edit- i’d just like to add. There are elements of people on here who hold wierd grudges. Will remember the slightest thing for years. If I have an arguement within a day I’ve usually forgotten about it. Were people bullied at school and a remote-medium enables them to get back at people for what happened to them years ago?
Does the internet breed the trait bitterness in people?Posted 9 years agojulianwilsonMember
hora, did you really not expect anyone to say anything after the ‘safety device’ enormo-thread last year? I am properly, honestly and in no way tounge in cheekedly sure they are of merchantable quality and fully working now, as you are a well known figure here and would be asking for trouble selling a potentially troublesome fork.
But why didn’t you just see the above (and possibly unfair hora-baiting?) ridiculousness coming a mile off and go straight to ebay?Posted 9 years ago
Hold on, first of all you can drop the righteous indignation at your ad being “spoiled”, this is a classifieds forum and you advertised something then when someone made you an offer you asked a question that I gave an honest answer to, you turned this in to a discussion not me. If you were not prepared to take 200 for the forks why didn’t you just say
“Way too low mate”
“Are you kidding, I paid list for these and have barely used them”
Rather than try some tactic of incredulity in order to try and put off further lowballing of the product you’re selling.
Further more in case you haven’t noticed we are on a brand new forum and anything over a couple of months ago cannot be rehashed to prove this or that and even if it could I wouldn’t be bothered to do so, suffice to say your reputation preceeds you coupled with a friend who complained to me that you were “constantly messing him about on price*” when negotiating a bike with him.
How is that a personal attack, its simply a question why lowballers don’t like being lowballed, you aren’t the only one as I can think of one other on here who constantly sells his kit at a premium whilst making derisory offers for other’s stuff.
Finally I find someone who has in times past cluttered up the classified forum with “comedy” listings to get on such a high horse himself slightly ironic but then irony like so much in life is subjective as are probably all the opinions which seem to be pouring in to this thread.

JonR, fair enough on “Way too low mate” etc comment. That would have helped me. Point taken. Which bike was it? It would have to be a frame and the only frames Ive been interested in are a Heckler and a few Specialized..
On a wider note. I am willing to take it on the chin on this one looking at your other comments.
Shall we move on? 🙂Posted 9 years ago
I may be interested if there’s any flexibility on the price;Posted 9 years ago
goog, “way too low mate” 😉 😆
Scienceofficer. I know. These particular Pikes are a new set of original 2005 SL’s..and admitably are lush.
Theres still a set of 2005 Pike Race’s for sale on Winstanleys bikes site if anyone is interested. Internals are supposed to be the same however my SL’s are finished in silver-plate chrome with iluminuous Pike decals etc.Posted 9 years ago
