There should be something better than just "positive feedback"

So I won an ebay auction for a "brand new in box" 888 RC last week. The price was awesome but having done a few ebay transactions in my day, "brand new in box" doesn't always mean what it says.

So yesterday I get the thing. I eagerly open the box. Inside was a SWEET padded canvas Marzocchi 888 flight bag, with a brand new, shiny, protective tape still over the stickers, wrapped in packing plastic, fork.

Now this dude could have easily just sent me the fork and I would have been fat and happy. I think it's super cool that he gave me that flight bag. Especially since I travel with my bike a lot, and my bike box would not fit a DH bike with a fork.

Seriously, there needs to be something better than "positive" feedback. If you ever have a chance to win an auction from "goodbikedeals", jump on it. The dude is top notch. :thumb: :thumb:

Yeah the worst part of positive feed back is everybody says the same thing.

I hope this new DH bike isn't going to hurt your Old Pueblo training.;)
I figured I would start training in early February, which will give me about a weeks head start from last year.

i'm trying to fit in the feed back description whether it was a high ticket item and whether i was satisfied or not because 6 months down the road nobody can see if it was a 10cent item or a 2000dollar item.
I won a really nice gf sugar 293 and sold it - Brand New. I even delivered it to the guys house. He was like "Wow" it's like brand new and i was like, "yea that's what it said" and gave him all the manuals and shock pump two. he was a little jazzed. Of course it was a great deal for him at about a G off retail.

Well it's a very unique USB cable which I think is specific to Fuji cameras. I looked at Target and Radio Shack and neither of them had it. If I'm gonna get one mailed to me I'll just have Deyv send it :p

What's Deyv have to take pictures of anyway? I mean, he's only touring the world on a bike, there can't possibly be anything photo-worthy. :p

Well, here's a chance to really sing the guy's praises on the feedback form.
Yup. When I encounter a seller (or buyer) like that I try to word the feedback to really praise the person. "trustworthy" Always buy from this guy" stuff like that.

I agree though. Ebay should have five levels of feedback, I think.

Edit: Ahhhh! That's the guy who is always selling the new marz forks. I always wondered about him. I may buy a fork from him now.

good, you better have it on the nicolai and ready to ride this weekend. so you can show me how "old fat guys go small". I think a creek gap / 8ft deck drop is in store for you this weekend. I on the other hand will settle for making it down the trails in one piece and inconspicuosly avoiding large stunts.
