"B real" is someone else, i do not know this person. and i am not one to use another handle to sell something or for any other purpose (it is why i have almost 1000 post) - i have used this handle "spytech" for over a year now, and i post here often, i used him as an example because i saw this post in the sales section, where you outright attacked his sale as did mine in the thread i posted. i welcome a good deal. but your talk is just that. where is the FSA superlight crank and BB for $275 new? and whatever "b real" is selling he says is in "in perfect, unridden condition" i would consider that NEW wouldn't you. you need to read, before your so quick to post, your making a fool out of yourself.
if you went to the shop that i worked in and harrased customers that they would get it cheaper somewhere else, they would kick you out of the store. no one wants to lose a sale in a bike shop. as far as i know your talking our of your arse
yeah, they are going to make it up in fixing flats, tune ups or repairs; yeah sure, you keep telling yourself that.
For example, a set of Ksyrium SL's will cost 770 euro's at you LBS...... if you sell them on marktplaats.nl after a year.... 400 or 450 would be a good price, now would it? Well, it isn't, because Salden sells the wheels new for 560......
That's how things work in Europe.....

this is an interesting topic.
yes that is fine. i have seen my cranks for $275 plus shipping, i am selling them 35% cheaper $175. 275 is already below retail. so i was under the impression that i was giving someone a good deal. so i asked him to prove where he would find my cranks for $175 new or used shipped. because what i saw for $275 buy it now in ebay were not the same cranks, they are the 02 - 03 team issue model and not the superlight version.
