I have a few observations regarding buying and selling on BCSB:
BCSB seems to have abundance of no-post, or b&s post only, blood-sucking wonders, cruising the bike sale section, looking for people who are desperate to sell their rides for various reasons.
Every PM I got from 'users' with 'offers' on my bike were for ridiculously low offers, with
'i got cash in my hand right now' or
'i can be there in 10 minutes to pick it up' or
'i'm not really looking to buy, but I have X-much cash'
and so on.
I wish there could be something that could be done about the leaches on the forum, who don't contribute anything at all to the site, or the riding community, other than posting their crap for sale and cruising the sell board looking for a sucker.
Not to be totally neghative, I did get a fair price for my bike, thanks to the user on this board, who refered my ad to his father.
Also BIG THANKS to Good Old Pete for his kind words and support.
