I've got a WC 6 Friend. Barley used. I have two of them and never carry both even for the wide. A few scratches from banging around on the rack but it's basically new. 

It's yours for $95, that includes the shipping. Feel free to PM or email "


Careful of this seller. I payed via Paypal and added 3% because the user was created 4 days ago. The seller communicated several times on email promising shipping and tracking today, but instead cancelled the sale and refunded with no explanation and no response from email.

This is suspicious, that's all

Glad you got your money back. Could be much worse

So you get all your money back and decide to smear him on the internet?

I'm glad I'm not your ex

You are entitled to your opinion. When something is shady, I don't mind letting people know that it was so. I didn't smear the guy. I said be careful and posted the details factually.

This is intended as reminder that you should use Paypal's protection if you are unsure of the buyer.

Please don't respond to this thread further. This was just a PSA, and I'd rather not clutter the Buy, Sell page. We can take it to general discussion or PM's unless the seller wants to post here.

What's the problem with the OP here?  He posted that the seller agreed to terms then cancelled a sale without further communication.  
I'm glad that it was highlighted here, for one.  It sounds like bad and maybe fishy business.

He refunded your money with no explanation.

That's bad business, certainly not shady. Leave him a bad seller review and leave it at that, no need to post his full name in the title of the post.

I've done what is appropriate. Nobody would have looked at a seller review, because he changed the title to "SOLD"

This worked exactly as it should, a reminder to stay protected on sales that don't look right. Because occasionally they might not be.

I'm not replying to this further. If you have beef, send me a PM.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
