I like the idea of dibs but really if the seller states a certain set of rules and you don't follow them, and someone else does before you do, then it's your fault.
You can't have wanted them that much if you couldn't be bothered sending a PM straight away, as was required by the seller. It takes about 10 seconds "I'd like Xxxx, please send me payment details".
Well Rob I did the first part. Did the thread originally say when to pm by no? I got pulled away suddenly for 45 mins or so.
I dibbed the item. Which to me means on hold for possibly more than 45 mins...maybe 46 minutes
When I sell something its normally 24hrs then it goes to the next person.

So this comment is a bit off.
"Yeah, I'll have that Merlin Extralight in what may or may not be my size - and I'll just have to sell everything in my garage first..."
But it's OK - I've got first refusal..
Do you guys think Im like this right?
As Ive said perhaps other peoples actions have let me and the site down.
People can say boo hoo and all that. You think I care about missing out on some M900 arms. Not exactly a rare item are they.
The parts have nothing to do with it. It was the way I lost out on the deal.....
This is a forum right? Things like this are open to debate. I wanted to get other peoples opinions on this issue..
People are always up for a debate. But when you start getting offensive to people then they don't like it. Like calling people flakes or taking the p*ss over liking Pace frames. I can't stand Klein's - over priced and never ridden most of the time so pointless bulls**t posturing owning one IMO. But I wouldn't ridicule someone because of it.
