If your bid is the true maximum price you're willing to pay, then you just have to accept someone else has bid higher than you. Trouble is you won't know what their actual bid is, their max bid could have been £200 or £5 more than yours.
Oh I know, I'm not overly dissapointed really as I've too many bikes as it is
I just didn't know if what I had bid was a true reflection of what it was worth hence my hesitation to bid a larger amount.
I guess if you tot the components up alone then maybe next time I'd bid a bit more C'est la vie
