Just a quick question about e-bay.

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Raleigh-Speci ... 3f29abc621

Just chanced on the above and wondered how to ask a question.... just wondering why a Commonwealth Games Track Frame has a brake attached........

Only the seller can choose whether to post the question you asked and the answer on the listing. (As I understand it)

....quite correct, when a seller receives a question they're not obligated to either answer you or show it on the item description however someone who is credible and knows what they are selling generally would respond and show your question for the benefit of other viewers

Maybe one of the previous owners drilled it for a front brake. Its a lovely frame.

Looks nice to me too - Cinelli bottom bracket, seat stays finished correctly etc.

A more pressing question for me would be to ask what you're actually getting. It's not really clear whether you are bidding on the complete bike in the pictures or just the frame and forks.

Thanks for all the help with e-bay :)

AFAIK SBDU stopped numbering about 7700 in 1986, I guess he can hide the question.......

Cheers
