I really don't know where to begin my praise here and I'm sure to miss something out, but here goes:

Having missed out on a Speed Project Lite frame this seller had on eBay through my own stupidity, Daniela contacted me to give me more information about 90s Italian Mountain bikes and alternative makes I might also want to investigate. Being stubbon, I looked at some details but thought I still had my heart set on the Project Lite.

Daniela then picked up a Scapin ProRace TR-X and contacted me to offer it to me first, before putting it on here. I asked plenty of questions and she provided me with lots of information, including plenty of pictures and scans from the original catalogues. It didn't take me long to realise I loved this bike more than the Speed.

Having agreed to buy the frame, forks and stem, Daniela then offered me a range of other parts (again with good pictures), based on how I had said I wished to build up the bike, and I also chose a seatpost, bars and Scapin rear wheel.

The parcel was quickly despatched from Italy and arrived in England 6 days later. It was brilliant packaged and arrived in perfect condition. Everything looks even better than it did in the pictures and she even added some free bar ends.

I know the postage costs from Italy are high and that makes it a little harder for Daniela to sell parts, but she absorbed the cost into the parts bought and I really feel like I got a bargain (or several bargains, depending on how you look at it).

In summary, an absolutely brilliant seller. Fantastic communication and really helpful with information etc. A pleasure to deal with, she found me a bike I love more than any I have found myself! What higher recommendation can I give than that?

Thank you,
Will

I bought an incredibly nice Speed Project Lite frame via ebay from danaroby :wink: . Shipping was a bit of a mess, but that was not his fault. He managed to get everything sorted out and helped me with some further questions after transaction.

Really great seller!

I bought a beautiful steel Scapin race frame from danaroby00 and I could not be happier. Great frame, good price, arrived as desribed and perfectly packaged, shipping was not expensive, great communications, what more can you ask for in a seller?

Truly one of my smoothest ever transactions on here, a pleasure to deal with and very highly recommended.

Enjoy!!
