I just had 2 deals that didn't go as planned. Won't name and shame.

1) Stem that was measured weld to weld instead of the normal centre-centre making it 2 cm longer than stated and I'd have passed if I'd known.
2) Wheel where seller finds out afterwards that postage was underquoted.
Again - would have passed if correct postage was quoted in correspondance.

I think we need consensus on how to measure stuff like
width of bars, stem length, crank length

And a common policy about agreements on postage.

Can't say I agree, tbh. Don't want this to end up like Ebay, with loads of rules and ads being pulled. I reckon it should stay as a mechanism to introduce buyers and sellers and let them sort it out between them. IMO.
