Melvin, Melvin, Melvin, what more can we say?!

Absolutely ace guy. Everything fantastically packaged and always a good bloke to have a chat with 'bout things.

Would never have any quelms about buying things from him again - he lives in Holland but the transaction is as smooth as if he were next door.

A credit to the community, I also like reading dutch news papers* so his packaging makes a smooth transaction even better! 8)

* I worked in Holland and Belgium for about 5 years on and off, never leaned the language :oops: I love the place, and holiday in Friesland (Harlingen specifically) often... However the news headlines always make me smile, "Groot alarm om boobytraphuis" is the headline on a page Melvin sent this time. :lol:

I feel speshul.... my Merckx arrived at 8.14am this morning, something I'd never imagine owning let alone unpacking in my kitchen.

The freebie tyres are much appreciated!


:D

Mel..

the 1st retrobiker i deal with on the forum... and it went on with several other good deals. No probs at all...

i'd wanna specially mention he's unselfishly letting me have a Fat Max for my Ti-Runner.. and the several PMs to advise on the correct build.

The Man... Mel.. The True Miyata Man

cheers

:D
(pardon my poor english, i've never been mechanical with words :oops: )
