Windproof gloves turned to be pretty waterproof too, and perfect for snow-balling, excellent!

Carbon h/s spacers - irresponsibly feeding a junky's habit at ridiculously cheap prices, disgraceful...

L/h rapid fire, just what I needed.

Chainring bolts that fitted just right (unlike mine) until I sucked them up the vacuum & crushed them (honestly! Fortunately the vacuum's fine)!

Chinook 22t, much better condition than it's any right to be given what I paid for it - looks good as new! I'm starting to feel like I'm ripping him off, but the tight sod still hasn't made me a brew, so I can live with myself :lol:

Sure I've had some other bits too, always been more than happy they are as described, or usually much better than expected!

Top fella - a proper biker - can't recommend him highly enough!

Plus the coordinated end-caps are coooool... 8)

By day he spends his time fiddling with bikes, by night he is surrounded by scantily clad inebriated ladies, he gets paid to go to nightclubs and festivals for christ's sake!!

By rights i should hate this man for the charmed life he leads, however it is always a pleasure dealing with Alex.

All good as usual, cheers Al 8) 8) 8) 8) 8)

Bought a Cannondale F700 frame and Headshok forks off Alex. Was very well packed with the essential packing between the rear drop-outs, not everybody does this, and it all arrived into my sweaty paws in less than 23hrs. He also responded with patience to my questions for details on the precise size of frame as I wasn't sure it would fit me. All OK though.
A hassle-free transaction from beginning to end, so thanks.
