I'll start the ball rolling for Gruff by saying that he was great to deal with.
Good communications and nice, fast delivery of a well described and clean rear mech.

Good man.

General praise.

Gruff picked up a ropey frame I bought cheap off ebay.
Rang me to tell he'd done it, inspected it and cleaned it up. Kept in touch.

Turned out he was headed to my part of the country a month later so he
stored it, brought it all the way down in one piece for me to pick up.

A great RBer, thoroughly nice bloke. Definitely above and beyond the
call of duty.

Cheers mate ! (now off to build it).

in a nuclear war the only things to survive would be cockroaches and packages from Gareth!!

Totally over the top packaging for 2 shifters made sure that I had to break out my Mr T Blowtorch to get into the package haha

Thanks for the speedy delivery and shifters mate and do a write up on the correct way to package and send an item, because that was the best packaging I have seen.

Cheers,

Mark
