You never get outbid by 1p. The final price is always 1p/50p/£1/£5 etc (depending on how high the price goes) above the second-highest bid

thanks for clearing that up......i knew someone would!! :facepalm: :wink:


Oh did you already know that? I always mention it as I remember being pissed off for about a week when I missed out on something by a pound! Then I realised... :-)

it's the snipe bids that piss me off when i'm out. if i'm at home, and bidding then all is fair in love and war :evil:

as for paint, we will do it at work. as for colour.......probably some sort of linear fade, maybe including some mazda colours and tinted laquer.....we'll see 8)

I out a bid of £30 on with 60 seconds to run and was outbid in the last few seconds. Glad it was outed on here but also secretly glad that I didn't win or I would have to store another at work and sneak it home in the dead of night. Good luck to 'zetecmk2' for out bidding me, you have saved me a real headache. I know its only a £30 frame, but then I would have had to buy an XT groupset to go with the D521's that are sat around then some nice bits to hang off it and then I would have spent far to much on painting it. Domestic dispute avoided again.

These look great in the Neon green colour with black forks I think - that won't be too pricey 8)
