Only playing devil's advocate here, but if the original seller sold a frame for £60 BIN that could be worth £149, what's the problem?
If it doesn't sell for £149 then GG is out £60, if it does sell then the original seller needs to do a bit more research (Unless, of course, he bought it for a tenner or found it in a skip)

I buy and sell a lot of camera gear, every now and then there's a bargain which I buy and re-sell for a tidy profit and the money goes back in to 'the market'
Provided GG keeps buying then sellers are gonna stay happy.

mtbnut - True enough I guess but he's still a C***.

Stewart- Your right he hasn't sold it at that price and hopefully won't!

I rarely worry. I see what he does, have a chuckle to myself at the sillyness but then give it no time beyond those few seconds.

At those prices I don't buy from him but he does his thing, I do mine.

:facepalm: .... your probably right! :lol:

I know a few months back he had an Orange E3 frame cracked on the headtube (wall art), was asking a very optimistic £80 pound for it!! :shock:
But fair play, if people want to buy his stuff then that's there choice.. regardless of price...

Yes I agree GG does overcharge for most of his items but if you will find he is very open to offers and very helpful when contacted, well that's my experience anyway.
