Is he a fool, or is he just a nice bloke spreading a bit of good karma in the world? Shame there's not more like him.

Nice things happen to nice people so I hope that he has a wonderful year and the strange way in which the world works brings him lots of happiness.

:)

Chris,

Somebody from here bought 4 sets! :wink:

Seller is a really nice bloke, really genuine and knew that if he sold to germany then he would make a ton, but he was after quick money and to have rid with no hassle. Can't paise him enough, he was doing m900 at a similar price as well I believe,

I happen to know that one person who bought cranks off him is not going to be selling at a silly price but will be redoing all his bikes with NOS cooks (although I think he may hold on to a set not to ever be used)
