Was looking for a cheap wheelset on Ebay. Had a bright idea of buying a bike, selling off the bits and getting the wheels for nothing.

Bought this, now I want to keep it. I don't need it, don't have space for it, and don't have any money.

I blame John and his evil website for my downfall.

I hope so. Sounds like a really decent seller as well. I live vaguely between his house and work, so he said he would drop it off tomorrow evening. Saves me the best part of a 40 mile trip.

Well at least I'm not on the expensive hard stuff yet.
Fortunately Kleins are too pretty for me, but gotta resist titanium.

Or you could try an be really brave. Keep the wheels and punt the rest on via the sales bit on here. That way, you get the wheels, do some forum mates a favour and come out of it with more money than you started with :lol: .

Too late. I check the for sale stuff at work, and that auction ended well after midnight.

There's no hope.
