Most people with computers, weather a cool Apple Mac or that other PC. Buy kit on line. It's so easy to buy and sell. Just one click and sold or bought. But then you have wait and wait for the Post Office (or the private post service) to deliver. Which is the weak link in the Hi Tech chain. Those kind people have lost or kept for them self to sell on e-bay most likely. One Ritchey bar; USE stem; Crank bros peddals; shim to fit a 1''1/8 stem to a 1'' steerer; Dia-Comp Ahead set. At this rate some body will have a free Mtb :shock: :twisted: And i still can't complete my Tiger Trimble.
One day we will be able to 'beam' over our purchases like in Startrek and then no more lost kit and having to wait weeks to fit it to our Retro stead.
I feel better now :D

Yeah, lost Syncros stem cost me a few quid and about 3 weeks to source another.

The postal service is waaay out of date.
