I paid for some Deore Thumbies from Stocko a few weeks back, he seemed to be fairly active in seller and buying stuff until the day after I paid... and now nothing! I don't think he's logged on since as my PM is still in my outbox

Does anybody know whats happened to him? or how I might be able to get hold of him?

i met him a while ago next to royce engineering in new milton, he lives near by, then he came on a purbecks ride not long after, seems like a good guy and he really knows how to polish aluminium frames! :D i would suggest there is a good reason for his absence and not reading your message.

i know that doesn't really help but having met him i would say don't get to upset i am sure there will be a good reason. :)

I've bought and sold stuff to stocko (Paul) , his communication was always very good so this doesn't seem like him. Hopefully he will come through for you guys unlike brompton who stitched me and a few others up on here.

I may be able to get his address from the courier i used when i sold him some wheels.

My stuff just turned up! Isn't it just typical that the day after I post something then they turn up.

Hope the same has happened to you Marmite King

Yeah, I've been waiting for something for a while, with an unanswered PM and one stuck in outbox, but it turned up today.
- I'm sure the fella will come through..

I've been waiting for a frame for a while now - same thing - pay the money then nothing. I hope the guy is OK, it would be good to know where the frame is though especially as I know he read one of my pm's - hopefully it'll just turn up!?
