Same sad story I'm afraid. I bought this Rocky Mountain Blizzard frame and it's been 3.5 weeks since payment (May 10th). Not a word from the seller so far. Now I have to jump through a few hoops. Shit. I value my time too much for this crap.

I'm waiting for a couple of things at the moment from 'quiet' sellers. It seems that at times with e-bay all you can do is cross your fingers and hope for the best :(

The owners of E-bay/Pay-pal don't care, its just a big money making machine.

Thanks for the sympathy fellas. I agree, the feedback was a pretty big risk, but it's not a lot of money and I've been looking for a wishbone seatstay Blizzard (and an Altitude) for a little while now. I was stupid for buying, but sometimes the retro passion forces me to make unwise decisions!

Shame really, I've already bought a whole bunch of Syncros kit just to build this bike up with. :?

I paid $135 US$ + $20US$ shipping

I think I overpaid too since I was the only bidder.

I've claimed through Paypal before for goods not being sent, quite easy and got my money back, all you have to do is prove that you have tried to contact the seller and given them reasonable time to send the goods.

Negative feedback should be the last option on the list.
