Is it just me, or do items ending early naff off other people too?

Just recently I was watching a really nice Canyon carbon road frame, a few days into the sale it ended.

Just this week the same thing has happened with two other frames I've been watching, both of which I was going bid on with a view to trying to win either one or the other.

Four days to go, one has suddenly ended, the following day, so did the other.

Now I appreciate a seller can do this at any time, but it still bugs the stuffin out of me.

So it's YOU!

You're the one with three really nice road frames, all too big for you, that you bought just to save me from myself.

Thanks Dave, you're a mate :roll:

Bet I am going to open a barrage of abuse but I think most people with the current ebay fees would rather sell off the bay and just use it to advertise?

I sold a bike for £650 the other week and got hit with a £75 fee :shock:
