He has a Stronglight headset for £35 as old and abused but I bought one brand new from ebay for £29 off ebay. the things you mention are defo overpriced though, but then I do tend to think the things I buy are worth less than when I buy them, although never feel riped off when I buy things :roll: a bit of a conundrum I expect

The seller is a member of the forum.

I bought a few things at reasonable prices from him, but then made the mistake of saying I needed a Hope front hub he had, as my original had developed cracks.

I bought the hub, which is fine, but at the price he charged, we won't be doing any further business.

ebay is a place for him to try and make a bit of money, if you know who he is you can always ask direct and barter the price down. You can always walk away.
