Yeah we all get stupid questions but I think if it helps someone buy my stuff its worth it.
I myself will usually ask for a measurement here and there, I bought an S works a while back and with my other specialized the sizing seems to vary a bit, so if it says 17 I think great, get a bit more info, namely the seat and top tube centre to centre. A lot of people measure the size themselves, and differently to the manufactures and that means I could be buying a 17 that is in fact an 18.5 which is then F***king useless to me.
Its best to double check, I have asked about two frames on this forum and both times I asked about the measurement to be sure, I dont think thats a stupid question, thats just somebody who is wondering whether to buy or not. I dont think I upset anyone asking that. (one I did buy)
With regard the Kona, I dont ride Konas and would want to check the other measurements. Now I know they came up short so I might fit. I know about my Speshs but not a huge amout about a lot of others. I wouldnt shell out money on something I wasnt sure I would fit.
The stupid ones are obvious and yeah if you want to sell we just have to tolerate it. Worse scenario is the wanker selling a frame or bike for good money and doesnt even reply to a question, doesnt inspire confidence to give them money and hope bike shows up. I had that last year when looking for a frame and it was spot on, yet the guy wouldnt answer a question about shipping. Thats life.
Sorry, this sound like a rant, its not really, probably more devils advocate.
I dont buy or sell that much on ebay, or anywhere else, and since joining this site I have bought quite a bit off of here, its great. This is where everybody generally knows their stuff so it works well. All your retro needs in one convenient location
Anyway have a nice day.
