If someone could explain the difference between RetroBike and a cult it would be appreciated...
Whooooo. Here's a good definition of cult
for you. No plans for world domination here, just like to ride bikes and build old ones.
So, it's perfectly acceptable for the RetroBike community to conspire against an eBay seller by agreeing amongst themselves who is going to bid on a item - which could lead to the seller receiving a lower price than he would have otherwise - BUT anyone trying to openly sell an item for profit on RetroBike is labelled a rip-off merchant and should be ignored?
Stongly worded stuff.
1. Think few people would disagree ebay artifically inflates prices. Â£ 1.5K for a 15 year alu frame?
2. If someone on here is bidding for something why get in a pointless bidding war? Although that said I along with most others would bid against another retrobike member if something was wanted badly enough.
3. Most people have no problem with people openly selling for profit or making a little cash by wheeling and dealing as long as it doesn't take the piss.
