You might do better to post your location in your profile's location field - someone in closer proximity with a possible candidate bike or lead might be more likely to contact you.

We all know it's nice to avoid postage/frieght costs & packing hassles where possible

Just sayin' n all

further to my earlier point about your location, dxprince - not every seller would/could be bothered packaging or arranging freight irrespective of how cheap you may get it yourself. I know this frustrates me about some e-bay sellers :)

roger: unless I am getting you muddled up with someone else - was that Hillman on ebay about 6 months ago? verrry nice - if it was/is ;)

Hi HappyHumber, yes, that was the Hillman on eBay 6 mths ago. The frame/fork is going to come up for sale this week. Nice as it is, I am not using it, and I have another project needing funding

I'm 6' 80kg and selling my 15 month old 58.5cm Al frame GIANT OCR2 road bike with CF forks and seat stay, Sora group set. In excellent condition, serviced by dealer and lovingly cleaned every month. Including clipless pedals and Bike computer in sale for $400. Located in Western suburbs of Melbourne, are you interested?
