Horizontal Dropouts... how do I tell without a close up?

Postby .isaac. » Mon Sep 13, 2010 6:43 pm

Can someone please tell me if you can identify a bike with Horizontal Dropouts without having a close up photo of the bikes rear?
Its very annoying when ebayers don't take lots of photos too show you the item close up.

I generally find the "ask seller a question" link useful in these situations

This may help you with link posting EG.

Failing that, you can just copypasta the e bay item number, we'll find it.

I actually always ask a question to the seller of an item that I am seriously considering on eBay. If they don't reply to a question from a potential buyer, odds are that they are going to be difficult to contact if there is a problem with the transaction. I usually steer clear of the buyers who don't reply.
