Just a reminder – don’t buy black market parts

Subscriber Post by mh on August 7th, 2019 at 8:33 am

Saddle and seat tube taken from my bike while shopping – and no, no quick releases were involved. I hope whoever gets “such a deal” on it has a 27mm seat tube and has to deform it to securely hold my 26.8mm post. WTB “Speed She” on the loose – not even a particularly desirable seat.

    Don’t buy anything from a guy on a street corner who is out of breath.

    There’s effectively no black market for standard / OEM parts, they’re worth too little. Stuff like that gets passed around the “community” until it’s ruined and discarded. Call it the Portland Empathy Tax.
