...Let's face it, everyone here wants to save a buck, right? I do, you do, and believe it or not, the United States Postal Service (USPS) wants to save a buck too. That said, you get what you pay for. Recently I purchased a large pile of old bike parts for resale here. Now I could ship out any of these items at PRIORITY SHIPPING... and YOU will pay that price, and you can expect your item in 3 to 5 days. On the other hand. If you don't want to pay a premium price for stuff, be prepared to wait. The USPS is an eight cylinder machine running on 5 (or 4) cylinders right now. It's not my fault, but Parcel Post TAKES TIME! If you buy a part from someone, and have to have it right away, let the seller know, and be prepared to PAY THE PRICE! Otherwise, PLEASE be patient! I don't think anyone here is trying to get over on anyone else...I know I'm not, and Steve is great about raising red flags when it comes to shady characters (and I'm not one). Please, if you have purchased something from me, it's on the way, I PROMISE!! Okay, I'm done...who wants the soapbox now?
