Looks like he's over it...this time! lol

Seriously, though, variety is the spice of life, which is why it's cool to hear people express their opinions.  Do people really want everybody to be penguins who think alike and do the same things?  Not me.  That would mean that I would never learn anything.  Dude was just venting in what he hoped was a safe place -- NOT!!!

Re: buy on the bay and sell on the museum

Pretty douchie to ask for a deal from a member then, turn around and flip it on here. Just my 2 cents.

Re: buy on the bay and sell on the museum

To buy something on the Bay (where buyer usually pays shipping) and sell it here (where seller usually pays shipping), markup would have to cover shipping twice just to break even.

Re: buy on the bay and sell on the museum

Alright I usually stay out of threads like this but I can't help it this time.....


I buy parts to build my bike, when my bike is done I will buy parts to build another one. I prefer to give someone here on the Museum a "Bro Deal" because other members here have given me the "Bro Deal" before and I appreciate it so I choose to pay it forward. I don't like selling my bike stuff because I have no idea what it's real value is and I don't wanna be "That Guy" who sells a part I bought for $5 to someone for $80 just because it has the name Hutch on it.


Truth be told it's the owner's right to do with it as they want, whatever that may be, but in my humble and completely unimportant opinion to buy an item for the sole intent and purpose to resell it at an astronomical profit is a piece of sh*t move. If you are "That Guy" then all you really are is a predator sucking the money out of your fellow BMX enthusiasts that could have otherwise gone to additional parts for the all important bike build. Just the other day I was reading a thread on here about "why are prices getting to be so high?" ... Now we all know the answer. I get the philosophy that "an item is worth whatever someone is willing to pay for it" but seriously you don't have to be a douche about it and skyrocket the price. Make a profit to support your hobby fine but 80% - 100% markup is BS.

Its like gas prices, everyone bi*ches about how high they are and how "it's not fair" and how "Obama should do something about it" but guess what chump you still pay it don't you so I guess gas really is worth over $4 or $5 a gallon now ain't it so shaddup and pay those oil companies Billions of dollars in profit every year, after all you weren't willing to refuse buying gas because the price was too high, you bought it anyways so I guess it was worth it.  neutral


That being said I bought my 1991 R.L. Inc. Bashguard Bully 1 for $150 seventeen years ago, I'll sell it to you tomorrow for $3,500 if you want it just PM me... lollol





Rant over you may now proceed to bash me also.

alright... this is the 4th time in a month i've been sniped on a part i wanted only to find it on the museum a week later at a HUGE mark-up. i don't mind getting outbid but c'mon. i understand that the world is full of schmucks so i don't need a reality check. enthusiast forums are usually places where people look out for one another.

rant over.

I agree....Unfortunaltly, I think some dudes who still live in their parents basement make their living doing this.  But hey, God Bless America. But it does suck!smile

That never bothered me too much but I recently got a PM on something I was selling and the member wanted a HUGE discount, but like SRooster said, I like to help a brother out too. I made a couple extra bucks that day so I gave him the steep bro deal discount. 3 days later it was posted on the museum for 2 times what he paid me. Usually I dont care, but man... I felt used when my intention was to hook a brother up to help complete his build.

Re: buy on the bay and sell on the museum

I have sold stuff on here and then seen it reposted a couple of months later with the new seller asking 75% more after a little cleaning and some TLC that I was unwilling to give. It was my decision to sell at that price after doing some homework. That's just way it is and I accept it. I have done it and I turned right around and spent everything I made right here. The more I make on something, the more I spend and it's more likely that everyone here will see some of that money.

I have learned that some people look at it the way I do while others take it personally. People get really attached. I do my best to treat metal like metal.

A bro deal to me is pretty much giving a smoking deal with no expectations or rules. If someone tries to pressure that type of deal out of me, they aren't my bro.
