as far as xbid goes,the stupid website crashed more than 17 minutes before the end of his auction,and i was locked out...i had JUST sent in my bid,only to get scre***...i am not happy.....i cannot recommend that site again......it was not Joes fault,and he is a great guy,but the website cannot handle the load .......very sad,and very bad for business....not only that,but they refused to honor my bid.....when E-bay has a problem of this magnitude,the bids are usually negated,and the item is re-listed......as far as i am concerned,their attitude alone makes it a waste of time to bid on anything at Xbid.........there was a lot of great items too....Rob

Of course someone won the bids on the auction everything was NO RESERVE. BIKEICONS cleaned house on some real nice bikes, as well many others. I would like to thank everyone. Does anyone want me to have another auction. But of course you will have to deal with my double postings...

Thank you, Joe


   RE: Rob, who cares what you think posted by Rizz on 11/15/2000 at 6:59:47 PM
I cleaned house there. I got an email Saturday telling me to bid early, so I did and I got almost every item I wanted cheap. So what is your excuse. Start the auction over for you. Yea why don't you go to the Schwinn page, they were crying over there and I was buying over on Xbid. I heard that he still has few hundred bicycles.

I picked up a great Quaker State clock on Xbid for a great price. I think it's great to have an auction site to visit other than ebay. I'm sure that there are still some kinks to work but Joe sure seems to be open to suggestions. Keep up the good work Joe and I look forward to the next "No Reserve" auction.

most people will not deal will or take serious any
seller going under a false pretense.
it gives the illusion that you have something to hide.
for example, my name and e-mail.
i am hiding the fact that i don't want you to know who i am.
getting the picture?

Sounds like a scam to me.
Rams horn handlebars = fastback
Fenderless = Sting-Ray
Coaster brake <> 5speed
