    Is anyone on here in contact with RustyFox? I sent him some money for a bike a while ago (going on a few months now) and i heard from him periodically and he had some health stuff going on so i said take your time, but things seemed ok and now its really dropped off. He was going to box it up and me provide him a label. He told me it was boxed up 2 or 3 weeks ago but never got me dimensions. Now its been 10 days since ive heard from him. Idk if something happened to him but i.d. really like to know if hes ok and if i can expect the bike still or what to do. :(:(

    This is not a bashing thread im just wondering if anyone is in contact and knows if anything is going on. i.d. like my bike :( or if im lucky to get my money back. Hopefully he is ok.

    Thanks everyone.

    This is frustrating to hear. Your a very good and honest person and let's hope it's not what it sounds like.

    Amanda,
    I don't know the guy or have ever dealt with him but it looks like he logged on 13 hours ago, so one can assume that he's alive and kicking.

    Good luck, I hope this does not drag on like the other ordeal you went through. But on the bright side, at least this guy is not in Switzerland.

    He only accepted money orders. I ended up sending cash since it was only $200. And i figure people on here are honest. Ive noticed he has been logging on too and thats why i really dont understand what is going on.

    Consolation prize: if he is ill then might be dragging his feet, unwittingly not realizing, it's causing what he could be misdiagnosing as depression but actually mental fatigue. And if that's the case, then, you and he may be in a rock and hard place.. Spent the money no got's the shipping fees and no understanding what fatigue is and how to get out of it. And yet even if has shipping fees, fatigue can and will prevent motivation to get the job done. Spirals into a total mess.

    I know I had it years ago, and until realized what it was, blamed my self, until I learned to reorganize my business plans or deal wit the limitations in more orderly fashion to get head out of water. Sickness and fatigue are some real pain in butt that causes depression on U sense of , for lack of better word, self image which complies into worse and worse conditions. . Fortunately for me, I realized it and my limitations before things got worse or cause anybody else harm. . Yet continues to plague my ability to succeed higher goals and or get things completed as I did in the past. .

    Just a, although doesn't solve, but just a thought that might help smoothen out yawl's problem. Illness + mental fatigue = self worth depression = sucks for all.

    Pill not gonna solve that, only realization of limitations and learning to allow more time than expected to deal wit it. I.E. dead lines with extended completion periods that fit daily schedules.

    Can't believe it happened again! 200$ is a lot of money where I come from. I don't care if it's 20$, unless there's some kind of real emergency, which does happen, there's no excuse for not contacting you. Don't put something for sale unless you are ready to deliver, that simple. Don't put a bike for sale unless you have a box on hand, about to go on vacation or any other crap like that. As soon as I have your money, it's a race for me to get it to you. That's my spill and I'm done. Hope you get it resolved and hope he's not in a real jam.

    I think this problem has no place on the forum. Deal with the individual by yourself. This happened to you before and you learned nothing from what happened. Stop buying unless you can see, ride and pick up the bike yourself. Roger

    Well there goes us Cali Cartel from buying anything out east. Your right, let's not buy anything off this forum and for sure don't discuss it if you get burned. Only use Craigslist from here on out. :rolleyes: Over and out.

    Dude what is your problem? If people should see things in person before buying anything, what would the point of selling on here be? I dont appreciate the comment about me not learning from my last experience. Why dont you back off my post. Youre not being helpful.
