Pick your battles. It's a sin to waste God's precious time.Has anyone run in to this scenario? You see a local ad on FB or CL or ebay and the description says vintage Schwinn bicycle. You view the pix, description and determine this person is not a bike expert and the item is for sure NOT a Schwinn bike. I always feel compelled to contact the person in a diplomatic manner and point out their error. A recent local post had very obvious pix of a Western Auto Sonic Flyer that was labled a vintage Schwinn. I very nicely pointed that out and received a flaming message " My uncle is a Schwinn expert and he is 10000% sure the bike is a Schwinn!" Not giving up, I researched a vintage Western Flyer magazine ad with that exact bike and sent that and another message to reconsider that an error was made - I received a thumbs up reply!
How do members of the group handle these ads? Is educating the uninformed public a bad idea?
