1. Buying used parts on ebay
When looking for a bargain, it is likely these days that you will turn to eBay for used parts. While there are bargains to be had, when buying a second-hand parts, you need to be careful, because you may have a large repair bill to go with the bargain price. Even if the person is not intending to be dishonest, their idea of perfect condition may mean clean but worn out. We see our repairers that have given out bills of well over £100 to make a wheel usable, even though they were described "good as new".

There are a few things you should do when considering buying on eBay:

1) Never pay cash - always use one of the schemes that gives you protection.

When buying wheels:
2) Always collect in person - do not have it posted to you, and do not meet in some car park halfway.
3) Always spin the wheels and feel the hubs for play and smoothness. That the wheel rims are not worn, damaged and that the wheels are not buckled

5. Campagnolo chorus 11 speed cassette spacer (2012)
If you are experiencing any poor performance with gear shifting, you will need to remove your Campagnolo cassette and check the spacer between sprockets 6 and 7 to see if it is broken. It will be unusable and need replacing with the correct one. The plastic spacer is different looking than the other 3 or 4 black round spacers, it has 4 lugs on the back of the spacer.
Where to buy one from! It should be under warranty, so first talk with the shop or on-line shop where you brought your cassette. You will need proof of purchase.

  1. I'm sorry to say but I only by second hand components that I can see, touch and examine ....... long before I part with any cash.

    When I ran my repair business, I got mightily fed up with people describing their bikes as perfect working order but in need of a "service" when asking for quotes - only on inspection found that they had a worn out nail that needed the whole drive train replacing before even starting and the "customer" getting rather frustrated that the re-quote was way beyond their expectations!

    I always recommend that even when purchasing a second hand bike is to get someone who really know's the job to inspect it before buying, so I always recommend against buying from Ebay or Scum Tree unless you are prepared for the nasties!
