Fathead-- AVOID Negative experince

Postby mattythemod » Tue Aug 14, 2012 18:49 pm

Bought some secondhand Roadshoes of Fathead aka real name (deleted) which did not match up to his discription, a fair size gourge in the sole which has resulted in the sole coming apart .

In subsquent pm `s he even admitted that he " overlooked " the fault in question , not sure if this was dishonest or a genuine mistake but he has been unwilling to resolve things and has not replied to my last pm ,dissapointing transaction .

i have to say i'm surprised. I know Sidiq and he's a stand up guy, he does have other things going on so that may well be why he hasn't replied, i'm sure he will soon enough. If i see him i'll mention this thread.

Have to say I'm NOT suprised. Bought an Arione saddle of this person a good while back advertised as good condition and when it arrived it was glued together! Seller had taken a careful picture for the advert and , er, forgot to mention this thinking that it wasnt noteworthy as 'they all end up like that'. Offered me a £5 refund which wasnt the price I paid, instead I've kept that saddle to remind me not to trust everyone who's selling on this forum.

Saddle glued together ....bit of glue used to stick down outer layer of saddle I
Sole falling off - bit of carbon flaking away. I described shoes as a fair bit of chipping on sole and knocked a tenner off asking price at buyers request.

Sorry you are not happy but sold many items on here to people who were

Mat, from what I remember from our pm exchanges there were no outstanding things to be discussed and you were putting it down to bad experience, I don't think I was ignoring you

Here is one of several pics included in the advert for the shoes. This was so buyers could make their own mind up with out relying on seller's description which as we've seen can be 'subjective'. please note 'the sole falling off' is the bit of carbon that has flaked away on the top shoe near the vent at the toe

re the saddle, superglue was used to stick down a small bit of the outer layer that had started to come loose at the rear of the saddle.from memory the saddle was listed as well used and perhaps the buyer could remind me how much he paid for the arione?

Buyer was overall happy with every other aspect of the shoes but disappointed at the description r.e. the sole.

You what?

Do you believe the sh1 te that you spout? If you do you live in a different world and if you dont then you are a liar.

You sold me a saddle that was used. YOU NEVER MENTIONED THAT YOU HAD GLUED IT BACK TOGETHER -do you understand this, this is pretty f***ing significant. There is a world of difference between a well used saddle and a well used saddle that has been badly glued together.

Why did you not mention it? Did you genuinely believe that it didnt matter??? Of course you knew, but who would buy a saddle if you said 'glued together'? I wouldnt have.

YOu didnt have the decency to be honest then and you havent changed. You were a liar then and you are a liar now.

The saddle, well here it is. Would anyone on here feel happy about buying this if they hadnt been told that there was anything wrong with the saddle and hadnt been told that it was glued together

Soon as it came out of the jiffy bag I thought 'the stripe isnt straight'

And that nose isnt right?

The above photo where you can see the sole of the shoe where there is a piece of the sole missing right above the cleat and below the sole ventalaition mesh is a gourge where you can eaily lift the sole by your own admisssion in PMS you stated and i quote

"I know the bit you are talking about. First of all this was an honest omission from the description, I knew there was a good bit of chipping and scuffing which I stated in the advert but admit this bit should have been highlighted more in the description"

Now i guess you would call that delamination of the soleand its easy to lift the sole making the shoes almost wothless , at the very least you should have doen the right thing and offered me a refund instead of ripping off another cyclist and going against the trust that is earned on these forums .

Now as for that Saddle , its not my fight but IF you sold it in that condition then you should be embarassed and ashamed .

I think fat head is essentially saying you can whistle for your refund.
