Well there you go, my memory obviously wasn't very good... I paid £350 for it. I actually remembered paying £250. Do you see now why I think a £125 refund would be quite harsh? I tried to be as honest as possible in my ad but genuinely didn't even think about saying the threads were stripped. Not sure what else I can say.
if it wasn't already clear - I didn't strip the threads! The bike came stripped, not stated in the advert above. The difference is that I sold the bike 3 years later, with no use, for £70 less, having attempted to fix the issue at my own expense but forgot to say that I'd done so
