I searched eBay and discovered the model I was interested in did come for sale on a fairly regular basis so I set up a StuffAlert search.
Within a week I received an email alert with a link to the perfect bike. Unfortunately there was a very keen bidder who pushed up price beyond what I was wanted to pay. But I’m patient guy and a few email alerts later I found and won the exact bike I was looking for at the right price.
