I sold my mtn bike on Ebay the other week and now the buyer wants to return it because he didnt like what he bought.

Do I have to honor his return??

I know nothing about ebay terms so take what I say with a grain of salt. If somehow the product he got was not what was described I would say you should definitely take it back (ie. mistakenly labeling a 52cm bike a 54cm). If they just don't like it, but they knew what they were getting then it is their fault and not yours. If you wanted to be nice you could offer to take it back, but I probably wouldn't do it unless they paid some sort of restocking fee for your time. When I buy from ebay or similar sources I understand that I don't get the same return policy as when I buy from performance bike.

If he just "didn't like it" there's no way I would take it back.  You have no clue what condition it will be returned to you in.  If it's damaged I would have to think you would be screwed.  Also being unfamiliar with EBay's policies, would you get the processing fee or what ever cut Ebay takes back ?

It kind of depends on your terms of sale, but know that eBay favors the buyer.
I would keep all correspondence between you and the buyer in case they open a case in Paypal. It might be less hassle to accept the return.

What did your listing say? I always click the "no returns accepted" option. If you didn't click that, I'd think that would be a question for eBay, not BT.

Absolutely agree with this. If he flat out told you he doesn't like it then it would be good to keep that in case he starts to lie later.

As long as the item matches your description you shouldn't have to accept the return.

I recently bought a new saddle from ebay and the width was incorrect (more narrow than description). I contacted seller to return and they offered me a $20 credit and keep the saddle. I agreed.

Careful often this type of return is part of a scam to get you to refund their money but not return the item back in the condition you sent it.

Research policies on Ebay and however they paid you, plus consider your listing if you allowed returns or not.

A few weeks ago I tore the MCL and ACL in my right knee and the LCL in my left knee in an accident. Can I returned to triathlon? What would that entail?

As endurance athletes, by definition we must go to our borders to find our center. There is meaning in suffering, we tell ourselves, but not in stupidity.

I have a torn labrum in the right hip that I'm getting surgery for this Friday. Also the doctor is grinding some bone that caused it to tear. Do you have any good ideas on returning to training?

Is there a point of diminishing returns? At some point, age catches up with us all. In general, as we age, VO2 max decreases, body fat increases, and muscular strength drops off.

Does it matter how fast you go? Does it matter if you win? No. It only matters that you tri your best and smile when you cross the finish line.
