Yes, somethings are scarce but everyone on this list has equal opportunity to check ebay though it's not hard to miss things if you weren't looking for that item in particular. If someone needs a Cyclo derailleur and it's on ebay they no doubt know already.( ex; I have a long list of brand names on my "favorites list" so I know when anything I'm interested in shows up-just a click away). I think most of us like to look at unusual items just for the sake of seeing what it looks like.
