I can't say that I am on your side with this one. [/quote] Wow, that's insane! It pays for itself, but I have to say that I'm really impressed with your schedule! I'm the same. I read the situation twice to better understand what's going on with it, but it seems he did send you what was pictured, regardless if it was supposed to be the UK/Netherlands/Poland. It seems you're upset that they're not what you wanted them to be, but I'm not sure who's to blame on that, possibly both of you? I don't know anything about biking and/or its equipment, so maybe that's also part of it. I also didn't see the listing for the item. Having said that, shouldn't you have emailed the seller before buying if you weren't 100% sure they were the recent ones? He may have written the auction to sound as though they were, but unless he lied about something, I would just take him up on his offer to refund part of it.
