Re: ortho-flex loin rubbing

  Hi , I am in Enumclaw, howdy neighbor.
May I ask a personal question?  I am going to sell my Express Lite because
the seat is just too wide for me.  It is in great cond. 15 inch seat, system
III with merino wool backing, how much did you end up paying for yours on
ebay, i am curious to see how much mine may go for or at least what to put
my min bid.  However I won't sell mine until I get my new one in.
thanks, of course you need not answer how much you paid.  I am responding to
guest, so please check that you have my personal email if you don't want all
to know.........  sincerely..........LISA
