Off-topic: Best places to sell a road bike?

Posted on
  • I feel ashamed for even bring up the geared bikes. But basically I have two road bikes (mid-level steel Lemonds - nothing fancy) that I need to sell.

    I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions of good places outside of Ebay and Gumtree to list them? Anyone had good success with anything else?

  • Cycling plus foum, acf or similar (don't know if cycling plus allow ads in forum)? British cycling.­e/BC/mem/classified_ads/classified_ads.a­sp

  • Cycling Weekly magazine has classifieds. Why the aversion to ebay?

  • in the pub, but make sure you take a three legged dog with you.

    (off topic but i saw your old frame on sunday at polo, i didn't think it was possible to feel nostalgia for something or sometime less than a decade ago but.... snifff)

  • hippy Why the aversion to ebay?

    Theres nothing wrong with Ebay, its probably the best way to get the most money. However, its such a souless place and just recently winners of my auctions have lived outside of where I said I'll post an item. So you end up mucking up, trying to be nice to the gits and invariably relisting.

    And then Ebay and Papypal hive off a lot of that extra money in fees. I'd much prefer to sell to someone whose going to be happy with the bike, can ask questions, maybe even come and look at it before buying etc. I know its so bloody old-fashioned.

  • Not at all. I swapped the Miche cranks off Vegemite for a 1-man touring tent. I got the frame for a 6-pack in the first place. Ain't nothing wrong with the old fashioned bartering. Just curious is all.

  • think i prefer this as well. i'm generally happier with the parts i traded either over this forum or by any other means than ebay.

  • Should we close this one?

  • Never more pertinent...

  • is ok for selling bikes.

  • Fuck me, just noticed resurrected thread.....need coffee!

  • Are these still for sale?

  • More nursery shite
