    I had a bike up for sale for $100 on craigs list. reposted it 2 times over a week. The 3rd time I raised the price to $150 it sold the same day. Guess every body knows you cant get a good bike for $100 , good bikes start at $150.
    There are some things a man needs to believe in wether they're true or not;

    Did the same with an old amf three speed, just wanted it gone, so listed it for 15. Never heard anything. A few weeks later I posted it for $50 and sold it the next day.
    What sucks is someone dropped an identical bike off later on, so I still have a clunky old AMF wasting space.

    I mean, technically it's like a sale, but when you're just selling one item, it looks weird.

    Technically yes.. It's not like a gallon of milk that usually costs $3.00 and today it's $2.50 and the sale ends Sunday. A used bike's value is so subjective that's what was making me wonder if it made sense to price like that on CL.

    The notion that any item or service might be overlooked if underpriced is valid IMO. Hmmm, that guy only wants $5 for that Colnago? Must be bent or something.

    Definitely. And I think that some people pass on a really low priced bike because they think it can't possibly still be available. More than once, I can recall thinking, "...oh well, I'll send an inquiry, but I'm sure that bike has already been snapped up at that price...", only to be pleasantly surprised with a great deal.

    Don't know why such a nice looking woman would be seen on such an ugly bike.

    mens 10 speed bike - $50 (winnabow,n.c.)

    That was the ad in its entirety, so I badgered the poster for more info and only got this:

    I'll be riding there to check it out tomorrow. I'm betting on it being a Huffy with a gel seat cover.

    Hi Hipster,
    Are your pink and black Wayfarer sunglasses not getting you the attention you were expecting? Extra tight girl jeans just not doing it? Well, I've got a solution for you! This is bound to make that moped you bought seem totally wiggity-wiggity-wack.
    I think its a vintage Peugeot or maybe a Gazelle, possibly it's a Dutch Rudder... who knows or cares, get this bike and you'll be the talk of the dive bar you hang out in. PEDAL POWER!

    I'm so firm on this price it is ********!
    fire me off an e-dog and I'll holler back yo.

    When stores do that, they emphasize the savings, not the jacked up price later. You won't ever see a store saying "Buy it today, or otherwise we'll double the price tomorrow!" Instead they say "50% off, today only!"

    They also don't start with a low price, they start with the high price, sell all they can, then drop the price if the items aren't moving like they want.

    Why doesn't CL get with the program and offer larger, sharper pictures? Take any picture you want and they'll shrink it down to an unrecognizable 100x100 pixel shot. No wonder these ads always suck.

    Add another layer of awesome with the fact that trainer sweat chews up bikes in a way that nothing short of winter salted slush can match.
