I'm gonna keep the details as foggy as possible so it doesn't seem like I'm trying to circumvent Bike Forums' equipment sale policy, which I am not, but I wanted to ask the smarties here a question:
Recently got a hybrid, love it, don't want it and my much-maligned road bike. Nothing wrong with the road bike, just don't care much for it. I figure I'll try to sell it on the local bike club's message board as well as Craig's List, then spread my wings a bit if a local sale isn't working out.
The question is: what kind of loss do you guys usually take on stuff when selling? Bike cost me $1,050 in November. Has about 400 miles on it, if that. No mechanical problems. Don't wanna get into specs for fear of this post sounding like a for-sale ad. I figure bike cost me $1,050, at this point, I'd be happy to get $750.
Is that unrealistic in these days of price gougers and should I be prepared to go lower?
Thanks for the help.
