On a serious note, be careful when meeting someone - the price tag is high enough that some bad guys could try to force it away from you. I don't know how much better it is to meet in a public place. I suppose it is better, but having someone else with you might be wise.

While it is true that bikes are more expensive in Canada than elsewhere, a lot of the asking prices I've seen on Kijiji and CL have been pretty wildly optimistic.
+1 on the Gear Swap. I have sold a couple of things on there without any issue and although it doesn't get as many hits, I find the buyers to be a bit more knowledgeable than other places. The other option that I have slowly started to avoid is Ebay. Although the prices you can fetch are often fairly good, the risks are a bit more than a local transaction. Also, all of the ebay and paypal fees tend to add up to where it's a bit harder to earn some good coin.
