    Sorry for your seller's woes.

    I just sold my bike, fuzzy. Put it up yesterday. Got one email. The guy came over at the time he said he was, and bought it. Sorry you're having such a hard time.

    I feel better. I responded, might have been a little(or a lot) harsh but whatever. I'm pretty sure this lady is on drugs though.

    that's the brand name power there. it makes a huge difference (how fast it will sell; you can still get kooks with any brand, of course).

    I wish I could part it out, but then I have nothing to ride for a while.

    could you get the crucial components one by one and slowly integrate them
    into your existing bike? Like frame first, put all your existing stuff on it,
    then cranks, etc. . ?

    another thought (If I can't sell my own crap I'll do everything I can to sell everyone else's):

    you've probably already done this, but I would check out every BMX-specific avenue possible to sell it. for instance:

    -local race track (if any) or even a flyer if people hang out somewhere for flat/vert (is that the proper lingo? lol)
    -lbs that stocks & sells good BMX bikes (I know some shops by me encourage free ads with a bulletin board; others do not)
    -BMX enthusiast sites, if any (hey - did u post it here on BF?)
    -BMX mags/zines/other print publications.

    Even if it costs a little you might do better aiming it at the specific audience...this is assuming you feel people will want it, based on how old it is, etc. This stuff can be funny, I've had stuff that was hot seller item for awhile when fairly new, then dead for a few years, then old enough to be considered 'vintage', and the price pops up beyond the MSRP.

    I think you might get better (and more serious) offers if someone is really into the bike and knows what it is. Anything is better than crazy Peggy!

    That is half the problem. There are lots of bmxers here but there isn't any organized place for us to go. Most people have the stuff they need already or they are trying to sell stuff themselves. I think I have an idea though....

    I was bored so I put this together. That is what the final product would look like I think.

    And I kind of gave up on the whole CL thing.

    The rice burner's frame is getting small. I've been noticing my knees are hitting the stem/bars more then they have been. Plus the frame is from the early 2000. Time for an update. I'd just get a new frame but since the old frame is old I had to get special things that are compatible with it. I think I might have bent the sprocket, which isn't a big deal yet. And I also need new bearings for it.

    Sorry for the bump but I am contemplating again and it involves not selling the bike.
    So at my lbs they have this nice frame on sale for $250. Because of that I can afford everything I want for my dream bike except for the wheels, and I would be taking the forks off of my old bike till further notice...I want to go and buy it since it is right there but gah!

    if your old forks are safe (i assume you meant put current forks on new frame*, and that you haven't catastrophically damaged them while leaping mount flambe) why not? you could probably just save up and get some nice new wheels in a few months; still use the old ones as backups/beaters too....meanwhile you get to ride your current bike till you get all the parts and are ready to build it up.....

    *are you sure the forks will work with the new frame?

    They are indeed compatible, I just have to change the crown race. Bah, I don't know what I want to do. I'm not sure if the math is right but for 47$ I could get the frame I originally planned to get.

    so, $47 for the dream frame - this is different from the one for $250?

    hmmm.....sometimes it;s worth waiting for what you really want....other times ya just wanna do the fast/easy route.

    It sounds like you have the upgrade insanity syndrome...that is what drove me to this forum in the first place three or four years ago.......I had an old outdated road bike and could not decide whether to upgrade or buy new. Drove me crazy. Now I have both bikes, spent way too much...but i do love them both too

    The difference would be 47$ so add that to total amount. I'll probably wait some more. For a bit I just let it go, then I saw that frame in the shop.

    The first one is the original plan, the second one is the frame at the lbs. In the end it would look like one of those. I'm not sure how I feel about the brown and another thing that is questionable is I rather not have brakes on the chainstays.

    yeah, I'd rather have the brake higher, esp for what you're riding.

    good for you - be strong and hold out for what you really want...it's the best bet ultimately.

    Nah it is just a design. The sprocket and stem have a wood grain design too.
