I'd like to hear opinions of people that have used Craigslist to sell their used bikes, and I'd like to know if I'm wasting my time on there (because it feels like it). I'm sure it's great for selling old junk bikes when you don't care what you fetch for a price. But for nice bikes, I've not had luck.
Since I have no desire to spend over $200 to ship and also pay 10% of the sale price to eBay, local selling is the only way that meshes with me. I recently posted a year old mountain bike with less than 100 miles on it that I picked up at a LBS for $2000 last year. I can't even pull $1000 for it. And I could understand that if I had a lot of competition, but there are no other bikes like mine for sale in my city, and the other deals I've seen aren't as good. But regardless of the fact that there really aren't any better deals available, it still won't move. I'm about ready to give up on selling it, even if I only end up riding it a couple times per year. I was just kind of surprised there haven't been any real bites. Anyone else having the same bad luck with selling? Or if you're having good luck, do you have any tips? (other than lower the price even more) I've had it posted for over 2 months now.
