Used bikes limits your choices. New bikes no prob. Just wondering why you wouldn't want to shop eBAY? I'd say bike sites like this one with forums for people to sell would also be a start, but you have no Buyer protection like on eBAY. It's really a No Brainer man, stick with the biggest selling market in the world, eBAY.... That is unless you've been banned or something.

Rubbish. Just because it's BIG doesn't mean it's safe. Buyer protection? Yeah right. When you need it, it's not going to be there to help you.

As always it's buyer beware.

craigslist.org

Literally tons of bikes, with lots of the 'I just bought a killer DH bike, but I don't like it' variety.

You speak from inexperience Sonny Boy Smooth Operator.... If you knew what you were talking about, you'd know about how it all works.

Ripped-off? Yeah it does happen to some, and even me once, BUT using eBAY's Fraud Claim system I was able to get back all except $10 of the $76 I lost.... It takes 90 days to get it though. I thought that was pretty damn nice of eBAY to refund my money after someone else ripped me off.

Say what you want about eBAY, the bottom line speaks for itself....
