    Trying to Sell Bike Parts-Need Advice

    Hi everyone,
    I am trying to sell some bike parts and accessories. Some are new in the box, some lightly used, a few heavily used. I have sold a few on Craigs List but wish to try a new medium. I would like to avoid having to ship stuff by mail or UPS (in other words using ebay). I live next to Boston. How do people recommend I try to sell items? Have members of the list had good luck using this forum's classifieds to sell? Are there other online bike classifieds that work well and are free to access? Are there bike shops near Boston that buy used parts?
    Thanks,
    Neil

    If you're not willing to ship, the prices you get will be considerably lower, understandably. You will also have far fewer buyers.

    What's wrong with craigslist for you? It's all I can think of for what you want to do.

    Hi Tom,
    Thanks for your reply. Well, I sold some items pretty quickly on Craigslist. However, the remaining items are not moving. So I am seeking alternatives. It sounds like eBay may be my best option.
